108 Sun Salutations

Happy Solstice! With the continued travel restrictions due to the pandemic, it is a pleasure to get outside, especially when the sun shines. The days are short this time of year, so it’s important to soak up as much sunlight as we can.

With some yogis, it is a ritual to celebrate the solstices and equinoxes by doing 108 Sun Salutations. This practice is most often done in large groups and often as an offering, such as an offering of peace or unity. However, you can do these in the comfort of your own home with a video that I created.

Follow along as I guide you through 108 sun salutations, which you can do today on the winter solstice, or anytime you feel like an invigorating yoga session.

I am not deprived of anything, but I admit that kicking the caffeine habit was (and still is) the most challenging. I’ll write more about the beneficial experience later. For now, here are some seasonal wellness opportunities to explore.
