It is a very good feeling to be back to practicing yoga. Well, I have never been able to practice yoga regularly before because of a number of limitations – financial, time, and the distance and locations of good yoga studios. It is wonderful to have recently discovered not just one, but two new yoga studios in convenient locations for me. One is White Space in the Katipunan Area (http://www.whitespacewellness.com/) which opened just last month, and the other one is Urban Ashram Manila’s BGC branch (http://www.urbanashrammanila.com/) which is opening this month.
I have started my first class at White Space and am very pleased with it – the facilities, the people, and the feeling of being able to practice yoga again. The studio also offers pilates, t’ai chi, reiki, meditation, and modern dance, but I have yet to try those other things out. But I really do intend to practice here at least once a week, time and traffic permitting. Its location is halfway between my workplace and my home. Now that things are a bit more relaxed in the museum, perhaps I can get more me-time and practice yoga regularly at White Space.
I have not seen Urban Ashram Manila’s BGC studio yet, but I and my colleagues already got a 15-day pass to try out their classes. I think they also have an open house these coming weeks before they go full operation. It will also be a good alternative location for me to practice yoga, since it is just a few minutes away from where I work.
