The Winter Solstice is the shortest day/longest night of the year. Celebrations of the end of the long darkness take place all over the world so let's come together to welcome the return of the light by performing 108 Sun Salutations!

Why 108 Salutations?

  • The number 108 is sacred and significant in many ancient texts
  • It appears repeatedly in the natural world from astronomy to mathematics
  • The distance between the sun and the earth is roughly 108 times the sun's diameter
  • It is believed that the fire (internal heat) that you build during this practice is cleansing, detoxifying, and gets you more in touch with yourself
  • There are many benefits to practicing 108 Sun Salutations

Additional Information:

  • We will take breaks throughout the evening
  • Snacks will be available
  • Modifications to the standard sun salutation (including a seated version) will be demonstrated
  • This class will be appropriate for all levels

It's okay if you can't complete all 108 Sun Salutations. It's all about the intent and having a positive attitude!
