Happy Summer Solstice! Celebrating the longest day of the year with 108 sun salutations was invigorating-challenging-exhausting-energizing and rewarding! 108 is a number that has many meanings and before we began our fearless leader Erin shared with us some of the meanings. For all twenty of us enduring and meeting the challenge of 108 Sun Salutations it meant getting through and being able to walk out the door.
I am happy to announce we all made it and found ourselves to be filled with this exciting high. To think it only cost us $12! This natural high is what it feels like to balance the energy in your body. This natural high happens when you combine your body mind and breath. When you are guided by breath when you are guided by your internal spirit…well life just gets easy.
In Sun Salutations we build energy in our body. We build this internal heat that helps to burn all the blocks and toxins in our body. We move with our breath and let our minds stay focused on the breath and not the work. If we lose our focus we notice how muscles get tired.
It was an amazing Celebration! Thank you to Erin for the thought…and to everyone that shared in the celebration.
Happy Happy Summer Solstice!
May the long time Sun shine upon you
All love surround you
May the pure light within you
Guide your way on
