Being new in practice (If you're a yogi practicing at least 5 years) there are so much fundamentals for a yogi to learn and we tend to forget to be mindful of our asanas. Over the weekend, the amazing folks of Yoga Tribe brought in Laruga Yoga in Manila. It was a perfect opportunity to expand … Continue reading Laruga in Manila 2016: Your Downward Dog
I haven't blogged for months (or has it been a year?) and it's about due time for me to get my active lifestyle documented to keep me going and even more accountable. When I started this blog back in the early 2000's, it was measly just a blog to express how far I've run around … Continue reading PCOS and Me.

I haven't attended the hot room for quite a while but have been meaning to but due to the work load which lasts me up until wee hours of the night; attending the practice would cause a self-inflicted injury. I started doing Bikram Yoga back in 2005 when Tristan Choa first opened Bikram Yoga Manila … Continue reading Back to the Basics: Bikram Yoga Hot Start
If you're anything like me who couldn't transport herself to the nearby studio to practice and would rather save time for elsewhere or work load other than braving the traffic and stop lights; home practice isn't that bad. Of course, there's a huge difference being in the studio with fellow yogi's for an extra motivational … Continue reading Do You Yoga?
