New Year Yoga at Dragonfly Yoga Studio Jan 1, 2014

New Year Yoga at Dragonfly Yoga Studio

Location: Dragonfly Yoga Studio, 127 Canyon Road, Beverly Hills Subd., Lahug, Cebu City, Cebu (province), Philippines

Karma Yoga at Dragonfly
As a way to welcome 2014, Jeanne hosted karma yoga (free yoga) at Dragonfly Yoga Studio for Cebu's diehard yoga denizens. The session started off with the participants expressing their New Year resolutions - ranging from deepening their yoga practice to finding a boyfriend smile! Four teachers took turns conducting an intense class to benchmark the participants' unwavering resolve in manifesting their new year resolutions. Jeanne started the class with Surya Namaskar warm-ups, followed by yours truly doing abs-yoga (core development), Jason Robles conducting arm-balances and inversions, and Regina Bustamante with the cooling-down closing.

Yoga Community
After nearly 2 hours of challenging poses woven together into a flowing vinyasa - breath, banda and mudra for the taking, we were all famished and fatigued. What followed was food...glorious food! Breaking bread with generous smiles and warmth radiating from everyone took the stage as we drank homemade Bailey's Irish Creme, cake rolls, fruits, pastries and regional delicacies which were generously shared by everyone. The inter-connectedness of the community came into focus as spontaneous conversation permeated into the scene with new year well-wishes, hugs and kisses, social updates, planned get-togethers, etc...

Ending Thoughts
With yogic momentum riding strong on everyone's agenda, the benchmark is set for broadening this year's yogic landscape and peoplescape. Confidence is high that Cebu's yoga community remains vibrant, interactive and full of promise as individual yogis take ownership of their deepening practice.

Thank you Jeanne for making this happen. Your selfless effort goes a looong way in extending yoga beyond the mat.
