The Yoga Movement Story

Yoga Movement - commonly referred to amongst its fans as “YM” - was founded by Alicia Pan and Peter Thew in 2012. With its first studio opening in a Carpenter Street shophouse, the brand has since expanded 

Since launch, multi-award-winning YM has been committed to delivering the best in brand and service to its members, with an underlying value of ‘accessibility’ infused into their offering and presence.

The team at YM believes in grounding themselves in good food, great coffee, music, and art, creating an approachable atmosphere for the practice of yoga. Currently, Yoga Movement has nine locations in Singapore and has plans for international expansion.

Yoga Movement is now under the MOVE [REPEAT] fitness and lifestyle umbrella of companies, which also includes STRONG Pilates, a 2023 addition to the Singapore fitness scene.

How Did Yoga Movement Orchard Score Overall?

The full client experience at Yoga Movement Orchard was excellent, achieving The Fit Guide 4-Star Award.

The class was also excellent and has won our 4-Star Class Experience Award.

The Highlights

The design and aesthetics of the club was a particular highlight and really added to the enjoyment of the workout. The coach took care to offer personalized adjustments on technique and form, ensuring the first-timer felt comfortable and relaxed.

What Our Evaluator Had To Say

“When discussing packages, the coach was very helpful and let me know that my membership could be used at any of the club’s eight branches.”

“The class was a positive experience, with the coach advising everyone to set their intention for the session at the beginning.”

What to Expect From A Yoga Movement Session

If you want high-quality yoga in a beautifully designed environment, Yoga Movement is your choice. Add attentive, experienced and highly-qualified instructors to the mix and you can see why “YM” is strongly established as one of Asia’s leading yoga brands.

If you’re new to yoga, YM recommends getting a few Basics classes under your belt, which come with a “sweat level” of 2 out of 5. As you progress, a host of classes will cater to your every yoga need and whim - Power Flow offers a fast-paced 5 out of 5 sweat level, with Resistance bringing a strength challenge to the practice with the use of ankle and wrist weights.

Slow, medium and fast hot yoga options are available, as well as relaxing, breath work-focused classes such as Zen.

The Reception Service

While the arrival experience covered the basics well, more effort to build a connection would have been appreciated. The departure interaction was strong, with the coach warmly helping us choose a package, providing lots of useful information.

The Class Experience

Yoga Movement Orchard received The Fit Guide 4-Star Class Experience Award, making it one of Singapore’s stand-out offerings.

Although there was no interactions with the instructor before the class, once the session started she was then friendly, professional and attentive, offering personalized advice and hands-on adjustments. 

After the class, there was a strong attempt made to connect with us, with conversation, smiles and a goodbye.
