About the Event
What is a Sun Salutation? The Sun Salutation, or Surya Namaskara (SOOR-yuh nah-muh-SKAR-uh), is a series of poses that connect with the breath. Sun Salutations help to build heat in the body and are often used as warm-up sequences for a yoga practice.
Why 108? 108 is said to be a sacred number in yoga for thousands of years. You will usually see Mala beads with 108 beads to help aid in mediation and/or keeping count of mantras while meditating.
Do I have to complete all 108? No. We chose 108 Sun Salutations as a challenge to our yogis that want to push themselves in their practice and for charity. But don't worry, we invite anyone to practice this with us and work toward this goal throughout the entire month, in or out of class. If you don't get through all 108 during the event, keep track and let us know when you do! Everyone is at different levels of their practice so we want you to work toward that goal at your own pace throughout the month.
What's the charity? Our selected charity will be the Alzheimer's Association. A few months ago our Instagram followers voted for this charity and we are happy to serve this cause because it has affected us in our personal lives and is close to our hearts. We will also have sponsor sheets if anyone would like to raise additional money toward the charity or have people sponsor you for completing this challenge.
We will begin with a warm up and then move at our own pace throughout the challenge, keeping track of our own sun salutations. When you have completed your Sun Sals or have finished your personal set goal, light refreshments will be served.
