Studio Review – LAVA Yoga Singapore

If you’re a huge fan of hot yoga like I do, then read on to find out what we’ve got to say about Lava Yoga Singapore – a yoga studio in the East offering all-day hot classes for a great sweat sesh! Lava Yoga is also the leading hot yoga brand in Japan with over 120 studios.

Facilities @ Lava Yoga Singapore

Lava Yoga Singapore is located inside I12 Katong mall, and sits on the highest floor, with its entrance just beside the outdoor kids playground.

The first impression derived: a very modernized studio, with a touch of Japanese zen. There is also a huge changing room space with more than enough lockers, 8 shower cubicles, 4 hair dryers, and unlimited fresh towels! You literally just need to – bring yourself.

Also, did I mention that Lava Yoga is the only females-only yoga studio in Singapore? This is definitely an ultimate bonus for the shy you.

Classes @ Lava Yoga Singapore

If you’re a hot yoga lover like me, you would definitely fall in love with Lava Yoga – they have hot classes ALL-DAY round!

The lava flow classes are their signature classes, which include Lava Flow 1, Lava Flow 2 and Lava Mix. Of all the classes, Lave Flow 2 is by far Georgia’s and my favorite – it is challenging, mentally and physically – great for intermediate practitioners like us. If you’re someone looking to focus on improving specific postures, they also have catered classes – Open Heart, Hip Therapy, and Abdominal – as the respective name suggests. If you’re looking to sweat buckets, try Detox Flow. If you’re looking to reconnect with yourself, go for Yoga Surya – it’s surprisingly calming. Fret not, the classes are multi-leveled so they are great even for beginners! Personally, the difficulty level is felt based on the pace of the classes.

The many hot classes throughout the day ensure that you can definitely find a class to fit into your busy schedule, instead of adjusting your schedule to fit into a hot class. Their first class starts as early as 9am for housewives who have just dropped their kids off at school, and the last class starts as late as 8.45pm for those who knock off late from work.

I particularly love how enclosed the rooms at Lava Yoga are – away from the traffic, noise and bad air quality. It’s an ultra plus point for me, for sure, ‘cus it keeps you focus effortlessly. I could really reap the entire benefits of a 60-minute practice without having to worry about anything miscellaneous.

Lava Yoga is also known for incorporating specially crafted music into their sequences that subtly guides you to relax yet concentrate, as you execute the practice. I came out refreshed and satisfied after a 1-hour dedication to myself.

On a side note, being a studio that’s heavily centered on the Japanese culture, practitioners at Lava Yoga take on a sense of responsibility by wiping down the mats after each class.

Teachers @ Lava Yoga Singapore

What set the teachers at Lava Yoga apart from other studios is their great approachability, dedication, and willingness to want to help you improve in your practice.

They go the extra mile of staying back after class to demonstrate certain asanas I’ve been wanting to learn, and are generous with their knowledge.

Conclusion

If you’re a fan of hot yoga, wants to try a female-only and enclosed practice environment, and prefers a smaller class size, why not try Lava Yoga for a change? The drop-in is at $40 per class but I promise you, it will be worth it. Most importantly, for people who are thinking of trying out the place, there’s no hard-selling involved.
