Just a few meters away from the Launching Field Zone, fiesta visitors at the ‘Picnic Area’ would not only have the privilege of enjoying the sight of beautiful hot air balloons float up into the blue skies, but, this year, they will also be able to participate in a Yoga and Zumba session will kick-off at 7.30am  on Saturday, 12th March, and Sunday, 13th March 2016 and will continue for an hour to encourage healthy living and lifestyles.

Yoga and Zumba helps to reduce stress, increase strength and endurance, improve flexibility and increase your blood flow apart from aiding in weight loss. Both forms of exercise and relaxation are known to also help improve sleep patterns and posture.

The Yoga session will be conducted on Saturday, 12th March, by founder and owner of the YogaOneThatIWant Studio and well-known Jazz singer/ songwriter, Atilia Haron. The session will be a perfect introduction to yoga, where you will be able to learn basic sun salutations, sitting and standing poses, yoga stretches as well as arm balances and inversion poses. Visitors can bring their own mats or have a choice of renting from Under Armor yoga mats.
