Why 108 Sun Salutations?
The number 108 is considered sacred in many Eastern religions and traditions, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism and connected yoga and dharma-based practices. The individual digits 108, 1, 0, and 8 represent one thing, nothing, and everything (infinity), symbolizing the reality of the universe.
When you engage in performing 108 Sun Salutations, you're embarking on a sacred and transformative journey that brings:
Strength & Flexibility: Improve your body's strength and flexibility through the repetitive sequence of Sun Salutations.
Stress Release: The rhythmic movements and focused breathing help calm your mind, reducing stress and anxiety.
Detoxification: Sun Salutations stimulate your cardiovascular system, helping your body to detoxify.
Spiritual Awakening: The repetition of the Sun Salutations serves as a moving meditation, promoting mindfulness and a sense of inner peace.
Global Connection: By participating, you'll be joining a worldwide movement, connecting with yogis across the globe.
