It’s that time again can you believe it Summer is here! To honour the Summer Solstice and raise money for a great cause we invite you to join us for our charity yoga event where we will practice 108 rounds of Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) a series of 12 asanas (poses) done in a flow coordinated with the breath.

Event will take place online & in studio so please makes sure you book into the correct option at time of booking.
The class is £10 with proceeds from this event going towards Healed Scars a new local charity that supports women who have experienced trauma.
We welcome any donations no matter how big or small. You can even ask your friends & family to sponsor you to hold yourself accountable and raise money for an excellent cause. Everyone is welcome to join in, including children (under supervision).
Only practise as many rounds as you are comfortable with and you can take breaks whenever you need to.
The event is for FUN, there is no ego or competition in yoga.
So why 108 Sun Salutations?
The practice is an ancient Hindu tradition and is traditionally done to honour the change in seasons.
Typically, it is done during the summer and winter solstice time (longest and shortest days of the year).
In addition to its spiritual and cultural value, the practice is highly beneficial from a health and well-being point of view as it makes the body highly flexible, supple, strong and also helps remove toxins from the system.
The number 108 carries spiritual significance in many cultures:
108 is the number of “Upanishads” comprising Indian philosophy’s “Vedic texts”.
108 is the number of names for Shiva (Hindu god).
108 is the number of names for Buddha.
108 is the number of beads on a Catholic rosary.
108 is the number of beads on a Tibetan “mala” (prayer beads, analogous to a rosary).
108 is twelve times the number 9, which is the number of vinyasas (movements linked to breath) in a Sun Salutation
108 is the number of Sutras in the Yoga Sutras.
1 stands for Higher Truth, 0 stands for Emptiness and 8 stands for Infinity.
