International Day of Yoga

108 Sun Salutation

Jun 21, 2023

On June 21st Orsolina28 celebrates the summer solstice during the International Day of Yoga through the 108 Sun Salutation on the Open Air Stage. This collective event unifies all the yogi communities around the world as a tribute to the light of life.

108 are the names of Hindu deities, which are named by counting the 108 grains of Mala and chanting mantras. 108 is the number that symbolizes the union of Shiva and Shakti: female energy meeting male energy in the creation of the world.

The practice of 108 Sun Salutations is a powerful tool: as the body begins to get into rhythm and one sun salutation follows another, the mind loses itself in the rhythm and a state of moving meditation begins that stimulates transformation, brings peace, and increases respect and understanding.

The experience is free, alongside the guided activity led by our residential yoga instructor and the guest teachers, Orsolina28 will provide breakfast in the Lemon tree Greenhouse

Sign Up

During the morning it will be possible to participate, with prior reservation, in other activities for mental and physical well-being routinely organized by Orsolina28: Gravity, Pilates and horticulture classes taught by our resident teachers.
