Our 8th annual fundraiser at The Yoga Sanctuary is open to all yogis and yoginis to start the New Year right – with 108 Sun Salutations.

Join Karen for this brilliant meditative practice that challenges both the body and the mind.
108 has many sacred connotations in various cultures and philosophies. Renowned mathematicians of Vedic culture viewed 108 as a number of the wholeness of existence. This number also connects the Sun, Moon, and Earth; the average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters. Such phenomena have given rise to many examples of ritual significance.
According to yogic tradition, there are 108 pithas, or sacred sites, throughout India. And there are also 108 Upanishads and 108 marma points, or sacred places of the body.
Often practiced welcoming the seasons, we will be offering this celebratory event to welcome 2019!
