What happens when you combine yoga, swim, dance, and the bright and happy colors of summer? Then you get #YogaPoolParty by LiFE Yoga Center, Manila’s first indoor-outdooor movement party that combines live music and yoga in one immersive experience. Held in February, the Palace Pool Club in BGC was just the perfect venue for it.
Geared up in a Yogini mat and Sweaty Band! These are sold in LiFE Yoga, as well as other accessories and items for wellness.
Move to the groove
Dressed in moveable yoga gear and swimmies, attendees sweated it out to a flow focused on building core and arm strength, through balances and inversions versatile for practitioners of any level. DJ Emel Rowe set the pace with music that kept spirits up and minds focused.
Hatha yoga teacher Moshe Reyes hosted the event. Instructor Mandy Del Rosario led the poolside Vinyasa session. After a cool down, NIA (Neuromuscular Integrative Action) yoga instructor Bea Tabuñar led the cardio-dance workout. Sports gear brand Yoga Rat and plant-based French skincare brand Nuxe gave away exciting prizes. Also up for grabs at the event were limited-time discounts on LiFE Yoga packages.
No pool party would be truly complete without the prerequisite summer-barbecue refreshments. Guests enjoyed the complimentary fruits and ice-pops, and refreshing lemon-infused water. For snacks, Café Naya at The Palace curated a healthy coastal menu.
You can watch the short video recap of the Yoga Pool Party below. There is another one coming up in May, just perfect for the summer. So if you want to join in on the fun, keep posted by following @life.yoga on Instagram or LIFEyogaBGC on Facebook.
So if you think this setup is amazing, perhaps you’d want to see the actual LiFE Yoga studio! Check out their lovely interiors here. I was invited to be one of their ambassadors, and as soon as I stepped in the place, I knew it was going to be my happy place. Finally, I got to rediscover yoga and actually like it, a dozen years after I first tried it. I couldn’t be more grateful.
