108 Salutations to the Sun
Although I grew up in Chicago, living in Florida for 30 years sort of halted the seasonal changes most other parts of the world experience. Fall meant the temperature dropped to 80 and in winter we might get a freeze or two, but 75 is the average, and the Gulf of Mexico is still warm and inviting. Hence the tourists.
On December 22, we enter Winter Solstice, when the days start to get longer and the light returns. In celebration of this shift, the practice of 108 sun salutations allows us to usher in the changing light and ignite the fires on which we've lowered the flames. We will practice one salutation (see the video below for a demo if you're not familiar with Surya Namaskar A) in sets of 20 with a 5 minute rest in between. The practice will leave you invigorated and stretched, opening pathways for the light to enter.
After all, the sun shines everywhere, from coast to coast, border to border, heart to heart.
I hope you'll join me in this amazing class!
