108 sun salutations in Castelgrande

It's the longest day of the year, the brightest. And it is exactly during the Summer solstice, on June 21st, that the International Day of Yoga is celebrated all around the world.
Traditionally, yoga students practice 108 sun salutations (Surya Namaskar), a sequence of simple body movements that follow the rhythm of the breath, creating awareness, energy, transformation. Thanks to the sort of waves that are created inside the body and the mind, thoughts will become calmer and clearer. For the first time it will be possible to welcome the Summer greeting the sun and breathing all together in Castelgrande: a unique opportunity to practice in an exceptional setting!

The event will take place on the external court. Here some teachers will guide the participants in this experience open to all those who are curious and attracted to the idea of repeating 108 sun salutations or even just some of them. Bring your mat: the attendance is free. 
The place can be reached by foot in 5 minutes from Piazza Collegiata or via Orico. Otherwise you can take the lift from Piazza del Sole. Access by vehicles is not allowed.
