Teresa Herrera talked about her advocacy, The Global Mala Project which was founded 8 years ago by her teacher, global Yoga ambassador, Shiva Rea. One day each year, over 150 cities unite to form a mala around the earth through collective yoga events with intentions of peace and activism. 

Blooming mother-to-be, Teresa
That day this year is September 26, to be held locally in White Space, Pasong Tamo St., Makati City. In collaboration with several yoga studios in the metro, there is much to look forward to!

A Yin and Yang Yoga Retreat in Paradise


We're counting down the days until we hit the beach again. The next retreat will set place in a private island in Philippine's last frontier - Palawan!  


The Flower Island Resort in Taytay Palawan is 

"a private paradise with verdant foliage, white sand beaches, and azure waters teeming with marine life. Ideal for adventure seekers, nature lovers, and those who simply want a change from the hustle and bustle of city life, a trip to the island is the promise of a piece of paradise, an unforgettable experience you will treasure all your life."

Rianna Gatus and Monica Eleazar-Manzano, both seasoned yoga teachers from Manila, will be leading the Vinyasa and Yin Yoga sessions on the island.



Back-to-nature lodging will soothen your tired senses.....



 The retreat package includes full board meals, as well!


Take a leaisurely hike up to the tower...

And be rewarded with this majestic view!


Save July 17-19 for a weekend of natural wonders with us. More details and registration available here.

11 Ubud Bucketlist Adventures 2015


We're all still on a blissful Bali high as we just ended our Flow Yoga Retreat in Ubud, Bali. It's probably one of the healthiest places you can go in Asia! See what we've accomplished in our Ubud bucketlist adventures this year :)

1. Just look at how serene it is to stare into green spaces like our gorgeous poolside view of Agung Raka Resort.





2. Second on our list is brunch and a tour of the Bambu Indah resort, one of the places featured at Gypset Travel by Julia Chaplin.




The Bali Flow Tribe for this year 





3. Latin Dance with Dee was a fantastic way of getting our hormone high in Pica South American Kitchen. Do order their fantastic ceviche and sandwiches!






4. Orgasmic Raw Chocolates anyone? Get yours from Seeds of Life in Jalan Gootama. 


We chatted up raw vegan chef Sayuri who does regular raw food certification, this is one our personal bucketlists too one day!



5. Endless choices of healthy eats around town! Read separate blog post on this soon so stay tuned! :)


6. Walking Ubud Tour: Did you know that walking is healthier for your heart vs running?



The Ubud Palace



7. Outdoor Yoga! We love praising the sun so we take our yoga practice outdoors in most of our retreats. We just had to do a vinyasa - yin practice amidst the tropical lush and rice fields of Ubud. So lovely!




8. We joined a hands-on herbal class learning how to make Jamu tonic drink, all natural body scrub, body oil and body mask at Nadis Herbal. DIY queens rejoiced!









9. Traditional Balinese Massage for the soul at Bali Botanica Spa. Sensational!





10. To tap into our subconscious, we did a Mandala workshop with Angelo Santos at Taksu.





11. We ended our Ubud adventure with a trip to the chocolate factory tour at Big Tree Farms. OH YUM!
