Rukmini Vijayakumar Instagram - Day 29 #100daysofinnergrowth Whenever I take the time to notice the small details of my surroundings, it reminds me of the beauty that I’m surrounded by. I’m not talking about things that we normally consider “beautiful” - sunsets and flowers. Yes perhaps those too, but also parts of our world that we never stop to consider. A trail of ants, the way a fabric falls, the nerves in my own body, the way wood remains for centuries, the mysteries of electronics…. The list is never ending. If I think and truly consider these things…. Notice everything around me, it helps me slow down. I also realise that this inherent beauty in the world that surrounds me …. Is something one cannot explain… Going to try to find moments to do this today… 😊 I wrote about this in my book “Finding Shiva” A poem from my book is in the second picture….

Rukmini Vijayakumar Instagram – Just dancing around while shooting for @theraadhakalpamethod online program 😊 

Took a break and improvised to this. These dance reels that you see are usually never choreographed. I play the music and dance… that’s about it 😊

So I have no idea what I’ve danced once it’s done.

Rukmini Vijayakumar Instagram – Happy birthday to the best coach ever! @somyarout2806 

Today was my day to try to get him to do some partnering… and after several failed attempts 🤣😂🤣 and many laughs… we have something to show! 

My Bharatanatyam dance teachers passed away when I was about 21 years old. I’ve been pretty much on my own since then. Learning and training … 

I’ve had some wonderful teachers of contemporary/ modern dance/ ballet at the conservatory, and once I was back in india after that, it’s been a long solo journey. Although I’ve always had guidance from different sources, I haven’t really had a consistent eye viewing my physical progress for a very long time. 

To have someone who watches and pushes you is invaluable! And I’m thankful to have Somya ❤️ every sportsperson, everyone who moves for a profession… needs this. A coach!
