An Endless Summer with Urban Ashram Manila

Last June, I was invited to check out Urban Ashram Manila’s newest branch in Makati with other bloggers. Needless to say, I was one excited beef – it was, after all, my first time to try out yoga!

My dates that day –’s mother daughter tandem Erika & Tita Jing!

I really love how their studio feels like a spa. It’s super relaxing indeed (which is by the way the semi main point of yoga: a great way to tone your muscles in a soothing and relaxing way)! But obviously, I’m a yoga noob and the folks over at would have a better way of explaining why yoga is. Hohoho!

Our instructors that day, Mr. Lasse & Mrs. Maricar Holopainen.

We were also there for the kick start of the renewed follow-through program Project Y – a yoga lifestyle targeted for the youth. Our instructors explained how they wanted to share the gift of yoga with everyone and since the first Project Y was such a success, they decided to continue this endless summer of healthy, happy, yoga living with us youngins!

Breathe in the good vibes and breathe out the bad! Yoga is a way of life – I now know why people who take yoga classes are so positive, cheerful, and…flexible! I rocked that balancing on the yoga cube bit like a not so noob though – I go Glenn Coco (my serious yoga face means business)!

Game time! We were asked to demonstrate some of the yoga poses we just learned. Here’s a glimpse of the latter half of my blurry Warrior III pose. And how cool are the prizes and giveaways?! I used my Urban Ashram backpack right away!
