Hi everyone! Lemme share to you my recent adventure in my Yoga practice. I am not a Yogini-wanna-be and I am far beyond that! how I wish I am that flexible and much interested in Yoga as I am into Running and Zumba.
Every week, I try new and old things to refresh me from my daily routine at work. Sometimes working hard takes toll on my physical body that even sleep can’t take away!
I feel like everything is just going fast and I need to hold on to something to stay sane Part of that is my weekly visit to Spa among other things. I can’t really imagine my self without having a spa service or there must be something wrong when I don’t hit the Spa in a week. It’s either I am sick or unbelievably broke but I won’t let it happen hee hee!
So last week, my good friend Kaye (Who is she) asked me to go with her for a Yoga session somewhere in Malate. I am a bit hesitant since I am really tired from work and lusting for sleep but still I brought my working out clothes and braved the Yoga session.
How I wish I knew the place but I really don’t have much details about it… which deserves an entry the next time I attend
The Yoga studio is located somewhere in Malate, Manila. It was discovered by Kaye via net. The Yoga class that we had was basic… take note “Basic” with hand stand haha! well, I agree to that because when we tried the hand stand we practice through wall which I think is a brilliant idea for starters. I am glad that I did it but some pose was really challenging to my body and needed more focus from a reluctant student that I am. Kinda praning kasi that my neck might twist or something and lead me to death haha without proper execution.
It’s my first time use Yoga blocks and glad to know how to use it in Basic class. Yoga blocks can be use as a support in 5 Different ways: Bridge position, Sitting position, Standing positions, hand and head support.
These blocks gave me a relaxing position in the end of our class as a head support combined with soothing words from Yoga Teacher named Cory. The Yoga Teacher was awesome, it was my first time not to fell asleep and walk out in a Yoga Class. It was an interesting hour of Yoga that I have learned and sweat really good. He will really help you to achieve position and motivate you to reach that goal. My exhaustion and negativity was truly released by just attending this class! Altogether made a difference such as discovering new place in Manila, meeting new people and learning more about my self in terms of Yoga.
Moving on, I remember Cory mentioned that there’s a Yoga position that is so natural for me which I forgot! I’ll try to recall it next time I visit, as for my Yoga-mate Kaye, well… she’s so flexible! and much refreshed that I am since she really love Yoga classes. She is also an excellent pole dance with a swagger profession as a Lawyer! naman, Beauty and Brains plus flexibility pa!
Gosh, how I really wish that I have flexible body so I can extremely enjoy Yoga
This class made me happy since the last time I had session with my favorite Yoga called “AGY” Anti-Gravity Yoga. They have the same happy hormones effect on me both are thrilling, challenging and provides both instant gratification and lasting transformation.
I will try my best this year to have a healthier body not only by trying different exercises but truly to commit a healthier lifestyle combined with clean eating and try harder to hit the gym or an oval to run. It’s all about hard work and discipline (easier said than done huhu) I am looking forward to the day I finally reach my goal, but until then, I’m learning to love myself a little more each day by giving my self a break to activities like this.
I always believe that environment plays a big role in influencing us to be a better version of ourselves in everything we do and I am glad I am with Kaye three times a week and also with my Senior head who is also engaged to a healthier lifestyle. Oh! I need more push to discipline my self, I am not getting any younger and I wish to have a healthy body for my family.
Thank you Kaye for inviting me to a wonderful Yoga session. Cheers to healthier us!
