“Namaste” my friends… the ancient Sanskrit greeting often heard in yoga circles meaning “I bow to you“.
“The spirit within me honors and respects the spirit within you“.
Each year yoga practitioners around the world gather for the summer solstice to offer 108 Surya Namaskara or “Sun Salutations”, paying respects to and surrendering themselves to the universe. The number 108 is significant in India, the birthplace of yoga, Vedic mathematicians view 108 as the number representing “the wholeness of existence”. On June 22, 2013, 150 people gathered in Playa del Carmen at the Qartel fit to offer their 108 sun salutations to the universe, celebrating our connection to the cosmos. This was a very special community event in the Mexican Caribbean, a day of peace and harmony. We hope you enjoy the photos by Sol Tamargo!
