On Thursday, December 21st, we will gather at Yoga Life Studio on the darkest night of the year with the light in our hearts to set our intentions for what is to come. In eastern philosophy the number 108 is considered a number that represents a complete cycle and is the ultimate end of an event or phenomenon. So, for this reason it is common to do 108 rounds of something meaningful to you on auspicious occasions.
As a community, we will practice 108 Sun Salutations to honor this powerful ritual and tradition. We practice this repetition with focus and intention. Just as any repetitive task in life can lead us to boredom and restlessness, we can learn how to come back to our intention and physically work mindfully and smarter, rather than harder, which are all great lessons for ourselves as we move into a new year. We will finish with a brief meditation letting the lessons we learn on our mat this day resonate within us.
You don't have to practice all 108 Sun Salutations, your presence is enough. All- Levels welcome :)
