10 years of the Global Mala Project.
People don’t know this exists in the Philippines. But we exist.

Full schedule after the jump…
I haven’t had much time to update my blog recently as I’ve been on the move. But this is something that I wanted to share for the longest time…
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing yoga guru, author, and speaker Mark Whitwell at the recent Asia Yoga Conference in Hong Kong. It was my first assignment for Yogi Times, and I learned so much during the process of researching and writing this piece.
While I haven’t focused on writing for media as much as I used to (I’ve become more involved in my own business and catering to clients the past couple of months), I do love the fact that I can easily jump back into the craft when I am inspired.
I also feel like every time I am assigned to write something, it’s pretty relevant to what I’m supposed to learn in that phase of my life. This article pushed me to learn more about yoga, working from the heart, and connecting with myself and others. It gets pretty deep, but I hope you guys like it xxx
Another year goes by, and the Global Mala Project grows bigger and bigger in Manila. People always ask me if there’s a yoga community in the Philippines, and this event is something I tell them to check out.
This year’s event is lined up for September 26, 2015 at Whitespace. It’s going to be a full day of amazing yoga sessions and talks. I was so thrilled to see this come together last year and am really looking forward to being home for this. ❤
Tickets go on sale Aug 26. (P650 pesos for early bird rate, P750 pesos for regular tickets). 100% of the proceeds will go to this year’s beneficiary, Children’s International.
When a girl grows in her career, she either takes her success to her head, or to her heart. Manuela Basilio does the latter. As a fashion model, she holds a towering presence. Her strong, Filipina features and long, lean figure may rather intimidate the observer. But once you hear her speak, you are easily disarmed.
Manuela in reality, is a bright and joyful person. Her kindness radiates beyond her words, and when it’s your turn to speak, she listens with intent and understanding. It’s no wonder why she’s a favorite to work with among the creatives in the fashion industry.
A few months ago, I met a vibrant young woman at an art gallery here in Singapore. What felt like a blind date (because I had only met her via an Instagram introduction) turned out to be one of the most memorable meet ups I’ve ever had.
Meet Pauline Hanuise, a remarkable holistic health coach, who not only teaches you how to care for your body, but also brings the mind and soul into the healing mix as well. Pauline also helps individuals recover from eating disorders that have plagued them for years; and she knows this well because she’s been there before and recovered successfully. This experience inspired her to help other individuals breakthrough as well.
When I decided to start interviewing people for my blog, Pauline was the first person I thought of because I really believe in her and her message. I often check out her blog for her insights, or her posts on Mind Body Green for quick recipe tips. But above all, I think of her for the courage and dedication it takes to turn your life around for the better.
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Pauline.
