How about community centre? about 15-20 people in a class.
If u want more private type, I think there are some private yoga teachers who teaches about 6 students in their homes.

Absolute Yoga, they are fantastic and more of a boutique yoga experience than the larger venues that are available. Its more hot yoga though but fab! Enjoy wherever you may find!

What's hot yoga like? I'm thinking of giving it a try but have low blood pressure so am worried I'll get dizzy or pass out which will be rather embarrasing!

hot yoga is a great way to lose your body fat. But it's quite dangerous if you dun drink a lot of water. During hot yoga you lost lotsa water.

Yoga is good for stretching, maintaining your flexibility and for unwinding and getting away from your mind for a while.

Hot Yoga is NOT dangerous if you are a normal healthy individual! Yes you need to drink water before the class to keep fluid levels up but no more than you should usually be drinking living in a hot climate such as Singapore.
Its a great way of pushing your body a little further than usual as the heat relaxes the joints and muscles therefore increasing suppleness and releasing tension and stresses in the joints. You have to listen to your body and follow only your own practice but the teachers in my yoga studio are hightly experienced and knowledgeable and aware of people should and should not be doing and they watch you like a hawk to make sure you follow the practice carefully.
I started last year and am now a complete addict, I cannot recommed it enough! If you do start then I am sure you will enjoy it, have fun!
