Winter Solstice Practice
Practice 108 Sun-Salutes
Friday December 21st 6:00-8:30 pm
Cost $25 - Register by December 15th ( $30 to drop in)
We invite you to join us for our annual 108 Sun-Salute practice. This practice can be somewhat demanding so we recommend you have some yoga experience. After the practice we will take some time to nourish our bodies with a light meal. If you can stay for some sangha time please bring a healthful bite of food to share.
In yoga, the sun symbolizes the soul and the word "solstice," in Latin, means sun standing still. The invitation... to catch a glimpse of your soul as it stands still.
The longest night contains the most hours of darkness. This is a magical time of year. A time to tap into your intentions and to bring forward what it is that you want to plant.
Some questions to ask yourself looking back on your journey from the Summer Solstice...
What have been my successes?
What have I learned?
What is it that I have been nurturing?
Now look at how you can clear space, to open to the return of the light...
What do I need to let go of?
What do I need to clear out to make way for the new?
What is my resistance?
Now we look forward to the return of the light (following the Winter Solstice)...
What is important to me?
What do I value?
What do I want to bring out in to the light and let shine?
What do I want to give?
What do I want to realize?
What are the projects that I want to come to fruition?
