I love, love, loooove being able to teach in this spot. I am beyond grateful.
I love, love, love this shirt I got for my kids yoga classes. It really speaks of what I want my classes to be like…fun! I wish it fit better though, because it is quite unflattering to the figure (my figure to be exact) because it’s kinda like a cross between a t-shirt and a hanging shirt that’s kinda wide on the girth. I usually roll up the sleeves and knot it at the back to make it fit my body type better. Not that it really matters with kids what you look like hehe I do love dressing up in these non-typical clothes you’d see me in on a regular basis. Then again, come to think of it, since I started yoga, the non-typical clothes have become my daily staple. Gone are the stilettos and now I’m in flip flops 90% of the time! Now I dress in “costume”, such as in tutus and ballet flats, tiaras and fairy wins!
Yes, kids yoga brings out the kid in me!
I had meant to write about the Global Mala project before the actual day of the event, but as always, life got in the way and so I was not able to do so. Boo. Nonetheless, I wanted to still share something about the amazing event that was called the Global Mala. This was the Manila leg of a big project happening around the world, creating a mala of communities sharing the yoga love. It was a great experience! I missed out last years event because I was in teacher training, and so I was glad I was not only able to come this year, but was also able to assist my mentor Dona Esteban as she led a Yin Yoga class. Together with fellow yin teachers and trainees of Yin Yoga Philippines, we were able to come together to serve over a hundred practitioners, many first timers to the practice. Such an awesome experience.
I am so glad I discovered this path. I remember before I feared even the concept of going out to buy plus size sport bras or yoga clothes because practicing seemed like the last thing I’d ever do! Talk about being silly Haha. I am grateful I went beyond that and just allowed myself to be who I am. I am thankful to yoga for that
