Enrichment through Acupuncture, Massage & Restorative Yin Yoga
with Angela Watts
Sunday September 17 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Acupuncture Treatments provide a sense of calmness, groundedness and connection. People have commented that their acupuncture treatments help them feel like themselves again.
Yin Restorative Yoga offers the physical body a chance to relax and feel supported. It is a gentler way to vanish anxiety and empower mental positive affirmations while finding truth in your stillness.
Sarah Newman Kalb has had the pleasure of delivering gentle, safe & effective acupuncture treatments for over 17 years and is located upstairs across from Gulf Breeze URU, her favorite place to practice yoga. 🙂 Acupuncture and yoga go hand-in-hand, helping to nourish the spirit, mental- emotional and physical connection for each individual.
Angela Watts has had the pleasure of instructing yoga for 13 years and is part owner of URU Yoga Downtown. Restorative Yin Yoga is a deep passion of hers. She believes our daily lives (yang) are similar to that of a Rhinoceros; extremely majestic, proud and demands respect. While Yin is represented as a White Egret; beautiful, cleansing and liberating. Yin and Yang, when balanced, have a beautiful symbiosis relationship, just as these amazing creatures do.
When: October 22nd 3:00 to 4:30

:: ABOUT PREMA HARA ::
Kamaniya and Keshavacharya are kirtan gypsies, touring internationally as the sacred music duo Prema Hara. Attracted by Bhakti Yoga, the path of devotion, both have spent many years living in ashrams, searching for the divine through devotional service and singing. Seeing so many people's hearts transformed through the power of chanting sacred mantras, they were inspired to commit their lives to sharing the universal practice of kirtan with the world. Prema Hara has toured extensively throughout the USA & Europe, quickly gaining recognition as one of the West’s most prominent mantra music bands.
“Kamaniya & Keshavacharya Das create a kirtan experience that melts the heart and touches the spiritual Self. Their devotion is contagious and their sound is as Divine as the names of God they chant.” ~ Swami Ramananda (President, Integral Yoga Institute of New York)

Reiki Master & Teacher, Metaphysical Shaman, NLP Practitioner, Spiritual Mentor in the Taoist-Yogic Christ Tradition
I have always had a passion for alternative care. As a young adult, I chose Chiropractic care and mostly an organic home-grown diet, without really knowing why. For the past 6 years, I have had a passion for holistic health. I’ve pursued many certifications in the healing arts realm and I continue to seek out ways to improve the health of myself and others, as well as overall wellbeing and personal growth. I was introduced to Reiki almost 25 years ago, receiving my attunements and Reiki Master Certification many years later and it has become an integral part of my life both personally and professionally ever since.
Teaching is my passion and I am so grateful to be able to teach others ways to improve their health and life.
I am so honored to have received an invitation to teach Usui Reiki at URU Gulf Breeze. I will continue to do my very best to ensure students have a rewarding and meaningful experience in my classes.
