Today, Chona and I had a wonderful lunch at Italiannis Greenbelt with our yogi friend fresh from Riyadh, Jon Cagas. This was a MUST lunch because last December when we had lunch with Jon, my camera’s memory card was corrupted and I lost all the pictures including our Italiannis lunch.
Jon is back from a Riyadh stint. He is in town for just a few days, flying to Davao by Wednesday to visit his family, then from there will spend several months in India doing yoga.
As Jon is vegetarian, he ordered Caesar Salad and Penne Arrab while Chona and I went for the Sicilian Salad and Parmesan Crusted Fish Fillet. All were yummy! And yes, dessert was Tiramisu!
A wonderful gift that Chona & I received from Jon was a yoga book (and chocolates, to boot!). Sweet, sweet Jon! Of course, lunch turned into an autograph signing event too, hahaha!
One would think Jon’s trip to Davao would be just pure family time. Nope, this generous soul will be conducting 3 yoga classes for Davaoeños who will have a chance to experience yoga with this amazing Ashtanga yoga instructor (read all about his journey in my previous blog post HERE).
So for people in Davao who have been looking for decent yoga classes, Jon’s 3 classes promise to be more than just decent. They will be amazing!
Details are below:
July 13, Sunday 1:30-5pm Intro to Ashtanga class and demo
July 14, Monday 7:30-9pm Basic Ashtanga class
Venue: Smashville Fitness Center, Magsaysay Avenue, Davao City
Cost: P600 for the 3 classes
They will be providing exercise mats but if you have a yoga sticky mat, it is recommended you bring it along.
