108 Sun Salutations / Spring Solstice / Saturday March 21st @ 13.00

Why 108 Sun Salutations?

* To find FLUIDITY in repetitive movement without having to pay too much attention to instruction which allows us to draw inwards more
*MENTALLY you will feel more focused, disciplined, resilient, and committed to your yoga practice & self development
*PHYSICALLY you will feel stronger, more capable, more fluid and the connection to your body & mind will be much stronger
*ANAHATA (HEART) CHAKRA: The chakras are the intersections of energy lines, and there are said to be a total of 108 energy lines converging to form the heart chakra. One of them, sushumna leads to the crown chakra, and is said to be the path to Self-realization.
*DANCE: There are 108 forms of dance in the Indian traditions.

Myself and Dini Martinez will be guiding the sun salutes and keeping count as we all tune into the same rhythm. We will begin with a warmup and then dive into the salutes. The ‘class’ will end with a bit of a cool down and a restorative meditation session.

Be sure to bring some cosy clothes to relax and feel warm in. Once we start moving the heat will build up. Keep in mind that we will be in a glass structure so nature is in view all around us. As is the colour GREEN, the heart chakra’s colour, inviting in all that LOVE for 2015.

1 = Higher Truth
0 = emptiness or completeness in spiritual practice,
8 = infinity or eternity
