Join Brandy & Kenny to celebrate the Winter Solstice with 108  Sun Salutations!

Friday, Dec.21st from 6:30pm – 8:00pm (approx.)

In yoga culture, the number 108 holds great significance. From the 108 Upanishads to the 108 beads on traditional mala necklaces, the number has become a symbol to count mantras with faith, love, and compassion.

Yogis have taken the number to their mats, doing 108 rounds of Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutations) as a way to give thanks and meditate. Most Vinyasa yoga classes feature at least one Surya Namaskara as a way to salute the sun, and if you’ve done them, you know that even just a few of them require concentration and endurance.

108 salutations calls for serious dedication and strength, and provides an elaborate form of meditation.

Make it a challenge, then listen to your thoughts as they go by and see what life lessons are in store for you
