Jane T. Uymatiao
Resource Speaker, Social media practitioner, and Yin yoga teacher in Manila, Philippines
Hello! I'm Jane Uymatiao and I'm known in social media circles as @philippinebeat and in the global yoga community as @yogajane. As a Certified Public Accountant and IT auditor/consultant, I spent close to 20 years in the corporate world doing IT audits and IT consultancy services as well as a couple of years as head of a bank's Corporate Planning Division. In 2006, I began blogging and became an early adopter of social media. I truly believe in the power of social media for companies and brands as well as for social good.
Together with a friend, I co-founded Prep2Prime Digital (P2P Digital). At P2P Digital, we do speaking engagements, run workshops and social business consulting services that span topics on social media engagement, social media in crisis communication plans, pro-active parenting, developing a wellness mindset, and reinventing one's life.
My yoga practice began in 2006 with vinyasa but eventually, I chose to focus on the yin yoga style which is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine concepts and received teacher training on yin yoga basics and yin meridians. Now, I'm working on furthering my knowledge on different healing modalities, stress management, and nutrition.
I'm also an alumni of the Cherie Blair Foundation's Mentoring Women in Business Programme. When I'm not blogging, on social media, or in a yoga class, I'm just happy spending time with my family.
