The stage of inner growth that involves inviting in the Light to illuminate our darkness so that understanding, acceptance and unconditional self-love can take place. -Spiritual Alchemy-
Both light and darkness can have its comforting moments and its vital purposes. However living too long in one can create dis-ease and imbalance. We witness the universal shifts this month as we felt what happens when one crosses paths with the other. These shifts are not to be ignored, don't hide from them, accept them with open arms and understanding. Through hard times we climb to the easier path and to enjoy light we must first witness the dark. So it is with our practice on and off the mat. Give yourself freely to the journey, all of the ups and downs of it, shower yourself with compassion along the way. Take this practice off the mat, give yourself freely to your friends and family and shower them with compassion and love along the way.

Yoga Mala: 108 Sun Salutations
September 16th 8 AM
Our Autumn Equinox, when the days get shorter and the nights get longer. Our bodies begin to rest more. Crave a deeper sense of being. We cling towards our loved ones and burrow in for the winter. This particular equinox also falls so close to a new moon which lends to new beginnings and intentions. Let us celebrate and welcome this change with 108 Sun Saluations. This practice that is anchored in tradition will unite our yoga community through the power of moving mediation.
Join Yoga Shine as we do 9 rounds of 12 salutations with savasana in between each round. There will be plenty of time and as always you may feel free to sit out a round, mediate or go at your own pace. We look forward to honoring this tradition with you all!
