Summer Solstice Yoga Mala

Saturday, June 22
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Wheaton Location

This Summer, join Mackenzie for 108 Sun Salutations to wash away spring, and welcome in summer. The journey of the sun throughout the year is representative of one’s personal journey through and to enlightenment. The summer solstice is the pinnacle of this journey; it is a time to commemorate the conquest of light over darkness in the individual, and the return of unity, wholeness and amalgamated consciousness. We will link breath, beats and motion to create a moving meditation. The first part of this class will be physically and mentally challenging, yet accessible- 108 chaturanga’s is no joke. There will be many layers to the mala, making it accessible for all levels, but allowing it to be challenging even for advanced yogi(ni)'s. Following the salutations, we will cool down with a scents and sounds restorative sequence.
