E-RYT 500 / YACEP / Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher / Clarity Breathwork Practitioner

Reiki Master Teacher, Doula, Prenatal Yoga Teacher & LMT

Mother, teacher, friend, bodyworker, lightworker and breathworker: Avani started exploring yoga as a teenager to counter participation in high school competitive sports and stress/anxiety induced lack of sleep. It was then that she began a lifelong love, journey and an endless (on-going) study in wellness. She has participated in yoga teacher trainings throughout the last 18 years while accumulating 8,000+ hours of teaching experience and over 3,000 hours of wellness studies.

Avani is the director of AmaSer; the first of its kind in the Caribbean of Costa Rica. She is the lead trainer at the Caribe Yoga Academy where she directs the yoga teacher training program which is rooted in tradition blended with modern science.  She emphasizes the importance of CommUNITY and Seva (Service) in her teachings and in her practices. Her flows are creative and founded with a strong knowledge of functional anatomy and biomechanics. This allows each student to move in a way that is exactly right for their own unique body. She is a lover of Indian Mythology, Mantra and Indian Devotional Song, Ayurveda, nature and whipping up delicious vegetarian food creations.

Avani enjoys sharing Clarity Breathwork as a means to awaken to our truest and highest potentials and unveil limiting core beliefs. She incorporates Reiki into her yoga classes and offers Reiki Attunements (trainings).  She is trained in and teaches vinyasa flow, yin yoga, MFR, Yin-Vin and Restorative style classes.  All of which are Trauma Informed and Sensitive in appreciation for her training with the TSTSY with the Center for Trauma and Embodiment. When not in training, you can catch her on the public yoga schedule at AmaSer.

She is deeply grateful for her studies and time spent with Indira Kalmbach, Sheela and Sreedevi Bringi, Stephen Cope, Dr. Ray Long, Seane Corn, Jo Phee, Dr. Paul Jerard, Donna Kraft Smith, Ashley Ludman, Jillian Pransky, Dr. Rosy Mann and Dr. Jyothi Bhatt, Erin Casperson, Larissa Carlson, Jack Kornfield, Yoganand Michael Carroll and Sharon Salzberg.  She thanks each for inspiring deep inquiry into her yogic lifestyle.  Avani is currently working toward her MS in Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine with Maharishi University.
