Why Sun Salutations ? Why 108?
In Sanskrit, Sun Salutations are referred to as “Surya Namaskar” and were traditionally practiced to usher in the new day, hence the name. Surya Namaskar' means to 'bow to the sun' and is traditionally practiced at sunrise facing the sun to bring in and give thanks for the energy of 'Prana' (which in Sanskrit means 'life force.')
'Prana' is what gives vitality to every living thing and is what connects us all. By honouring and connecting with this life giving energy we bring ourselves back to presence and connection.

The number 108 is sacred and significant in many ways, appearing in many disciplines from astronomy to yoga.

It is believed that the fire (internal heat) that you build during this practice is cleansing, detoxifying, and gets you more in touch with yourself. If you practice with a positive mantra, like “I am at peace,” then you may see significant changes in your mood and perspective.
