Event Details

Yogathon is an initiative to create awareness about yoga and create interest in its practice for a healthier living. The event challenges participants to complete 108 sun salutations and raises funds. We will start the day with some light yoga, then move on to do 108 sun salutations, and end with some snacks.

SUN SALUTATIONS

Take the sun salutation challenge. Let your inner fire burn.

Surya namaskar, or the sun salutation, is a dynamic sequence of movements performed to celebrate the sun, while building strength and improving flexibility.  The fluid, rhythmic postures awaken the whole body, focus the mind, and enliven the breath.

 

WHY 108?

 

A sacred number.

 

The number 108 has a variety of historical, spiritual, scientific, mathematical, and symbolic meanings.  It has become a tradition for yoga practitioners to perform 108 sun salutations.  This is most often done in large groups and often as an offering of peace or hope. 

 

108 CHALLENGE

 

The power of a collective ommmmmm... 

 

On November 18 2017, participants will transcend barriers of age, culture and physical ability to take the group 108 sun salutation challenge.

 

This event is free and open to all. Just come with your yoga mats and take up the challenge.

The Art of Living Foundation

Organiser of Happiness Program

Operating in 152 countries, The Art of Living Foundation (AOLF) is a non-profit, educational and humanitarian organization founded in 1981 by the world-renown philanthropist and spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. All of AOLF’s programs are guided by Sri Sri’s philosophy: “Unless we have a stress-free mind and a violence-free society, we cannot achieve world peace.” The AOLF community is diverse and attracts people from all walks of life backgrounds and religious orientations. 

AOLF offers numerous highly effective educational and self-development programs and tools that facilitate the elimination of stress and foster deep and profound inner peace, happiness and well-being for all individuals. These programs, which include breathing techniques, meditation, yoga, and practical wisdom for daily living, have helped millions around the world to completely transform their lives. 

In addition to these courses offered globally, AOLF, working in collaboration with The International Association for Human Values (IAHV), has successfully implemented numerous humanitarian projects and service initiatives including conflict resolution programs, disaster relief, sustainable rural development, empowerment of women, prisoner rehabilitation, education for all, and environmental sustainability.

Sri Sri’s message is simple: “Love and wisdom can prevail over hatred and violence.” Happily this message is not just a slogan but through AOLF has been and continues to be translated into action and results.
