Bhavik developed an interest in yoga and meditation at the age of 11, when he was in Grade 7 of primary school in Fiji. His curiosity led him to learn more about the ‘self’ through systems of Pranic Healing, Reiki and attending various yoga camps and courses. He has been practicing yoga and meditation for over 12 years.
In 2013, Bhavik co-founded QUT’s Meditation and Yoga Club (MY Time) which has delivered more than 400 yoga and meditation sessions to over 2500 students. The club’s sustainable model of operation continues to provide sessions at QUT on a weekly basis at nominal cost. Bhavik has experienced the benefits of yoga and meditation first hand, from a physical, psychological and emotional perspective, having been introduced to these practices from a very young age. He draws great inspiration from Dalai Lama’s quote that “If every 8-year-old is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation”. Bhavik is passionate about making the knowledge of yoga accessible to one and all, for it to be incorporated in everyday life.
He looks forward to sharing at the Conference his journey within, and how yoga continues to add value to the quality of his life. With a legal background, Bhavik is a Human Resources professional, mentor, coach and a yogi in corporate disguise. He has also been a volunteer for the Art of Living Foundation for over 11 years.
