Call it Covid-19 hangover or the effect of hustle culture, everyone’s some type of burned out these days. Wellness and self-care have never been more important – so do yourself a favour and take a break. If taking a holiday is out of the question, then dip your toes into some alternative wellness practices instead.
There’s no better place to start than at Altered States, a chic wellness studio located at Kampong Bugis. This May 1 and 15, it’s running Space Out Retreat, a half- or full-day immersive ‘trip’ into breathwork, meditation, and yoga practices meant to soothe your mind and revitalize your spirit.
Ease into it with Morning Meditation (9am-noon, $95). This is the more sedate program, kicking off with Kundalini yoga or dynamic meditation to wake your mind and body, before transitioning to a restorative qigong and gong meditation class.
If you’re down for something more intense, then Altered Afternoon (2pm-7pm, $170) is for you. Depending on whether you sign up for the May 1 or 15 retreat, you’ll get to experience the invigorating Breathwork and Ice Bath or Art of Silat class, and relaxing tension release exercises and yoga flows.
