Pranayama Yoga Studio is the place for Rockford’s original practice of 108 Sun Salutations! On the first of every year, we are offering this invigorating, traditional vinyasa practice.
Why 108 Sun Salutations?
It’s a simple expression of gratitude for each day the sun rises.
108 is a very auspicious number in yogic and Hindu mythology, suggesting wholeness.
Number 108 represents the “distance” form the outer body to the internal self. 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 body, mind, and spirit.
The annual 108 sun salutes for the New Year renews our commitment to our own journey of yoga and prepares our whole self for the coming year.
