Workshops For The #TitasOfManila

I was invited by my friend and life coach, Kimi Lu (who I also featured in Cosmopolitan’s8 Plus-Size Models to Follow”) to “Positively Posh: Pamper Your Mind, Body, and Spirit” last week.

The location was Posh Nails in Perea, Makati, where about a dozen #TitasofManila like myself were treated to a mani-pedi and massage while participating in Kimi Lu’s life reflection workshop.

Tita Kate was here.

I won’t delve into the details because I want you to book a workshop with her to see for yourself what it’s like, but I will tell you that it reminds me of the creative writing workshops I had back in school, mixed with elements of a bohemian retreat and a very Tita tea party.

This is the life. I fell asleep in the middle of my pedi.

For the past few months, Kimi Lu has been organizing protons workshops that aim to bring more positivity into people’s lives with the help of creativity, reflection, and a bit of life coaching. It’s inspired by the scientific definition of protons: positively charged subatomic particles. If it sounds like a girly activity straight from an episode of Oprah, you’re absolutely right! And Titas like myself have been her loyal customers.

Kimi also taught us how to use a meditation bell, a.k.a. singing bowl.

As most Titas would agree, the clubbing lifestyle is no longer as appealing and the workaday world can get mundane. Even freelancers like myself need to de-stress. If you’re looking for something different to do in the city when you’re off duty, Kimi Lu’s protons workshops are worth a try.

    For now a days, I usually notice practical and modern women would prefer activities like this, which is more beneficial and fun ( meeting new faces). Will try this with my friends :))
