The Summer Solstice in Yoga

June 20, 2020 is the summer solstice.  This is the day with the most hours of sunlight for the year.  It’s the day that days stop getting longer and start getting shorter.  In fact, “solstice” literally means “sun standing still”.  In yoga the day is dedicated to receiving and contemplating all of the blessings in our lives.  It marks moving from the quiet dark of winter into the vibrant light of summer. The traditional way to celebrate the solstice is by doing 108 sun salutations.

The number 108 has significance in many ways to yogis.  For example:

There are 108 Upanishads and 108 Tantras

There are 108 Yoga Sutras

The distance from the earth to the moon is 108 times the diameter of the moon

The distance from the earth to the sun is 108 times the diameter of the sun

In Ayurveda there are 108 sacred points on the body

And many more…

Join Michael for this Summer Solstice class of 108 sun salutations. This class will take about 2 hours to complete (I think…).  It will offer you an opportunity to reach and maybe stretch your limits. It will create inner heat.  And hopefully you’ll be able to find joy in a celebration of the life giving sun.

*This class is a video recording. The class will be available all day but you must register before 9am to access.
