Living Kabbalah System Level 1

Since I attended Gahl Sasson's lectures during last year's Asia Yoga Conference in Hong Kong, I've been so curious about Kabbalah. I seem to resonate with its teachings. I've followed Kabbalists on twitter for everyday reminders on how to deal with life. Recently, Ria Trillo invited me to a talk conducted by Kabbalah Philippines which prompted me to enroll in the Living Kabbalah System Level 1.

"What is Kabbalah anyway?", you might ask.

The official Kabbalah website states this definition:

The word Kabbalah means many different things to many different people. In a nutshell, it is an ancient wisdom that reveals how the universe and life work. On a literal level, the word Kabbalah means “receiving.” It’s the study of how to receive fulfillment in our lives.


If you are interested to join the course, here's more information:

This 8 week course will be lead by Senior Kabbalah Instructor from London, Sarah Weston who will teach you how to integrate the wisdom of Kabbalah into your daily life. It guides you step-by-step to overcome personal challenges that stand in the way between you and the fulfillment you deserve.

Whether you've been studying for ten weeks, ten months, ten years, this course will take you beyond the basics and give you actionable ways to change yourself, thereby change the world around you.

Registration includes the Living Kabbalah system - this kit includes 24 CDs with instruction, a light-work book and other tools to use in your process of transformation. You may also choose to purchase the downloadable version

Class starts on June 6, 2012 and will be meeting every Wednesdays at the ADB Building, Ortigas, Pasig City.

For more details or to register, call Cathy 0917-5281294 or email philippines@kabbalah.com.

Yoga-filled Day!

Yesterday was intense! A few years back, I dedicated my life to teach, do and breathe yoga...then the universe started giving me exactly that. These days are filled with YOGA and I'm loving it :)

Before asana in class, we chant prayers from the Yoga Sutras

I started with Sandhi Ferreira's Jivamukti open level class at Beyond Yoga...she was fantastic!


BIO: Sandhi "Gayatri" Ferreira has been practicing Jivamukti Yoga for the past 16 years and acrobatics for the past 6 years. She is an advanced certified Jivamukti yoga teacher, AcroYoga teacher, AntiGravity Yoga teacher, a professional hula=hoop dancer and aerialist. Through these practices, she has discovered the perfect way to share her love of the healing strength of both yoga and acrobatics with playful intention and patience. She mentors at Jivamukti Yoga in NYC, teaching workshops and retreats internationally and performs in clubs & festivals around the world.

What I noticed is that Sandhi's really really good at adjusting her students. She really gets into your space to correct your poses in a very meticulous manner.


Here she is on me. Whoa...she really opened up my mid-spine!



 In the beginning of class, we talked about the full circle of life. Here, we come into full circle as my own student assists me into a handstand. My students are also my teachers, you see :)

Sandhi will be teaching in Beyond until next week so you better attend one of her classes/workshops to experience her awesome-ness! :)

After class, the Beyond Yoga team took Sandhi to Yabu for a vegetarian tonkatsu plate before heading back to the studio for a full afternoon of interviews and demos for Green Living TV. Here I am in the hammock talking to producer & writer, Chris Costello and host, Paolo Abrera about the sequence flow.

Check out Paolo Abrera on the AntiGravity hammock. I loved teaching him because he (almost) had no inhibitions and is a natural! :)
 It's a wrap! Catch the segment on Green Living 2 weeks from today Tuesday 93pm on ANC.

After the show, I still had to teach classes at Beyond! Phew! Whatta day, right? And today's another day! Gotta get on my mat so talk to you all soon...Namaste ;)

India Nostalgia

A short and sweet nostalgic video of our trip to Motherland India last February-March 2012. Makes me want to travel again! Video editing by surfer artist, Noelle Hilario.

Jivamukti, Ashtanga & More at Beyond Yoga

Sorry for my prolonged absence! I have moved to a new home a few weeks ago (a different blog article for this!) and I am still in the processing of 'rooting down' so in between packing and un-packing, blogging wasn't a priority. But I'm working on getting myself back on track ;)

So thrilled to have more visiting teachers at Beyond Yoga this month. Who wouldn't want to learn from these gorgeous ladies? See ya'll on the mats! :)
