Time to mark your calendars!

To escape the hustle and bustle of city life, you don’t necessarily need a full-blown vacation. On Sep 12, just head over to Tanjong beach at Sentosa for Soulscape, Singapore’s most iconic yoga and lifestyle event.

We know, the thought of being among hordes of washboard abs and gravity-defying yogis can leave us average beings feeling adequate. Thankfully, Soulscape has plenty to offer everyone and you don’t even have to be a yogi!

Combining a music festival, yoga and fitness classes as well as a marketplace, the festival will leave you spoilt for choice.

Namaste, yogis

Get bendy and even defy gravity with your partner

If you’ve been practicing yoga for awhile, we suggest trying out the exclusive workshops and classes to improve your skills. Intermediate practitioners can level up with the Inversions class with Saumik Bera that’s bound to help you nail that tripod headstand.

For something more challenging, grab a partner and sign up for the Acro Yoga class with Marc Bauchet where you can learn to support each other in various partner asanas.

Just zen me out

Zen out in this lovely breeze

Looking for a peace of mind? You can find it right here. Join the Sound Meditation session with Amber Sawyer and be guided into a state of quiet contemplation.

Or open your heart and mind with healing workshops that range from Yamuna Body Rolling which is said to help with blood circulation, to the Art of Freeing your Voice.

Game for good fun

There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a fitness junkie or a newbie

For those game to try anything in the name of fun, there are plenty of options for you.

You can consider a Surfset workshop where you can experience a full-body and core workout by standing on top of a custom-made unstable surf board. Music and dance lovers can groove freely to your heart’s content at the Shiva Devi Estatic Dance workshop.

Shopaholics alert

SoulMarket (2)

You might leave with too much yoga apparel, just sayin’

This is where we must remind you, bring sufficient cash!

The Soulmarket will be filled with delightful finds ranging from unique yoga and fitness apparel, gourmet food, handcrafted collectibles and more. I recall having bought one too many sports apparel at the last Soulscape, because really, who can resist all those pretty prints?

Sway to the beats

SoulVibes Night concert

A perfect way to chill the night away

If you haven’t already heard, Soulscape also incorporates the music festival SoulVibes — a night festival featuring world music preformances, which plays into their tribal theme of Dub reggae, ethnic infusions, urban folk and trip-hop beats.

Be sure to check out headliners such as DJ Jean Reiki and award-winning musician Govin Tan, especially if such music genres are new to you.

Soulful music, sunset yoga on the beach and great company, we think that’s the best way to spend your weekend!
