Whether you couldn’t touch your toes even before getting pregnant or were regularly doing headstands without a care in the world, there are good reasons to start doing yoga now that you’re expecting.
If you’re a mum-to-be who’s been watching your body change over the past few months, yoga can help you adjust to the changes and also prepare yourself for the physical demands of childbirth.
Prenatal yoga classes in Singapore are usually a bit more expensive than regular yoga classes, because the teachers are usually specially trained to teach it.
Here’s where you can take classes and how much you’ll need to pay.

Art of Yoga
This cosy boutique studio in the East Coast area offers a welcoming alternative to the bigger, more impersonal studios. If you live in the east, this is one of the most affordable studios out in Singapore for yoga.
They conduct hour-long prenatal yoga classes several times a week. They also have postnatal yoga classes, though they are not as frequent.
This is one of the few studios where prenatal classes cost the same price as regular classes. A 30-class pass costs $575, while a 20-class pass costs $480. Both are valid for 6 months. A 10-class pass, which is valid for 4 months, costs $260. Trial classes are open to long-term residents of Singapore and cost $10.
The only downside to this studio is that there are that shower facilities are limited and the location is rather far flung for people who do not stay in the east.

Their prenatal yoga classes are designed for women who are 20 to 36 weeks pregnant. With a maximum class size of 8 and a focus on spinal alignment, developing your birthing muscles and deep breathing, this is a class for ladies who are doing yoga to prepare for the birthing process.
A 40 session pass costs $1,080, 20 sessions cost $600 and 10 sessions cost $350. If you’re unsure, try a trial session for $45 first.

This boutique yoga studio has expanded to four branches, but still retains a rather friendly, cosy atmosphere compared to the big chains.
They conduct pre-natal yoga classes at their Guillemard, Punggol and Tampines branches, with Punggol having the most packed pre-natal schedule, at three classes per week.
These classes are appropriate for pregnant ladies at any stage of pregnancy, and are gentle enough to be safe all the way up to your due date.
They don’t offer free trial classes, so you’ll either have to purchase an 8-class pass for $280, or test out a single class for $40.

True Yoga, which is affiliated to the True Fitness brand of gyms, has one enormous outlet at Pacific Plaza comprising 9 studios, and is suitable for those who live or work in the city area and are looking for a gym-like atmosphere with a packed schedule of classes.
Their pre-natal yoga classes are targeted at women who are four to eight months pregnant. They also have post-natal yoga which you can start practising 3 months months after a natural birth or 6 months after a caesarean.
The studio is equipped with showers, lockers, steam rooms, a relaxation lounge and OSIM massage chairs, and you can book your classes online.
They are having a promotion right now offering membership at $65 a month. As a member, you can attend unlimited classes, although you should be prepared to commit to a long contract. Contact them for a free trial class before making a decision.
If you’re not an existing member, this might not be worthwhile as you’ll have to pay even for the months immediately before and after delivery during which you will not be doing yoga.
