Rebel Yoga in Makati Welcomes Your Own Vision of Your Best Self
With the push of social media, a lot of fitness gyms nowadays tell you what you should look like—and more often than not, skinny is the way to go.
However, what works for you might not necessarily work for others and what might be healthy-looking for you is actually too far-fetched.
Here’s where Rebel Yoga shines through as they rebel against stereotypes by welcoming a diverse community with one mission–to be their own vision of their best selves.

Strategically located within Makati Central Business District along Dela Rosa Street corner Carlos Palanca Street, Rebel Yoga can be your next go-to place for a much-needed balance and stress-relief after work.
This is the place where you can basically be yourself on the mat while living in three principles–kindness, truth, and respect.
With 60-minute classes every day, Rebel Yoga offers the Yin or the relaxed practice where you sit, stand, kneel, and lie down as a form of meditation. The long poses aim to work wonders on your connective tissues, as well as in relaxing your thoughts—perfect after a busy day at work.
To tap in the muscles even further, Rebel Yoga offers the Flow, where you hold one pose in every breath to align both the mind and the body.
You can also try this in a heated setting with their Hot Flow.

Among the other classes they offer include Inferno Hot Pilates (a full-body workout), as well as feature classes like the Ashtanga (a yoga sequence within the pace of each student), Kali (Arnis, Filipino martial art), and Kundalini.
You’ll also be instructed by Rebel Yoga’s experienced teachers hailing from different backgrounds, who will see to it that you’re the best version of yourself.
