The number “108” is sacred in many yoga traditions. Malas, the long strands of prayer beads, are traditionally made up of 108 beads. There are 54 letters in the Sanskrit alphabet and each letter has a masculine and a feminine form, for a total of 108. The diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth. These are just a few examples of the significance of the number 108.
Sun Salutations are a traditional sequence of simple yoga poses that work the entire body, build heat, and create a meditative flow of breath, thought, and movement. Moving through 108 Sun Salutations is physically and mentally challenging. But within the challenge, many students expand their minds, bodies, and hearts. It is an experience that really cannot be explained but rather must be exerienced.
