This week we invite you to explore your practice on and off the mat! ???? Saucha (Purity) ???? ???? Practice of the Week at URU Yoga: Saucha (Purity) ???? “Saucha invites us to purify our bodies, thoughts, and words.” – Deborah Adele The first Niyama: Saucha, means Purity. This principle encourages us to engage in the transformative process of cleansing and purifying, not only on a physical level but also within our thoughts and words. Deborah Adele’s wisdom reminds us that our journey towards purity is a personal one. Just as no two individuals are identical, the steps we take to cleanse and purify will manifest uniquely for each of us. Saucha is a practice of respect for our own individuality. On a physical level, Saucha encourages us to create environments of order and cleanliness. This can mean tidying our homes, organizing our workspaces, or even decluttering our cars. Furthermore, it extends to our dietary choices – nurturing our bodies with fresh, whole foods that nourish us from within. Yet, Saucha doesn’t stop at the physical realm. It delves into the mental landscape as well. To purify our thoughts involves a conscious effort to reprogram negativity. As we become more aware of our mental patterns, we can actively shift our thinking towards positivity and self-compassion. Saucha also offers us the gift of radical presence. In a world where distractions and scattering thoughts abound, this practice invites us to be fully present in each moment. By doing so, we align with the essence of purity, as we’re not fragmented by our surroundings but anchored in the here and now. As you embark on this journey of Saucha, let its essence resonate with you in your own way. Whether it’s through physical cleaning, dietary adjustments, mental reprogramming, or radical presence, let the principle of purity guide your path toward a more vibrant and aligned life.

Kirtan: Call & Response Mantra Chanting w/ Brenan & Makayah Location: URU Yoga – 9 Mile Most Thursday’s 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.
