Yoga is Self Love

Bhavika

“We didn't rise up from mud; we fell off from the stars”

My first step in entering the deep ocean of wisdom called Yoga came during my Master’s in Food and Nutrition from Mumbai University. In the middle of class in 2009, my professor suddenly said “Hey Bhavika! Why don’t you join the yoga institute and learn yogasanas? This will help your clients along with this Master’s.”

I joined a teacher training certificate program in 2010 at the Yoga Institute and my spiritual journey began with a devotion to teach. Guess what - I got married in 2011 and this was my second step into the world of devotion, commitment, and love. This second step began with full support from my in-laws and husband to carry my yogic pathway with determination to my students across Mumbai, India.

My third step to Yoga was in 2014 when my daughter was born. She became my soul inspiration and expanded my compassion. My loving and caring nature motivated me to carry forward my yogic pathway with divine guidance.

When we become silent & empty, the process of self-realization takes place.

But throughout these years, my goal remained to completely surrender to a higher reality - come what may, under any circumstances, situations or hurdles. I always chant my all-time favourite Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1.33: Maitri, mudita, upeksha, sukh, dukh, punya, apunya, vishyanam bhavanatas citta prasadanam. This means “By constant feeling and thinking of friendliness, compassion, goodwill and equanimity in happiness and misery, virtue and vice, respectively the CHITTA (mind) becomes pure.”

My motto: Sharing knowledge across the world by collective consciousness.
