Holla! Mala!

Yesterday was the Summer Solstice and I celebrated it at Tula Yoga Studio by co-leading 108 sun salutes with my soul sis, Veronica.

This brave group (108 sun salutes are no joke) brought great energy. The number 108 is a sacred number in many traditions, there are 108 beads on a Mala necklace (like the Malas my buddy Kassandra and I rocked last night for the celebration)

The Mala beads are used for prayer or meditation. Repeating a mantra 108 times and following the beads with your fingers is a common technique. Instead of repeating a mantra 108 times we did 108 Sun Salutation A’s to drop into a meditative state. This is physically and mentally demanding. But they did it! Thanks to all who attended.

Happy Summer Solstice!
