Summer Solstice Class
The summer solstice, coming up on June 21, is the day of the year with the longest amount of daylight. It's the transition between the short days of winter and darkness to the long days of summer and sunlight. Much of our practice in yoga revolves around the sun, including of course, sun salutations. We invite you to join us at Aluma as we honor the sun on this day during our 7:00pm class. Aluma instructor, Susan Selckman, will lead you through 108 sun salutations, allowing you to take in the powerful, fiery energy of the sun. Why 108? This is a very significant number in yoga for many reasons:
1 = God or a Higher Truth, 0 = Emptiness, 8 = Infinity or Eternity
It is said there are 108 energy lines that converge to form our heart chakra.
A mala necklace is an Eastern rosary used for mantras, chanting, and prayer – it has 108 beads.
There are 108 names for the revered Hindu God, Shiva.
