C oinciding with the Summer Solstice, this Sunday is the International Day of Yoga. An event during which millions of people will go on their mats to enjoy and share the magic trip that happens each time we practice.
This celebration hasn't been made by a big corporation with commercial interests, as you could think. On the contrary, it was India's prime minister who addressed the United Nations in 2014 to suggest that the global community should find a day to honor this tradition. Read this fragment of his beautiful speech, you will love it:
"Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature".
I feel fortunate to be able to do what I love. Yoga is my passion and as a path of conscious evolution it has given me the tools to continue growing in Light. My yogini's itinerary is very long and you can glimpse various influences both in my practice and teaching. The classes that I create are not the same as a year ago and they will keep changing because the ardent fire of my heart demands that I update constantly in order to stay harmonious with the needs of the Earth and the Cosmos.
With a mix o humility and pride I sustain my original intention of sharing simply yoga with the maximum light, purity and grace. Full of gratitude towards everything and everyone for making this possible. Honoring all teachers and the multiplicity of disciplines that give form to this tradition,
