Reiki, Feminine Flow Dance, Sensually Alive Workshop, and more! Practice of the Week: Showing up for your practice in studio is amazing, AND there is something extra magical about showing up for your practice outside of the studio. The URU team desires to support you in deepening your personal practice and to empower you to take learning and practicing into your own hands. This week we invite you to explore the second Yama! This is a Sanskrit word for positive duty or observance. Satya The Yogic version of the Western Ten Commandments are the Yamas & Niyamas. There are 5 of each. We have covered Ahimsa (non-violence), and now we move on to the second “rightful duty”. Satya is the Sanskrit word for truthfulness. Truthfulness isn’t always the easiest path or the safest, but it is the right choice. We can practice this yama by choosing to be real instead of being nice, choosing our truth over people-pleasing. It is important to check-in when you find yourself hesitating to speak your Truth… is it because you’re trying to belong? Is this desire to belong impeding your growth? “I know that in embarking on nonviolence I shall be running what might be termed a mad risk, but the victories of truth have never been won without risks,” – Mahatma Gandhi This week we invite you to participate in the following exercise from The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice by Deborah Adele: “This week observe the difference between “nice” and “real.” Notice situations where you were nice. What did this experience invoke in you? What were the results? Notice situations where you were real. What did this experience invoke in you? What were the results? From whom or what do you seek approval? Does this affect whether you act from your “niceness” or your “realness”?” This is not to say there can not be an overlap between being nice and being real, it is simply an invitation to consider! You can journal about this or just ponder. Happy practicing! JOIN US THIS WEEKEND…..

I got lots of information. You are very knowledgeable and the way you explained things made them easy to comprehend. This is no easy or simple process and I am truly grateful for having an instructor like you.” -T Nichols “Overall, I truly valued and enjoyed your class on reiki 1. I honestly did not know what to expect, but I was relieved when you used our time not just as class/lecture but opened a conversation for all of us. I think by having that conversation type class it was easier to comprehend and think of reiki in a real-world sense, and of course to hear different perspectives. During, and after the class I felt extremely affirmed that I picked the right teacher to learn from. I am extremely excited and looking forward to continuing this healing journey.” N Rubio Register on MindBody. Check it out on Facebook!
