July Yoga Newsletter 2015


July 2015


This month we celebrate freedom and liberation. We have the ability to free our minds by surrendering to our true Self. There is a Spirit that resides behind all of our thoughts and gives us energy when we connect to it. 
When we breathe and detach from our thoughts allowing them to move by us effortlessly, we tap into this Spirit, our Self, our God, and we surrender to that which guides us. This is true Freedom. 
Embrace surrender. Enjoy independence. Celebrate freedom to live in a country where self-expression is embraced more and more.


With love and gratitude,
Rebecca Sathre, Chris Amador & the URU Crew

Yoga Pricing Changes in the Community



In an effort to create a more sustainable future for the Pensacola yoga community, Breathe Yoga and Wellness Center and URU Yoga and Beyond are joining together to ask for a greater financial contribution for yoga classes. The drop in rates for both student and regular drop-ins will be raised to $7 and $12 respectively at all locations of both Breathe and URU, effective August 1st, 2015



Although Breathe and URU are separate entities, owned and operated independently of one another, the owners of both studios have agreed to work together on this simultaneous rate increase as a show of mutual support for the growth of our yoga community.


Your increased contributions will go toward continued and ongoing improvements to your studio(s), and to supporting the well-being and sustainability of these places that often serve as a sanctuary and second home. We are asking for your support in making this transition a smooth one.



If for any reason this change will cause a financial hardship for you or make you unable to continue at your current frequency of practice, please contact the director(s) of your chosen studio and talk with them about work exchange options that might make the practice more affordable. Class Packages and Unlimited Pricing will be posted on the website.

URU Teacher Training 2015/2016


Beginning Friday, September 11

URU offers a local Pensacola Yoga Teacher Training. We are registered with Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level. We start in September and end in May each year. The strength of the URU teacher training is that you have so much hands on teaching experience through mentorship and you will be able to teach yoga with confidence and grace when you graduate. Our training takes you through personal growth as well as growth in new and old relationships. You will gain a deeper understanding of yourself and you will find your voice as a teacher as well as a human being.

We will study asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, Thai Yoga Bodywork, mantra, mudras, anatomy and physiology and more. You will learn to teach beginner to advanced classes. You also have the opportunity to mentor and teach hot yoga or aerial yoga if that is where you are drawn. You will begin to see where you are naturally drawn as a teacher and you will also stretch that boundary to see what your capabilities are.

The URU Yoga Teacher Training is a peak pose vinyasa based teacher training with an emphasis on alignment. An URU class contains mantra, a theme, pranayama, vinyasa flow, alignment and meditation. You will be encouraged to find your authenticity as a teacher as well as a human being. You will be encouraged to engage fully into your teaching and life.

Teacher Training is a commitment. Please be ready to commit yourself fully to the training for yourself, the teachers, and the other teacher trainees..

The time commitment is 1 weekend a month for 9 months, plus 2 yoga classes a week, home study assignments and 2 karma practicum classes at the end of the month.

The financial commitment is $2400 or
3 payments of $900 (September 1st, December 1st, and March 1st)

We love sharing the love of teaching with you.

Please invite any friends that you think would be interested..

We have applied for benefits with MyCaa for Military Spouses which will pay for the training.
