As thousands of Pagans gather at Stonehenge for June 21st, the Summer Solstice is also special day in the yogi calendar. June 21st is the International Day of Yoga.
At the Prana Vashya Yoga Studio we celebrated the Summer Solstice with our 108 Salutation Practice. This energizing practice includes intention setting, chanting, and then maintaining breath-to-movement connections while flowing through the postures of each Salutation. Throughout this practice you to sink into a meditative state of mind as you turn your senses inwards.
Venerated by the ancient sages of India, the Sun has 1008 different names in Sanskrit including Hraam, Hreem, Hroom, Hraim, Hraha, etc. Today we chanted 6 mantras between sets of Salutations in celebration. Just as the Summer Solstice represents a turning point in the earths cycle of life; yoga, and life, ever changes, evolves, opening-up new opportunities to grow and improve.
