Join us for a New Year's tradition! The practice of 108 Sun Salutations is a special experience shared by yogis all over the world. The number 108 has many important and symbolic meanings ranging across diverse disciplines, from science and mathematics to religions and spiritual practices. A favorite significance held by many is that the distance of Earth from the Sun is about 108 times the diameter of the Sun. How cool is that?! 108 holds a sacred significance in yoga, Hinduism and Buddhism. According to yogic tradition, there are 108 pithas, or sacred sites, throughout India. Likewise, there are 108 marmas, or sacred places, in the body. According to Ayurveda, there are 108 pressure points in the body, where consciousness and flesh intersect to give life to the living being. Malas usually consist of 108 prayer beads, plus one 'guru' bead. And in Japan at the end of the year, a bell is chimed 108 times in Buddhist temples to finish the old year and welcome the new one. Each ring represents one of 108 earthly temptations (Bonnō) a person must overcome to achieve nirvana. This practice is exactly what it says. 108 Sun Salutations, broken down into twelve sets of nine, with short meditations, pranayama (breathing exercises) and resting/ restorative poses offered between the sets. Many yogis feel that this is a life changing experience. It will stretch your mind and challenge your practice, and it is a powerful way to ring in those New Year intentions!
