Yoga in the Sky at Mind-Body-Spirit Festival 2013

Last Sunday 12 May 2013, I attended the Mind-Body-Spirit Festival organised by Singapore Flyer in conjunction with Mother’s Day celebration. With the day-pass ticket, there are various classes to choose from and at different venues to provide unique experience for all.

Yoga, pilates, fitness marathon and  mass workout are some of the selection available. Eventually I decided to train my abs and headed for the yoga class held at Bayview Room at level 2.

The YogaDivas CORE workshop was presented by yoga instructor, Sarah Powell from YogaDivas. Yoga is not just about gentle stretching, during the one-hour session, we learned to discover our inner strength and also had fun with arm balances. If you think yoga is just for girls, don’t be misled by the YogaDivas name, there were a couple other guys attending the class with me.

Sarah started the class with relaxation breathing exercise before proceeding to stretching and balancing on our core muscles and arms. Most of the poses were manageable except for a few which were rather challenging. Sarah also demonstrated varied versions of the pose to achieve the desired result without hurting ourselves. After the one hour, I could really feel my abs again!

As I was recovering from my previous yoga class, I met up with the organisers who gladly informed me that they had specially arranged for a workout in the sky for me. Although I was feeling slightly tired but the idea of doing yoga in the sky excited me (click here to read my previous experience with doing yoga inside the capsule).

The special class of Hatha Yoga was presented by Master Ankan Kumar Sarkar from Sky Fitness. Hatha Yoga is the most ancient, complete and popular system of yoga for mental and physical health. It is a science of breathing, purification and synchronization on the physical and mental dimensions. During the two rotations of one hour, we learned the ancient techniques of esanas (postures) and pranayama – good health, peace prosperity, longevity and self-realization.


Doing yoga inside the capsule is an amazing experience. Imagine seeing the Marina Bay district 165 metres above the ground in an upside-down position. The beautiful scenery makes enduring the more challenging postures so much more enjoyable. It is an experience that is not offered everyday.

I would like to thank Singapore Flyer for the lovely invitation and I really hope that can make the Mind-Body-Spirit Festival a yearly event or have more classes of yoga, pilates or fitness workout in the sky so many others can enjoy the unique experience.

My life was in hectic mess since last week, rushing for one place to another, attending events and classes, trying to complete my school assignments while juggling two part-time jobs, I was having difficulty finding space for myself. Hence, I jumped the opportunity when Singapore Flyer invited us for Workout in the Sky last Wednesday – yoga is actually what I need to calm my spirit and find my inner peace.

Despite the massive crowd in the MRT and the early morning downpour, we managed to arrive before 9.30 am to board the capsule for this once in a lifetime experience. After all, it’s not everyday that we get to do yoga at 165-metre above the ground!
