108 Sun Salutations for Spring March 9th 6:00 - 8:00pmJoin us for 108 Sun Salutations to celebrate the coming of Spring!We will start by setting an intention for our practice. Then, we invite you break down the 108 into these 3 parts or some other themes of your choice.* 1st 36: Focus on a person or event from the past that’s holding you back from living the life you want.* 2nd 36: Focus on some aspect of your present life that’s not serving you, and let go of that person, idea, feeling, etc.* 3rd 36: Focus on letting go of the grasp you have on what you believe your future is “supposed” to hold for you.The significance of 108, renowned mathematicians of Vedic culture viewed 108 as a number of the wholeness of existence and according to yogic tradition, there are 108 piths, or sacred sites, throughout India. There are also 108 Upanishads and 108 karma points, or sacred places of the body. Traditionally, malas are used for counting as you repeat a mantra or a prayer, much like the Catholic rosary. This number also connects the Sun, Moon, and Earth: The average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters.ALL ARE INVITED TO PRACTICE, basic knowledge of the sun salutations is recommend but doing all 108 is NOT required. If you find that you can only do 10 you may still participate in this meditative practice.Regular class rates apply. See www.village-yoga.com/pricing for info.

About Yoga Nidra:
Yoga Nidra is a technique in which you learn to relax consciously. The word ‘nidra’ is translated literally to mean sleep but in this practice sleep is not regarded as true relaxation. For absolute relaxation, one must remain aware, and is in a state of awareness between wakefulness and dreams. It is a system of inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Practicing a method such as this can calm the entire emotional structure of the mind. It is an effective way to release stress and induce deep physiological rest and relaxation. Scientific studies have shown that practicing yoga nidra can lower blood pressure, anxiety levels, cure insomnia, and change your brain wave patterns, and all of these benefits without any effort or movement! This is the practice of Yoga Nidra-a state of dynamic sleep which is a deep relaxation with inner awareness. Yoga Nidra will change your life!

The first few minutes each day will be spent discussing a foundational concept, then the students will move through a warm up, a simple flow, a cool down. At the end of class we’ll play some yoga games! Each week, the instructor will send the students home with a little worksheet to do with their parents so that the learning can continue at home.Class is for children ages 8-12 years old.Drop In $16 per child
