Winter Solstice Celebration: 108 Sun Salutations

Join us at EYS to celebrate the winter solstice with a personal challenge - 108 sun salutations

108 is an auspicious number running through many traditions, religions and practices of the Eastern world.  It is a powerful number which repeatedly appears in a variety of sacred forms. There are 108 beads on a mala and a Catholic rosary, 108 illustrations on Buddha's footprint and in Islam the number 108 refers to name just a few.

The winter solstice is the perfect time to let go, shed what not longer serves us and to start setting intentions as the days starts growing longer and move towards a new year. By practicing 108 sun salutations we transform our physical practice in to a moving meditation and challenge physical fatigue and the restlessness of the mind. We strengthen body, mind and soul. The power of practicing this ritual in a group environment heightens the energy and shared sense of intention. 

Don't be put off by the high number,  as always, you can make modifications to allow ease in to your practice. The intentions is where the energy grows from.

Class is by donation on this evening.
