Yoga + at the Fort

Standard

There’s a new and exciting yoga studio right at the heart of the Fort. Yoga+. Yoga + was founded by 7 friends with passion for YOGA aiming to provide yoga as a fitness for everyone.

The studio is located at the 11th floor of the Legend Towers. The facilities are amazing boasting that you only need to come in your yoga attire and water bottle. They provide you with manduka yoga mats, towels and alkaline water.

Here are some of the pictures from their website YOGA+

Last week,  I left work at 3pm to visit the studio. Unfortunately, all pay parking surrounding the building (Legend Towers) were full.  I wasn’t able to attend.  I wonder if they have a parking space at the basement of the building? Well,  I am going to try again my luck next time.

Exercising and not losing weight

Standard

If you’re one of those regularly exercising: running, walking, boxing, spinning, biking, etc on a daily basis yet not losing weight- welcome to the CLUB. In the next 30 days, I will try to experiment if it’s true that over exercising leads to plateau reaction of the body resulting to NO WEIGHT loss. For the next 30 days, I will try to only do 4 times per week of either BIKRAM or Boxing. More to come…

50 days til Christmas Party Challenge

Standard

Finally, I have buddies from work who will do a 50 days til the Xmas Party challenge with me. Donna and Gina agreed to take the challenge (not necessarily the same kind or length) with details below:

1. Donna and myself – no chocolates for the next 30 days (what did I get myself into!)

2. Gina – no rice in the next 30 days

3. Myself- 1 cup of coffee only per day in the next 30 days

SO the challenge starts tomorrow – so we will see how it goes…. I am still contemplating if I should sign up for an unlimited 1 month BIKRAM YOGA due to 2 things:

1. I don’t know if I can do it daily….

2. I don’t know if I will miss boxing or martial arts…

I am scheduled to do Bikram at 930am tomorrow. I’d probably sign up but need to commit to do this daily. If only I’m a commitment type of person… NYAK. Well, I’ll take it one step at a time and will make sure to not make any excuses as much as possible so wish me luck!

7.Bliss Yoga – A sophisticated and serene studio has just arrived in the heart of Makati. Located in the Penthouse (28th Floor) of the Trident Tower, Bliss Yoga offers classes to help strengthen your body, soften your heart, and clarify your mind.

(My personal favorite!) I enrolled last week for their unlimited monthly. I think if you are someone without any YOGA BACKGROUND, this is the place to be. As the teachers are open in assisting new faces, giving modified poses and the place is just like a second home. The rooms don’t look like a dance studio, it’s like a large serene room. The students too are just full of spirit, eager to get committed and offer their session to their own causes. You only need to bring yourself since they offer towels, hand towels, yoga mat and water. They even have a cafe lounge that offers vegan and fresh fruit shakes, HEALTHY!
