Pranayama Yoga Studio is the place for Rockford’s original practice of 108 Sun Salutations! On the first of every year, on other special occasions, or just for the fun of it, we continue to offer this invigorating, traditional vinyasa practice.
The Sun Salutation is a simple expression of gratitude for each day the sun rises. Also, the number 108 is a very auspicious number in yogic and Hindu mythology. In yoga, our individual inner space is mirrored to the outer cosmology. When performing 108 sun salutations, we are meditating in action, completing a symbolic journey from our outer physical body to the deeper spirit within.
This repetition of sun salutations is not just a great physical work-out, but a whole body prayer that affects mind, body, and spirit.
