Find your inner rhythm in an upbeat 90-minute Sunset Flow, suitable for yoga enthusiasts of all levels. It’s nothing fancy, involving just your mat, orange skies and sundown at Waterfront Promenade – but a wonderful treat for your senses nonetheless. The session ends off with a pop-up performance art segment where participants work together spontaneously to create a mandala display with lights.
