SOUL SIERRA

Hi, Everyone!

I’m so excited to share this with you! Our family home is now, Soul Sierra – the wellness place ❤

We are opening our doors this Friday for our first ever wellness retreat, BE PRESENT 4 Days & 3 Nights Boutique Retreat!

bepresentpost1bepresentpost2

It all happened so quickly thanks to, Grant Kellogg, who is one of our facilitators flying in from Bali. I met Grant in April, on my first day in Ubud, Bali. I know everyone who’s been around him can agree that he sparks a bright light in your heart, and I cannot wait to have you all meet him!

Another amazing yogi who will be joining us is, Jonah Kest. He will be facilitating beautiful and innovative yoga classes for us during the retreat, as well as for our weekend events (I will share those, shortly).

Apart from the 4 day retreat, we also have 2 afternoon events that will integrate with the retreat. These events are open to all:

  • Saturday 1st June – Cacao Transcendance 4pm – 7pm

 A Cacao Ceremony full of love, inspiration and oneness held by Grant Kellogg, followed by an enchanting Ecstatic Dance session with music by Divine Maitland-Smith.

 Ecstatic Dance is where you can let go and free your body through movement. Everyday we lead our bodies to do things we ‘need to do’, but what about letting our bodies lead us? Give this time to listen to your Self. Allow your body to flow which ever way it wants, letting go of judgement and fear. This is a safe place for transformation, healing, and releasing blockages or emotions. The space is open for all ages and all beings with an open heart and mind. We are all here together on our own journeys but we forget that we are all here as One.

Join us as we drink cacao and transcend into the depths of our souls.

Rules:

– Honor the space by not talking or taking photos/videos

– Embrace the dance space as sacred and safe

– Enjoy the journey. (If you can get out of your head and into your heart with your movement, you will have an amazing experience)

What to expect:

– Delicious cacao!

– Water and fruit

– Wear comfortable clothes and please bring swimwear, towels, and a change of clothes incase of rain as we will continue to dance

– There may be congestion by Temple of Leah, so please schedule to arrive by 4PM

  • Sunday 2nd June – New Moon Chocolate Yoga 4pm – 7pm

 A Cacao Ceremony for manifestation and empowerment held by Grant Kellogg, followed by a Hip Hop Vinyasa class by Jonah Kest.

 A beautiful sunset yoga session in the luscious mountains of Cebu City with an extremely skilled yogis. You won’t want to miss this session! Let go of any distractions and give this time for yourself by focusing on the present and on what’s happening on your mat. This is the time to let go of self-doubt and fear, and become the best version of yourself. Through yoga and breath, we can connect to the Source and remember the power we have within us.

What to expect:

– Delicious cacao!

– Water and fruit

– Wear comfortable yoga or gym clothes

– Please bring a yoga mat. If you don’t have one there will be mats available

– There may be congestion by Temple of Leah, so please schedule to arrive by 4PM

Metro Society’s SUMMER SOUL at AZURE

 The day of the Summer Soul event had arrived! Not only were we there to celebrate Metro Channel, but we also came together to support Crimson’s campaign, ‘Adopt a Clam’ to help keep our oceans protected.  I was very excited to see what was in store for the evening.

With an all white dress code, I had prepared myself by designing and creating outfits for myself, my sister and two of my girlfriends. It was my first time making outfits for an event so I was very excited to see everyone in their SOLTI custom designs!

At about 3pm, Krishtal and I headed to Crimson so we could start getting dolled up. Here is a video of us using the awesome KISS Instawave hair curler for the first time. To be honest, it took a few minutes to get used to, plus I just had my hair cut shorter! BUT, it definitely worked and it makes curling your hair so much easier :]

After an hour of hair and make up, it was time to shine. My ladies rocked my SOLTI custom designs, the weather was perfect, and the set up at Azure was stunning. We couldn’t have asked for more!

The garden was flowing with lovely people in white, refreshing cocktails and delicious hors d’oeuvres. We mingled with our fellow Cebuanos and then headed to the benefit dinner on the beach.

Everything looked enchanting with blue lights, decor and floral centre pieces. There was a buffet with a delicious variety of cuisines, and even though I joined in on the feast, Azure still spoiled me with my very own vegan plate!

img_8347-1Summer-Soul-party-hosts-Joey-Mead-and-Tim-YapThe hosts for the evening, Joey & Tim presented us with the first episode of Metro Channel’s new show starring Maggie Wilson and Marc Nelson called, Beached.

The evening was full of food, wine and great company, but what topped it off for me were the number of adopted clams! My friends and I even adopted one :] The campaign was definitely a success and marine life advocates were more than pleased. Thank you, Crimson for helping protect our clams! Readers, its time to adopt yours, too!

More about campaign from the Crimson website:

The 8-hectare marine reserve hosts 98 juvenile Tridacna or Giant Clams, first introduced in 2nd December 2016 in the reserve to allow a safe and conducive area to grow and develop. Because the protected area has a strict no-take implementation, continues monitoring by a marine biologist and various other protective measures, these Tridacna have found a good habitat in the resort’s foreshore.

The first of its kind in Cebu, Crimson Resort & Spa Mactan is putting up for adoption the 98 Tridacna or Giant Clams for a year. By adopting one of these clams, you will be contributing to its protection and growth.

In June, a scheduled tagging activity will be conducted to fully monitor the growth, movement and development of these clams.

To adopt a clam, please contact info.mactan@crimsonhotel.com.

The night ended with summer beats and more mingling. Everything was truly perfect. Thank you Metro and Crimson for delightful event!

P.S. If you would like to customize your swimwear or have an outfit designed by me, please contact me at staysolti@gmail.com 🌷 I located in Cebu and all of my designs are handmade. Thank you!
