For Fans of Both Mat Movement & Equipment

For the Cadillac-Curious and Equipment Lovers
One of the things that’s got a lot of people curious about Pilates is the variety of equipment used in sessions. If this sounds like you, One Wellness Fitness Club is a great choice because their studio is equipped with Reformers, Cadillacs, combo chairs, ladders, and Reformers with Tower and half trapeze.
Wanna stick to the mat and keep it simple? They also have classes for that—plus, a hot Pilates mat class designed to really help you work out a sweat. They also offer yoga, dance, and therapy classes.

Pilates Flow @ 2nd is one of the most popular Pilates studios in the country, and they pride themselves on making the traditional Pilates method safe and accessible to people of different body types and experience levels. You can only book a spot at their 8-person group mat classes if you’ve had prior individual or duet Pilates sessions with them.
If you prefer Pilates with equipment (e.g. Reformer, Cadillac, chairs), individual and duet sessions are your options—no walk-ins allowed. This is so they can ensure you get proper attention and focused instruction as you learn how to move safely and use different pieces of equipment. Their studio is located at 733 Bukit Timah Road and you can check out their website here.
For Workouts With a Soothing Ambience
The highly popular Powermoves Pilates in the Park has two studios operating in Dempsey Hill and Novena Hub, both offering a spa-like ambience with lush greenery.
