City Adventures for the Titas of Manila

Thinking of ways to make your next catch-up session with your fellow Titas even more memorable? You can have your own brand of relaxed fun without needing to step out of the city. Try these stress-free suggestions:

1. Let your creativity flow by trying pottery and painting.

Get your hands dirty by kneading a lump of stoneware clay and molding it into whatever your heart desires or moving a paintbrush across a blank canvas. By attending a Hey Kessy Basic Slab Pottery workshop or a painting class at Sip & Gogh, you and your crew can spend a few peaceful hours learning something fun and transforming this newfound knowledge into beautifully designed artwork. Engaging in this artsy activity with your friends will fuel your creativity, provide an additional topic to talk about in your chat group, and could even expand your social circle. Plus, the gentle movements needed in sculpting and painting even help strengthen your hands, wrists, and arms, which definitely count as your exercise for the day!

To sign up for a class or inquire about Hey Kessy’s private workshops, visit http://workshops.heykessy.com/ or email events@heykessy.com. Hey Kessy is located at Phase 2, Level 2, Urban Turf, UP Town Center, Quezon City and Upper Ground Floor, New Wing, Alabang Town Center, Muntinlupa City. To register for a session at Sip & Gogh at Century City Mall, visit https://www.sipandgogh.com/CenturyMall/page/contact_us or email info.centurymall@sipandgogh.com. Sip & Gogh is located at 4/F Century Mall, Century City, Kalayaan Avenue corner Salamanca Street, Brgy. Poblacion, Makati City.

2. Challenge your body through unique exercises.

Tired of doing the same routine at the gym? Level up your regular workout session by trying something new as a group. Join an aerial conditioning class with Polecats and learn from internationally and locally certified teachers. No matter what your age, size, or flexibility level, you’ll have a blast learning mounts, tricks, and transitions that will help you eventually spin and flip in the air as you hold on to the hoop or silks. These aerial exercises are admittedly more intense, but the payoff is also greater. Just a few sessions of this low-impact workout will improve your upper body and core strength (hello, toned arms and abs!) and give you greater flexibility—all while being easy on the joints.

For busy Titas of Manila who only have time to squeeze in a quick workout, a 30-minute circuit class in Curves—an exclusive, all-women fitness gym—will do the trick! Within this short time period, your group can alternate on the strength training and cardiovascular training machines and each burn up to 500 calories surrounded by supportive group of female gym goers and trainers.

3. Learn effective meditation techniques.

In this modern age, having a demanding job, being constantly online, and living in the city are factors that can take a huge toll on your mental state. You need to make a conscious effort to still the mind by practicing daily reflection. Makati Meditation takes you on a contemplative journey consisting of seven levels that will help you let go of memories that are of no use to you anymore. Through regular meditation, you’ll be left with a clearer picture of your true self, an enlightened mind, and a more positive outlook in life.

4. Go real estate window shopping.

Nothing feels more gratifying than being an independent woman and doing things without having to answer to anyone. One way of becoming truly independent is by having a property under your name, but it’s not as simple as picking an outfit to wear for your next gym class. You’ll need the wisdom of your most trusted girls to help you choose the best vertical home that complements your personality and interests.
