Celebrate Nature, the change of season, and National Yoga Month with this ancient and powerful practice. A Sun Salutation is a series of 12 linked yoga poses. It is said to detoxify, massage and stimulate every organ in the body. For the mind and spirit, the benefits are many - calms the mind and connects you with your own breath and soul. The number 108 has a variety of historical, spiritual, scientific and mathematical meanings. One of them being: 1=your singular nature, 0=emptiness of thought, and 8=infinity/endless possibilities. Yoga practitioners all over the world gather to celebrate the Autumn Equinox. Now, Athens is joining in! The autumnal equinox practice symbolizes the intent of letting go of what no longer serves our purpose. Like the trees in this season, we can unburden ourselves and let go of the old.
