About the Event
The summer solstice marks the longest day of the year and the start of astronomic summer. It always occurs between 20th and 22nd June in the Northern hemisphere. The changing of seasons are a time of transformation, change, nature and new beginnings. So this time of year is an opportunity to take stock, set our intentions and review those we might have made at New Year. We can use our yoga practice to support this process by including practices that create heat in the body and build our inner strength.
The summer solstice is also a time to honor the sun. International Yoga Day falls on June 21st each year, and is often celebrated around the world by performing 108 Sun Salutations. Completing 108 Sun Salutations can make you feel more focused, disciplined, strong, and resilient.
This class will be 90 minutes long, where we will make out way to 108. We will begin with a brief centering, start flowing slowly, and then start to link movement with breath. Your instructor will keep track of the count, and you can simply move and be.
Please remember, that you do not have to do what your body doesn't want to do. Modifcations and variations will be taught, and it is critical that you do what is best for you.
