Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa Fetes Global Wellness Day 2016

"He who breathes fully can live fully" says Yogini Xenia Momongan during the Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa Celebration of Global Wellness Day on June 11, 2016. As breathing means living, we sometimes forget that our body needs to be physically well to breath well and live well. In this Era which everything is wired and instant, people have neglected the importance of healthy living as we are pinned to our busy schedules, work and other activities that we deal everyday. With the slogan “One day can change your whole life,” Global Wellness Day would be the first step to change your Health views and start living well.

What a great view at Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa!!

We planned to hold our Global Wellness Day in Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa's Boat Jetty with their Sunrise Yoga on an early Saturday morning. But the weather did not cooperate which gave us cumulonimbus clouds instead of a smiling sunshine. Good thing they have an indoor spa, Chi which accommodated all Cebu Media and Bloggers who were participating the Global event. Our Yogini Xenia Momongan guided us with Stretches and warm-ups before doing Yoga.

It was CebuFitnessBlog Author Mark Monta's first time on joining Yoga. We tried different Yoga Poses which I believe designed for Beginners as most of the participants admitted it was their first session too. As far as I remember, Yogini Xenia taught us Mountain Pose, Downward Dog, Warrior, Tree Pose, Seated Twist, Cobra and Child's Pose. After the relaxing activity, I honestly love Yoga than lifting irons in the Gym. But I'm still reconsidering some factors on switching from Progressive Resistance Training (PRT) to Yoga because I'm already comfortable with working out but let's see.

So, what do we expect after an early Yoga Session? Of course, a healthy breakfast of Champions which was prepared at Ocean Pavilion. We were joined by The Resort's Triathletes, Captain of the Philippines National Triathlon Team, Mr. Nikko Huelgas and of course, Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa General Manager RenΓ© Egle. If you've been a Yoga practitioner, you really know what to eat as your post-workout fuel. On an early morning class, it is advisable to rehydrate first foor at least half a liter of water then have a little of everything - and I mean a little of protein, healthy fats and carbohydrates. Thanks to Shangri-La Mactan as they prepared everything for the participants. We had scrammbled eggs for protein, fish and some vegetables for healthy-fats and some wheat breads and other kind of breads for carbs. They are not just healthy, but very good and tasty.

Yes! We say Yes to Global Wellness Day 2016! It was really relaxing as we were freed from City Stress and Yoga indeed helped us be calm and enter into a deep meditation for a healthy benefits of our mind and soul. For some of the participants, this would be their first Fitness and Wellness motivation.

First celebrated in 2012, Global Wellness Day was established in Turkey as the “first” day dedicated to living well, and has now been accepted world-wide, and it is officially celebrated in 73 countries in 2015, reflecting its success. (

Top 10 LaBoracay Hunks on Instagram

In the Philippines, May 1 is widely known as Labor Day. And instead of Workers protests and other street activities, some laborers chose to stay positive and celebrate the Holiday in the beautiful island of Boracay. Thus Laboracay was born. It is a summer party celebration in Boracay. Famous artists both local and foreign often visit Boracay during this time. It is marked by intense partying by the beach, lots of booze and good music.

It is also known that people who planned to attend this party were already preparing themselves months before the big day. As they say, the struggle is real. Strict diet and extreme exercises were their keys to obtain their hunky bodies for Laboracay. Six packs, mass shoulders and well-built upper extremity were the uniforms of Hunks in Boracay. In this special article, we are giving the highlights to our LaBoracay Hunks who deserve a space in this blog.
