Yoga studio in Dhoby Ghaut closes suddenly, members lodge police report

SINGAPORE - Members of a yoga studio in Dhoby Ghaut lodged a police report after the studio closed, reportedly without prior notice, on Friday.

A notice on the front door of Sadhana Sanctuary, located at Penang Road, states that the studio is undergoing renovation till the end of July.

Ada Natalie, 22, filed a police report with 10 other members on Friday.

Ms Natalie, who paid $1,399 for unlimited classes over a period of two years, told The Straits Times she received a rude shock when she realised the studio was closed.

"For the past few months, I noticed that the (yoga) instructors were leaving. I wasn't surprised when I saw the notice. I didn't expect it to be so abrupt," said Ms Natalie, who is unemployed.

She said the police had advised the group to file a claim at the Small Claims Tribunals.

Mr Seah Seng Choon, executive director of Case, advised affected members to file a claim at the Small Claims Tribunals. He added that members can also lodge a complaint at Case with supporting documents such as sign-up forms and receipts.

The Straits Times could not contact the yoga studio at its listed number.
