For those looking to live a fit life, finding motivation in Manila is no sweat. These days, there are countless events that get you off your couch and out of your house. Last Sunday, BGC-based yoga studio L!FE hosted Life At The Park, an outdoor yoga session.
Besides scenic views, a healthy dose of Vitamin D, and freedom from the confines of four walls, outdoor fitness activities like L!FE’s build a sense of community.
