Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!
Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.
More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!
Yoga Classes: Stress Management, Back Pains, Scoliosis, Improved Sex Life?
Friday nights used to be "gimik" nights for a bottle of beer or two at nearby bars in Makati, Ortigas and even as far as SM Mall of Asia for Tutubi and his officemates but lately those nights became history as they switched from toxic ways to the detoxification rituals like yoga classes on Friday nights.
Free yoga classes were offered by Tutubi's company to employees every Friday night as a way to de-stress the already stressed-out employees after a week of pressure-filled work.

On the first day of free yoga classes, many joined out of curiosity, but not Tutubi due to prior commitment, some came with yoga mats, many with 6x2 feet tarpaulins in lieu of the yoga mats that normally cost P300 each.
After a recent company trip to a nice farm in Lipa City where another yoga class was offered as part of the detoxification ritual ang healthy lifestyle promotion, Tutubi got hooked due to improvements of his chronic back pain that's been hounding him caused mainly by his sedentary work and lifestyle (lack of travel is more like it).
Months after the free yoga classes were offered, only a handful of regulars attend the sessions, the curious ones now gone, with many varied reasons: Tutubi due sto his back pains, his boss to manage his stress and relax, another to aid in scoliosis "treatment," while another curious case for improved sex life due to an article posted on the Internet claiming yoga improves sex life.
For whatever reason, why not try out yoga for a change?
luna, diet + yoga for weight control? hmmm for sure the yoga sessions at edsa shangri-la's not for penny-pinchers like me. there are yoga classes in UP village quezon city, quite near my place but I think I can manage on my own on ordinary days for now :P
i haven't tried yoga. ok, to be honest, i'm not as good as what i preach about healthy living. i only take daily walking and few weekend household chores to keep my muscle cells for the very least, active. but i'm open to trying new things when i find time and chance.
