Yoga Beat At Orchard Road

Imagine one of most important road in Singapore was close for a huge yoga event. It was Pedestrian Night on Orchard Road on the 1 November 2014. The largest yoga event in Singapore was organised by athletic apparel company, lululemon athletica together with Orchard Road Business Association (Orba) and Singapore Tourism Board.

The mission of lululemon athletica is to build healthy communities. The event Yoga Beat will only be the start of many more fun and exciting activities leading up to the athletic apparel company opening of their first store in Asia.

Live longer and fun lives. That is what the company hope to achieve. Healthy lifestyle with yoga. You will be delighted to find a whole range of yoga apparels in the soon-to-be opening of  athletic store.

More than 900 yoga participants came for the event. The Orchard road was filled with people unlike the usual cars and buses. Imagine yourself lying at the centre of the road ( don't think you have many chances to do that ). After the yoga session, the fences were removed to allow the public to mingle with the participants in the largest yoga hip hop event in Singapore. Local musician DJ Koflow spins the hot numbers to the delights of the growing crowds. Local rapper Kevin Lester heightened the atmosphere with his rap.

On the stage, lululemon Singapore ambassadors, Lynn Yeo and Sumei Shum of space+light yoga, AntiGravity yoga instructor trainer Thicha and Seattle-based yoga teach, Patrick Beach of Beachyoga were present to lead the participants.

In my opinion, this event helps to introduce yoga to a larger crowd. Lululemon athletica mission statement is truly a great one,”build heathy communities”. 

Start “yoga-ing” and stay healthy.
