Beach Yoga, KALI, Yin + LIVE Handpan Music, 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 your practice off the mat! ???? Ice Bath ???? ???? Practice of the Week at URU Yoga: Ice Bath ???? Demonstrated by Kala Bloxham & Justin Nutt ???? Discover the invigorating power of cold exposure and dive into the Ice Bath Experience at URU Airport Location every Tuesday and Thursday morning after Justin Nutt’s Pranayama & The Energetic Body Class! Class @ 7AM, Ice bath @ 8:30AM ????‍♂️❄️ Benefits of Cold Exposure: ????️ Physical Benefits: Ice baths promote muscle recovery by reducing inflammation and soreness. The cold temperature constricts blood vessels and flushes out waste products, facilitating faster healing. It also boosts metabolism and improves circulation. ???? Mental & Nervous System Benefits: The shock of cold immersion challenges the mind, encouraging mental resilience and strength. It stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, leading to a sense of relaxation, reduced stress, and improved sleep. ???? Empowerment & Meeting Edges: Ice baths teach you that you can endure and conquer challenging situations, both on and off the mat. Embrace the power within you and step out of your comfort zone. ???? Rewiring the Brain: Cold exposure triggers the release of mood-enhancing neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin. It promotes adaptability and resilience, enhancing mental clarity and focus. If you’d like to ease into cold exposure, try this gradual approach: turn your shower to cold for the last 30 seconds. Notice the sensations and observe your breath. With time, you may find yourself more open to the full ice bath experience. ⚠️ Caution for Certain Health Conditions: Individuals with heart conditions, hypertension, or a history of cold allergies should avoid ice baths. If you’re pregnant, have respiratory issues, or any medical concerns, consult your healthcare professional before trying cold exposure. Join us at URU Airport Location on Tuesday and Thursday mornings to explore the benefits of ice baths, and embrace the idea that you are capable of embracing challenges and rewiring your mind for resilience. Let’s dive into the ice together! ❄️???? With love and light, Your URU Kula JOIN US THIS WEEKEND…..

We will advise you to a future date that you can attend Register on Mindbody KALI: Kundalini Activation Light Integration w/ Carlie Hunter Sat August 5th 1-3 PM Location: URU Yoga – Airport $55 investment An Energetic Transmission and Healing Modality- Experience a level of oneness that will stay with you. KALI is a powerful energy-healing modality that activates the movement of life force energy within the body, assists us in transforming our lives and connects us to our heart. It is a deep and profound experience to enhance your physical and emotional self-awareness by tapping into your life force energy. KALI ignites the Kundalini awakening process.Kundalini awakening is an integral part of many spiritual practices and is often considered the highest form of spiritual enlightenment. In this process, we tap into an immense source of energy within and unlock our full potential. This then brings about healing, transformation, and greater understanding. It is a powerful and transformative experience that can leave us feeling more connected to ourselves, the universe, and our divine purpose. Kundalini energy is present in all humans and is often referred to as the “life force” or “sacred fire.” It is the subtle force that connects us to the universe. Through KALI, we explore our inner potential and initiate an unfolding of awareness that dissolves blockages, rebalances our chakras, and leads to higher states of consciousness and a deeper understanding of the personal and human experience. I also activate and transmit other healing light codes besides Kundalini. Including but not limited to: * Arcturian * Orion * Sirian * Pleiadian * Lyran * Lemurian * Akashic * Dragon * Elementals… This work has opened me up to a lot of 5d energies so new things come in all the time! What to Expect on the Mat You can witness profound shifts in awareness, clarity, heightened perception, increased intuition, self-empowerment, deep relaxation, somatic releases, and vivid visual journeys. Once the body deeply opens up to the energy the body will want to move with that flow. The voice, and tears sometimes flow too with this opening. Let it, without judgment. You can stop the process at any time by opening your eyes or over mentalizing You will be in recline on the floor for most of the practice. Please bring whatever you need to make you comfortable. It’s also recommended for a receiver to be well hydrated, and not have a full stomach. Register on MindBody. Register on Eventbrite!

Kirtan: Call & Response Mantra Chanting w/ Brenan & Makayah Location: URU Yoga – 9 Mile Every Thursday 7 – 8:15 pm Use your class pass, $15 drop-in, or sliding scale options available Yay! A weekly Kirtan at URU Yoga – 9 Mile!!! In this class, led by Makaylah McCleery & Brenan Woody, you will experience a taste of Bhakti Yoga. Bhakti Yoga is the path of loving devotion. Kirtan is the practice of call & response Sanskrit mantra chanting. Brenan or Makaylah will sing the chant & you are encouraged to repeat it in response! Singing is not required, but it is highly encouraged. You are always welcome to just come sit and see what it’s about before you participate. Brenan plays the hand-drum, and Makaylah plays the harmonium to support the mantras. A few other instruments will be provided, if you decide that you’d like to add to the soundscape… we encourage that you bring any instrument you’d like to add! Mantras are sacred sounds used to focus the mind on the Divine. Names of deities will be used, but this doesn’t mean that you are invoking anything outside of yourself. You are the Divine, and you are chanting to that place within YOU. We will not dive too deep into the meanings of these mantras in this class, instead- we will focus on dropping into the chanting and opening our hearts to our own unique experience. Brenan & Makaylah offer more in-depth workshops and classes to dive deeper into mythology and meaning if you are interested in learning more! There will be no Asana (physical practice) in this class. We will be seated with cushions and other supports. Dancing, standing, or lying down is also available! Just whatever you need to remain comfortable through class. We will burn incense, palo santo, or sage… if there is a student with scent sensitivity, we will forgo the burning of any scents. We will keep the lighting relatively low… but there will be plenty of light to see! ***Please note, that we will NOT be using the powerpoint slides that we have used previously at events. We’d like for this to be a more traditional, intimate, and screen-free event. We are working towards creating a song-book to share with attendees, but until then- we will just be singing simple chants from memory! ***Also, if you are unable to pay the entire $15 drop-in, we will accept donations for this class. Pay anything you are able! We just want you to show up and experience this! Venmo: @makaylahmccleery ***If you are feeling any hesitancy, we invite you to release your inhibitions and just come give it a try! You will be met with so much love, support, and patience.
