TAGUIG CITY, Philippines – Certified Calm has partnered once again with Global Mala Project to organize the biggest gathering of yoga enthusiasts in the Philippines, for a full day of sharing positive energy last September 30, 2018 at Blue Leaf McKinley.
For its 11 years of running the event, the Global Mala Project has been executing these events for yogis and yoginis all around the world with the objective of forming a symbolic mala (prayer beads) spanning the globe. The purpose being to channel and project healing energy in a world now more divided and hurting than ever in recent years. A highly ambitious cause where little by little they work towards, by donating all the proceeds of the event to a specially chosen cause for the year.
This edition of the Global Mala Project has chosen Voice of the Free as their beneficiary. Founded in 1991 Voice of the Free is a non-profit organization that fight for the rescue, rehabilitation and prevention of women and children who are victims and/or at risk for human trafficking, exploitation and modern slavery [learn more about them here] . With a collective attendance of 600 individuals, Global Mala was successful in raising funds for Voice of the Free.
In a sense, you could say that there are endless possibilities with yoga. From increasing full-body awareness and promoting mindfulness through various poses and synchronized breath work, as well as in the practice of living, it makes possible the achievement of harmony in every aspect of each of our lives, despite the chaos of a fast-paced, modern, lifestyle. True to the practice’s mantra: Namaste (meaning, “I honor the divine that exists in you that exists in me, as well”), yoga is a practice that is not only promotive of development and restorative for the self, but for others, as well.
However, much like many other radical changes in lifestyle, how and where to start with practicing mindfully and living sustainably is often one of the first, major roadblocks, anyone encounters. But with diligence, openness and eagerness to learn, you surpass this roadblock and everything else begins to flow naturally, much like how your meditations work to open up blocks in your chi (energy).
