Curated with the wellness enthusiast in mind, we’ve put together this Wellbeing in the City Guide to Singapore to share our favourite yoga and pilates studios, healthy eats and where to stay and spa.
“Discover the infinite possibilities of a rebalanced body, mind and spirit.” COMO Shambhala is a healthy living philosophy inspired by the mythological kingdom of ‘Shambhala’, which in ancient Buddhist texts denotes a sacred place of bliss. The belief is that everyone can find tranquility within themselves by exploring body, mind and spirit.
COMO Shambhala continually asks what the synergy between these different modes really means in order to refine a holistic approach balancing the head, heart and physical being through the intelligent combination of modern science and hands-on healing.
Carefully attuned wellness experiences therefore derive knowledge from both East and West, with the nurturing inspirations of world-class experts helping direct individuals towards better health.
Yoga, is the activity that rests at COMO Shambhala’s heart. Whether an absolute beginner or an experienced practitioner of a specific style, COMO Shambhala provides nurturing tuition. Specialist tuition in Pilates is also offered to improve core strength and flexibility.
COMO Shambhala Urban Escape offers holistic yoga in Singapore in addition to Pilates classes and therapeutic massages. With a heritage of more than 23 years, they are one of Singapore’s most experienced and exclusive wellness centres for mental and body health.
COMO Shambhala Urban Escape offers scheduled group yoga, Pilates and GYROKINESIS® classes with experienced, internationally accredited instructors. All our classes are offered at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, with one-on-one sessions easily arranged.
