On June 21st was the international day of yoga.
An important day to awaken consciousness about what yoga is.
More than a physical class of postures (asanas), more than breaths, more than a philosophy, there is much to investigate behind all that … I have been in the world of yoga for more than 10 years ago and as far as I realize everything I have to learn and practice, from the asanas perspective (everything that I have to work with each one of them, how and why, what parts of the body are involved and what are their benefits and contraindications)
On the other hand if we analyze from the Raja yoga principles we have the Yamas and Niyamas, the pranayamas, pratyahara, dharana, dhayana and finally the samadhi, a life dedicated to the search of the supra conscience.
In the end, however, the initiatives of the International Yoga Day were two, on the one hand my personal initiative to create a video with different people, practitioners and teachers who participated and gave their opinion and point of view on what is yoga for them.
People from different parts of the world but united for the same purpose.

What is for you YOGA?
On the other hand almost emerged from nothing and pushing from a friend I said;
“Hiii, contained with me for the initiative of a Open day free, to commemorate the International Yoga Day”.
The truth that was a superbeautiful event, where in a full yoga class each of us we teaching 15 minutes so different teacher we share our passion during the classes.
I left the previous savasana because I was going out for the other class and I was in a total relaxation state, but it is true that perhaps if I had been more conscious maybe I would have become much more nervous, in case I started my class after Sara and at first was quiet, but there were a moment where the panic took over me.
This was because I saw that the people did not follow the rhythm of the class, maybe because the sound wasnt good, or because I could not show him in surya namaskar or because he did not understand me or I did not explain myself quite well, whatever happen … and I said “OMG what I´m doing over here “… as soon as I saw myself at that moment, I took a deep breathing and I said do not worry Gema everything will be fine … and I went back to breathe and continue…so I let´it go the though so in that exactly moment the whole world gradually rejoined in the flow of the rhythm of Surya Namaskar .
With these two initiatives of “un-interested” forms I collaborated with my grain of sand in the world of yoga and to make people more aware and consistent with their world and with those around them.
Great moments and intense moments.
Thank you Universe for those opportunities for personal growth.
