While it is important to know things and know them well, more often than not, it is also a combination of who you know that can help make your dreams into a reality. And networking is a great way to expand your circle of friends and business associates.
But who says that networking has to be dull and a formal event? Here are three fun ways that also make for a great workout or chill out session.
Knock it Back with an Om
We have all heard of yoga classes, but how about a wine and yoga class? On a scenic rooftop near Singapore’s Central Business District (CBD) is where you will find Wine Yoga & Citylights.
It is one of Singapore’s only yoga class that kicks it up a notch with the red elixir from the gods - wine. Expect to find your heart center and clock in a good workout while socializing with fellow yogis over glasses of wine after an hour of invigorating yoga.
It would be good to note that only 2 glasses of wine are included in the fee, with classes conducted in the CBD a bar to continue the lively conversation is never too far away. If you are not really into wine, the good people who host Wine Yoga & Citylights also have other variations paired with yoga, like beer and coffee.
