The number 108 has long been considered a sacred number in Hinduism and yoga. Traditionally, malas, or garlands of prayer beads, come as a string of 108 (plus one for the “guru bead,” around which the other 108 beads turn like the planets around the sun); malas are frequently used to count during meditation.
Practicing 108 Sun Salutations is reserved for special occasions like the change of the seasons. The Spring Equinox, one of two times during the year that the day and night are equal lengths, represents a time of rebirth and new beginnings, making it a great time to detoxify, cleans and reconnect with yourself.
Completing 108 Sun Salutations, can be challenging. But as you develop a rhythm, you will find a state of ease, and a sense of flow. Practicing 108 Sun Salutations is ultimately about surrendering to the process, acknowledging what arises emotionally, then letting it go. When you finish, you will feel lighter and find meaning in this ancient ritual. We hope you’ll join us!
