COMING UP ON THE CALENDAR @ EXPAND
WINTER SOLSTICE YOGA MALA: With Micaela Cooley on Cello: December 15th @ 4pm: $20
The Winter Solstice is upon us. Come celebrate the longest night of the year and the gradual return to longer daylight hours by moving through 108 Sun Salutations while listening to the amazing sounds of Micaela Cooley on cello.
The number 108 has special significance in many cultures. One reason may be that this number connects the sun, moon and earth because the average distance of the sun and the moon to the earth is 108 times their respective diameters.
What is a Sun Salutation?
A sun salutation is a series of postures linked together through breath including upward facing dog and downward facing dog. We will introduce the movements and suggest modifications at the beginning of the mala.
Wondering if you can complete 108?
You do not need to complete 108 sun salutations to participate. A half mala (54), a quarter mala (27), or a practice in the intention and tone of celebrating the winter solstice is welcome! As always, please plan to move with intention, awareness & listen to your own body.
We look forward to celebrating the Solstice with you!
