Why 108 Sun Salutations
108 is a sacred number in Yoga and Hinduism. Malas are a string of 108 beads, there are 108 Upanishads (ancient sanskrit texts) and there are 108 energy lines in the body.
Completing 108 sun salutations will leave you feeling energised, cleansed, and wanting more! Expect to sweat and your heart rate to go up. I have a great playlist to keep us motivated throughout the class. We will start with a gentle warm up and end with some stretches and a long savasana.
Some of the benefits of Sun Salutations are that it improves quality and circulation of the blood, Strengthens the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists, fingers, back, stomach, waist, abdomen, intestines, thighs, knees, calves and ankles and improves immunity.
About Belsize Community Library
There has been a library on this spot, the corner of Antrim Grove in Belsize Park, since 1896. In 2012, the council stopped its funding but the library was rescued by local children’s charity The Winch, which has many demands on its finances.
Don’t let ours be the generation that sees the library close! It is a beautiful public space full of light, warmth, books and toys, that welcomes local people of any age or income to sit reading or playing or drinking a cup of tea, to be amongst other people, and allows children to discover the pleasure of books whether or not their parents can afford to buy them. It nourishes the soul of Belsize Park.
