Those who are not a fan of crowded classes, but find private classes too costly, now have a new option: home-based yoga classes.
Miss Alyssa Christudason, 26, is one who recently jumped on the home-based businesses bandwagon, a concept already popular today.
While commercial yoga classes are usually conducted in groups of 10 or more, Miss Alyssa Christudason, 26, restricts her classes to a maximum of five students.
She wants to give them individual attention and the classes are conducted in her home, where space is limited.
The health promotion consultant with the National Healthcare Group (NHG) is among those jumping on the home-based businesses bandwagon.
Miss Christudason started offering yoga classes in her Novena home on weekends last August because she had benefitted from the activity and wanted to help others reap the same benefits.
"My mum had cancer. That affected me mentally and emotionally, and I needed some help," she said.
'A way of life'
"Many people think that yoga is just about postures. It's a lot deeper than that. It is literally a way of life. I want people to know that they don't have to take medication or spend lots of money. You can do simple things in your home."
It all started when she returned from her training in India to be a yoga instructor and had to clock 120 hours of practical teaching to become a certified yoga instructor.
Miss Christudason, who was then between jobs, messaged her friends on Facebook in the hope of getting some of them for a class.
