Self-discipline, or Niyama, is one of the eight limbs of yoga. While our second-home yoga studios keep us in check with our asana practice, working from home amid the Movement Control Order (MCO) admittedly can leave us feeling restless and demotivated both on and off the mat. Or perhaps it’s now that you’ve begun your journey (yay!) and you’re looking for resources to learn and grow. Luckily, some of our favourite yoga teachers and studios have taken to Instagram to keep the community going strong. Have your mat ready and keep a look out for these stories and live notifications:

1. The Flow

When a class is called Kill That Core-Vid 19, you know it’s going to be intense. Teachers like Aaron Chow and Jennifer Ooi have been bringing the flow and post-Savasana good vibes to you with the most creative Vinyasa flows. Coming up on 28 March is a love Instagram takeover featuring international yogi Hiro Landazuri at 9.30am. The Flow is also raising funds — all gestures of donations will be directed towards Rumah Kita, a transit home for single pregnant mothers in need of daily essentials during the MCO, and a number of local charities involved in Covid-19 aid.

2. Moon & Soul

Moon & Soul loves getting spiritual, and if you love a yummy yin practice to cool down, get ready for these at-home classes. So far, Jan Nava has a class up on their Instagram page called Wake Up & Flow that you can do without having to leave your comfortable bed, designed as a stretchy flow that wakes you up and helps you start — as they put it — “an exciting day… of staying home!”. Nana Zul also has something up; a more energising Everyday Flow where you can put on your own favourite yoga tracks and get super sweaty.

Omies can get their mat practice in with Instagram sweat sessions with the founder of Omology herself, Kylie Denis. With a space set up in her living room, Kylie has posted a full core-themed class that adorably features her husband. Currently in lockdown with the couple is Sri Lankan yoga teacher Aaron Wik (@aaron_wik), who was teaching a number of workshops and classes in Omology and around KL right before the MCO. Check him out for killer classes and mini tutorials, like how to get into bakasana, known as crow pose.

4. Urban Springs Pilates

Barre is an exercise heavily influenced by ballet, but luckily, you don’t have to be dancer or ballerina to feel the intense burn. Trust us, these classes will have your body aching in the best way possible. Check out the studio’s live classes that are held numerous times a week, including Xtend Barre Cardio Sculpt with Luba Lozovskaya, Xtend Barre Abs & Arms with Jamiliyana Jaafar-Liaghat, and Pilates Fusion Cardio with Billy Loo. Keep an eye on their stories for updates on new classes, starting with an incredible Power Flow with Jennifer Ooi this Saturday that you definitely won’t want to miss.
