Yin Yoga with Live Handpan music, Singing Bowl Meditation, Self Defense, Reiki 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 on and off the mat! ???? Utkata Konasana (Goddess Pose) ???? Goddess Pose, also known as Utkata Konasana, invites you to embody the fierce and strong energy of the goddess within you. This powerful pose strengthens your legs, opens your hips, and cultivates a sense of groundedness. Let’s explore how to step into the goddess energy! Getting into the Pose: 1️⃣ Begin standing with your feet wider than hip-width apart, toes pointing slightly outward. 2️⃣ Bend your knees deeply, ensuring they track in line with your toes. 3️⃣ Sink your hips down, bringing your thighs parallel to the ground. 4️⃣ Lengthen your tailbone downward and engage your core. 5️⃣ Lift your arms out to the sides at shoulder height, bend the elbows, palms face forward… it’s as if you could slide between two walls. Benefits of Goddess Pose: ???? Strengthens: This pose strengthens and tones your leg muscles, including the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes. ???? Opens Hips: Goddess Pose stretches and opens the hips, promoting flexibility and relieving tension in the hip area. ???? Empowers: Embodying the fierce goddess energy, this pose helps cultivate confidence, inner strength, and a sense of empowerment. Common Challenges: ???? Knee Alignment: Maintain proper alignment by ensuring your knees track in line with your toes. If your knees tend to collapse inward, gently press them outward. ???? Balance and Stability: Finding balance in a deep squat can be challenging. If needed, widen your stance or use a blanket under your heels for support. Embodying Fierce Goddess Energy: As you sink into Goddess Pose, tap into your inner goddess energy. Feel the strength, power, and grace within you. Embrace the qualities of a goddess, such as confidence, fearlessness, and nurturing energy. Let this pose serve as a reminder of your own divine nature and the incredible strength you hold within. Take time this week to practice Goddess Pose, honoring the goddess energy that resides within you on and off the mat. Embrace the challenges, celebrate your strength, and embody the fierce and empowering essence of the goddess. We can’t wait to see you shine on the mat!

Bhakti Bliss Chanting Night w/ Brenan & Makaylah Location: URU Yoga – 9 Mile Thurs 7/20/2023 7-9 PM Donation Based Investment 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 anything you do a Bhakti yoga practice by simply doing what you do with complete devotion to the Divine. We will be co-creating space to do just this. Then through chanting sacred songs with the accompaniment of the harmonium and hand-drum we will offer joyous praise to the Divine. This is open to the regular practitioner or the complete beginner. 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! Otherwise– bring a yoga mat, comfy clothes to move in, water, a journal, a writing utensil, and most importantly an open mind! Register on Eventbrite! Register on Mindbody.
