Tips for Choosing Clothes for Yoga Exercise More Optimal

Yoga is a form of physical exercise that is quite practical, because it does not require a lot of equipment. Doing so can be anywhere, both indoors and outdoors even at home, provided you know the correct movements.

In addition to good quality mattresses, clothing is also an important consideration when doing yoga. Clothes must be comfortable so that yoga movements can be done freely. Yoga instructors and lovers, Priscilla Aliwarga provides some tips on choosing yoga clothes.

1. Elastic
Clothing materials must have a sufficient level of elasticity. Flexibility of material is important enough for the body to move freely, especially when doing difficult and acrobatic yoga poses.


2. Not Too Tight or Loose
Clothes should fit in the body. Not too tight or too loose. Clothes that are too tight can make it difficult for you to breathe and are not comfortable when the body releases a lot of sweat.

3. Absorb sweat
Priscilla explained, despite the type of low-impact exercise, yoga makes the body sweat a lot. The slower the movement, the more energy and muscle that is used, so that sweat comes out more. For that, clothing is needed with materials that are comfortable and easily absorb sweat.

4. Porous
Fiber fabrics must have cavities that allow air circulation. Some sports clothing materials are made of polyester and nylon which tend to be tight. So that sweat collects under the clothes and causes discomfort.

The presence of pores in yoga clothes will make the skin feel comfortable and cool even though it is sweaty. To find out whether the clothes material has enough pores for the skin to breathe, touch the material and relax.Read More

World War II Comfort Women – Bringing about Global Rifts?

On December 8, 2017, the anniversary of Japan’s initial invasion of Manila, along the iconic Manila Bay, a 7 foot World War II “Comfort Woman” bronze statue was unveiled. National Historical Commission of the Philippines chairman Rene Escalante and Acting Executive Director Ludovico Badoy attended the unveiling ceremonies. Once unveiled, the statue almost immediately stirred up controversy. The Japanese Embassy in Manila contacted the Manila City administrator to ask about the statute and express strong reservations.

According to Jojo Alcovendaz, Manila City administrator Jojo, the Japanese officials were concerned that the issue of comfort women and comfort women testimonies , which they thought they had settled years ago, was still a serious issue for their country, for China and for Korea. They wondered why with the strong ties between the two countries a statue of their past would be erected in Manila, at this time. He also said that the Japanese Embassy informed him that when the statue of a comfort woman was erected on private land in San Francisco in the US, that action led to the ties between San Francisco and its sister city, Osaka, to be severed. Alcovendaz noted that the story about the comfort woman statue was carried by newspapers in Japan and China highlighting the strength of the feelings around this symbol.

So who exactly are these comfort women and why are the statutes put up in their honor causing rifts across continents and damaging relationships like the San Francisco Osaka sisterhood relationship that was 60 years strong? What is so compelling about their story that Philippine Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano would warn that the Philippines “long-term” relationship with Japan is at stake over the erection of the statute?

For that, we have to go back to World War II when Japan invaded the Philippines and enslaved about 1,000 young women and girls to be sex slaves to the invading army. While that number appears small in Manila, many researchers have estimated that around 200,000 women, mostly in Korea but some from China, Indonesia, Taiwan and of course the Philippines, served Japanese soldiers in “comfort shelters”. The 200,000 number has not been accepted by all and has been challenged by a professor at the Seoul National University who put the estimate at only about 5,000. Whatever the number, this issue touched a lot of countries and a lot of women and is still a very raw subject on both the victims and the perpetrators’ side.

After the war, in 1956, Japan entered into the Reparations Agreement with the Republic of the Philippines to provide the Philippines with $550 million in reparations and this according to the Philippines authorities, “officially settled” the matter. Cayetano stated that “The official stand not of the DFA but of the Philippines for several years is that it has been officially part of the reparations and it has been officially settled,” However, the World War II comfort women have criticized that stance and are demanding a public apology and compensation … Read More
