 07 Jan 2022

With all the festivities and celebrations of 2021 over, it's time to welcome 2022. With the recent emphasis on mindfulness and wellness, your resolutions this year might focus on more ways to live not only your best life but also a healthier one. Read on for the tastiest places to eat well or the best spots for yoga classes in Singapore.

 

Ready. Set. Sweat! 

Ask most locals what the most popular pastime to do in Singapore is, and they’ll likely refer you to the nearest mall or a hawker centre for some serious shopping and eating. However, it’s not all retail and roti. In fact, Singapore is absolutely brimming with various sport activities to get your adrenaline pumping.

 

Banyan Tree Fitness Club

 

Indoor action

From baseball and softball to climbing and martial arts, expect to find a range of fun and frenetic actives to take part in across Singapore. One highlight to check out is the Singapore Sports Hub. This unique facility is a fully integrated sports, entertainment and lifestyle hub that offers numerous activities, events, and tournaments for the entire family. A visit is a good start to building a healthy habit.

 

Banyan Tree Fitness Club

Located at Marina Bay Sands, Banyan Tree Fitness Club is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, such as treadmills, bikes, and elliptical cross-trainers. With resistance training gaining popularity in recent years, take advantage of the Kinesis Technogym Pulley Wall and the free weights system. While you’re working up a sweat, treat yourself to spectacular views of the city. If you need motivation to keep up your healthy lifestyle for 2022, look no further.

 

Gardens by the Bay

 

Outstanding outdoors

With its iconic skyline and futuristic sprawl, Singapore has fast become a popular urban playground. Thanks to the numerous parks, trails, and beautiful green spaces, the city is a paradise for hikers, joggers, and runners alike. Here are a few easily accessible routes and treks for you to explore and discover why Singapore is affectionately known as the Garden City.

 

Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade

Pace around this 3.5km scenic stretch and go for a personal best while taking in the views of the towering skyscrapers and quaint colonial structures. Lookout for numerous iconic landmarks along the way, including the Helix Bridge, the Merlion, the Singapore Flyer, and the world’s only floating Apple store.

 

Gardens by the Bay

For a quieter, calmer run set the alarm back an hour or two and go for an early session through the Gardens by the Bay. Approximately 8-10km in length, the circuit is a picturesque path of sculpted greenery, installations, and the incredible Supertree Grove to compliment your healthy lifestyle goals. If you want to create your own Gardens by the Bay route, you can do so with these handy maps.

 

Hort Park

 

Walks and Hikes

Walking and hiking enthusiasts are spoilt with plenty of Instagram-friendly trails to snap while working off those post New Year’s Eve calories. For a short trail, head to Mount Faber Park. One of Singapore’s oldest parks, the location is home to expansive views of the southern islands and the natural heritage of Faber Point.

Fort Canning Park offers a moderate challenge a little closer to Marina Bay Sands, where you can enjoy 2km of gardens, shrines, mural walls, and heritage trees. If you’re looking to head out with the whole family, a hike around Hort Park is what you need. Kids will love exploring the colourful Pitter Patter Potter Garden and playground where they can learn more about plants and seeds through experiential learning.

 

Sungei Buloh

 

The Southern Ridges Trail is perfect for a brisk stroll with its paved paths and captivating vistas of Singapore. For something closer to nature, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve is home to wildlife of all kinds; try your hand at birdwatching for migratory birds and resident birds at the mudflats of the reserve.

SkyPark Yoga

 

Strike a pose

With work from home being the new normal, it’s important to find ways to balance work and life. One way to maintain physical and mental health is to take up yoga and mediation. Believed to have originated in ancient India, the word 'yoga' comes from the Sanskrit word Yuj, meaning joining or uniting the individual to the universal consciousness. Combining these practices is a great way to realign your body's natural rhythms and feel a sense of peace. Whether you're a yoga beginner or a master yogi, you can find yoga studios and mediation classes across Singapore, including SkyPark Yoga by Virgin Active at Marina Bay Sands.

Located 56 stories up amongst the clouds, this epic location overlooking the Gardens by the Bay adds to the serene calm as you feel yourself flow from one pose to another. There are six 45-minute sunrise and sunset yoga classes held every week. Each one gently guides you on a journey of karmic bliss.

 

Banyan Tree Spa

 

Let there be Zen

A day at the spa is more than just indulgent pampering. It’s an opportunity to reset and destress, and make time for yourself as you embark on a healthier lifestyle in 2022. As one of the pioneering spas in Asia, the award-winning Banyan Tree Spa is acclaimed for its holistic focus on spiritual, mental, and physical harmony. Each treatment is informed by time-honored traditions, resulting in a tranquil experience of holistic therapies, full-body massages, calming baths, and facials that are a sanctuary for the senses.

 

Acai Bowl

 

Food as fuel

It’s said that you get out of life what you put in, and the same goes with your diet. As a significant contributor to your health, eating well goes a long way to boosting your mind and body’s energy. Healthy eating doesn’t have to mean bland, flavourless food. Today’s chefs and cooks use ingredients and innovative techniques to create dishes and beverages that are as delicious as they are nutritious. These restaurants and cafes serving healthy plates at Marina Bay Sands will surely satisfy your hunger for good, healthy food.

 

Cedele

Driven by the creed of "Eat Well, Be Well," Cedele serves wholesome, thoughtful food made with love and positive intentions.
