Fun Day of Fitness for 700 women at Shape Yoga and Shape Active

Singapore, 18 October 2015 – Two women’s fitness events, Shape Yoga and Shape Active, concluded successfully today at Aperia Mall.

Shape Yoga and Shape Active were organised by Shape Singapore, a women’s health and wellness magazine licensed under Meredith and published by SPH Magazines Pte Ltd.

Originally planned to be held at Marina Bay, both events were moved indoors to safeguard the health of participants in light of the ongoing haze. 

Introduced in 2011, Shape Yoga is Singapore’s first all-women mass yoga workout. The seventh edition saw a large turnout of 580 participants. The workout was split into two 90-minute sessions in the morning.


Shape Active is the latest addition to Shape’s calendar of events. The inaugural edition, held in the afternoon, comprised a 60-minute circuit training workout that included elements of zumba and kickboxing, followed by 30 minutes of pilates. Close to 250 women joined in the fun.

After the workouts, participants enjoyed fringe activities in the air-conditioned comfort of the mall. Everyone walked away with goodie bags worth more than $117. Attractive lucky draw prizes, including a Simmons Mattress worth over $4000, plus $1,000 worth of vouchers from Roxy and MBT, were also up for grabs.

“It’s been a fun-filled day of action. Getting fit is easier when you enjoy what you’re doing. Also, trying new activities keeps things fresh and exciting. Events like Shape Yoga and Shape Active let women discover their preferred rhythm and exercise intensity. They are also great opportunities to bond with friends and meet like-minded peers, ” said Li Yuling, editor, Shape, SPH Magazines.

“We are pleased that everyone got a good workout despite the haze. For the health of our participants and their enjoyment, we decided to move the events indoors instead of cancelling. Our latest event, Shape Active, caters for the modern female seeking new, alternative workouts. By offering more options beyond running, we hope that we’ve inspired more women to get off the couch and work up a sweat. With the support of our partners and sponsors, Shape will continue to bring exciting events to our loyal participants,” said Diana Lee, General Manager, Fashion & Beauty, SPH Magazines.
