Yoga Movement pushes boundaries with its new design-centric flagship studio on Handy Road. Sitting at the intersection of culture, fitness, food and music, there’s no such thing as resting on your laurels for this almost-decade young company.
The studio channels YM’s signature good vibes, warmth of service and sense of community that loyal members know and love, all across a massive 6,000 sqft space. The new flagship studio ups the ante with stunning, spacious interiors featuring 7-metre-high ceilings, finishings of warm wood and splashes of terrazzo. Fans and neighbours will love YM’s new coffee bar and the chillout patio overlooking the bustle of Orchard Road for post-yoga hangs.
The studio offers the seven signature YM class types as well as Pop Up classes, YM’s version of themed classes. All of these classes are multi-levelled, catering to Newbies and seasoned practitioners alike. Those just starting out can join Basics to get acquainted with foundational yoga postures, while those wanting to work up a sweat can opt for the more dynamic Power Flow or one of the Hot classes. With over 80 classes weekly, the Orchard Flagship studio expects to see over 1,600 people flowing in their practice rooms and grabbing a cuppa at the Yoga Movement coffee bar week in, week out.
Intentional design is the starting point of all YM studios. The Orchard Flagship Studio is the ultimate reflection of how the brand has grown, as well as the space it holds in the lives of over 100,000 YM members.

Think of it like your best friend’s tastefully designed apartment — drop in at any time, enjoy the stunning d├ęcor, and be welcomed with open arms.
YM members (affectionately known as YM FAM) can enjoy their classes in one of the studio’s three airy practice rooms — two with Hip Hop-inspired names as an ode to the brand’s identity that’s rooted in culture and music; and one that’s solely dedicated to the brand’s Teacher Training arm, YMTT200. Members can expect striking features such ascustom-designed wallpaper from local brand, Layer Play, as well as floor to ceiling windows.

Other aesthetic details include Yoga Movement’s dreamy terrazzo walls and rustic terracotta brick tiles.

Yoga Movement’s first-ever coffee bar created by the YM FAM, for the YM FAM makes up an integral part of the new studio. They are supported by long-time partner Common Man Coffee Roasters, continuing Yoga Movement’s ongoing collaboration with local culinary heroes to provide quality brews and fuel for the day — best enjoyed on their breezy patio overlooking the bustle of Orchard Road.

The innovative boutique concept is created exclusively for Delvaux by Luxembourg-based artists, Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil, who participated in the Venice Biennale in 2011.

Executed by the Italian firm, Vudafieri Saverino and Partners, a leader in luxury retail design and architecture, this original concept has recently been extended to Tokyo, Paris and London.
