Peace at Urban Ashram Manila


My 15 day pass at Urban Ashram BHS for only Php 1,000.00


If you are tired of the usual gym routine, the heavy gym equipments even the smell of your fitness club, then its time to try yoga as an alternative workout. Since gym or yoga is part of my training program, I decided to temporarily leave the fast pace life in the gym and do more yogas to ease my mind of too much work related stress recently…


The relaxing reception area that gives one the feeling of entering a spa


End of January, I tried the Urban Ashram branch at Bonifacio High Street because of a recommendation of another triathlete. It was a pleasant experience as soon as one enters the dimly lit lobby. As an interior designer, I am particular about how lobbies and reception areas would look like as this gives the first statement of any establishment. Urban Ashram may not be the best interior designed yoga center in Asia, but it gave a positive welcome due to the relaxing effect brought by the mix of wood, neutral colors and dim lights.

Clean and modern shower area. However, I wish my back pack would fit the lockers



Great smelling hand soap at the ladies room


After my first visit, I had been too busy again with work and domestic duties. But, before my 15 day pass ended, I was able to do another Urban Ashram Experience, this time with my daughter. Both sessions had been excellent workouts! So, as soon as I come back from my Xterra race this Saturday, I will sign up for a couple more classes. My daughter had a great time too and will do her sessions during her summer break.

About pinayironmom

Pinay Ironmom is a typical mom who wakes up before 6 am to prepare my 3 children for school. After this, I make my husband coffee, similar to the Nescafe commercial on TV of a couple's typical morning. Work is normally a tour of Northern or Southern Luzon to inspect projects we are building, checking quality of designs or preparation of presentations to prospective clients. My schedule is flexible luckily, I can squeeze in hearty lunches with my favorite lunchmate and training early in the afternoon or right after business hours. Weekends are bike days on Saturdays at MOA or Daang Reyna and Sunday is my me time - my long run day. Oh warm ups and stretchings are trips to the grocery, cool down is hearing mass and giving thanks to God for a wonderful week. This is ME :)
