June 21st: 108 Sun Salutations at the Foce

Friday June 21st, INTERNATIONAL DAY OF YOGA and Summer Solstice, from 20.00 to 21.30 approximately, at the Cassarate river mouth
This event is public and free, offered by Yoga Roof in collaboration with the city of Lugano. At the Parco Ciani, on the new wooden deck at the Cassarate river mouth. The Surya Namaskars are going to be led by the teachers of Yoga Roof.
From 8pm until sunset we will create a collective ritual, diving in the sun salutation mantra and movement after movement we will connect deeply with our breath, moving inwards, letting the joy and the gratitude for the sun and the Summer emerge.
This practice will be lead gently, so all levels are welcome! In this wonderful setting we will see the sun go down and the moon rise on the last salutations…
IMPORTANT! you can practice the Sun Salutation version that you prefer: step or jump back, knees up or down, cobra or upward dog… do it how ever you feel like and rest whenever you want!! It is not a marathon…
This event is 100% free.
Bring your own mat and heart to salute the beginning of this new season!
Mi butto, mi getto
tra le braccia del vento
con le mani ci faccio una vela
e tutti i sensi… li sento
Più accesi più vivi,
come se fosse un’antenna sul tetto
che riceve segnali
da un mondo perfetto.
Sento il mare dentro a una conchiglia… estate,
l’eternità è un battito di ciglia.
Jovanotti – Estate Lyrics
