Description:

Join Rachel for this wonderful practice 108 Sun Salutations to call in the New Year. This is an ancient practice to honor the 108 constellations in the Vedic Astrology tradition, done on a potent day in order to set intentions and shift your consciousness into and elevated state!

This is a beautiful practice that you can do at your own pace. Rest, take breaks when you need and listen to your body. Move in rhythm with your breath and flow through this wonderful practice of Surya Namaskar Yoga Mala. Allow yourself to drop in and get completely immersed in the practice, emerging into a connected, peaceful state to welcome in the New Year.

To help you keep count as you progress through 108 Sun Salutations, bring along 9 pebbles, stones, crystals, beads or similar, and a piece of paper and pen to have at the top of your mat. Have your pebbles on one side of your mat, and with every Surya Namaskar, move one to the opposite side. After all pebbles are on one side again, tally on your piece of paper. Repeat 12 times for 108.

As this is a self-guided practice, take time to stretch before and after, hydrate throughout, and don't forget to drop into Savasana for some much deserved rest and integration when you are finished with your 108.
