The best yoga classes for mums and mums-to-be in Singapore
1. Pure Yoga
Enhance your pregnancy journey with a prenatal class at Pure Yoga. Classes are designed to gently prepare your body for labour – woohoo! Learn to ease your mind, relax your body and simultaneously strengthen it for birth in a community of like-minded and supportive mums-to-be. Muscle fatigue and anxiety (especially if you’re a new mum) will soon be a thing of the past.
Pure Yoga, various locations across Singapore
2. Yoga Inc.
Balance your mind and body (and bubba!) by taking part in Yoga Inc.’s prenatal yoga classes. They nurture mums-to-be by helping mum and bubs strengthen both body and mind. Get involved in some mindfulness too, with the special breathing exercises you’ll be taught. And the best bit? These classes can help you prep for a more comfortable and calming pregnancy by easing your mind and helping you connect with your little one. Psst – make sure to consult your doctor before taking any prenatal classes!

3. COMO Shambhala Singapore
This is a haven for urbanites on the hunt for a calm escape and is a great one for working mums. The prenatal classes help to realign your spine, tone your birthing muscles and ultimately help you relax. Mums who are at least 12 weeks into their pregnancy are recommended to attend these classes. For postnatal mums, regain strength and stability in your core abdominal area, pelvic floor and back muscles. If you can’t find a sitter or bear to part with your bub just yet, babies are welcomed here, too – there are altered poses to accommodate you and your little one.

4. Kate Porter Yoga
We are big fans of this warm and welcoming studio. Their vibe is relaxed, with a distinctive ‘yoga-is-for-everyone’ feeling, and they definitely deliver on this ethos. Kate Porter Yoga (KPY) is a boutique studio with two locations in Singapore – East Coast and River Valley. We offer ‘Yoga for Normal People’ in a friendly and supportive environment, both in-studio and online. KPY’s classes are led by a carefully selected, highly experienced team of teachers with expertise in different yoga disciplines. Email them directly for information specifically on prenatal and postnatal, and even kids’ yoga classes.
5. Inspire Mum & Baby
Inspire Mum & Baby aims to make your pregnancy a smoother and more comfortable experience. With a focus on fitness, health and wellness, the yoga classes encourage safe, gentle movements with active, conscious breathing techniques. As pregnancy progresses, movements and poses can be customised to suit your needs – this is where you’ll learn to trust your body as you gain strength and flexibility.

6. OhmSantih Yoga
This boutique yoga studio perched in the middle of the eclectic Kampong Glam neighbourhood dismisses the ‘one size fits all’ approach. Teachers take it upon themselves to learn the needs of each individual student – very handy in your prenatal and postnatal stages. For expecting mums, relieve your physical discomfort by stretching out in asanas (poses) altered to suit different trimesters. Postpartum, expect to calm your mind with regular classes designed to gently ease you into recovery. Bonus: one-on-one classes are also available if you’re in need of privacy.

7. Om Shiva Yoga
Sit back into your asana and calm your buzzing chakras at Om Shiva Yoga’s spacious, green studio over at Horse City. In other outlets like Chip Bee Gardens, sessions are held in an intimate home yoga studio. Prenatal and postnatal classes are available here. They offer parent-baby classes so that you can shape up without leaving your little one at home.

8. Mother and Child
Mother and Child is your one-stop centre for all baby-related things. Find gentle, easygoing prenatal classes here for mothers-to-be (after the 12th week of pregnancy) – perfect for helping new mums cope with pregnancy aches and pains. Postnatal-wise, new mummies are advised to wait six weeks after a natural delivery and 12 weeks after a caesarean section before they can attend a yoga class. The best part? You can take your baby with you, and the small and intimate classes help build new friendships too!

9. Our Majestic Getaway (OMG) Yoga
Achieve peace in your mind, body and soul at OMG Yoga Singapore, where you can prep your body for childbirth and connect to your growing bubs with prenatal yoga classes. And once the baby has arrived, sign up for postnatal yoga to help regain your pre-pregnancy figure (but don’t rush that, mums!). Classes are also great for strengthening your pelvic muscles… We all know how important those bad boys are!

10. Yoga Mala
We love the idea that Yoga Mala encourages mums-to-be to just take some time out to sit and grow that baby. Whether it’s your first or fourth child, growing a human is a superpower. So, take some moments of peace and quiet and just enjoy! The prenatal yoga classes help with stretching and toning the lower back, pelvic floor, abdominal and core muscles. All of which can take some battering during pregnancy and labour…!

11. Breathe Pilates
At Breathe Pilates Studio, the team strongly believe in the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle by undertaking safe and appropriate exercise before, during and after pregnancy. The varied sessions ensure you get the most benefits according to your pregnancy stage. Breathe Pilates is the first and only studio in Singapore to introduce gyrotonic prenatal classes. Working in 3 dimensions in a circular and fluid movement using special and distinctive weight and pulley-based equipment, the gyrotonic method during pregnancy provides the perfect system for relieving lower back strain, fatigue and constipation. It also helps build stamina for the birthing process and increases blood circulation and oxygen throughout the body – sounds good to us!
