The full story of why I yoga

I’m taking the spotlight off my usual subjects — the business elite — and sending some attention toward me.

This is not for vanity, or because I crave for attention and applause (cringing!). At the core, storytellers, like myself, prefer to highlight the stories that we tell. We stay behind the cameras and our names are in small prints.

Over the decades of doing journalism, however, I do understand the need to tell our own backstories.

Now I’m sharing mine.

When I’m not writing or managing newsrooms, I am on a yoga mat. I’m sharing here my my parallel journeys as a journalist and as someone who processed my human frailties…while I practice yoga.

Listen to my story:

I hope that inspires you as well to pursue your own self-care journey.

See you on the mat!

Kids really just do what adults do, not what adults simply say kids should do. Just got reminded of it when @nadineandrearimando147 , my 10-year-old niece, mirrored me while we were doing handstand drills after yoga class. She did the L-shape pose with her hands on the floor when she saw teacher @jo_endaya demonstrate it in class. But when she was next to me and I was on my forearms during the drill, she went down on her forearms, too. . Actions, indeed, are louder than words. . . . . . . . . . #handstand #handstandpractice #yogapractice #kickuphandstand #strongcore #corestrength #corestrengthening #corestrengthtraining #corestrong #fitafter40 #kidsyoga #upsidedown #inversion #yogainversion #yogabody #yogakids #hipopener #strongarms #strongissexy

Twenty million calories, sugar fiesta, intense sleep debt, and my bloody red time-of-the-month equals bloating like no other. ⠀ ⠀ I need to slow down. Or perhaps turn the aircon 24/7. Or sleep, fart, or just stay still. ⠀ ⠀ But, first: A stretch. A big, yummy, twist, bend and turn. ⠀ ⠀ Aaaaaaaah. Awesomeness. ⠀ ⠀ Let’s go.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #vinyasaflow #yogaflow # twistandturn #catcowpose #yogapractice #outdooryoga #natureyoga #yogabody #spinetwist #warriorpose #yogawarrior #trianglepose #yogaposes #yogafordigestion #savasana #happybabypose #boatpose #rollovers #reversewarrior #myyogapractice #fitafter40 #strongandflexible #benddontbreak #yogaflexibility #inflexibleyogis #yogafit #fitandstrong #strongissexy #namaste
