Finding inner peace through yoga and community fellowship
With all the hustle and bustle of a fast-paced lifestyle in the metro, finding a sanctuary from the chaos of everyday living can be a challenge for many urban dwellers.
Luckily for residents of DMCI Homes communities, the developer’s condominium projects are designed to provide a nurturing environment that encourages a life of leisure and wellness with their invigorating resort-inspired amenities and facilities.
For Siena Park Residences unit owner Thea Gutierrez, having this kind of environment that is conducive for relaxation is important for people in the metro to endure life in the concrete jungle.
A Vinyasa Yoga practitioner who had her 200-hr Ashtanga-Vinyasa Teacher Training, Gutierrez has been teaching the Hindu discipline of muscle control and meditation to her neighbors in the Bicutan, Parañaque condo community every week to help them cope with the stresses of urban living.
“With yoga you can do proper breathing. It gives relaxation as well as stretching and toning, giving your body that good stretch and detoxifying. That’s why you sweat a lot in yoga. I wanted to make yoga unintimidating to my neighbors, that it is a very accessible form of exercise even if you are a beginner or not flexible. Yoga is for everyone,” she explained.
Gutierrez said she is thankful to have found a home in DMCI Homes’ Siena Park Residences community that supports her quest for inner peace amid her busy life as a marketing professional.
“Everything that you need is here—the space for jogging, the gym, the clubhouse, the swimming pool, the basketball/volleyball/tennis court, everything that you need for exercise. The security team and the Property Management Office (PMO) are topnotch. You have that sense of security, orderliness and peace of mind every time you’re at home,” Gutierrez shared.
