Healthy Shoulders With Kelly Haas

with Kelly Haas at URU Yoga - Gulf Breeze
Tuesday, December 13 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

URU Gulf Breeze
December 13th
4:30pm- 6pm
 
Healthy Shoulders -
Our shoulders and neck are parts of the body where many hold great tension and emotional stress. Also, many of us are hunched at computers, or on devices for many hours a day. These imbalances greatly impact the functionality of our upper spine, our posture, and create restrictions in our chest, which can negatively impact our breathing.

In this workshop class, we will practice clear shoulder alignment. We'll explore how the arms are the gateway to the upper spine, and how to gain mobility in the upper spine and strength in the neck.

Bhakti Bliss Chanting Night

with Makaylah McCleery at URU Yoga - 9 Mile
Thursday, December 15 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Bhakti Bliss Chanting Night

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.

We will open the body with very gentle movement.
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!

Facilitated by Makaylah McCleery and Brenan Woody
Donation based offering
Suggested donation $10, but any donation or no donation at all is accepted!

Intention Mapping with Kerry

with Kerry Whiteley at URU Yoga - Gulf Breeze
Saturday, December 31 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Intention Mapping with Kerry
Saturday, Dec 31
11am-1pm
$25
Max 10 people/Min 5
*please register via Mindbody by 12/29
What do you want? Where are you going? How are you going to get there?
What roadblocks & detours may you encounter on the way?
We will explore these questions and many more in this workshop!
What is Intention Mapping?
Intention mapping is a tool to help you gain clarity on what you want, why, and actions to move in that direction. It also helps get clear on what has gotten in the way in the past, what may get in the way in the future and how to address those roadblocks head on as well as what to do when we encounter a detour.
In addition, through this type of mapping, what you want doesn’t end in one year, in fact, with this practice, this year’s intention continues to grow even as years pass and new intentions are created. In this way, we come closer to discovering our dharma.
How is this different than intentions alone, creating a word, or new year resolutions?
Intention mapping is different than an intention alone because it breaks down the why and how. Creating a word is powerful but with intention mapping, we take that word and expand on it for further clarity and accountability. Resolutions are typically actions only. With intention mapping we scope out and then scope in to come up with word, intention and actions.
Step 1:
Reflection on 2022
Step 2:
Exploring intentions for 2023
Step 3:
Actions that move toward and away
Step 4:
Mapping your destination
Step 5:
Roadblocks and detours
Steph 6:
Ways to fill our tank
