Sweat it out to stunning cityscape views when you sign up for Virgin Active’s “SkyPark Yoga.” By SAMANTHA FRANCIS.
Imagine this: You roll out your yoga mat on the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) SkyPark to the golden glow of sunrise and the crisp morning air, before taking in the surrounding cityscape or the lush nature at Gardens by the Bay. Such is bliss if the idea of outdoor yoga piques your fancy.
Offering a change of scenery from studios and home-based Zoom sessions, Virgin Active will be launching a new yoga experience starting from July 20 called “SkyPark Yoga”. Set on the 57th floor of the iconic Marina Bay Sands, the sessions allow participants to start or end their workday with dynamic workouts of differing intensities. Scheduled at either sunrise or sunset, 16 classes a week will be led by the international health club chain’s yoga instructors.
Each 45-minute class is designed to be fully immersive—participants are equipped with a set of professional wireless headphones that allow them to receive clear instructions from the yoga teacher no matter which posture they’re in. Early risers can opt for sunrise yoga sessions, which start at 6:45 am and 8:00 am daily except on Wednesdays, while night owls can go for sunset sessions at 6:30 pm and 7:45 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Classes are available for those age 16 and above, and they’re available for booking via the Skypark Yoga site or directly on Virgin Active’s website. While Virgin Active members can book and purchase classes via Virgin Active Singapore’s member portal, mylocker, non-members need to register for a “Pay-as-you-go” account to book and purchase classes.
As a treat, all participants are entitled to a 15 percent discount at MBS’ signature patisserie Origin+Bloom, which serves the signature Salted Chocolate Orange Cake and the Opera Cake. Simply show your yoga session confirmation email at the counter to enjoy the perk.
The yoga sessions start at S$30 each for the public, S$20 for Sands Rewards LifeStyle members, and S$15 for existing Virgin Active members. Sign-ups for a free Sands Rewards LifeStyle membership can be made here.
