Quantum Meditation, Usui Reiki, Open Heart Pride, Sweet Moon Lodge and so much 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 your practice off the mat! ???????? Outdoor Yoga ???????? As we celebrate the vibrant energy of the summer solstice, let’s take our practice outdoors and embrace the beauty of nature! ???????? Outdoor Yoga is all about feeling the sun on your skin, using nature’s props, and embracing the warmth and sweat that comes with practicing under the open sky. Here are some incredible benefits of practicing yoga outside: ???? Connection with Nature: Immerse yourself in the natural elements, feel the gentle breeze, and hear the soothing sounds of birds chirping. Connecting with nature enhances your overall sense of well-being and adds a deeper level of tranquility to your practice. ???? Vitamin D Boost: Soak up the sun’s nourishing rays and receive a natural dose of vitamin D, which is essential for maintaining healthy bones, boosting your immune system, and elevating your mood. ???? Grounding and Earth Connection: Practice on the earth itself, feeling the support and stability that the ground provides. This connection to the earth enhances your grounding and helps you find balance in both your physical and energetic body. ???? Expansion and Openness: Practicing outside offers a sense of spaciousness and freedom as you move through your poses. Embrace the vastness of the sky above you and let it inspire a sense of expansion in your body, mind, and spirit. ???? Mind-Body-Spirit Alignment: Align your practice with the rhythms of nature and tap into the harmonious flow of the seasons. The summer solstice is a powerful time to cultivate inner balance and harmony, aligning your entire being with the abundant and vibrant energy of the sun. So leave your mat at home, find a serene outdoor space, and let the sun and nature be your guide. Feel the warmth, the connection, and the vitality that practicing yoga outside brings.

Swan Michelle Sound Bath Testimonial: “One of my most cherished offerings is Sound Bath. I’ve been doing them in Swan River Yoga New Orleans, and around the world, since 2012. I value them as they are inward, accessible collectively, and get us to enjoy imbibing in the set of conscious listening, receiving, and changing our consciousness, ahead of time. Pure vibrational sound frequency is energy, and energy can change matter. Sound, as a therapy, will assist in unwinding the parasympathetic nervous system, where we often addict ourselves to habitually living under the hormones of stress and incoherence. The parasympathetic nervous system can better harmonize with the sympathetic nervous system in states of presence and stillness, where we lessen the gap between us and our divine nature into true heart coherence. This lends us to embody the reciprocal play of being both calm and alert, as instruments of energized divinity. Sound Bath’s are also art. It is a creative and uplifting means of meditating and getting into space, where potentiality resides. Having been surrounded by music most of my life, I consider music to be a path of of healing and re-acclimating back to vibrant health and joy. I’ve seen this in thousands of others. They come back to themselves, at ease, in wholeness, not as fatigued or stressed, yet radiant in their True nature after a Sound Bath. Families, all variances of able bodied and age come, which brings a true cast collective together. I deeply respect going IN with these far OUT sounds in the community, connecting and inter-connecting.” Swan Michelle About Swan MIchelle. www.swanmichelle.com www.swanriveryoga.com Swan Michelle has been teaching yoga full time since the year 1998 as one of the first handful of yoga teachers in New Orleans.
