Celebrate the first day of summer with Mariah and Tammura as we lead you through 108 Sun Salutations to honor the summer solstice.
The longest day of the year is the first day of summer, the summer solstice. In honor of the solstice we practice 108 Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar). It is naturally a sequence we practice often in yoga. Solstice means to stop or stand still. This is the perfect day to observe where we’re at in life halfway through the year. It is a time to pause from our busy schedules to tune in and take stock of what is working for us, and what needs to change. Asking the question of: where and when do we feel most aligned? As we salute the sun you’ll find the breath begins to connect with the movements and the mind connects to the present. At the same time we’re bowing to the sun we are also taking in the fiery solar energy. This class is meant to energize, focus, and perhaps ignite a spark in your soul you’d like to rekindle. Come bask in this feel good energy on the mat.
Mariah has been participating in Summer Solstice “Salute to the sun” classes for 7 years. It is her privilege to guide one here in the Boro.
