Living Soulfully
November 2014



Life is gift. The life force within us all, prana, allows us to live in the world and also reflect within so that we may live to our full potential.
With a grateful heart, we can share that life force with those around us by being compassionate, honest, fair, and balanced. While we share with others, we can honor ourselves and be thankful for our breath and the daily work we do. 
URU will offer gratitude classes Thanksgiving Day and cleansing classes the day after.
Take time this month to honor yourself and those around you. 






With love and gratitude,

Rebecca Sathre, Chris Amador & the URU Crew

“The attitude of gratitude is the highest yoga.”


~Yogi Bhajan

Upcoming Events
Pranayama Workshop
with Susandhya Andrea
Breath is life, throughout the day we take more than 20,000 breaths often without giving it much consideration. Ancient Yogis discovered that through conscious connection with the breath they could not only improve their practice but their overall well-being. Their wisdom and experimentation gave birth to the Indian science of Pranayama, which includes a wealth of techniques dedicated to offer practitioners physical, physiological, psycho-emotional and spiritual benefits. 
Join Susandhya for an in-depth exploration of the breath as a vehicle for transformation and take home the insight and tools to establish a regular Pranayama practice. All levels welcome!

He became physically stronger, emotionally grounded, more self-aware and had a lot of fun. He became a yoga instructor in 2012, completing the 200-hour yoga teaching training at Abhaya Yoga Center with Nancy LaNasa and Beckie Sathre.
