Beginners Yoga, Chakra Journey, Bhakti Bliss, 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 a breath practice, pranayama. Sitali Breath (Cooling Breath) Things are starting to warm up here in Florida! Energy is beginning to move a little quicker as we transition into Spring time. Sitali breath is an amazing way to literally keep cool and also calm your nervous system. This is also an amazing breath to visit when you’re feeling angry. A non-exhaustive list of benefits include: Bile reduction (reducing the amount of bile waste that causes heartburn), reduces anxiety and stress, increased concentration, controls hunger and quenches thirst, great for calming and cooling pregnant moms, and reduces high blood pressure. How To: Curl your tongue in the shape of a taco. Inhale through your taco tongue and fill your belly and chest. At the top of the breath, retract your tongue, close your lips, and exhale through the nose. Try for 3-5 minutes at first, and you can add time as your practice deepens. Video Tutorial Here *Please note that curling your tongue is NOT physically accessible for everyone due to genetics… we will be releasing another pranayama practice soon that has similar benefits available without having to curl your tongue!

Bhakti Bliss Chanting Night w/ Makaylah Thursday Date: 3/16/2023 From: 7:00 – 9:00 pm URU 9 Mile Sliding scale investment $5+ In Yoga, there are many paths that all lead to the same goal– Union with the Divine or Union with all that is. Bhakti yoga is the path of loving devotion. Bhakti can look like dancing, singing, meditating, cooking, writing poetry, and so many other things… The best part is that you can make just about anything you do a Bhakti yoga practice by simply doing what you do with complete devotion to the Divine within all things. We will be co-creating space to do just this. Through chanting sacred songs with the accompaniment of the harmonium and hand-drum we will offer joyous praise! This is open to the regular practitioner or the complete beginner. There will be an informational powerpoint on each chant that we sing, so if you have no prior knowledge on chanting, have no fear! No participation is required– you are always welcome to sit and bask in the sounds around you. Singing along and dancing is encouraged! If you have any instruments that you would like to bring to add to the offering, please feel free to bring them! Please know that when we chant the many names of the Divine, we are never chanting to anything outside of ourselves. We are chanting to what already lies within. Yogic mythology gives us wonderful stories and characters that support us in recognizing our true nature. We look forward to chanting with you! Register on MindBody. Register on Eventbrite!
