SINGAPORE, Asia — Hot on the heels of the highly revered FitnessFest by AIA, organisers TLG Festivals are bringing together a group of iconic yoga instructors and classes from around the world to gather in Singapore for Yogafest World Edition.
Taking place over the weekend of 12th & 13th January 2019 at the Urban Park of Singapore’s tallest building, the Tanjong Pagar Centre, the event will deliver 25 class sessions over 18 hours, bringing yogis together to discover the power of asana.
A Singapore first, the impressive lineup of international headliners will include yogi and movement practitioner Sean Phelps (USA), yoga guru, best known for her unique style ‘Flowave’ Fee Zard (Australia), adventurer and yogi Victor Chau (Hong Kong) and homegrown acro and ashtanga yogi, Yang Jiamin (Singapore), who together will seek to inspire a healthy community through movement, mindful consumption and positive bonds.
“We are excited to bring together such a diverse line-up of iconic yoga instructors from all over the world to Yogafest W.E., representing how yoga is a universal language across all borders,” explained Tricia Sokolovitch, Managing Director of TLG Festivals.
“Each instructor brings their own set of motivations and expertise to the festival, creating an unrivalled opportunity for both experienced yogis and newbies to discover different styles of yoga, be inspired, move mindfully and experience a weekend of well moments with friends and family,” she added.
Beyond yoga, the festival aims to embrace all aspects of holistic living, featuring a wellness roster infused with the three pillars MOVE, DISCOVER, UNITE — sessions will include Aerial Yoga, AcroYoga, Calisthenics Yoga and more. Elsewhere guests will also have access to a market in which they will be able to discover local wellness brands, healthy eats and a craft room featuring sustainable and upcycled craft making.
With consumers placing more value on health and wellness than on material objects these days, the definition of wellness has evolved, says Forbes. With millennials cataloguing their lives on social media, looking great, feeling good and enjoying experiences are the new luxuries that consumers want to enjoy and flaunt. According to the Harris Group, 72% of millennials would rather spend money on experiences than on material goods. No surprise, then that wellness festivals and events are on the rise both globally and regionally, from Iris in Hong Kong, Murfest in Malaysia, to Wonderfruit in Thailand.
Yogafest is being held at the Urban Park of Singapore’s tallest building, Tanjong Pagar Centre. The 150,000 sq ft landscaped Urban Park features a green lawn, rooftop gardens and a wide, open space sheltered by a glass canopy for recreational and lifestyle events.
