URBAN YOGA at Bedok Reservoir
URBAN YOGA @ Bedok Reservoir
MONDAY EVENINGS, YOGA AND RESISTANCE TRAINING
URBAN YOGIS IS COMING TO THE EAST! Every Monday evening, our classes will combine yoga with elements of resistance training using resistance bands to help you build strength and mobility. Simple, but effective resistance exercises will help to train your muscles to do the work that they should be doing in various yoga postures. Improve the efficiency of your movement and find balance between strength and flexibility.
If you live in the East of the island, then you know that the reservoir is an incredible place to practice. We’ll be on the boardwalk, overlooking the water. Evenings mean that we’ll be basking in the serenity of the night. What a great way to spend a Monday evening, starting off your week with the right touch of self-care.
November is all about GRATITUDE! Gratitude is a positive emotion that is born out of the ability to see the brighter side regardless of the struggles and the downturns that meet us along our complex journey in life. It’s the ability to look to our strengths even as we acknowledge our weaknesses; to see the things we CAN do despite the things we cannot do; to recognize what we have in spite of what we have not. Gratitude is a power behind perseverance. This month, we take these elements into our practice on the mat, to bring attention to the amazing feats that we conquer every day, whether large or small, and to bring our attention to the things that we don’t often pause to be thankful for, like breath, mobility, sensations, emotions, and everything else that are unique to being alive and of being human.
URBAN YOGA (previously Pop Up Yoga) was set up with the idea of building a community for likeminded individuals and with the firm belief that yoga should be inclusive and accessible to everyone! For the love of health and wellness, URBAN YOGA is an approach to give people more opportunities to explore this beautiful practice. The first in Singapore, URBAN YOGA is an initiative, a movement, to allow more in the same community to meet, inspire and sustain each other in the path to leading a healthier and happier lifestyle.

Julie MoksimCo-owner & Yoga InstructorI’m Singaporean by birth, global citizen by lifestyle, having lived in Indonesia, Egypt and India as a child and young adult, and later in the United States, Laos and Myanmar. My spark for yoga began while I was living in Boston in 2003, but my calling to teach grew much later out of the joy that I developed as a teacher’s assistant at the studio that I attended regularly. After completing a teacher training in Bali with Rachel Hull, Anna Smallwood, Emil Wendel, James Newman and Dr. Sujatha Kekada in 2011, I moved to Laos and started a yoga cooperative called Luang Prabang Yoga. Both the yoga cooperative and the immersive retreat programs that I lead under Laos Yoga Retreats have in some ways, put Laos on the map as a destination for yoga. I also co-owned a yoga studio in Myanmar between 2017 and 2019. My partnership with Kathy and Urban Yogis has grown out of a collective purpose to share knowledge and bridge the gap between people of different cultures, languages and belief systems. I trust that when a group of people come together from all walks of life, the opportunity for learning is boundless. Yoga has been an essential platform for these gatherings and for experiences that create more open-minded humans. Today, the biggest influence in my practice and teachings is Edward Clark of Tripsichore Yoga. He reinforces the importance of authenticity in how we express ourselves in movement. Ultimately, this translates to authenticity in life. I’d like to say to people out there, don’t be afraid to find out who you are, and when you find that person, don’t be afraid to be the person that you are!
