Spring Equinox Yoga Mala

Yoga Students

Sunday, March 20, 2016 from 5:00-7:15pm
1240 Carmichael Gymnasium

The spring equinox is a special day in our annual calendar, so celebrate this day with a special yoga practice! The start of the spring season is a time of rebirth and growth. Restart or increase your commitment to a fit body and mind with this invigorating yoga mala practice of (up to) 108 sun salutations. Why 108? See this article for just a few reasons why the number 108 is significant to yoga: satyayoganorfolk.com

The practice will be divided into four sets of 27 salutations, each set with it’s own intention. Participants will be encouraged to do as many or as few of the salutations as they would like, and all will also be encouraged to take modifications and rest as needed. The option to sit with the breath or chant the sound of Om in place of the sun salutations is always available. Even if you are resting, others will be practicing and so as a community, we will complete all 108! We will complete the experience with a long (and well deserved) savasana.

Some yoga experience is recommended; however, the session will begin with a brief instructional lesson and review of various sun salutation options.

This event is FREE and open to all NCSU students/faculty/staff.

The workshop will take place in the yoga studio (room 1240) in Carmichael Gym (directly across from the entrance to the women’s locker room). It is not necessary to preregister, but feel free to contact Teaching Assistant Professor Autumn Mist Belk if you have any questions or concerns prior to Sunday.
