I first tried yoga a few months ago. Though I’ve already tried a variety of workouts, yoga is one thing that I just never got the hang of. I LOVE moving and having to keep still bums me out. However, I appreciated yoga more after trying a session of Bikram Yoga at Evolve. …Funny thing was, I really didn’t want to try it at first.

Evolve Fitness Studio:

Evolve, a fitness studio that energizes people to live life to the fullest, is ready to serve the Metro South with its new class offerings and services. Formerly Bikram Yoga Alabang, the studio transitioned to meet the diverse needs of its students and growing community.

“Evolve is an important step in our goal of helping more people in their journey to health and wellness,” said Ginger Diaz-Serrano, Evolve studio director. She founded Bikram Yoga Alabang (BYA) in 2010, after completing her training and certification as a yoga instructor in 2007 and teaching full time for three years. “While we recognize our heritage as a Bikram yoga studio, we believe that we can serve our students better by providing new options in terms of classes, learning sessions, and programs that support a healthy lifestyle,” Diaz-Serrano explained.

Along with improved facilities, Evolve now features a range of classes taught by a roster of qualified teachers based in Manila and from around the world. Regular students and newcomers can look forward to experiencing Vinyasa, Hot Vinyasa Flow, Absolute Hot Yoga, among others, as well as Bikram Yoga classes.





Bikram Yoga

Bikram Yoga, similar to hot yoga is a type of yoga that allows you to stretch and meditate in a heated room. Here, you will be able to cleanse your body as it sweats out all the bad toxins as you cleanse your mind through meditation. A lot of people initially find this a little bit scary… including myself. I mean, who in their right mind would want to go into a heated room with a bunch of other people as some form of exercise? In my mind I thought, “I’m going to faint from the intense heat!” However, my experience was the complete opposite. I went in scared and quite hesitant but came out wanting more! I felt really good after! Yes it was hot, but at Evolve, you will not be immediately thrown into a heated room. The room will be gradually warmed up as you are inside, that way, your body adjusts with it.

Besides Bikram itself, I also enjoyed the class at Evolve because of the instructors. The instructors were very approachable and accommodating. Knowing that each student was at a different level, the instructor would often give a variety of poses for us to follow. If we felt we were more advanced, we were encourage to get out of our comfort zone. On the other hand, beginners were asked to maintain a “safer” pose to prevent any injuries.

I love movement exercises, but yoga definitely helps strengthen my mind, body and core. I highly recommend you guys to give it a try!
