This will be a 60 mins empowering Baptiste-Inspired yoga class practised using natural heat of around 26-32. (In Singapore the outside temperature generates enough heat to safely practice.)
We will follow a set sequence but the flow will be differentdepending on the intention of the class, the level of the students and how your body feels on that day.

 

 

With a strong emphasis on breath and modern alignment cues, it will be challenging no matter where you are at in yoga journey. Be prepared to shine BRIGHT and sweat it off!

Why do I have to book a mat and how do I do it?
This to ensure that you have a spot reserved for you due to the small class size. Please email soph.kassim@gmail.com to reserve your space.

 

 

Why is the class size small?
For practical reasons, the function room is not able to take more than that.
For students’ benefit, a small class will also ensure personalised attention from the teacher.
When do I need to arrive for class?
Make sure you arrive at least ten to fifteen minutes early to make payment/do registration, change, unwind, and settle into the room so you’re ready when we begin class.
Where do I get yoga mats?
I’ve written a post to help you find your perfect mat whatever your budget or your needs are. To read it, please click here.
I’m REALLY new to yoga. Is this class suitable for me?
This class is multilevel. I will offer modifications/challenges depending on the level of students in the class.
I am not flexible. Can I do yoga?
Definitely. Yoga is for everyone, flexible or not, old or young, female or male. Yoga is not about flexibility, but is a practice of being a yes to come as you are, and celebrating the uniqueness of your body and your mind. We will learn to modify/adjust accordingly to get the poses to fit your body rather than the other way round. With consistent practice, you will get stronger and more flexible.
I have an injury/issue with my body. Can I do yoga?
It depends. Firstly, you need to ensure that you have your doctor’s permission to exercise. Secondly we will need to see the extent of your injury/issue, and I would highly recommend a couple of private sessions, so that we can explore your movements and learn suitable modifications so you can still follow with ease in a group class setting. Otherwise, just come as you are, and don’t forget to let me know before class starts, so I can guide you accordingly. Email me at soph.kassim@gmail.com if you have any further questions.
Can i practice if I am pregnant?
The postures practiced during pregnancy are dependent upon each mother’s levels of fitness, health and state of pregnancy. To determine the suitability of practicing pre-natal yoga, it is advisable to consult your own Gynaecologist. Would also recommend a couple of private sessions, so that we can explore your movements and learn suitable modifications so you can practice according to how your body feels in each class. Email me at soph.kassim@gmail.com for further enquiries.
Cancellation Policy
At least 24 hours, to be fair to the other students who may want to get a mat but isnt able to, due to the limited mat space.
