The Erasmus + project in Bakuriani, Georgia, was a wonderful experience where young people from six countries came together to explore the theme of “Yoga for Peace.” Bringing together young people from six different countries, this program provided a platform for discussing not only pressing global issues but also delving into the inner realms of personal harmony through yoga. Surrounded by majestic mountains the setting served as a perfect backdrop for self-reflection and connection with others. Held in a breathtaking location surrounded by nature’s beauty, the program was not just about discussing global issues but also about finding inner harmony through yoga.
The program went beyond the superficial discussions of world affairs, diving deep into the holistic integration of mind, body, heart, and soul through the practice of yoga. Through various workshops, sessions, and activities, participants explored the profound connection between inner peace and outer harmony, understanding that true peace begins within oneself.
One of the most enriching aspects of the program was the opportunity to interact with diverse individuals, each bringing their unique cultural perspectives and experiences to the table. Through lively discussions, participants challenged stereotypes, celebrated differences, and forged bonds that transcended borders.
During the program, we had the chance to connect with each other, share our cultures, and break down stereotypes. The peaceful setting helped us delve into the practice of yoga, which taught us that true peace starts from within.
As we bonded over workshops and activities, we formed friendships that felt like they could transcend any boundaries. The memories we created together will stay with us, reminding us of the importance of understanding, empathy, and unity.
Leaving the program, we carried with us not only new friendships but also a deeper appreciation for the values of peace and harmony. We know that the lessons we learned will continue to guide us as we strive to make the world a better place.
