Did you know that Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskar,
the yogi’s salute to the sun, awakens the entire body. They move the body through its entire range of motion, linking the poses together on the wave of the breath. It is said that Surya Namaskar encapsulates the true beauty of a complete Yoga practice, striking a balance between strength and flexibility, contraction and expansion, movement and stillness.

The Significance of 108 Sun Salutations:
In the Yoga tradition, a mala is a garland, usually made up of 108 prayer beads, used to count mantra or prayer repetitions. I will use the concept of the yoga mala to lead our group through the ritual of 108 Sun Salutations. We will breathe, move, and sweat together in a full body prayer.
