Practicing 108 sun salutations at the equinoxes is an ancient practice in the yogic tradition.
Most ancient traditions actually have some sort of practice and / or ceremony during the equinoxes.
I must say that to me the practice of the 108 sun salutations does feel like a moving meditation, like a moving mantra, like a moving prayer, like a moving ceremony.
It is a beautiful way to step in to a new chapter, a new intention, while leaving the old behind, step by step, finishing the practice with a true feeling of renewal.
We are honouring these traditions and practicing the 108 sun salutations together on “Midsummer” which falls on Friday the 24th of June this year of 2022, at Solid Performance in Cruquius.
And you are warmly invited to join!
If the weather permits we might even be able to practice outdoors.
A full practice session of 108 sun salutations themselves takes around one and a half hour. We all keep the same pace of the sun salutations, yet whenever the body asks for rest you can and should lie down on your back or in baby pose – you will be part of the flow and the energy anyway.
Since it can be quite an intense practice for the body and the mind we are building the practice up with three sessions for those who wish leading up to 24/6.
Every session starts with a sitting meditation, guided pranayama / breathing and ends with savasana / relaxation.

This practice is only available for those who already know the sun salutation. There will be a brief explanation at the beginning of the different variations and how and what to choose should you encounter challenges. There is however no formal teaching of the sun salutation during these sessions as we want to move, breathe and rest wherever necessary, as one flow.
There is limited space so please, make sure to book in advance either via e-mail or What’s App:
Warm, sunny welcome everyone!
