Imagine doing yoga amidst Singapore’s magnificent skyscrapers, with the iconic Marina Bay Sands and Singapore Flyer as your backdrop. Almost 480 participants did just that at Yogaspiration 2015, organized by My Paper and Marigold HL Milk and co-sponsored by True Yoga.
The slight breeze and the cool air at the Lawn @ Marina Bay was a welcome respite from the hot afternoon earlier. The evening kicked off with a relaxing sunset session of Yogalates by True Yoga instructors Tracey and Kai Xin. Participants discovered the fusion of Yoga and Pilates – the perfect work out to stretch out their muscles after a long day at the office.
In between yoga sessions, participants were entertained by the infectious rhythms of Bloco Singapura’s drum beats while snapping selfies and enjoying their Marigold HL Milk.
As the sun disappeared, participants took their cues from Jade and supporting instructor Sabine for Moon Salutations, the second yoga session of the evening. True Yoga’s first-ever outdoor Moon Salutations session helped participants wind down and prepare the mind and body for a restful night.
The session was almost magical, with participants moving in unison under the night sky, while True Yoga instructors, Francis, Sagar and Khatip stood by to ensure everyone was executing the postures safely.
The crowd enjoyed the rest of the evening on their mats, sipping on Marigold HL Milk while being entertained by popular local bands, Hubbabubbas and Jack & Rai sang their hearts out to entertain the crowd.
