108 Sun Salutations for World Peace

108 Sun Salutations. 108 planks. 108 chaturangas (pushup). 108 tadasanas (mountain pose: standing tall). A mala is a set of 108 beads together to be used in meditation, prayer, and to focus the mind on a mantra. 108 is a sacred number in Hindu and Buddhist teachings and important in yoga teachings.

The purpose of the Global Mala Yoga for Peace is to unite the global yoga community from every continent, school or approach to form a “mala around the earth” through collective practices based upon the sacred cycle of 108 on Sept. 19th or 20th, Fall Equinox as the yoga world’s offering to further the UN International Peace Day.

Wherever you are this weekend, take a moment on or off the mat to cultivate peace within yourself and bring it forth to the world. As evidenced in the news this past week, we are collectively in need of peace. Peace is part of my yoga mantra for the month and you can read about it in Monthly Mantra September.
