Beyond Experience: Yoga/Antigravity/Fitness Rockwell

Instagram-sized photobooth

Before yesterday, the extent of my Yoga knowledge was just between me and a Wii console. So, after hearing news about a new studio - Beyond - opening its doors in Makati's Rockwell, I took the opportunity to try it out.

Friendly concierge

Free classes were held on their opening day yesterday. I secured a slot for a Vinyasa class ahead of time, feeling excited to finally experience having an actual Yogi/Yogini supervise my movements.

Receiving area as a little cramped

But traffic happened. And a little bit of runaround looking for their address - #38 Rockwell Drive (FYI, it's beside Ateneo Graduate School brick building). When I got there, the session was being wrapped up.

A peaceful view

Instead of turning back, sweating it out on the next class - a zumba/dance sesh - seemed like a good idea. As a fitness class virgin, I felt a little insecure about how my moves would fare to the seemingly experienced crowd around me.

Yoga mats provided

The instructor was quick to boost our confidence from the very start, though. She told us not to be shy, just have fun and reminded us that "There are no wrong moves, just unexpected solos".

First Zumba class

An hour of latino-inspired footwork and booty-shaking later, my heart rate was up and my underwear was damp. That was a lot of fun! I reckon that I could do that sort of thing regularly. 

Fitness for all ages

Beyond Yoga's opening promo includes a 50% discount on select packages. I'll definitely sign up for the 1 month unlimited P2300 (regular price P4600). This rate is available until November 15, 2014.

Beyond Rockwell's opening discount: 50% off!

I may not have experienced what I came there for (yoga class), but that goal is just one easy step away.
