On Saturday, October 10th we invite you to join us for a charity yoga event, HYBRID 108 Sun Salutations - Karma Yoga, to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. 100% of all the funds will be donated to this worthwhile cause.
Everyone is welcome to join in... all levels welcome. You will only practice as many rounds as you are comfortable with and modifications will be offered. Feel free to take breaks on your own whenever you need to and rejoin the session at any time. Remember there is no ego or competition in yoga.
Surya Namaskar, the Sun Salutation, is a series of 12 postures performed in a single, graceful flow. Each movement is coordinated with the breath. The Sun Salutation, traditionally done facing the sun, is a way to honor the new day and to acknowledge change, from night to day, or the shifting from one chapter to another in our lives. As we practice together we invite you to be mindful of always being open to new possibilities and to welcome new beginnings.
Why 108 Sun Salutations?
The number 108 also carries spiritual significance: 108 is the number of beads on a Tibetan “mala” (meditation beads)
108 is twelve times the number 9, which is the number of vinyasas (movements linked to breath) in a Sun Salutation
1 stands for Higher Truth, 0 stands for Emptiness and 8 stands for Infinity.
In addition to all the above... well, 108 Salutations will be a challenge, representative of the difficult battle that an individual or a family faces as they face the battle of cancer. No matter how hard it is going to be to go through 108 Sun Salutations, it is not going to be as hard as a cancer diagnosis. As we go through the movements, we ask you to be grateful for what you are able to do to help, to focus on the fact that you have the strength to act and move and do some good in the world to make a change.
Please join us and be part of this Karma Yoga event, 108 Sun Salutations. This special event will be led by Energie EnCorps yoga teachers and yoga teachers in training. We ask you to support a good cause as well as encourage the development of our teachers in training. Together we can uplift others.
