 Here are our favorite Monday night Mantras. enjoy!

There is nothing like a mantra at the end of a Monday night.  A mantra is a word or sound repeated to aid concentration in meditation. You can also repeat a phrase several times before bed to give you a sense of calm and relaxation. Here are a few mantras that we enjoy:

  • I let go of perfection in life and celebrate everything life is.
  • Today, I am thankful.
  • I feel peace, I feel calm, I feel ease.

What mantras do you use in your life?

Welcome to UB SOUL. A place for us to share with our UB community a collection of goods that enrich our lives & touch our souls.

 Here are 6 telling signs you are a UB yogi. enjoy!

1. There is always a yoga mat in your car. Even if it the heat and sun might accidentally melt your Jade, you are at UBY so often it's easier to leave it as the passenger in the front seat than forget it at home. 

2. You prefer leggings over normal clothes and chances are you have said "I wish I could wear yoga clothes all day every day" or "I forget how to get dressed in anything BUT yoga clothes"

3. You walk around barefoot and your feet are usually filthy however your toes are freshly painted because you just visited our favorite nail spa B Polished.

4. You enjoy sweating in a room full of people and you've survived many sweaty partner poses with a huge smile on your face.

5. You get excited when the weather warms up because the garage door is open and fresh air is always amazing after a 90 degree sweaty yoga room.

6. Most importantly everywhere you go, you create a community. You are a glass half full thinker. You choose to shift your vision. You keep integrity in your poses and your life. You are an extension of UBY with the joy you carry for your practice, the relationships you have made and the drive you have to show up and sweat.

YOU, UBY YOGIS,  ENRICH OUR LIVES AND TOUCH OUR SOULS. THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY!!!

 Here is our favorite life enriching practice: CELEBRATION!!

cel·e·brate / verb - publicly acknowledge (a significant or happy day or event) with a social gathering or enjoyable activity.

The practice of celebrating a triumph is one we are taking seriously this week (or maybe it's playfully). It is our 5th birthday and the completion of 40 Days to Personal Revolution.

We love taking the time to appreciate the victories in our life because it's easy for life to speed by and hard work to be ignored. We choose the act of celebration as a way of acknowledging YOU, our community, for continuing to show up, get sweaty, and do the work with hearts full of joy. Through celebration we are able to find gratitude for the past and present plus excitement for the future.

We are ready to spend this week celebrating F I V E Y E A R S and Y O U!

Thoughts on Equanimity

What I know for sure is that I am not in charge. I have spent a lot of time in my life trying to predict outcomes, plan contingencies, be prepared.  Yet things happen that are unexpected.  Some events are happy and some sad. I have come to accept that I don't control life, can't predict it, and can't control it.  

Now I focus on taking in stride what comes my way. I have thus become better at the art of equanimity - I can meet life where life meets me without drama.  What follows from this is more joy in my life, less stress.  Now when something unexpected comes up - on my mat or in my life - I welcome it and look for the fun, joy, and good that can result.

-Gita


GETTING TO KNOW GITA

1. I love UBY because of our community.  Students and teachers are interesting, energetic, supportive, friendly, smart, and fun to talk to. 

2. My favorite pose is Child's pose.  I love the release and feeling of letting go.

3. My afternoon snack is a decaf frappuccino and an apple.

4. I don't have just one favorite quote.  My oldest daughter Olivia made me a "Box of Joy" for my birthday which has 365 inspiring quotes.  I will share one that resonates with me today:" Life is like a camera.  Focus on what is important and capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't work out just take another shot".

5.  Gemini

6.  Morning routine:  Get up early (4:30),  plug in ear buds and go for a 4 mile jog while listening to NPR.

7. I am reading The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah.

Welcome to UB SOUL. A place for us to share with our UB community a collection of goods that enrich our lives & touch our souls.

Here is how yoga can cross-train you for an adventure of a lifetime!

Meet UBY student Dan Schroeter. He recently took a 4 day trek to Machu Piccu in the Peruvian Andes with his son. Yoga was a huge part in cross-training for this life changing trip, check out why!

UBY: Tell us briefly about your trip. Where you went, how long your hike was, how many hours you hiked a day....

DS: My son, Kellen, recently graduated from college and wanted to take me on an adventure. A father/son trip. We picked a 4-Day trek to Machu Picchu in the Peruvian Andes. It was an always amazing, often grueling, experience. We hiked up to 10 miles a day - the longest day was 12 hours - on some of the most rocky, rugged terrain I've ever experienced. Twice we ascended to 14,000 feet. Much of the trail is original stones/steps put in place by the Inca people. An unbelievable feat of engineering.

UBY: How did you prepare, physically, for this trip?

DS: I had about 6 months to get ready. The highest I had ever climbed was about 7,000 feet in Boulder, CO. and that had been a bit of a struggle. I knew I had to do some prep. The key, for me, was yoga. Not only preparing my body for the exertion but also using the breathing techniques I've been learning to help me deal with the lower oxygen levels at high altitude. Of course, the ability to focus/persevere when things got tough. Yoga also helped me with weight loss leading up to the trip. I knew I would have to carry 15-20 pounds of gear in my pack so I decided to lose 25 pounds before the trip. The reduced weight made all the difference. In addition, I started doing hikes around Fort Wayne with a full backpack. What I discovered, is that hiking 4-5 miles at 800 feet of elevation relative to Sea Level in Fort Wayne is nowhere near what it's like to hike 5 miles in the Andes at 10-14,000 feet!

UBY: How big of a roll was yoga in your training?

DS: For me yoga, in addition to a major change in my dietary intake, was the center of what I did to prepare. Without yoga I don't think I could have finished the trail. It was that difficult. Urban Body's February Fit program came at the perfect time. Since our trip was the first week of March I was able to accelerate my training leading up to our scheduled departure. I went from 3 days of yoga a week to about 5 days per week.

UBY: From the beginning of your yoga journey to now, after your huge accomplishment, how do you feel?

DS: I've never had a prouder personal (physical) accomplishment. I started yoga about a year and a half ago. Originally, I wasn't interested in it from a fitness perspective. I did it to spend more time with my family - something for all of us to do together. Having used yoga to prepare for this epic journey, I'm in the best shape I've been in over the last 25 years. I'm excited to maintain my progress and see where else yoga takes me.

UBY: From your growth through yoga and this hike, what is possible for you now, both on and off of your mat?

DS: Almost anything. Look, I won't be climbing Everest. It's not in my wheelhouse. Not on my bucket list but, I feel like I can accomplish most things. On the mat and off. I really appreciate the positive attitude from the people at Urban Body. From Jennifer and John to Carly and Jonathon and Cordelia. They've pushed me to do things I've never done before. A year ago I couldn't do a wheel. I wouldn't have attempted it. Now I can. A year ago I couldn't Crow. A Headstand in a crowded room? No way. But now I try those things. I do those things. I'm sure I can do more.

UBY: Anything else you wish to share with people who may be training for amazing adventure or even just starting the adventure of yoga?

DS: I've learned a lot over the last year and a half. And I've been inspired by so many people in my life. Mostly, though, by my son - who's not afraid to try anything. Or go anywhere. And take me along for the ride. And my daughter, Mackie, who motivated her couch surfing mom and dad to try yoga in the first place. And by the people in the room with me at Urban Body — instructors and classmates. You don't have to be going on the journey of lifetime to benefit from practicing yoga. There's a new journey every day in class.

Thank you for sharing your story with us, Dan. We are proud of you and your commitment to making each day a journey!!

Welcome to UB SOUL. A place for us to share with our UB community a collection of goods that enrich our lives & touch our souls.

 Here is our favorite life/sleep enriching yoga pose. enjoy!

Legs-Up-The-Wall

It's simple, relaxing and easy to do anywhere!

Performing quiet, restorative poses, like this one, can help calm your body and mind relieving stress and anxiety. When your legs are stretched up the wall and are higher than your heart, gravity can help the circulation of both blood and lymphatic fluid.

Try it for 5-20 minutes, before bed. Let your breath flow naturally in and out through your nose. Relax into your space. When you finish roll to your right side and slowly come up to seated. You are now ready for a full night's rest!

Check back next Monday for something awesome!!

Welcome to our newest series, UB SOUL. A place for us to share with our UB community a collection of goods that enrich our lives & touch our souls.

Here is our Signature scent! Enjoy!

At UBY we burn Nag Champa Incense prior to every class. We can't imagine the studio with out it. It's grounded earthy smell gives us a strong sense of presence in our practice and teaching.

We order our Nag Champa via Amazon. We have tried both the cones and the sticks and we prefer the sticks. There is something about the burning wood that give the incense an extra delicious hint.

 

Your nose is connected to the memory center of your brain. That's why smells can trigger powerful memories. Order a box of Nag Champa to burn in your home. Light it 15 minutes prior to a home practice or YOW video, the smell will transport you to UBY and give you a strong sense of presence.

See you next week for UB SOUL our favorite place to share with you!

Thoughts on 'Being Ready NOW'

What I know for sure is that I am ready now!

By nature I am an analyzer. I love to think, rethink and sometime over think everything that I do. I plan, schedule, contemplate and question each decision I make. Once the decision is made I judge and analyze that decision to be sure that it was the right one – the perfect one. I used to think that this method was the best way to make sure that I was prepared and "right".  I thought by being "right" I would be find joy. Once I began taking yoga and eventually dove deeper into meditation and self-reflection I discovered that this way of doing things not only stole my joy, it also caused me a significant amount of stress and frustration. I found myself missing out on things all around me because I was planning and questioning the right way to do it. I told myself I was not ready for things like connection, growth, love and friendship because I hadn't sufficiently considered all options of getting those things. This way of living left me stuck and unable to move forward in the way I wanted too.  

One day in a yoga the theme was "You are ready NOW!" The instructor didn't say you will be ready in 6 weeks once you complete that spreadsheet or you will be ready in 2 days once you get in one more yoga practice - she said, very plainly, you are ready NOW! In that moment it hit me, "What are you waiting for, Destiny??" 

Perfection is not the key to my happiness, getting it right all the time will not bring me joy. Being genuine, present and available is what will give me access to my bliss. I still feel that need to plan and analyze, however I have found freedom in knowing that I can shift my vision, take a deep breath in – huge sigh out and take on whatever comes my way because I am ready NOW - exactly as I am and exactly as I am not.

-Destiny

Thoughts on Letting Go

What I know for sure is that my life got a lot happier when I decided to work on letting go.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a work in process, I'm still letting go, and I’m pretty sure that I will always be in this process.  I was very sick for quite awhile and during that time my perspective shifted. I began to realize I was holding on to things I needed to let go of.  Things that seemed important to me, began to look unimportant. The things that really were important to me, began to call my name. My husband always reminds me that I shouldn’t worry about the things that I can’t do anything about, I should only work on changing what I can. Smart huh?

Letting go of the idea that everything has to be perfect and that I have to control the uncontrollable has allowed me to step into new opportunities that I would and did say no to before. I’m now in school for massage, which I love!  I’m teaching yoga which opened up a door for me to serve the heros in our community by creating a free yoga class for all Firefighters, Police Officers and Veterans. Serving them fills my heart with joy. I'm making connections with incredible people and I’m loving every minute of it!

The process of letting go has given me freedom and now I am able to focus on what I truly care about.
