A Report on International Day of Yoga, Madrid, Spain

denise_scottoThis auspicious day was organized in Madrid by the Indian embassy and 12 Yoga Schools, including Brahma Kumaris.

In the morning, the inauguration took place with the ambassador of India, Mr Vikram Misri, and the newly elected mairess of the city, Manuela Carmena. 150 volunteers from the 12 schools were present to help all the participants.
Around 1500 people gathered in one of the main squares in Madrid, Plaza Colón, to practise a master class from a beautiful video prepared by the Indian government.

Bro. Yogesh from Turkey was our speaker.

The preparation, a few months ahead, was an opportunity to have meetings at the Indian Embassy together with the ambassador, his team and the 12 schools. Over the time, a very good relation has been established and will probably give more fruits in the future.
