Pop Up Yoga at MBS Boardwalk – Twilight Edition

What is Pop Up Yoga?

Pop Up Yoga is a leading community initiative in Singapore to allow likeminded individuals in the same community to meet, inspire and sustain each other in the path to leading a healthier and happier lifestyle. Great for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. All you need is your own mat, bottle of water, an open heart & mind 🙂

Each class is priced at $8, seen as a donation as way to sustain the community and give back to the teachers that offer their time. Certain exclusive “pop-ups” will be using these donations to drive social causes or support local charities.

We’ll be practicing yoga in all sorts of place. Think of it as a fun way to explore our city too! Teachers rotate so you can experience varying yoga styles /traditions.

This class will be taught by guest instructor Gaston Bacquet.

Best Exercises When You Have Your Period

Who likes to exercise during one’s period? There are cramps, feeling tired, lethargic and overall yucky. Even if you exercise regularly, there might be some positions or workouts that just make you feel a little lightheaded. But all of us know logically that if we skip a week of exercise, it will start to break the habit of exercising and may have a negative impact on our fitness goals.

But we understand. Exercising during menses isn’t the most comfortable thing to do (despite all the advertisements of sanitary pads showing ladies jumping around during their supposed periods). Nonetheless, not breaking your exercise routine is key and here are some exercises that you can switch to when Mother Nature visits.

Yoga

Skip the hot yoga and go for a gentle yoga session. Stretching your muscles (especially the back muscles) will help alleviate the cramps that happen during your flow. This will also help replace your weight or strength training as you will be using your body weight as a resistance or weight training.

 

Pilates

Similar to yoga, the stretches during pilates will help ease the cramps through the stretching of your muscles. You’ll be working your core so hard that you’ll forget about cramps and concentrate on building your abs!

Brisk Walking

Most experts don’t recommend overexerting yourself during your period but a brisk walk in the park is perfect for relaxation while also burning calories. Best part? You can do it with family members or your partner and bond with them while walking.

Basically, listen to your body and do the exercise during your period in the intensity that you’re able to do!

Pop Up Yoga (East Coast Park)

For the love of health and wellness, Pop Up Yoga is an approach to give people more opportunities to explore this beautiful practice. The first in Singapore, Pop Up Yoga is an initiative, a movement, to allow more in the same community to meet, inspire and sustain each other in the path to leading a healthier and happier lifestyle.

This is the first of many, many more. We’ll be practicing yoga in all sort of funky places on the island. Think parks, open public spaces, hidden rooftops, beaches, restaurants, yachts and many many more. It’s also a fun way to explore our city too! All you need to bring is your own mat, a bottle of water to stay hydrated and a smile!

Classes have a strong foundation in Hatha Yoga, however teachers rotate and may be from other yoga styles /traditions will also be teaching so you will get to experience a plethora of styles and classes at each event.

Each class is priced at $8, seen as a donation as way to sustain the community and give back to the teachers that offer their time. Certain exclusive “pop-ups” will be using these donations to drive social causes or support local charities

Class Type: Hatha Vinyasa

This class is taught by: Shanice Soh 

Shanice discovered yoga in 2011 and only realised that yoga has evolved into more than a physical form of exercise for her when she found herself turning to the mat again and again, just how it feels like returning home. She believes that yoga nurtures the physical body and mind and can be enriching and healing when practiced with an open mind.

Trained by Annie Carpenter, Shanice teaches Hatha and Vinyasa classes with emphasis on alignment. Expect disciplined yet soft classes that cultivate focus, steady awareness and leaving you well worked and alert. Shanice is also a certified kids yoga teacher and regularly gives back to the community through karma classes.
