Revisiting Davao traveling
Revisiting Davao
(Aug 22-Oct 31, 2016) Davao has always been a favorite destination for me. Every time I visit, the energy is different, giving the place a fresh welcoming scene whether it be people, events or new places of interest. Of course, there are the main stays - yoga, durian and tuna. After 9 weeks, the one word defining Davao for me is abundance....more »»

A Roof Over my Head in Davao traveling
A Roof Over my Head in Davao
(Aug 22-Oct 31, 2016) Davao is one of the few destinations in the country offering dormitel lodging for less than P200/night - not too far off from what I pay in Cambodia or Thailand. If I don't get a hotel deal and have to pay cash for lodging, I know I won't hemorrhage money. This time around, Davao has been more than generous in giving me shelter. I enjoyed the luxury of hotel-hopping, thanks to the kind people who opened doors for me....more »»

Davao Yoga Scene
(Oct 31, 2016) Back in the day, Davao only had one yoga center - Holiday Gym and Spa. Now, there are more than a few - Yoga Davao, Metro Lifestyle and Plana Forma. They have their own yogic community which extends beyond the mat to food adventures and social gatherings...more »»

Pranayama yoga
(Oct 24, 2016) Pranayama is the yogic way of regulating the breath. It sounds so simple it's almost dismissive - we breathe day-in and day-out, so what's special about it? But since I realized its Superman-effect many years ago, I've taken special interest in it. I find it fascinating that a power as potent as this is readily accessible and free - but hardly tapped-on...more »»

Yoga Beyond the Mat yoga
Yoga Beyond the Mat
(Oct 21, 2016) How do you apply yoga to someone who cuts you off the street? How can yoga help you if you are constantly plagued by painful thoughts from the past that leave you agitated and angry? What do you do in a pose to help you boost your immune system and add vitality to your life? While yoga by itself already addresses those issues, I connect the dots and pull everything to a seamless singularity.....more »»

Grilled Tuna Overload in Davao food
Grilled Tuna Overload in Davao
(Oct 13, 2016) Gen San comes to mind when the word tuna is mentioned. They have a huge tuna fish wholesale market. However, grilled tuna frenzy happens in Davao all year round. It is here you find grilled tuna from street side hawkers to high-end fine dining, ranging from P80 to P500!....more »»

Duterte Mania in Davao politics
Duterte Mania in Davao
(Oct 12, 2016) With Davao's very own mayor ascending the presidency, Dabawenyos cannot get enough of their dear mayor. Even if Malacanang is now Digong's new office, his presence in Davao is still deeply felt. You see life-size cut-outs of him where people pose for a selfie. Car stickers wave his face and name like a flag. Billboards about him adorn the city.....more »»

Yoga Makaranda II yoga
Sirsasana, Sarvangasana - Yoga Makaranda II
(Oct 7, 2016) Of all asanas, according to the Yoga Makaranda, the Sirsasana and the Sarvangasana are the two most beneficial. They position the heart above the perception organs (eyes, ears, tongue and nose) and increase flood flow, puts the internal organs in the proper position and slows down respiration.....more »»

Tirumalai Krishnamacharya yoga
Tirumalai Krishnamacharya
(Oct 5, 2016) Yoga's explosive global growth spawned modern-day yoga rock-stars, iconic gurus, an avalanche of disciples and a multi-billion dollar industry. The one obscure name that made it possible remains enigmatic - Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (1888-1989). Who is he?....more »»

Ashtanga Yoga with James Fritz Freire at Holiday Gym and Spa yoga
Ashtanga Yoga with James Fritz Freire at Holiday Gym and Spa
(Oct 1, 2016) Even though I've moved on and developed a yoga that is more consistent with my genetics and life experience, I always default back to Ashtanga for restoration. Whenever I eat unhealthy foods or had been remiss in my healthy habits, I take refuge in Ashtanga to reboot my system. Here in Davao, Fritz delivers Ashtanga on a sweated mat...more »»
