Summer Solstice 108 Sun Salutations Class
June 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Many remarkable health benefits are attributed to this class. Some have called it a cleanse; Physical, Spiritual and/or Mental. It is a test of strength true, but more of what you think you are capable of doing. Finding out that you are stronger than you think. Finding out that it is your mind that holds you back more than anything else. Sometimes very deep and personal breakthroughs happen in this class. This is why I invite you to join me at Mistress Brewing Company on June 21st from 6-8 p.m. for a summer celebration of 108 Sun Salutations!
In yoga culture, the number 108 is considered a sacred number. Astronomically, the sun and the moon each measure 108 times their respective diameters to the earth. There are also 108 beads in a mala, a necklace similar to a rosary from Catholicism. The malas can be used to chant mantras as part of a meditation practice.
Yogis can perform 108 sun salutations as a ritual practice to help inspire discipline, devotion, commitment, and focus.
In our upcoming Summer Solstice, we’ll complete a mandala flow of 108 variations on the basic Sun Salutation. Mandala translates to “circular,” which means we’ll face north, south, east, and west for 27 sets of a flow before facing the next direction.
The mandala represents the infinite nature of the universe. Just as we celebrate the middle of the year or the beginning of the summer, we must move also knowing that the universe is infinite and our life continues on despite the symbolic starts and stops of the seasons.
Come join me on Friday, June 21st to celebrate midsummer. You’ll move and reflect on the intentions you’ve set for your year and create new ones for the coming months. We’ll celebrate the yin quality of the season, at the same time that we cool down from the heat.
Meditation, (Shivasana) will end the class with more messages meant just for you. Put this on your calendar for a wonderful gift to yourself. Namaste, Deb
