When you’re trying out yoga for the first time, there’s plenty to consider. The last thing you want is to be in a class so packed, you find yourself elbowing a fellow student, or worse, looking around in bewilderment as everyone transits seamlessly from crow to headstand.
To help you ease into your practice, here are four beginner-friendly boutique yoga studios we love. They offer small class sizes, cosy environments and most importantly, patient teachers so that you can concentrate on reaping the health benefits of yoga.

The Yoga Co.: Singapore’s First Home Concept Studio
Tucked away at Pahang Street in Bugis, The Yoga Co. feels a lot like your second home — even if you’re visiting for the first time.
There’s a kitchen with free-flow water and tea, a living room where you can laze on a couch, as well as a bright and spacious room for yoga practice. They’ve even gone to lengths to provide plastic bags for your dirty clothes.
Beginners and seasoned practitioners are equally welcome to join the Hatha, Ashtanga and workshop-style classes for arm balances and inversions.
If you fancy an intensive workout, try their signature Triple Threat Bootcamp, which consists of yoga, HIIT (high-intensity interval training) and calisthenics. Packages range from $320 to $750, with a single drop-in class costing $35.
On finding a yoga studio:
“We believe the right studio varies for everyone. Ask yourself: Do you feel comfortable being in the studio? Do you vibe with the instructors? How adventurous would you be in trying new poses in a class? Keep all these in mind when picking a place to develop your practice in.” –Sha Halim, Studio Manager at The Yoga Co.
