After months of not working out because of katamaran and my stupid sprained ankle (I started physical therapy this morning, yay!), I finally tried out the newly opened Beyond on Libis! I made sure to take a class under my tita Carol. Tita Carol is the wife of tito Bitoy a.k.a. Michael V a.k.a. Jim’s new BFF-to-be. Haha! They were both our principal sponsors at our wedding because they’ve been very close to my family over the years. Tita Carol is one of the owners of the Libis branch of Beyond and I’m so glad I got the chance to try it out!

I’ve done yoga a few times before but I really want to integrate it in my daily routine to become more calm and focused. God knows I need better posture in my life too. Hahaha. Sit up straight – I know you’re slouched while reading this!! Anyway, I did Vinyasa 1:

Vinyasa Yoga 1 caters to people looking for an entryway into a yoga practice. It is accessible to people of all shapes, sizes, fitness background, and also those with fears or apprehensions about yoga. This practice incorporates basic poses with detailed alignment cues and instructions that give us a foundation towards taking our asana practice further, as well as restorative poses to calm the mind and body.

It was 75 minutes of deep breathing, focusing on poses and clearing my mind. Obviously I felt great afterwards. My mind was so clear and calm, and I felt so awake – very different from when I do vigorous exercise at the gym and I just feel like I want to die after. Hahaha! Let me give you a little tour of the space.

This is where we did Vinsaya 1

This is where we did Vinyasa 1 – take note that it’s right across Shopwise!

No need to bring a mat, just a towel. The mats are cleansed after each use. There are also blocks available for those who can’t quite do the full stretches. I didn’t need them (yabang LOL) but if you do, don’t be ashamed to use them. You will become more flexible after each class!

Here are some of the lockers where you can store your bags and slippers free of charge

Took home a bag of yummy kale chips. My first time to try it. Now I know why people are going crazy over kale.

I had a great time and I’m definitely signing up! Let me know if you also plan on going, maybe we can be classmates ;) A drop-in single class for yoga is just Php550, if you want to do zumba dancing it’s Php450, and for anti-gravity it’s Php650. There are a lot of packages you can check out to save up!

    I didn’t know Beyond Yoga looks this good! I think may branch sa Alabang, but I never got the chance to check it out. Sayang, paalis na ako eh.
