I look back at May 2018 and it feels like it just happened because I remember that class so vividly, it was a Saturday morning, the class was full of students smiling(and no they were not serious or grumpy 😊) , rolling their mats, making space for one another, I found one corner for myself and sat there waiting for what was going to be life changing for me. Vikas Sir was his cheerful self, I am sure he was passing on his blessings to us even when we were unaware of it.
That one session was enough for me to know this is what was missing in my life.
From that day till today I have not been wanting to not miss a single class as I didn't know what drops of wisdom I would miss.
I started with a goal of this and that poses to achieve but Sir made me realize the true meaning of Yoga, it's just not, 'focusing on my doing but also my being'. It's about peaceful progress and not stressed for a specific pose. It's about consistency, it's about appreciating your little progress everyday.
I am forever grateful and thankful to him to make me achieve my goals without any stress, be it my first Pincha Balance in the middle of the room, my Handstand in the middle of the room, Eka pada sirsasana and many more.
He made every pose accessible by his simplified teaching and explanations. He makes sure he brings out the best in his students.
He creates such a welcoming and transformative environment for his students not just offline but online too that they keep coming back for more.
I am forever thankful and grateful to him as he is the one who taught me to "Appreciate" everything and everyone. I see such a beautiful transformation with that attitude of gratitude in my life.
He made me a better teacher and gave me so much knowledge which I also pass on to my students too.
