To celebrate Summer Solstice (when the Sun’s track across the Australian sky reaches its highest point. It is the day that has the most daylight hours of any in the year) join the 108 Sun Salutation Challenge.
The Challenge will consist of 2 separate sessions:
1st session will take place one month in advance and will be focusing on technique, alignment and different modifications of the Sun Salute, to help prevent any injuries and build confidence. We will also delve deeper into the meaning of each pose of the Sun Salute.
2nd session will consist of practicing 108 Sun Salutations.
*students who attended our previous Sun Salutations challenge are not required to attend the preparation

108 is the number of names for Buddha.
108 is the number of beads on a Catholic rosary.
108 is the number of beads on a Tibetan “mala” (prayer beads, analogous to a rosary).
108 is twice the number “54”, which is the number of sounds in Sanskrit (sacred Indian language). 108 is six times the number “18”, which is a Jewish good luck number.
108 is twelve times the number 9, which is the number of vinyasas (movements linked to breath) in a Sun Salutation
