Mother’s Day Yin Yoga + Sound bath, Rose Petal Restorative Yoga, Community Event, & 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 mantra (sacred sound). Jai Ma: Praise to the Divine Mother! Jai- triumph, victory, praise, celebration Ma- Divine Mother Energy As we approach the weekend of celebration dedicated to honoring mothers, it’s an opportune time to delve into the profound practice of chanting “Jai Ma.” Chanting this holds a unique ability to resonate with our beings on a vibrational level, connecting us to the essence of the Divine Mother and the nurturing energy that lives inside and around us. By engaging in the sacred mantra “Jai Ma,” we invite the presence of the universal motherly force into our hearts and lives. This powerful vibration of sound reverberates through our being, awakening the energy of the mother within us. It is through this chanting practice that we can tap into the boundless love and compassion that resides within, nurturing and embracing the qualities of the inner-mother. Additionally, as we chant “Jai Ma,” we send out vibrations of gratitude and reverence to Mother Earth, recognizing her as the ultimate embodiment of motherly care. Of course there is also opportunity to send that same gratitude and reverence to any and all Mother figures in your life. So, as we embrace the weekend festivities, let us unite in the practice of chanting “Jai Ma,” allowing its transformative vibrations to celebrate and invoke the nurturing energy of the mother within and around us. Sing-Along to Janet Stone’s version of “Jai Ma” Happy practicing! Jai Ma! JOIN US THIS WEEKEND…..

This is a special version of Going YINward occurring on Mother’s Day weekend. The celebration of the Mother is not limited to your birth-Mother. We are here to celebrate the nurturing Ma energy that lives within each of us, that is within the Earth, and in all things that are manifest! We will offer you a cacao ceremony & a cacao based vegan/GF dessert, an easeful yin yoga sequence with massage and energy work, and a soundbath dedicated to the Mother. Cacao is the fruit of the Cacao tree. It is fermented cacao bean paste that has the true, bold flavor profiles of what we call chocolate. There are no added anything, just pure fruit. The first evidence of cacao use dates from approximately 5,300 years ago by the Mayo-Chinchipe civilization in Ecuador. Traces of theobromine (a chemical compound in cacao) have been found in their pottery, suggesting cacao was first used in a drink. It was revered as the “Food of the Gods.” It comes out pretty bitter, but we will provide honey to sweeten to your liking! *Please consult your doctor about drinking cacao if you are taking anti-depressants or blood thinners, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have any complications with your blood pressure and heart. Yin Yoga is a series of long-held postures. Each pose is held for 5-10 minutes each. There will be props (bolsters, blocks, blankets) to support you in relaxing into each shape. We choose very simple Yin poses so that you can fully receive the massage. In Savasana, your final lying down position, all three facilitators will co-create a soundbath to honor the energy of the Mother within and around us. Providing you space to relax and receive healing sound frequencies. Register on Eventbrite!
