Shape is having our first sunset yoga event on November 16, and you don’t want to miss the fun and freebies that we’re so serious about. Mark your calendar now.
After 10 years of Shape Yoga in the morning, we are all ready to jazz up the 11th edition with a sunset yoga event. Come November 16 (Saturday), hundreds of women will gather at The Lawn @ Marina Bay for a memorable evening of yoga, good food, and lots of chill-out moments.
Here are the highlights of Shape Yoga 2019 that will make your registration ($29 per pax) worth every dollar, and every hour as well spent as can be.
Yoga with Pure Yoga
With Pure Yoga as our official yoga partner, you are in for an enriching, purposeful mat time that not only challenges your physical abilities, but also cleanses your mind and soul in ways you wouldn’t imagine. Pure Yoga instructors Natasha Hashim, Henry Phua, Sheryl Lim and Yen Then, each with a distinct style, will lead you through three invigorating yoga sessions so you’ll literally #glowwiththeflow. Yes, three.
Three yoga sessions in 2.5 hours
There will be three sessions of yoga: Yin Yang, pranayama, and partner yoga.
Yin Yang (60 minutes) is a blend of strengthening and softening elements with the purpose of balancing the body. You will experience an invigorating practice combined with long-held deep stretches to cultivate a focused and meditative mind. It’s suitable for both beginners and regular practitioners who are looking to improve strength and flexibility in a complementary way. This class will be led by Natasha and Henry.
Pranayama (30 minutes) is the practice of breath control. This class introduces you to yogic breathing and concentration exercises that help you get into a meditative state. Regular practice is known to calm the mind and revitalise the body, eventually leading to experiences of deep relaxation, peace and vitality. In this fast-paced, plugged-in society, we think everyone – even the most unflappable – will benefit from this breathing and meditation session. This class will be led by Henry.
Partner yoga (60 minutes) is a fun practice that includes a series of poses performed between two people. You will gain a deeper understanding of certain poses, as well as different experiences in new, unusual poses. At the same time, you will build a stronger bond with your partner – or make a new friend! Some yoga experience is preferred for partner yoga, but yoga newbies are welcome to join. Just bring your adventurous spirit along. This class will be led by Sheryl and Yen.
Aromatherapy ritual by Origins
Aromatherapy and other forms of sensory experiences are becoming really popular for their stress-relieving effects. Just before the yoga, you’ll get a dose of aromatherapy brought to you by official skincare Origins. Bottles of the Origins Peace of Mind On-The-Spot Relief will be passed around, and you will be guided on how to use the essential oils (basil, peppermint and eucalyptus) to ease any tension and tightness in the body, through inhalation and DIY massage techniques. #selflove much.
Healthier ice cream from Nuude
What’s a holiday mood without ice cream? We’ve partnered Nuude, a healthier ice cream label by Udders, to bring you ice cream that’s up to 35 per cent lower in calories, sugar and fat. Every participant is entitled to a cup of Nuude ice cream that’s available in four flavours: Dark Chocolate & Cacao Nibs Sorbet (184kcal), Vanilla & Goji Berry (139kcal), Alphonso Mango & Kaffir Lime Sorbet (109kcal), and Strawberry & Camu Berry (106kcal).
Yummy Korean rice bowls from Dosirak
Dosirak, our favourite fast-healthy Korean food takeaway, is sponsoring their signature bibimbaps (Korean rice bowls), Pumpkin Tofu and Soy Sesame Chicken (worth $8.90 each), so your tummy will be happily filled after yoga.
Kombucha drinks from Remedy
All participants will also get to redeem a bottle of Remedy Kombucha, which comes in exciting flavours such as Apple Crisp, Cherry Plum, Raspberry Lemonade and Ginger Lemon. As you know, kombucha contains probiotics – good bacteria that helps to strengthen gut health.
Chill-out night festival vibes at The Lawn @ Marina Bay
If you work in the CBD, you should be familiar with the huge rectangular grass patch located right above Marina Bay Link Mall where Downtown MRT is. At Shape Yoga 2019, that grass patch will be transformed into an Instagrammable, buzzing space flanked by fairy lights for a super dreamy ambience.
Adding to that, Pure Yoga and Origins will have chill-out zones at their booths, with bean bags, outdoor cushioned chairs and even a garden swing for you and friends to lounge around. And did we mention that you’ll get an unobstructed view of the iconic Marina Bay Sands? Get your holiday mood and camera ready.

The contents of Shape Yoga 2019 goodie bag include a pack of OptiBac Probiotics, a Pure Yoga microfibre towel, a Pure dry bag, a travel-sized Eversoft Beauty shower foam and a su:m37 Secret Repair Set (toner, emulsion and cream).
