About the classes and teachers

Vinyasa with Anna

Start your weekend with a rejuvenating vinyasa flow. This open-level yoga class will help you learn how to breathe seamlessly and move gracefully through an invigorating and stretchy sequence. Find your grounding presence using sun salutations and connected movements of folding, bending, twisting, and even inverting. Flow through the ups and downs of your practice, around obstacles that come your way, and develop the strength and confidence to face anything – in and out of the mat.

Anna Cristina Manalastas believes that yoga can be a wonderful approach towards having a meaningful relationship with oneself and with others. Using breath work, movement, and meditation in yoga, one can open, strengthen, and heal the mind, body, and spirit. This practice also helps the practitioner develop a mindful awareness to face challenges with compassion and discernment.

Anna graduated from her 300-Hour Vinyasa Yoga teacher training under Clayton Horton and Anna Carbonell. She continues to evolve in her practice and teaching through furthering her studies on yoga and its philosophies, which she actively shares in her classes. She travels around Asia to explore different styles of yoga and to take part in continuing education programs, yoga conferences and workshops, meditation classes, and teacher trainings. She is certified to teach Basic Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Pregnancy Yoga. She is also a Reiki Level 1 practitioner.

Yoga Nidra with Jali

In this 45-minute Yoga Nidra, students will follow verbal cues that will lead them to a state of deep relaxation, close to a sleep-like state, while remaining fully conscious. The sequence is also an exercise in withdrawing the senses and gaining mastery of external influences. If this sounds like gibberish to you, no worries. Just imagine lying down for 45 minutes and getting up feeling refreshed.

After cleaning floors, wiping mats, and painting murals for yoga studios in exchange for free classes, Jali Fernando took her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga District in Washington, DC. Drawn to the teachings of kindness and compassion of Sri Dharma Mittra, she went on to take her 500-hour certification under the living master in New York. She has taught studio and community classes in the US and is currently teaching private classes in Antipolo.

Restorative with Cel

Slow it down with a relaxing Restorative sequence. In Restorative Yoga, we target the connective tissues, such as ligaments and fascia, along with the energetic systems of the body, bringing the body into balance and increasing it’s natural range of motion. End the afternoon feeling refreshed, renewed, and restored.

Celine Encarnacion has always been inspired by dance and movement – how it uses our body to convey emotions and messages, the discipline, focus, and presence of mind that goes into learning the fundamentals, the story each gesture conveys to the audience. She is know using her background and passion for movement to inspire others to move as well. Cel is a Plana Forma© senior instructor, a Zumba© teacher, and yoga teacher to both kids and adults.
