Celebrate the change of the seasons and sweat with Cass and Caitlin as we ALL flow through 108 Sun Salutes! Yes, we are doing them with you! We’ve put a twist on this ancient tradition, we thought 7 Restorative Postures to awaken the 7 Chakras would feel incredible after 108 Sun Salutes. The last posture will be Savasana and students will receive a Reiki Energy Adjustment.
After class, from 3:30-4:00pm, Hang out for a Sugar Beet Social! Enjoy fresh squeezed juice & vegan cookies from our local friends, Sugar Beet Food Co-op. Cass will have some fun astrology books for students to look through as we snack and chat.
Details about 108 Sun Salutes:
How does it work?
The 108 Sun Salutes are broken up into 9 groups of 12 Sun Salutations. After each group of 12, we take a break in Mountain Pose for 5 breaths. This results in 8 rest breaks during the 108.
How do we keep track?
We use 9 candles to keep track of the Sun Salutes. At the end of each group of 12 Sun Salutations we light a candle.
Can anyone do 108 Sun Salutations?
Anyone that can comfortably do a regular Sun Salute will be able to do the 108 Sun Salute Celebration. It’s a fact that most people that try it for the first time are surprised at how easy it was to complete the 108 Sun Salutes and how quickly it went.
Why is it easier than you’d expect?
1. You do not hold Down Dog for 5 breaths as in a traditional Sun Salute.
2. The body is in continuous motion, allowing it to be a moving meditation.
3. The breath is everything. Everyone is breathing together. The sound of the breath and the synchronized movement will give you energy and enthusiasm to complete the 108 Sun Salutes.
