What to Expect
During the Autumnal Equinox, the sun shines directly on the equator, and the northern and southern hemispheres get the same amount of rays. The word Equinox is derived from the Latin words for equal (aequus) and night (nox). Traditionally, the Autumn equinox was the time to honor the harvest. Metaphorically, it refers to the harvest of goals and intentions you set or planted when the year started and how those have been evolving or growing. Nature comes into balance at this magical time of the Autumn Equinox by offering us equal day and equal night. In the Northern Hemisphere nature enters autumn and prepares for the darker months ahead. At the Autumn Equinox there is a shift in emphasis from sun to moon, light to dark, action to contemplation, growth to dormancy, doing to letting go, movement to stillness. Nature is always looking for balance. As humans in the modern world, we have moved so far away from nature. We ignore its flow, the signs it is giving us and we keep going, plodding along… until we are forced to stop due to fatigue or sickness. These darkening months ahead are a time to reset, to rest, to do less. The Autumn Equinox is the invitation to find balance. Take time for yourself this Autumn Equinox to find some balance within your life. Join Colette and Aoife as we share space between doing and resting. 108 sun salutations is known as a moving meditation, where each move is linked to the breath. The number 108 is sacred and significant in many disciplines. To name but a few, there are 108 pressure points and 108 energy lines in the body, the distance between the Earth and sun is 108 times the diameter of the sun, India is said to have 108 sacred sites and many Buddhist temples have 108 steps representing the 108 steps to enlightenment. If it's your first time to do 108 sun salutations, we promise you will feel energised with all those happy hormones flooding your body and will be delighted with yourself. We will send a video to all our attendees in advance of the event with Surya Namaskar A, the sun salutation we will be doing. Keep an eye on your emails and our social media pages also for updates. All Levels/All Bodies/All Ages welcome. No yoga experience needed, just an open mind.:-) Please bring a yoga mat, water and a blanket. Note: Please come 10 mins before the start. Please share this event with family & friends, even if they are not living in Dublin. The event will be available online and streamed live.
