The yoga class will be led by Aliana Hassan Nur (Aly).

You can find her in every corner of Singapore teaching in various studios; Freedom Yoga, Still Yoga, Outtahatha and All About Yoga.
Her classes are energetic, engaging, fun and light-hearted. She consciously put out her intentions for the class through her voice and energy.
She loves using other senses to help elevate the practice. Using her own unique blends of essential oil spray and melodious tunes that is carefully curated for each different class. Her classes are calming but also garners that power from within, being mindful of the breath through the movement and deep stretches allowing you to feel energised, empowered, calmed and renewed.
We kick off at 10am with an hour-long outdoor yoga class by GuavaPass, our favourite fitness community. Then you can head to a riverside table at Beast & Butterflies in M Social for some Nitrogen cold brew coffees and hearty fare from their brand new set brunch menu. Take your pick of delicious starters, then dig into mains like the lobster ramen and truffle oil scrambled eggs with chorizo. Little ones are also catered to with fun kid-friendly eats. Once you’ve had your fill of tasty fusion dishes and maybe a cheeky pint or two of M Brew (Millennium’s own premium ale), make your way to the market to mingle with the good folks selling a smorgasbord of carefully curated eco-friendly products. We can’t wait to see you there!

Chufala specialises in products made with chufa including chufa oil, chufa powder, and horchata made with chufa.
