WINTER SOLSTICE 108 SUN SALUTATIONS WITH LIVE DRUMMING BY DRUMINYASA & NICOLE

Brad from Druminyasa Drumming & Nicole leading class for our 108 Sun Salutations to ring in and welcome the new season. The Winter Solstice symbolizes death and rebirth – new beginnings and fresh starts.

What is the significance of 108?
The number 108 is sacred and significant in many ways, appearing in many disciplines from astronomy to yoga:
  • The number 108 appears in ancient, sacred texts. For example, there are 108 Upanishads and 108 Tantras
  • In numerology, 108 equals 9, which symbolizes universal love, eternity and awakening
  • In Ayurveda, there are 108 sacred points on the body
  • In astronomy, the distance between the Sun and Earth is roughly 108 times the Sun’s diameter
  • Mala bead necklaces have 108 beads, which are used to count during meditation
6 Things You Will Learn:
You are stronger than you think.
Negative energy does not define you.
You have the power to shift your perspective.
You can find grounding amidst any challenge.
You will discover your inner drive.
You will have more energy afterwards.
 
& the Live Drumming with Brad = NEXT LEVEL

DECEMBER KUNGA MONTHLY THEME:
10 MINS OF SAVASANA

Relaxation is one of the primary benefits of a hatha yoga practice, as well as one of the sweet gifts of life itself. When our body and mind are relaxed and at ease, we can function optimally, allowing a balanced, calm and harmonious state throughout. However, a relaxed body and mind can be challenging for many to attain.
