108 has long been considered a sacred number in yoga meaning “Great Joy”. Traditionally, garlands of prayer beads, come as a string of 108 beads, mantras are repeated 108 times, and the average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters. Let's add to the world-wide ritual of adventuring into the Sun Salutation.... 108 times of course!
The Sun Salutation is a series of 12 yoga postures energizing the solar plexus region, an important center in the body, connected to many energy channels including digestion, circulation and respiration. This solar plexus chakra, Manipura, is the seat of our will power, our practical intelligence, our individuality, and self-control. This is a practice that connects us to our center, building focus, discipline and determination. Not to mention physical strength, mental strength and flexibility!
What will happen in the body/mind during this rigorous ritual of 108 Surya Namaskar? Repetition can create a relaxed, trance-like state, which leaves us more open to deeper insight. Don't fret!
Although intense, this isn't “extreme yoga,” and there will be breaks and modifications, of course. Please be familiar with basic sun salutations.
