Chanting Along to Kirtan Yoga at Yoga+

During the 30-Day Yoga challenge at Yoga+, I got the chance to check out special feature yoga classes as well, one of them being Kirtan yoga.

It was an open feature class, so once again I invited good ol' Jericho to join me. I had no idea what I was in for, and thought it would something like Vinyasa yoga, but not as hardcore. I was totally mistaken. Kirtan yoga is more like the yoga of the mind than it is the body.

Mystic Brew Cafe Can't Cast Its Spell On You

I went home to Las Piñas for the weekend to spend time with Mr. Wiggles, the puppy Jericho and I had adopted. I usually go home on weekends now to spoil the little guy with treats, hugs, and lots of love! This particular weekend, we took a drive around BF Resort looking for a place to just hang out, and came across Mystic Brew Café and Curios.

Hey Yoga Girl!

This was just too funny not to share!

Ironically, this just keeps me more motivated to work on my practice some more the next time I'm mucking around the yoga studio.

The last thing I'd wanna do is keep your Vinyasa from flowin'.  You see what he did there?

Drum Tao: The Art of Drum Invades Resorts World

If you ever find yourself anywhere near Resorts World, seeing Drum Tao: The Art of Drum is an absolute must! It was so mind-blowing, I hope they come back so I can see them perform again!

Breakfast at Antonio's: More Than Just a Good Brunch

It was a rainy Saturday morning when Jericho and I made our way up to Tagaytay for a consult with my doctor-slash-nutritionist as well as a late brunch at Breakfast at Antonio's, thanks to a deal he got at Groupon Philippines.

Date Night at the Romantic Bistro Casanova

I was invited to an intimate dinner at Bistro Casanova, by the Marketing Head of its BGC branch, Mark de Jesus. Very well aware that he would be feeding me 'til the cows come home (or until I turn into one, whichever came first), I brought Jericho along with me for the gastronomic roller-coaster ride.

The Conveneince of Joey Pepperoni

When I moved into the new apartment at The Fort, I was too lazy to go anywhere else for a while (my place is a bit of a walk away from Market! Market! or S&R) and was pretty content just nesting and getting used to the new digs.

There are a couple of restaurants to choose from downstairs, like Malcolm's, Big Bad Wolf, and Ristras. But whenever I'd get hungry and needed to mooch off wi-fi at the same time (Globe was taking its sweet time setting up mine at the apartment), I'd make my way downstairs to Joey Pepperoni.

Pie & Coffee at Bag of Beans

I needed a change of scenery for at least a day, the city was driving me insane. You just have one of those days where you can't stand being in a place with so many people, and you just want to run for the hills and hide for a day.

So, instead of mentally shutting down, I headed up to Tagaytay with Jericho to relax, enjoy the drive, and clear our heads. Braving the heavy Saturday downpour, we visited a naturopath that had a wellness clinic near the Tagaytay flower market, had brunch at Antonio's, and then stopped by everyone's favorite Tagaytay pitstop, Bag of Beans. before buying our obligatory buko pie pasalubong for the friends and folks we left in the city.

Day 30: Yoga+ 30-Day Challenge

So it's the final day of the Yoga+ challenge and I found myself braving the rains in Tagaytay for a new feature. Although I did miss out on my last day at the studio, I've experienced enough to say that yoga has become a part of my life, and that they'll be seeing me back on the mat very soon!
