Winter Solstice Celebration: 108 Sun Salutations Challenge with Pooja
The Winter Solstice marks the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, the opposite is true. Join us to celebrate this significant day by participating in 108 Sun Salutations with Pooja.
Sun Salutations are always an important part of Yoga Asana practice.
The Yogic Surya Namaskar practice symbolises reverence to the energy of the Sun and allows us to greet the new day by aligning ourselves with the greater source of creation.
Sun Salutations are a set of 12 postures practiced in synchronisation with the breath, which not only help to invigorate the internal system but also make this practice a meditation in itself.
Surya Namaskars offer a series of extension postures which help to expand the chest and activate the lower limbs of the lungs where the calm nerve receptors are, thus activating the parasympathetic nervous system. These are followed by flexion postures which massage the internal organs and nourish them with a fresh blood flow.
The repetition of the 12 postures invigorate the whole body and gives us an opportunity to connect mind, body and breath.
