108 Sun Salutations on the Solstice

  • The Peaceful Wild Innelvvegen 243 Kvaløya Norway (map)

As we descend into the dark arctic winter, this special event will honour the sun as an essential life giving force for our planet. 

Following two preparatory lessons, we will perform 108 sun salutations on the winter solstice to celebrate that we are, once again, turning back towards the sun. 

The salute to the sun series - Surya Namaskar – is a classic sequence of yoga asana. It was initially proposed as a practice to be repeated at sunrise; honoring the new day and warming up the body. For some yoga practitioners, there is also a tradition of performing 108 sun salutations on the summer and winter solstices - the longest and shortest days of the year - to recognise, honour and celebrate our circling movement around the sun and its role as a foundational source of all life on Earth. 

For this special event, we will first have 2 preparatory classes (12th & 19th December 18:00-19:30) to learn the sequence, as well as modifications for each pose, as a way to build up to the extended solstice session on December 21st (17:00-21:00). The 108 sun salutations performed on the solstice will be divided into 9 sets of 12, with each set separated by short meditation breaks to rest and reconnect. 

Limited places are available for this event so confirmation through registration is required.
Cost for whole course is 600 NOK. 

For registration, payment can be made to account: 47504275074 or VIPPS to 40321002

This is a beautiful way to start the holidays and bring light to the darkness so I hope to see you there. Namaste!
