Yoga Adjustment and Alignment yoga
Yoga Adjustment and Alignment
(Nov 11, 2015) It is standard practice for a yoga teacher to align the student for proper body geometry or to adjust the student to sink deeper into the pose. Does it follow then that a student who can reach his toes is doing better yoga than the one who can't? If a perfect yoga pose is going to your safety edge and taking refuge in the breath, then why is it necessary to adjust the student to sink deeper into the pose?....more »»

Pilipino Time Lucid Thoughts
Pilipino Time
(Oct 30, 2015) I had a conversation with an educated upwardly mobile Filipina executive who heads a department for a multinational company. On the subject of being 'on time', she said a few things that underscored for me, just how deeply ingrained Pilipino time is, in our culture....more »»

The Benevolent Cebu City lucid
The Benevolent Cebu City
(Oct 28, 2015) I've always maintained that a place is like a person - it has its own personality and its own unique way of interacting with you. Together, you develop dynamics where synergy can happen offering an experience similar to what best friends share in common. Cebu seems to be such a place for me....more »»

The Duterte Phenomenon lucid
The Duterte Phenomenon
(Oct 21, 2015) When Secretary of Justice, Leila de Lima, went live with her ranting on the lawlessness of Davao former-mayor, Rodrigo Duterte, the public was quick to unleash its fury on her...despite her adherence to law and order, and more surprisingly, despite Duterte's openly public stance on arbitrary execution of known criminals. There is a huge public clamor for Duterte to run for president despite his clear refusal to assume such public office. I call this the Duterte Phenomenon. What's with it?....more »»

Eat, Sleep and Dive at Liquid Dumaguete Dive Resort
(Oct 11-19, 2015) Given all the yoga immersion I've been doing in Cebu, it was a great reprieve to head back to Dumaguete and do some dive action at Liquid Dumaguete in Dauin. This time however, I came with another yogini, scuba diver, sky diver - Metz. The coastline of Dauin and Apo Island would be our water playground to discover....more »»

Homemade Peanut Butter using Anchor Butter and Honey
(Oct 9, 2015) When I learned that the oil floating on top of store-bought peanut butter is NOT peanut oil, but instead, cheap cooking oil, peanut butter suddenly lost its charm. But since I discovered how easy it is to make one, using ingredients of my choice, the romance with peanut butter resumes....more »»

The Laundromat and the Missing Socks
(Sep 11, 2015) Sometime in 2008 while I was still staying in Quezon City, I took my laundry to the laundromat. Upon pick-up, I noticed that my new pair of Columbia socks given to me by a friend was missing - it was my best sock. I went berserk! What followed were lessons learned that I take to this day....more »»

Re-purposing a Broken Umbrella sliceoflife
Re-purposing a Broken Umbrella
(Aug 27, 2015) A broken umbrella is usually thrown away. Same thing for everything that might just be too old but still functional. Despite finite resources, we evolve into a throw-away society - yet we stand firm against mining companies who ravage the earth. By disposing something broken, old, unfashionable, etc., instead of 're-using, reducing and recycling', we create increased demand for the building blocks of these gadgets that can only be extracted through mining. I use this umbrella as a metaphor to 're-purpose' for creative utility...more »»

Handstand Clinic at Surya Nanda Yoga Studio
(Aug 23, 2015) I got a message from the studio asking me if I can substitute for Mechele and Steve's Sunday handstand clinic as they can't make it. Hmmmm. Handstand has long eluded me despite my marginal gains. This offers me the opportunity to research and develop a sequence that may unlock some hidden secret...and of course, share to the class...more »»

Stopping Time lucid
Stopping Time
(Aug. 5, 2015) While backbacking Southeast Asia for 9 months with no reprieve, all I wanted was for time to stop so I could take a pause, catch up on things and regain perspective. I thought that was wishful thinking until I came upon Cebu. I should have stopped. But I simply couldn't. I still kept moving. My body took matters under its own hands. I got sick. Helpless, I couldn't do anything but watch time slowly pass me by.....more »»
