EVENT: Yoga and Brunch Conversations with Urban Yogis
Yoga and Brunch at Faber Peak
CONNECTING BEYOND THE YOGA PRACTICE
MONTHLY YOGA CONVERSATIONS TO STRENGTHEN COMMUNITY
One of the greatest joys of practicing yoga is the access to a community of like-minded people who endeavor towards greater health, wellness, and quality interactions. However, too often, we go into a yoga class, do our practice, and once it’s over, we roll our mats and leave. In doing so, we leave behind the opportunity for new meaningful interactions, and the potential for major life shifts. We believe that it’s not just the practice on the mat that brings positive benefits to one’s life, but the relationships we build within the community that helps us grow. Our monthly yoga and brunch talks are important platforms that encourages each person bring their own experiences to the table.
In partnership with One Faber Group, the event will take place at Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro, perched atop the lush greenery of Mount Faber Park. It will begin with a one-hour yoga practice, led by Urban Yogis co-founder, Kathy Gabriel. Following the yoga class, participants will be divided into small groups of 8 to have discussions over an exclusive healthy brunch set at the alfresco dining area surrounded by majestic views of the rainforest hillside. Each group will receive a set of discussion prompts to guide you in your sharing circles.

NEW BEGINNINGS VS. NEW NORMAL
It has been a year since the world changed for almost all of us. While the struggle has been very much a real experience for most of us, we can now look back and reflect upon some of our own personal journeys in a way that is empowering. We can drive change or we can settle into the changes that are thrown at us. We can take action or we can surrender. Both are very much a part of surviving and thriving in a world where so much is out of our control. How do you define new beginnings versus new normal? During our brunch, you will be offered discussion prompts to weave some of these insights into your conversations to encourage a deeper and more meaningful dialogue.
The event will take place at Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro located at Faber Peak. At 100m above sea level, the lush greenery of one of the oldest parks in Singapore will truly allow you to immerse and stay connected to the earth.
