EVENT: Yoga and Brunch at Mount Faber Peak (Vesak Day Public Holiday)
Yoga and Brunch at Faber Peak
Wednesday May 26, Vesak Day, Public Holiday
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.

CONSCIOUS LEISURE & SELF-CARE
There’s no better time to structure our brunch conversations around the idea of conscious leisure and self-care than this Vesak Day public holiday! We will encourage you to share your self-care rituals and to prompt your table discussions around the concept of conscious leisure. That is, how we can structure our time off in a way that is balanced and nurturing. Rather than allowing your day off from work to be a continuation of the endless to-dos of the week, how do you actually take time off and make your day an intentional reset. Let’s share our self-care methods on this mid-week public holiday!
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.
