Yogathering 2 Oct 3-4, 2015

Yogathering 2

GPS waypoint: 10°24'06.5"N 123°55'57.4"E
Location: Genesis Valley, Mountain Resort, Consolacion, Cebu
Fee: P650.00
Dates: Oct 3-4, 2015 (overnight)
Inclusion: 3 meals, tent, yoga, meditation, workshops
Organizer: Jaya Indra and friends

A Follow-Up
Yogathering 2 shifts into high gear after the successful pioneering event last August that saw yogis and yoginis gather outside the mat into a chill space out of town for yoga, meditation, healthy eats, music and fun activities. This time, the event welcomed entire families - kids, pets and all.

Genesis Valley
The venue was a tad off the grid into the highlands of Consolacion. Getting there from Cebu City wasn't easy with familiar roads being closed-up for repairs. Big tents were already lined up upon our arrival although cottages were also available for an added fee. Genesis Valley itself is uncharacteristically big with manicured lawns and gardens, featuring a swimming pool, cottages, playground, covered spaces and lots of greenery to roam around.

New Friends
Different practitioners took turns giving everyone a workshop in juggling and capoiera while others conducted yoga, meditation, dance and fire poi. The overnight event was a great way to meet members of the yoga community who practised in different studios under different teachers. Family participation made a wholesome weekend break for kids and parents. By the time the wholesome event ended, everyone was already a friend or a familiar face.
