Drenched in natural light, the cosy 25-mat studio tucked away in a quiet corner of Holland Village accommodates both hot and non-hot classes. It also has a unisex changing and shower room. Kick off your shoes and let loose in Flo-ga, a choreographed yoga flow at Freedom Yoga where poses are performed to the beats of the latest radio hit. The goal is to bend, twist and balance through warriors, triangles, lunges and half-moon poses as gracefully as possible. Sounds too challenging for those with two left feet? No problem – the teachers start the class with a warmup and go through simple routines multiple times before piecing them together in the last 15 minutes of the class for the ‘finale song’, if you will.
Class types 12 different classes: Basics and Basics II, Power Up, Power Up 75, Crunch Time, Upside Down, Freedom Flow, Yin Yang, Time Out, Freedom Blaze, Flo-ga and Yogahour.

Jal Yoga is a spacious yoga studio offering a number of unusual yoga classes – one of which is infrared yoga. Frequent yoga practitioners may be quick to dismiss infrared yoga as another gimmick or simply just hot yoga masquerading under a different name. It’s not. Those who’ve stepped into a hot yoga room are no strangers to the heated (and often stuffy) atmosphere of the room where temperatures hit almost 40°C. Infrared yoga is significantly cooler at 36°C but the main difference lies in the way heat is distributed. Infrared heat warms up your body – and only your body – without heating the surrounding air. That means you don’t have to struggle with a stuffy nose and fainting spells which can occur in a regular heated room. At Jal Yoga, each of its 28 mats has an infra heat panel directly above to ensure the infrared heat directly permeates your body – thus alleviating aches, increasing circulation, clearing skin issues, fighting incoming colds and eliminating flu.
Class types 18 different classes including Laughing Yoga, Kinetic Yoga, Upa Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Runners' Yoga, Mat Pilates and Barre.
Price $45 for a single class, packages range from $155 to $159.
