Project Y: Endless Summer (Soft Launch) + GIVEAWAY [CLOSED]

People deal with stress and escape from it differently. Some go on retail therapy such as shopping or cozy themselves in La-Z-Boy’s watching movies. Others travel by going to the country side and appreciate nature’s wonders. How about trying out yoga? Not only does it de-stress but it’s also beneficiary to our health! Urban Ashram Manila (UAM), the premiere Yoga studio in the Philippines, invited me and other bloggers to experience yoga at the newly opened branch of UAM in Makati. They hosted a soft launch party, in which they told us about UAM’s renewed program targeted for young adults.

When the class started suddenly all my worries disappeared out of thin air and all I could think of was peace. It was led by Mr. Lasse Holapainen. The thing here with yoga is that even if you’re at peace you still remain focused. All the while I thought I could handle yoga since I figured flexibility would be one of the factors needed in surviving an exercise like this. It’s more to that actually, such as balance, body strength and proper breathing in performing the poses. The game gets trickier when my classmates and I used the blocks! That class also tested how your body and mind coordinates with each other. I tagged along with my ice skating teammate and co-blogger Riana and she enjoyed the class too. We found it very helpful for our sport.

There was a small program where we shared our thoughts on the class. Because I participated in one of the small games where we were asked to perform some yoga poses, I won a 7 day-unlimited pass! Yay!
