It was a few years ago when I found myself dreaming of ways to teach courses on wellness, movement and spirituality but would always come up short.
Until one evening, while sitting alone in my room, I had a big idea. Hurriedly, I scribbled it down so that I wouldn’t forget it.
It was a beautiful sight – a vision filled with music, color, love and healing.

This got me so inspired that within a month, I already started building my first business – a boutique yoga studio and superfood café in the heart of Manila.
It seemed like the perfect timing. The Universe definitely agreed. Plans were sped up as I found a gorgeous location with the perfect sunset overlooking a golf course.
Resources, teachers and people arrived. In less than 3 months, we opened our doors.
LiFE was a creative community of yoga, music, art and meditation with over 10,000 wellness enthusiasts walking through our doors.
We put up wellness festivals and fun events, like Sunday yoga in the park and Friday night jams to live music.
While exciting, it was also the toughest years of my life.
Quite naïve, I had no idea what was in store and I ended up managing every single aspect of the business myself.
I found myself dead in the center of the fire of transformation.
Transformation – at the core of any alchemical process.
