With four Pensacola-area locations, URU has made its most recent home just over the bridge in Gulf Breeze. Here, you can connect mind and body with a full schedule of yoga classes from beginner level to hot vinyasa flow. Morning Mindfulness classes take place on Sundays. URU means “spacious” in Sanskrit, but also “you are you, because that is what you are meant to be.” So go ahead, be you.
