The g modes which occur in γ Doradus stars, allow to reveal the innermost structure of stars on the lower main sequence, which is not even possible for the Sun. With four years of nearly-continuous photometry from Kepler, we are finally in a good position to apply asteroseismology to γ Dor stars. In particular several analysis (Bedding et al. 2015; Van Reeth et al. 2015) have demonstrated the possibility to detect non-uniform period spacings, which a theoretical study (Bouabid et al. 2013) has predicted to be directly related to rotation. Based on the non uniformity of their period spacings, we provide a univoque relation between an observable and the internal rotation, which applies all over the instability strip of γ Dors when the stars are too rapidly rotating to present rotational splittings.
