For me, Panchayoga (meditation + yoga) with Vikas Shenoy has been an opportunity to rise up to the next higher plane of being, thinking and doing. When my friend, Yoganand, recommended Panchayoga, I was still debating whether learning yoga on Zoom would be effective - But, after a few sessions, I was impressed and that conviction took root over the course of the year.
When we think of yoga, we visualize those complex poses that we would have seen experienced yogis do with ease. Often, it's easy to get lost in either a quick fix craze for those poses or give up too soon. Contrarily, Vikas instills in us the words of writer Samuel Johnson: “What we hope ever to do with ease, we must first learn to do with diligence”.
Vikas’ speciality is how he approaches teaching: he brings a lot of energy and knowledge to the sessions and most importantly he is mindful in educating us to be inward: inward in our ability to focus and notice minute progress we make peacefully and consistently, be it tadasana or deceitfully simple malasana or any other complex pose that we fancy or simply stay clutter-free in our heads for a a few extra minutes. By being inward, I am able to cherish every seemingly small, yet significant change, to my body and mind -- on and off the mat. These changes are the foundational building blocks of what's ahead.
For a self-record, since joining, I have not missed a single class 6x/week. A huge part of that is being constantly encouraged to notice myself, focus on the present and put in my best for that day. It's always about the journey and this yoga/meditation journey is one that I need to travel lifelong.
