Yoga - Juice Cleanse - The Juice Kit

Strictly adhering to a healthy diet can only do so much; here at The Juice Kit, we believe in adopting a holistic approach when it comes to health and wellness. This means, apart from maintaining a balanced diet, overall good health encompasses several other intricately linked components: physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health.

The first sport that comes to mind when we talk about mind-body fitness is yoga. Over the years, it’s quickly gained popularity especially among women – and it looks like the trend is here to stay. Just over a month ago, Singapore’s largest outdoor yoga session, Yoga Beat, attracted nearly 900 yoga enthusiasts.

With the increasing prevalence of yoga practice in Singapore, classes are bound to get steadily more crowded. In this tongue-in-cheek post, we explore five types of people you’ll likely encounter at a yoga class.

1. The One Who Flaunts Her Body

While the rest of us mere mortals have to contend with problems like camel toe and muffin tops, she is always the picture of midriff-baring perfection, not a hair out of place. She even puts the “hot” in hot yoga, what with her annoying ability to sweat beautifully. Urghh.

2. The One Who Clearly Doesn’t Need To Go To Class

She performs every yoga move with unadulterated grace and military-like precision, making everyone else around her look like penguins walking a tightrope.

3. The One Who Is the Teacher’s Pet

There’s bound to be that one student who would nod away at whatever the teacher says, make sure she holds the teacher’s gaze in the mirror whenever she gets the pose right, and even earnestly respond to the teacher’s rhetorical questions. What is there a grading system in yoga class that we don’t know about.

4. The One Who Talks Too Much

Yoga is a simple meditation technique that brings about clarity and inner peace – and, evidently, she has joined the wrong class. Whether she’s sharing her horrible workday with her embarrassed yoga buddy or, worse, sporadically trying to engage her neighbors in an inconsequential conversation, her hushed tones are particularly deafening in the otherwise Zen atmosphere.

5. The One Who Is Forced To Attend

Maybe it’s because her best friend managed to guilt-trip her into joining the class, or perhaps it’s because she didn’t’ want to waste her membership package … Whatever the reason, her favorite time of the class never changes: when the teacher brings her hands together, takes a bow and says, “Namaste”.
