108 Sun Salutations Fundraiser

Olympic Snowboarder Jamie Anderson and Wellness Ambassador Megan Pishke led the yoga Sun Salutation routine. The Sun Salutation, also known as surya namaskar (Sanskrit), is a dynamic sequence of movements (asana) performed to celebrate the sun, while building strength and improving flexibility.

The Meaning Behind The 108 Sun Salutations:

According to B4BC there are many reasons for the sacred number of 108, but they personally chose this number because of the connection with the heart chakra. Chakras, intersections of energy lines have 108 heart chakras. One of these heart energy lines called sushumna leads to the crown chakra and some say is can help one gain self- realization. B4BC also connects connects this chakra to connecting inward with oneself.
