We will go indoors if we have to, of course. $20.00 per person suggested donation All Yogis of all levels are welcome to join us in this summer celebration! The practice of Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskaras) honors the change of seasons and the transitions of nature’s sun and earth energy. It is a moving meditation, a practice to train your mind to "be here now, and only here" and to strengthen your body through the repetition of movements. All levels of yoga practitioners can do 108 sun salutes! We will give modifications throughout, choices, chances to rest, and opportunities to support the group with your presence and with your voice, helping us to count and to remember! Why 108?
