How’s your life like off the mat? What are your other hobbies?

When I’m not in the studio or working I make sure to spend time with my kids. I’m an adventurer. I love exploring the different parts of the Philippines. I like trekking, climbing, canyoneering, mountain biking and many more.

I’m also into vegetarian food art. I love decorating and experimenting with new vegetarian dishes. And when I don’t do yoga I love using TRX straps to enhance my yoga practice.
