This month all donations will be given to Cayuga Pure Organics which suffered a tragic accident that resulted in the loss of the CPO Beanery, which housed our production, processing, and packaging facility. CPO is a critical part of the regional NY farming community, bringing all of us local beans and grains.

THANK YOU to OUR SUPPORTERS!  GreenStar Coop for food donations. Fine Spirit Studio for rain location. Gimme! on Cayuga for coffee/drink donations. All the 10 teachers donating their time.

Completing 108 Sun Salutations in a row is a challenging task. At some point around #20 the body will naturally feel tired. You are encouraged to rest as much as is needed. When you start moving again, often a sense of calmness is found and the movements feel meditative. Surrounded by others doing the same movement at the same time for similar reasons, the energy is wonderful, fun and inspiring.

Why 108? There are many reasons that 108 is considered sacred in different traditions. The diameter of the sun is 108 x’s the diameter of the Earth. Buddhist have 108 beads representing human passions. There are 108 sacred sites in India. There are 108 sacred places of the body. There are 54 letters in the Sanskrit alphabet – each has a masculine (shiva) and feminine (shakti). There are 108 feelings – 36 past, 36 present, 36 future. 1 = higher truth, 0 = emptiness or completeness, 8 = infinity or eternity. Read more>>>
