Newly launched is cluster access of Yoga + Gym (i.e. Orchard, Raffles or Downtown) which will cost somewhere between the one location price and the all access price. I am not sure how much, but it is a good idea if you only frequent one area!

Class booking: Available online, 2 days in advanced from 9am – 11pm. Walk in possible. Schedule for following week released at the start of each week eg.11 -17th April will be published on 4th April.
Number of outlets: 3 (soon to be 4)
Asia Square Tower 2
Character: Luxurious looking, somewhat spa like. Colour of light is kept warm. Participants regarded clients rather than students. The new Asia Square Tower 2 outlet has more effort with design.
Condition: Ngee Ann City’s outlet was newly renovated. Well maintained. Chevron house looks like a spa. Asia Square looks the best.
Crowd attracted: Mostly people who work nearby, and they have only 1 outlet access because they will only attend classes near their workplace. For day time customers they’re mainly expat wives, celebrities or yoga teachers.
Class types: Both hot and non-hot available, around 1:3 ratio. A wide variety of class types.
Crowded: Since this is a mega studio, it is very crowded especially lunch time at Chevron and for the famous teachers at Ngee Ann City.
Cleanliness: Mats are moped after every class.
Class timing: Around 30 classes a day at each outlet.

Being a mega studio, there were many of people coming in and out and I didn’t quite like that. The teachers they have here included a mixture of newer ones and older ones. They have many strong classes suitable for advanced practioners, attracting that sort of crowd.
The studio was well maintained for a mega studio. I noticed that all mats are being mopped after every class and that’s great effort because the class sizes are large.
Asia Square Tower 2
They have an in house healthy food store called Nood which is from Hong Kong and sells smoothies, muesli and other healthy food. I like that! Currently available at Ngee Ann City and Asia Square Tower 2, as well as all of their Pure Fitness locations.
Asia Square Tower 2
The new Asia Square outlet is the best designed among all. The rooms are named Asana, Yama, Niyama and Drishti with a private yoga room called Shakti. I like the new effort to give things more life compared to the other outlets which simply number their rooms. Each room has it’s own special feature – Niyama has a hand painted wall mural, Drishti is the Aerial/ Iyengar yoga fitted room and Yama has 2 sides of full length windows. The Ngee Ann City and Chevron House outlet’s yoga rooms are plain without any specific design.
The studio premises has full length windows all over which means plenty of daylight, and I really like this, even though the current views outside now are of construction sites. Design wise, overall it is so much better than the older outlets lacks character, looking too much like a commercial business.
Asia Square Tower 2 – Outside Asana studio
Hand painted wall murals all over the studio also adds to the beauty of this new space, and the lounge area is super big – an upgrade comparing to the other outlets. The changing room and retail area looks exactly like the older outlets though, looks like they didn’t bother designing something new (not that it matters, I’m just stating).
What’s not so great is that for Asia Square, you need to enter through the office building lift and this can be a hassle. You’ll get an access card (free, but $21 for replacement) to a private gantry to the office lifts so you’d better give time allowance for this process of getting there. Ngee Ann City and Chevron house does not require such procedure.
Pure Apparel retail section
Pros: Many classes available, Manduka mats, well maintained studio. They have a good quality gym giving members the option to add gym to their existing yoga membership for just $20 – $30 more a month.
Cons: None really. Perhaps not so nice rooms to take pictures in for Ngee Ann City and Chevron house, but Asia Square Tower 2 is good.

If you would like to have a 3 day trial (instead of the usual 1 class trial should you inquire directly) at any Pure Yoga outlet, let me know and I can get you a free trial. No commitment to purchase membership! This is a really good deal because other studios in Singapore usually charges for their trial!
