#bestofu: Reminiscences from the first edition

Has it ever happened to you that you so want to do something different but couldn’t or still in a state of state about how and when to start or initiate a change. It happened to me a lot of times and one fine day, I just got up and started working towards a change – and I looked at fine tuning or changing ordinary things in life for extraordinary experiences!

#bestofu is one such change that literally #incubated in a living room among three friends – who are way different in what they individually pursue yet so alike for doing something that serves a common purpose – Be and Bring Joy!

#Punam Kashyap, #Mohit Sinha & #yogawithv came up with the idea of #bestofu in a rather nonchalant way. But as they say good ideas make you start working on them – #bestofu exactly did that to us. While the name christening had its share of light arguments, the program roadmap was more or less decided in peace :)

We knew what we enjoy doing, we just had to spread that!

And we started putting together the mandatory stuff – Website, flyers, blogs, social media, logistics etc etc but a spark of doing something out of the kitty, something that we enjoy, made all the mandatory stuff look so interesting and so not tiring.:)

Once upon a time someone said , “where there is a will, there is always a way” :)

And, so came the D-day. Armed with 15 participants, the pioneer #bestofu workshop saw its moments of blossoming friendships, love, lots and lots of #laughter, experiencing #yoga in a joyful way and just being oneself – no strings attached. While, the participants couldn’t resist shaking a leg to the #happy dance; they  did not hesitate to take the #celebrity walk in their own unique styles during the certificate distribution. We left the venue with a hope, with a joy to simply rejoice the simpler things in life.

My motivation for the second edition of #bestofu is just not the encouragement from the workshop day but the after effects of it slowing showing in oneself, family, corporate family and more. I confess – that keeps me super charged to continue to believe in the best that we wish to offer through #bestofu.

#bestofu second edition is due on Saturday, 16th January 2016 at Club Florence, Sec 56, Gurgaon. For more details, visit www.bestofu.org. See You!

Come. Experience. Learn. Spread

Stay Joyful!
