Sun Salutation A Video to Celebrate Summer Solstice

Celebrate Summer Solstice With Sun Salutation A

Happy first day of Summer! Although it feels like we were just talking about skiing and how to prevent the flu, June 20 is here — aka the Summer Solstice. You can celebrate by getting outside for a Summer run along the beach, chopping up a fresh strawberry salad, or do like the yogis do: perform 108 Sun Salutations, a practice called Mala. The number 108 is considered sacred in Hindu and Buddhist belief systems, and it represents quite a physical challenge too.

If there's no yoga studio close to you hosting a group Mala, unroll your yoga mat and try it on your own. Light some candles or perform your sun salutes under the twinkling glow of the clear night sky. Get ready to welcome Summer and say hello to the sun.

Not sure how to do a Sun Salutation? Watch this video of the calming yoga sequence.
