AWESOME ROMBLON: Awesome Guide to Tablas Island! (Itinerary)

Romblon: Tablas
Tablas: our first stop in our Awesome Romblon adventure! Romblon is composed of three major islands that one must visit–Romblon Town, Tablas Island, and Sibuyan Island.

Famed for being the Marble Capital of the Philippines, the province's marble is comparable to the world's best. Trade plays a big role in Romblon's economy by virtue of its location at the center of the archipelago.

The islands are blessed with natural beauty such as beaches, rivers, mountains, and diverse eco-systems, which offer tourists many opportunities for adventures like scuba, trekking, and snorkeling.

Here's Team OAP's guide to exploring Tablas Island…

@UrbanAshramYoga: Why FNR (Flexibility Not Required) Yoga is for Everyone (plus Nourish by Chef Guy)

FNR Yoga @UrbanAshramYoga

FNR or Flexibility Not Required yoga is a foundation class at URBAN ASHRAM MANILA meant for beginner or returning yogis who want to learn and practice yoga in the most progressive and safe way.


One of the biggest reasons why most people are afraid to try yoga is because they say they aren’t flexible enough but in fact, improving your flexibility is one of the benefits of practicing it. FNR prepares the student to handle more complex yoga work by balancing strength and range of motion.

Here’s our experience at Urban Ashram Manila’s FNR yoga class…
