Join us for a rejuvenating and energizing yoga class on New Year’s Day as we welcome the fresh start of the year with a special practice of 108 Sun Salutations. This unique and symbolic sequence is designed to cleanse the body, clear the mind, and set positive intentions for the year ahead.
The 108 is a sacred number and appears again and again in Buddhist and Hindu beliefs. The 1 stands for unity, the 0 for perfection and at the same time for emptiness, the 8 stands for infinity. And what better way to welcome in the new year than by giving to the sun – the sun salutation.
Practicing 108 sun salutations is a moving meditation It. requires a strong will and a single-pointed focus on moving with the breath. Once you get into a rhythm with your sun salutation flow, your mental chatter will decrease as your awareness turns inward.
What to expect:
- A mindful and invigorating yoga practice suitable for all levels
- Guidance on proper alignment and breathing techniques
- 108 rounds of Sun Salutations led by our experienced yoga instructor

Sun Salutations activate stuck energy, help you move through it, and ultimately let go of things that no longer serve you. Releasing negative energy is an important step on the path to happiness, and this practice will show you that you have the power to release anything holding you back.
