Yoga On High: 108 With Jessamyn Stanley

Join me in the yogic tradition of 108 Sun Salutations as an offering of surrender to the new year in collaboration with The Underbelly and We Go High NC. We’ll be taking plenty of breaks throughout this free yoga class, and I’ll be sharing modifications along the way.

108 has historically been regarded as a sacred number. It’s influence spans across mathematics, astrology, spirituality, religion, and history. 108’s significance touches on liberation, destiny, and the divine. It is also associated with spiritual completion. A yoga mala, or 108 sun salutations, is often done in transitional states. For example- new years, equinoxes, solstices, weddings, births, etc.

Don’t be intimidated. You don’t have to do a single sun salutation if you don’t want to.

Things to do instead of sun salutations:
108 modified sun salutations
108 chants on your mantra of choice
108 deep breaths
108 downward dogs
108 puffs of cannabis
108 intentions for the new year
108 expressions of gratitude
Name 108 people that have impacted you
Make a list of 108 self-care practices
Tell 108 people that you use cannabis and why
108 poses in your favorite yoga posture
108 minutes of meditation
Donate $108 to cannabis justice initiatives
Prepare 108 journal prompts for the year
Spend 108 minutes researching cannabis reform in your state
