Celebrate the New Year with 108 Sun Salutations!

Embrace change, new beginnings, and new opportunities. Close the door on old habits and stagnate energy. Harness the power of a sacred cycle honoring and celebrating the connection between endings and beginnings.


Everyone is welcome! In fact, this year there are two (2) sessions; so, pick the time and location which works best for you. Myra will keep count and offer suggestions, modifications, and encouragement so that even someone who has never practiced yoga can experience the power and benefits of this invigorating practice.


A Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar) is a full mind-body-spirit workout. The full range of motions within the practice, as well as the seamless connection to breath, establishes a meditative state and an awareness of each present moment. Practicing 108 Sun Salutations is a traditional way to celebrate seasonal changes, while promoting peace, healing, and personal transformation.

WHEN & WHERE: Friday, January 1, 2016


Why is it so long?

We will breathe and flow as a community, at a pace appropriate for everyone within our sacred circle. Each round will begin with a dedication and end with a “restorative moment.” The traditional practice, including Savasana (a final resting pose) will take approximately 3 hours.

Since the physical practice prepares the body for a deep-seated meditation, everyone is invited to stay for a guided meditation.

How much?

The Nokomis Yoga mala is a donation-based event. The Downtown-Minneapolis mala is for YMCA members and their guests. Please contact the Downtown-Minneapolis YMCA about parking on New Year’s Day.

Space is limited at Nokomis Yoga. Please e-mail “myra at ajoyfulpractice.com” to save your spot.
