Bikram Yoga Alabang
I’ve always wanted to try yoga ever since I leaned of it from a magazine I picked up somewhere 3 years ago. It seemed easy enough (or so I thought) for something that could be exercise. When an invite arrived for When In Manila to try out Bikram Yoga Alabang, I jumped at the opportunity.
I, together with my friend Cheddar, finally summed up enough courage and effort to peel ourselves from our eat-sleep-internet routine.
It was a rainy afternoon when we stepped inside the Bikram Yoga Alabang studio. We were greeted by Ginger Diaz, BYA studio director and owner.
ABOUT BIKRAM YOGA Alabang
In a nutshell, she explained to us that Bikram yoga is a 90 minute program that involves a series of 26 poses and breathing exercises done in a heated room (40 °C). Certainly a test of balance and flexibility, she maintains that everyone has his/her own pace and that anyone can most definitely learn.
Offering a bevy of health benefits including weight loss, posture improvement, strengthened muscles, better flexibility, and even skin cleansing, Bikram Yoga Alabang has had all types of people come in to practice yoga. Their vast variety of clientele include triathletes, kids as young as 7, moms, and even dads. BYA welcomes everyone with a sense of adventure and willingness.
NOT JUST FOR YOUR BODY: Bikram Yoga Alabang
When asked about how she found yoga, Ginger tells us the story of how at 24 and working as a preschool teacher, she was like most people in their twenty somethings– confused and looking for purpose. This is exactly what she stumbled upon when she decided to try yoga.
Not only did she find an effective way to exercise, but she also saw a lot of changes within herself brought about by this new activity. She found a new sense of commitment, responsibility, and discipline in herself. “It’s not like the world changed, but I changed how I viewed the world and I was able to learn and accept more”, Ginger says.
From someone who didn’t even know that Bikram Yoga was done in a heated room, Ginger is now a yoga instructor and a yoga studio owner. She regales us of tales on how she herself struggled with the poses at first, but as is evident in everything that this young lady has achieved, nothing is impossible with hard work.
Her tip to anyone who wants to try? Give it a shot, you never know what it can do for you.
Avi, who invited us over, reminded us hours before to drink lots of water and come on an empty stomach. We came into the studio on a Wednesday, and arrived 30 minutes early for our 6pm class.
