Pilates classes in Singapore: 12 pilates studios you should check out

Pilates is the perfect exercise for those of you who are looking to focus on your body’s core. For this reason, Pilates develops much of what fitness enthusiasts need — strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance, and good posture — with a much lower chance of injury than with other forms of exercise. (By the way, if you’ve been wondering about the difference between Pilates and yoga, we have done up a guide for you.)

So you want to stick to your fitness goals, but, ugh, you’re tired of the same ol’ treadmill. We feel you! Take a break and try a low-impact and calorie-burning workout instead with Pilates classes. Interested? Then keep reading for the 12 best Pilates studios in Singapore.
