Fall Equinox 108 Sun Salute Fundraiser
On Sept. 22 from 7-9 pm, Dublin Nutrition Club will host a Fall Equinox 108 Sun Salute fundraiser benefiting Strides for Sobriety. Lead by local yoga teacher Kimberly Kayler, the event will last about two hours. No yoga experience is necessary and there will be plenty of breaks and options if 108 seems overwhelming! Come and support this worthy organization that helps ensure counseling is funded for Dublin teens.
Yogis around the globe engage in 108 Sun Salutations (or Surya Namaskar – a sequence of eight postures) during the changing of the seasons – the spring and fall equinox and the summer and winter solstice. Although there is a long list of explanations about the significance of the number 108, ranging from scientific and mathematic to spiritual and historic, one fun explanation is that we are all given enough breath to last 108 years, so it is up to us to use that breath wisely.
All funds raised by the event will be used to further Stride for Sobriety’s mission – to provide troubled teens with more options and funding on their path to sober living.
