Connect with nature in a lush haven within the city
With XIU Nature Connections, try out ‘forest bathing’ and immerse yourself in the enchantments of the night sky. Available at Serene Garden located in Gardens by the Bay and at the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
Also known as 'shinrin yoku', these therapeutic forest bathing experiences consist of slow riveting walks through nature with guided sensory activities. The practice has been shown to improve emotional, mental, and physiological states.
An evening session of this might just be your cup of tea if you’re looking for the ultimate immersion in nature. The moonlight shining through the canopy makes everything just seem more enchanting.
Programme timing: Please refer to schedule within the website. Private sessions are also available.
Tune in with yourself through sound healing
Ever tried meditating into the night on the sounds of crystal bowls, gongs, and wind chimes?
Located in the heart of the Central Business District of Singapore, SPACE 2B is a cosy studio offering more than 30 weekly sound healing, meditation and somatic sessions day and night, led by highly trained instructors.
As opposed to following along an instructor's narration, sound healing is the practice of using sound vibrations from instruments to help the body reach a state of deep relaxation and ;stillness. Pick an evening session to help you let go of the day’s worries, and slip gently into a good night’s sleep.
