End of the World – Winter Solstice
Friday December 21st 6:00 – 8:00pm (or later!)

108 is a very auspicious number in Hindu and Buddhist religions. There are 108 beads on a prayer mala, and 108 SunSalutes are performed at each Solstice and Equinox to herald the new season. This winter solstice, we can also celebrate the end of the Mayan calendar - considered by some to be the harbinger of the End of the World!

More of a 'sweatshop' than a workshop, you need to be strong and fit to undertake this challenging feat. In ashtanga, The 108 is frequently introduced as a 'rite of passage' for budding yogis. Usually performed by the swimming pool at the Southern Star hotel in Mysore, India, seasoned teachers invite students that they consider 'ready' to undertake this initiation. I first learned about it from John Scott. He was introduced to The 108 by his teacher, Derek Ireland, and when Derek died prematurely, John began an annual celebration of 108 SunSalutes on each anniversary of his death.(The celebration of an individual's 'death-day' is an Indian custom.)
