How to get through 108 Sun Salutations...


First of all, you don't have to finish all 108. You can do as many or as few as you want. It is your intention, and most importantly, your presence, that counts.

Second of all, you don't have to worry about keeping track. That's what Michele and I are there for.

Finally, to keep it fresh and to keep it moving, Michele and I are going to break it up into nine sets of 12 salutations, holding down dog only in the sixth of the 12, and then holding child's pose in the 12th of the 12. Each set of 12 salutations will be imbued with its own intention, usually in the form of a short quotation from a wise mind (for example, the Dalai Lama, Helen Keller, Coretta Scott King). The overarching theme will be "helping others" (or in yogic terms, "karma").

We look forward to seeing you at Yoga Sutra tonight!

I live by a duck pond. I used to live by the East River. I don't work. I used to work a lot. Now, not so much. I used to teach a lot of yoga. Now not so much. I still practice a lot of yoga though. A LOT. I love my kids, being outdoors, taking photos, reading magazines, writing and stirring the pot. Enjoy responsibly.
