Summer Solstice 2016
In the northern hemisphere, June 20 officially rings in the beginning of summer. Derived from two Latin words, sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still), the word solstice actually means “sun standing still.” A solstice occurs twice each year, when the movement of the sun’s path (as seen from Earth) comes to a stop before it reverses direction. In June and December, the solstice happens on a date between the 20th and the 23rd.
The summer solstice is the longest day of the year. It contains more hours between sunrise and sunset than any other day, presenting us with ample opportunities for warm-weather activities and simple summer fun. After the solstice, the days grow shorter as we move toward the autumnal equinox in September, during which light and dark fall into exquisite balance once more.
The solstice is an auspicious time to honor the sun and allow the welcoming arms of nature to embrace you. During the summer solstice, it’s easy to live from a place of interconnectedness with nature.
It is considered auspicious to practice Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskaras) at the time of summer solstice, to connect with and build upon the enlivening solar energies that are pulsating within us now. Get up at dawn, face east, and do 108 repetitions of Surya Namaskar sequence. If that seems a bit ambitious, or you’re feeling rushed (or just tuckered out), simply do one reverent bow to honor the sun.
Join Sharan for a 2 hour Sun Salutation session followed by 25 minutes guided deep relaxation technique (Yoga Nidra) also known as Yogic sleep.
Please feel free to drop in at any time during the course of this invigorating class. Join us anytime between 7 and 9AM, and feel free to leave at any time if time is a constraint.
Happy Summer Solstice to all!!!
