Welcome to the 108 Sun Salute ritual. 🙏🥰️

Are you tired of doubting yourself?
I know I was. Lets put it like this, there is a reason that there is the saying “Doubting Thomas”. 😅

Hi my name is Toms (Latvian version of Thomas 😉) and I help people to raise their energy through coaching and yoga practice.

Nothing raises your energy as proving your doubts wrong by doing it anyway. And this time you don’t have to do it alone. You will have support from a group of like-minded people to empower you to go as far as you are willing to go. Even if it is virtual – there is a tremendous power of practicing the same thing in a group setting.

If empowering yourself is something you are interested in joining in!

You will benefit from this ritual even if you are able to complete only part of it. Yes, you don’t need to make it to the magic number 108. Even 10 sun salutes will make you feel empowered. However, if you fell up to a challenge, we will split up those 108 into 4 sets of 27 salutes, giving you time to assess your physical and mental state.

Challenge the stories you are so used to hearing and let the best part out of you!

 

Intro

Every year we have 4 reasons. And at the start of each of them, there is a great tradition of doing 108 Sun Salutations to celebrate the change in season and change in life. It’s like a worthy milestone to stop for a while and reassess life! It is not only an energizing, rejuvenating, and cleansing ritual. It is also a celebration to express our gratitude for providing us with light, warmth, and energy.  

We all know about 4 seasons and each one of them has been celebrated since ancient days. So how is it relevant today? Well, principles have not changed. We all are still here just because of the light and warmth the Sun is providing us. Without Sun there would be no life (as we know it) here on Earth – no you, no me, no fruits, no plants no animals. Nothing. Would you agree that this deserves at least a bit of gratitude and appreciation from time to time? Imagine bringing a birthday present to your child. And instead of appreciation you get at best ignored or even mocked: “Is that it? What else you got for me?”. Not a nice thing to do, is it? And now imagine we have a similar relationship with the sun. There are 2 solstices – marking the beginning of the summer and the winter accordingly. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year when Sun reaches the highest point in the sky. And the winter solstice is the shortest day and the lowest point. And there are 2 equinoxes: spring and autumn when night and day are the most equal length to each other of the year. and a celebration ritual to express our gratitude for providing us with light, warmth, and energy. 108 Sun Salutes is a wonderful practice to learn sync your breath with your movement. It also opens your mind to new possibilities and tests your will power and energizes you in the process.  

Why would one practice Sun Salutations?

 

To Honor the Sun

Sun is the light and energy source for life on earth. And it makes sense to have a small ritual, call it a sequence if you will, to honor this relationship.
 

For the love of poetry

“Surya Namaskar” is salutations to the Sun. Where “Namaskar” means “I bow my head with complete gratitude and offer myself to you wholeheartedly without being biased and partial”. And the word “Surya” means “the one who expands and illuminates the world”. Beautiful, right?

Why 108?

It’s a well know tradition and a sacred number in the yogic tradition. 😊 And for the rest of us, it is a nice looking number and big enough to make the practice exciting. 😉  

Invention of the light bulb purportedly took Thomas Edison 1,000 tries before he developed a successful prototype. “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” a reporter asked. “I didn’t fail 1,000 times,” Edison responded. “The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
