Hot Bed Yoga

Experiencing bad traffic during the Edsa day would really cause too much stress. 

Thank God there's no traffic in Luneta area, the travel going here was not stressful.

Since yoga is a great form of stress reliever I tried one of the hottest yoga in town - the 'hot bed yoga' in Zenyu Eco Spa located at the 3rd level of Hotel H2O, Manila Ocean Park in Luneta. Zenyu is a japanese word which means 'healing'.

Every part of Hotel H20 is equipped with negative ions and they are good in improving blood circulation, detox and system cleanse.

Since I am very used to Vinyasa and Ashtanga, I became interested trying this hot kind of yoga.

Just like in Bikram, you will be staying a very hot room and will practice yoga exercise. 

While having a good time at Zenyu, Operations Manager Dr. Eric Tan educated us about the two kinds of ions- positive and negative.

There are positive effects of getting negative ions, like doing the hot bed yoga.

And the good benefits are:

Inside the hot bed room we were sweating a lot, it's a good way of flushing toxins from the skin.

In this heated room, you will be able to stretch more.

Working in a warmed room additionally lifts the heart rate, which makes the body work harder.

Working in heat helps the body and mind relax, it also .

Since it improves breathing it's a good exercise for people with Asthma like me.

It develops a better mental focus.

Again since it is equipped with negative ions, you would not be infected with bad bacterias.

During our visit we were also treated a full body massage, Fish Spa, Tai Chi products and a sumptuous dinner at Makan Makan.

Hot Bed Yoga is so Hot! Special thanks to Orange Magazine TV and Dr. Eric Tan for the great experience.

Celebrities brace for a ‘tougher’ YellowCab Challenge Philippines Subic-Bataan

TV host and active triathlete Drew Arellano will be competing in the first leg of the Challenge race this year, which will consist of a 1.9km swim, 90km bike, and 21.1km run.

GMA News Anchor Kara David, on the other hand, will be joining the Powerpops TriKings for run, while TGIS alumnus Onemig Bondoc will also participate in the run relay.

Former PBB housemate Paul Jake Castillo, TV commercial director and entrepreneur Sid Maderazo, and triathlon coach Miguel Antonio Lopez are also competing in the event that holds the largest prize purse in Asia.

The race held in Bataan last year was dubbed by TRIMAG Asia as the most prestigious triathlon event in the Asian region and by many as the “World’s Toughest Race” because of its challenging and hilly courses.

This year, the Yellow Cab Challenge team will make it even more exciting and tougher. After all, the Challenge Family franchise is renowned for its organized and safe races, and its choices of beautiful destinations, while giving participants the opportunity to compete at the highest levels.

The inaugural race in the country last year showcased over 729 athletes from 38 countries, including two crown princes of Bahrain.

On the other hand, the race’s broadcast coverage extends to over 82 countries worldwide, showcasing the Philippines as the most desired lifestyle and sports destination.

On June 14, the team will stage another race, this time in CamSur, where multi-awarded world champs and local celebrities are expected to join. This one is touted to be one of the fastest races in the world.

Aside from the main event, there will be an epic post-race awards party at the Lighthouse Resort in Subic, which will be open to all, and which will be attended by local celebrities and top athletes. This world-class season opener for long-distance racing in the Philippines—and all other festivities—will be held at the Camayan Beach Resort, Subic Bay, and at the rugged and beautiful province of Bataan.
