Intimate Blogger's Kundalini Yoga with Rosan Cruz at Discovery Primea

I've turned down a lot of event invites (specially at night) since my twin kids entered 7th grade. Being in a science school entails retaining high grades for Julia and Rafael. As a loving and supportive mom, I have to be there for them every step of the way. 

As the saying goes, in every rule there's an exemption. Lace, of Mommy Lace, invite for an Intimate Blogger's Kundalini Yoga session with anti-aging expery Rosan Cruz at Discovery Primea is an exemption. I immediately said yes to Lace as I'd like to renew my love for Yoga.

I was in Makati very early on the day of the event but a negative force was so strong that migraine and sinusitis attacked. I went home and slept. It was the prodding of my youngest son, Juan, that made me decide to just hit the road going to Discovery Primea. 

I didn't bring a car because I wasn't familiar with Discovery Primea. I was meant to be at this event because we immediately hailed a cab (which normally doesn't happen). Plus the cab driver was very courteous. He even know where Discovery Primea is. In his own words, "yan po Ma'am yung gusali na mataas at maganda. (That's the tall and beautiful building, Ma'am).

The cab driver was correct after all, Discovery Primea is a lovely place to behold
The hotel’s luxe ambiance made me feel like royalty.

From the lobby I went straight to the gym. Discovery Primea's gym, 37 Degrees, is modern with enough space and equipment to accommodate several guests. 

I got excited as I saw Karen Davila from afar! I was wrong though. The beautiful lady in all white yoga attire was  Certified Kundalini Yoga teacher, Rosan Cruz.  

I did yoga last year at a popular fitness place. I did core yoga and I swear I liked what it did to me - it toned my arms, legs and most of all my abs! But then I stopped, I just lost interest. Maybe I was looking for something more from yoga.

It was a different experience with Kundalini Yoga as I found myself crying during the session when Rosan said, "give thanks and appreciate...". It gave me clarity that I needed. The movements not only released physical tension but encouraged mindfulness and positivity that allowed participants to radiate love and beauty after the revitalizing session.  

Rosan led the bloggers to release stress, tension, and negative energy through a series of dynamic poses also known as kriyas.  The primary objective of Kundalini Yoga is to awaken the full potential of human awareness in each individual, recognize our awareness, refine that awareness, and expand that awareness to our unlimited Self. 

It was a fitting experience in that during the ancient times, Kundalini Yoga was kept secret and reserved only for the kings and queens. Today, everyone can benefit from the practice, radiate love, peace, and beauty, and attract only the best that life has to offer.

No previous experience in yoga is required to achieve results from the very first class, and it is suitable for students of all levels. Learn more about Kundalini Yoga with Rosan at Romulo Peace Center, Century Plaza, 120 Perrea St., Makati.  Schedule is Mondays from 6:30-8:0OPM. Contact number: (0918) 888-9198.

After the yoga practice, Ms. Jane Santiago led us to a luxurious afternoon snacks by Discovery Primea.

This Kundalini Yoga session at Discovery Primea that Lace organized is one of those events that make a blogger feel special. We were all taken cared very well. We even got to bring home the top we used from Frigga by Marites Allen, beauty product by Zenutrients, yoga mat, and a healthy drink from Detox in a Bottle.


More than the take home goodies, the experience of Kundalini Yoga with Rosan made me see and appreciate everything I have - my husband, my kids, my friends, my life. 

Seeing Discovery Primea is wonderful as I will be able to share to my family,  relatives, friends and readers about it's classic Mediterrenean Chinoiserie-inspired aesthetics;  its timeless and modern amenities.  The comfort, functionality and style while staying at Discovery Primea will surely delight you. I should know, I felt all of that during the Intimate Blogger's Kundalini Yoga with Rosan Cruz at Discovery Primea.

Having said all of the above, I like to say thank you Jane and Discovery Primea; thank you Rosan; thank you Frigga by Marites Allen; thank you Zenutrients; thank you Detox in a Bottle; thank you yoga mat for keeping our butts and backs protected while doing the poses. Most of all, thanks Lace for organizing this event!
