Setting Your Intention
January 2015



It is 2015! We are in a new time and on new soil where we can grow and harness our energy by the use of vision, intention and action.  Intentions can only be fulfilled with actions.  Actions must have a commitment behind them.  Committing to our intentions and putting our actions in place are needed to make our visions come true.  
What is your deepest desire or your truest vision?  What will it take for you to live life as your authentic self?  Is there a word, a thought or an idea that will help you find that perfect balance from which you can open your heart and expand your life? Or is it silence and stillness that will call you into your being?  Is it movement, flowing or dance that will help you bloom into full growth? 
In the winter, seeds are in the dark being nurtured by the soil. As the days get longer what seeds will you plant and how will you nourish and cultivate them successfully? 
“Your beliefs become your thoughts, 
Your thoughts become your words, 
Your words become your actions, 
Your actions become your habits, 
Your habits become your values, 
Your values become your destiny.”
Have you ever wondered about the URU logo and all those intersecting circles? It represents “The Flower of Life” where the Vesica Piscis forms its center. In sacred geometry this center represents us all,  the One,  the Beginning from which we all begin. It is our perfect balance. From this original energy, we grow and expand, never contract; we cannot go back, we only go forward.  The Vesica Pisces is the the threshold where you have left what is behind and you have full faith in what you are stepping into.  The Vesica Pisces where the circles merge creates a space of infinite possibilities
“Faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.”  
Imagine the Vesica Piscis, that One-ness, from which we all originate. That perfect equilibrium of all life’s energy at the center of life is the place where we can begin. It is the place where we decide how we will grow, where we set our intention.





If yoga is part of your journey this year, please know we are here to assist you in any way that you need.  

With love and gratitude,

Rebecca Sathre, Chris Amador & the URU Crew

‘Path of the Seed’

Keep moving toward the sun;
focus high, above the blinding soil,
clear away all that keeps
a seed from seeing its Light.

Grace has placed its rays
on the path of which you grow;
follow this amber jewel
to the place beyond the clouds.

Rain may pound your leaves
and push them down
around your stem,
but these are the messengers
from the One. Receive them,
learn from them, let them
nourish your roots.

Just keep moving toward the sun,
until it pulls each petal back,
one by one, revealing
your ripened bud-
release your Self completely
into every, single, fleeting, moment
that your essence longs
to stretch itself freely
across the blue sky.

Amber began her yoga journey at Abhaya Yoga Center in 2008 where she was surprised to find peace for her body, peace for her mind and peace for her soul and wanted to share that peace with everyone around her. In 2011 that opportunity presented itself in the form of teacher training at Abhaya Yoga Center so Amber jumped in full body, mind and soul. She is forever greatful to Nancy LaNasa, Beckie Sathre, and Tammy Virchow Urbansky for sharing their love and knowledge of yoga with her. Gulf Breeze has always been her home where she continues to find peace in her yoga practice and lives with her awesome husband and two cats.  Amber can also be found teaching in Gulf Breeze at the Club.
