Our salute to the Summer Solstice: 108 what?

Here’s our first foray into Ashtanga meme-making. We’ve both done our malas.

It’s the Summer Solstice, and you know what that means

Yep. Time to bust out the 108 sun salutes.

Here’s the way one of our first Ashtanga teachers celebrated the passing seasons:

First five Suryanamaskara A’s are done as you always start practice, with five breaths in down dog. After that, just one breath as you moved along pretty rapidly. She’d then divide the practice into four sets of 27.

Others will add in five B’s at the beginning (Nos. 6 through 10)  and go on from there.

How to do it, or even whether to, is up to you. But it may be a way to get out of a Led class today. (You also could join the hordes in Times Square or any number of classes in Los Angeles.)

I’m currently trying to figure out how to deal with all the booming that’s bound to happen in our house.
