Young and fit? Try 108 sun salutations! This is an eye catcher and an attention grabber, but…..
1) Do multiple sun salutations actually publicize what yoga is all about?
2) Does the spectre of 108 sun salutations scare people from beginning yoga?
Sept. 24, 2011 at the Fredericksburg, VA downtown library, two yoga teachers will host an event featuring 108 sun salutations.
In my view, this is a spectator sport. Sun salutations may be the most recognized but least accessible of yoga’s 700+ asana forms. (postures). The sun salutation presents a formidable challenge, and perhaps wrongly represent a practice that is actually appropriate and accessible for people of all ages and fitness levels.
I quote a well-known yogi who said “don’t make an asana out of yourself”"
