URU Yoga in April

What is Yoga?

In Sanskrit, the root word of yoga, yuj, means “to yoke” or “to unite”.


Yoga is union.

Kula, in Sanskrit, means community, clan or tribe. Our yoga kula is sacred because we gather together with shared intention and purpose to practice the teachings of yoga through rightful action.

URU means broad, spacious, and abundant.

For URU, Kula and Yoga unite together with the yoga community as a whole. We truly believe that the yoga community is an amazing network of support, balance and connection.

Yoga is Union. Yoga is Presence. Yoga is Community. Yoga is Love. Yoga is Inclusion. Yoga is Connection. Yoga is Compassion. Yoga is Kula.                         Yoga is Rightful Action. 

Bikram Pensacola closes it’s beautiful location today, March 31st.

Nicole from Bikram Yoga Pensacola is loved by so many. All I ever hear is how kind she is and what a great teacher she is to the students of Bikram Yoga Pensacola. Nicole carried a token with the words below while in teacher training….

“Change is a door that can only be opened from the inside.”

URU and Nicole Trboyevich are partnering to bring Bikram Method classes at all 4 URU locations for the month of April. Bikram students may fulfill their current packages at URU in Bikram Method classes or any other URU yoga classes and URU students get the opportunity to study Bikram with Nicole.

During the month of April, please welcome Nicole and her students to the studios. Please check the schedule for Bikram Method classes at each studio.

We love you, our Kula,

Journey Through
the 5 Koshas
Saturday, April 1
URU by the airport

Join Bhagya Shree on a journey through the layers of the body. The Koshas are an ancient form of yogic anatomy. The koshas are likened to the layers of an onion or Russian dolls that fit inside of each other. In this class, you will have the opportunity to connect with each of the 5 Koshas of your body, mind, and spirit.

The class will begin with cleansing breath work, chanting and sun salutations. Then we will move into the layers of the body with a sequence of poses that will be repeated 3 times which focuses on the first 3 layers or sheaths. Next we will move through a powerful cleansing kriya which will prepare us for a wonderful savasana, seated pranayama, and a beautiful mediation whilst we focus on the final 2 Kosha layers of intuition and bliss.

These features are utilized to clear the energetic pathways or nadis and their junction points or chakras. These practices promote clarity, vitality, and peace.
