I’m sure most people will agree with me when I say that there’s just something different when you take your workout from the gym to the great outdoors. Nothing can replicate fresh air, a breeze and the grass beneath your feet.
The yoga community is right on board with the whole idea of working out outdoors because come October and November, a bunch of mass yoga events will be happening in pockets of nature all over Singapore.
Even if you are still working towards touching your toes, there is safety in numbers in a huge yoga class so you don’t have to worry being new to the sport. Plus, it’s not every day so many people get together – it’s going to be cool seeing hundreds of people doing the same pose.

Will Singaporeans be able to break the record of the 600 that took part in Hong Kong’s event in September 2014?

Yoga + marathon = yogathon. Those who scoff thinking yoga is “easy” will have to think again. Performing 108 Sun Salutations (a sequence of yoga poses) in one go is not easy feat and will test both your physical and mental endurance. Yoga instructor Saniya will put the 300-strong class through their paces. But don’t worry, like any marathon, you can always take a break and take in the fresh air.
