Singapore’s wellness communities for those who like to work out with friends

Lately we’ve seen a fair share of outdoor yoga sessions, a juice crawl and even an upcoming superhero-themed run, and if you’ve been wanting to get even fitter without signing up for long-term memberships at high-end gyms, fret not. We’ve rounded up some local community groups that you should bookmark, so you can enjoy fun activities as and when you like, and make friends at the same time.


Urban Yogis

The people behind the affordable pop-up yoga session at Fort Canning Park and yoga pool party at Orchard are all about practising in a relaxing and social atmosphere and from sessions as low as $5. If you’re keen to give them a shot, look out for more pop-up sessions at the places like Botanic Gardens, Haw Par Villa and Marina Barrage.

Yoga Seeds

If you prefer sunset yoga by the beach, check these yogis out and their monthly Sunset Bossa Flow sessions at breezy and scenic locations such as East Coast Park and Sunset Bay.

This adventurous community regularly organizes outdoor activities from trekking, rock climbing and backpacking, to camping and road trips. Membership is free.

Singapore Adventurous Nature Lovers
