8 Reasons You Need Sun in Your Life

by Shawna Schenk | January 9, 2017 6:34 pm

Living on this Earth, we all know that the sun, well, he is everything. He is our life force and he is what keeps us (and all living things) alive.  I truly feel that the sun’s importance in this world is one topic that universally binds us all: regardless of what language you speak or culture you come from: the purely logical  scientist is going to defend the sun as  strongly as the hippy yogi who dances Sun Salutations every morning.


Science has proved that the winter time blues are real: seasonal depression affects many people. There is an energy of the light of the sun that fulfills us and makes us feel happier on days that are bright than days that are gray.


“Atapa Snana” is the yogic[1] phrase for the healing[2] science of sun bathing. Ancient yogis and civilizations throughout time have honored the sun and its healing benefits against numerous illness, mentally and physically, inspiring us to (no pun intended) shine and be our brightest self.




The answer for the logical scientist:

The sun’s rays:


The answer for the hippie yogi:




If you live in the part of the hemisphere of the world where it is wintertime, you may be missing the sun and his bright, inspiring (both scientifically and spirituality) energy. This is the reason why the founder of San Diego Yoga Festival,[3] Shawna Schenk, decided to offer a 4-day yoga festival in sunny California in the middle of winter.


San Diego is sunny most of the year, and while others throughout the world may be shoveling snow or bundled in coats and hats, San Diego is still shining bright. The anticipated temperature for the weekend of the festival is bright and sunny in the high 60’s. Shawna wanted to share all that is the gift of the yoga and do it under our burning sun which is a frequent gift in  her home town of San Diego.


Come get solar powered feeling the spiritual and scientific benefits of father Sun during the San Diego Yoga Festival.[4] Classes will be held indoors and outdoors on the beach and at one of the most epic places in the world to watch the sunset, Sunset Cliffs. Classes will even be in the ocean with offerings of surf and swimming classes in the Pacific.

Your 1 or 3 day ticket gets you access to nonstop classes (over 120 of them); you can also enjoy post conferneces taught on Monday on Sunset Cliffs led by master teachers. Yoga festival’s always attract mindful and sunny people, so come ready to soak in the positive vibes and rays of sunny people as well. To encourage you more to walk away from the cold and hop on a plane, Shawna is offering you a ticket to the sun for $108 off: use promo code YogaDigest to claim this present. [5]
