Awakening Shakti, Ecstatic Dance, Beach Yoga, Aerial Silks, 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 Yama (Restraints in Sanskrit). Brahmacharya (Non-excess) ???? Practice of the Week: Brahmacharya ???? This week, we delve into the yogic principle of Brahmacharya, one of the Yamas, which guides us towards harmonious and conscious relationships with ourselves and others. Brahmacharya invites us to cultivate moderation, balance, and mindful energy management in all aspects of our lives. It encourages us to use our vital life force with awareness, aligning our actions, thoughts, and desires in ways that support our overall well-being and spiritual growth. Here are some key reflections and practices to explore Brahmacharya in your life: 1️⃣ Self-Inquiry: Reflect on your energy expenditure. Are there areas in your life where you may be exerting excessive energy or engaging in behaviors that drain your vital life force? How can you cultivate moderation and balance to restore harmony? 2️⃣ Mindful Consumption: Observe your habits of consumption, including food, media, and relationships. Are you nourishing yourself with what truly supports your well-being? Practice conscious choices that promote vitality and avoid excesses that may deplete your energy. 3️⃣ Sacred Pause: Incorporate moments of stillness and silence into your daily routine. By creating space for inner reflection, you can consciously direct your energy towards intentions that align with your higher self. 4️⃣ Cultivate Inner Awareness: Develop a daily meditation or mindfulness practice to deepen your understanding of your own desires, impulses, and patterns of behavior. By cultivating self-awareness, you can make conscious choices in alignment with your values and higher purpose. Remember, Brahmacharya is a personal exploration, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Embrace this practice with curiosity, compassion, and a willingness to adapt it to your unique journey. Wishing you a week filled with mindful energy management and an enhanced sense of balance and harmony. Happy practicing! JOIN US THIS WEEKEND…..
