Winter Solstice 108 Sun Salutations Sunrise
108 Challenge: Celebrating International Yoga Day with Life Retreat and Fran Siebrits
Join us for this unique opportunity to be part of a traditional yoga practice on 21 June (International Yoga Day & Winter Solstice).
We will be doing a 108 rounds of sun salutations… in one go.
This physically demanding practice is open to anyone who would like to flow through 108 repetitions of surya namaskar to their own body-breath rhythm.
In honouring yogic tradition, we will be holding this practice early morning.
♥ Why 108?
The number 108 has many important and symbolic meanings in diverse disciplines.
♥ For those who are just up for a physical asana challenge, this will definitely tick the box.
♥ Or for those wanting a deeper meaning, practicing 108 rounds of surya namaskar turns up the heat (physically and energetically)
♥ Remember that as with any yoga practice, it is the sentiment and intention behind the action that infuses the practice with purpose, motivation, discipline and sustainability.

WHAT TO EXPECT / BRING:
• Have a light snack 1-2 hours prior to the practice, please don’t come on an empty nor a full stomach.
• Small sips of water in between the practice are okay but be mindful not to drink too much in one go during the asana.
• The 108 surya namaskar repetitions will be followed by savasana and a guided yoga nidra.
• Bring something warm (a top, socks and blanket) as the body temperature will cool down pretty quickly during this relaxation.
