When i signed up for life time membership, I have asked them, if suddenly yogazone close down, how about our member fee? They din really reply me, they said i'm the 1st one who ask this question.. huh.. But recently just received their letter to waive 2years of maintenance fee due to some award given??

I was Yoga Zone's member for a year.

I didn't really notice any fishy stuff but just feel that the bath room maintenance was not done properly. The last time I went was in early this year, then was busy with my wedding stuff so didn't go for few months...

So when the membership expires in July, I join True Fitness instead.

I attended True Yoga's hot yoga twice... the instructors are from India, I think... and when he said "heels" I always mistaken as "head". Anyway, I find that their yoga instructor is not as caring as yoga zone's. Although he keep saying "open ur chest", but he didn't teach u the correct way to 'open'. I can see lots of member trying to reach the pose, but with their chest collapsed and the instructor didn't correct them. When performing the triangle pose, yoga zone's teacher would tell u to put ur hand on ur shin if you can't reach the floor, so long you stretched ur waist, but for True Yoga instructor, he never care. He just do the pose and u follow. Overall True Yoga's instructors are okay, just not as detail as Yoga Zone.

And I also notice they allow member to walk in and out during the hot yoga session. I don't think it's good for the body as the hot yoga room is so hot, and outside the room the air-cond is so cold.

I must say that I learn a lot of basics from Yoga Zone... and its teachers are better than the other clubs' which I attended before. Previously I was also a member of Celebrity Fitness... the yoga teacher is the worst there.

Hi i just saw the news yesterday. If I interpreted it correctly, the founder of Yogazone has clarified that he's just selling off most of his share out and the operations still remains.

i am member of yogazone puchong too..

they off for 1 weeks.. reason is improvement...

but I can feel that there was no more cleaner, mat no proper clean..heard that YG not pay salary for cleaner.. so they "bye-bye".

It scare me.. really scare me.. my membership will expire july09.. still 1 year to go.. I just wish that operation will back to normal on 4th Aug.. we will find out at least by 3rd Aug, website should populate the timetable for each branch..

I've notice the class start lesser and lesser.. some teacher take off for 1 month, some on EL, some fall sick.. or the true behid there is "NO PAID".. I hope is not.. Change founder, change management or whatever is up to you. Since people already paid.. the operation should continue.. otherwise.. reund the money.. How could the said financial issue? member paid either by cash/CC.. but at the end of tunnel.. there was a some money for YG.. where the money gone?

Lets pray together that everything will turn out to be something that "alrite" :)

Wow...luckily I got away fast.....they asked me to renew my membership in March but I declined since I wasn't really attending the classes....I just wanted to get in shape for my wedding.....but I did enjoy the classes esp Hot Yoga....this is quite unfortunate....now I am in Fitness First....only because my company is paying for it....most of the time I just walk over to read newspapers and drink ice lemon tea during my lunch hour....

I called up the YZ in PD today, no answer so I sms the sales person and guess what? They are closed till 12th Sept cos the club is under receivership now and are not allowed to operate until further notice. I just joined 2 mths ago and have paid for 1 year subscription. So sorry to hear that you have paid so much. Thought I am the only one smarting from the financial damage.

Anyway, I don't have good vibes that the club will resume their business. Lets pray that my vibes are wrong. I do enjoyed the classes very much and I really missed it since they closed 2 weeks ago. I got to know that a few of my colleagues have been a victim just like you and me. If the club is closed down I'll have to look for another yoga centre again. Anyone know anything about MYoga at the Gardens? :(

Honestly..

I feel sorry for everyone here that have to face this issue. Remember all.. you are not alone.. there was 20k member that facing this issue now.

To Ms Lim.. you made the right choice by not renew the membership.. happy for you :)

For the rest (including me).. I'm speechless now.While reading punky and crasygal that cannot reach them.. i tried to call YZ Puchong branch.. nobody answer..may be i will drop by this evening and probably found the another note.

Punky, you said they will closed until 12sept, would you mind to sms ask your sale person, will YG extend the membership to another fews day during the premis is closed down(for yearly memebership)?For mYoga, I heard is expensive and they count by class taht you will attend, not free flow like YZ.But I've to admit that their xlosing time is late.. so you will have more choice on classes.

I think is not easy to get a refund back especially during financial problem.As you said crasygal, I feel cheated too.. the class is bad and very less hot class.The closing time also shorter.. Last time it was 8.30pm, they change to 8.00pm.Then recent close time is 7.45 or sometime is only 7.15pm. Due to work on shift, sometime I finish work at 6.00pm,probably reach there late than 7.15, what class thay I can choose? leftover class?Usually they will have front desk only now. If you need to speak with sale person, they may provide "no-answer" number for you.Will post again after I go and find out what happen to YZ Puchong.Website as date of today 13-08-08 is suspensed
