The Yogini from Manila

the yoga scene in the Philippines & all else yoga….

Yoga Bloggers

If I posted your blog here it is because 1) well, you are obviously a yogi/yogini AND 2) you blog about yoga. Some of you are my dearest friends already.

It is always a delight when I come across yoga bloggers because I derive so much pleasure from reading different experiences and added knowledge from the advice of long-time practitioners. I hope exchanges with all of you will also improve my own knowledge, and practice, of yoga.

If you have a yoga blog and I still have not found you, do leave me a comment here with your URL. Namaste.

  6. Hi Jane!
    I wanted to share with you a yoga animation that I created at It is a great e-card website that allows you to upload photos from the web, cut and paste heads onto animated figures and customize the facial complexion to match the skin tone of the character. There are tons of cards to choose from and its free! In this animation, for an example I used two celebrities that are known for their skill in yoga. I hope you enjoy!

    Jane: Thanks! It does look like fun.

If you are coming home and interested in taking teacher training, look it up in my “Upcoming Events” page (located on the top part of my homepage). There are teacher training courses coming up. Namaste!

  18. Hi Jane.

    I’m Liza Jane Jardiolin and I have just moved to Iloilo. Once I settle in, I hope to lead a donation based class here in Pavia. I have tried several forms of hatha yoga and now am deepening my practice of Ashtanga Yoga. I was practicing with Bryan Kest in Santa Monica, CA before making my move here.

    I am a relative infant to yoga, having been lucky enough to practice more than a year now and renew my high raw lifestyle. The Philippines is an amazing place to be. I look forward to hearing and connect with fellow yogis like you.

    @Liza Jane – Oh how wonderful to find an Ilongga! I was born in Iloilo, you know.

    Let me know where you can be found once you’re set up. I have a friend who used to do yoga but hasn’t done so since relocating back to Iloilo. 🙂

  19. Salaam Jane,

    I would like to thank you for “introducing” some davao yoga instructors to me. It was through your blog that I knew of a Jon Cagas yoga seminar here last year. Since then I have renewed my erratic (since our only Davao yoga teacher left for Afghanistan, some yoga buddies and I were left orphans)yoga practice and have since been healthier.

    My blog talks about my work as an Islam Mindanao peace advocate, a mother and my yoga journey. You can find me at

    Again Salaam for your help.

    @Sarah – You are most welcome. I will add you up on my list of yoga bloggers. Namaste.

  20. Hi Sarah,

    We have recently opened a yoga studio in Davao City and through your website I hope to reach those that have been badly searching for a home to practice yoga in our city.

    I would like to invite everyone to come visit South Studio, check out our website or call us at 234.4042

    Thank you and Namaste

  21. Hi Jane,

    – Oh how nice to find another yoga blogger. Your blog is beautiful! I hope you can come to Manila one day. Look me up! Namaste.

  22. Hi Jane!

    DO you know any yoga instructors willing to handle classes in QC?
