Hi I am Bavani!
My passion to study and practice Holistic Nutrition and Yoga started about 12 years ago when I was suffering from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and after realizing that allopathic treatments were not helping me.
It was in 2011 that I started my training in Holistic Nutrition and Yoga to know more about human health and wellbeing. I learned so much about digestion, what can impair the function of the gut, the brain-gut connection, and so much more.
The knowledge I gained through the training and its application to my life has significantly improved my health condition and helped me adopt a more holistic lifestyle. This inspired me to start my health and wellness practice (Holistic Nutrition and Yoga with Bavani) based in Markham, Ontario, Canada.
After teaching Yoga for 3.5 years, I wanted to experience the deeper aspects of Yoga. This took me halfway around the world to the Isha Yoga Centre located in Coimbatore, India There, I received a 5-month (1750+hrs) intense Teacher Training Program in Classical Hatha Yoga, under the tutelage of the renowned Yogi and Mystic, Sadhguru. This transformative process was a life-changing experience for me on many levels, bringing a greater level of equanimity and freedom within. It also deepened my understanding of Yoga as a profound science for enhancing one's physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being.
I offer online Nutritional Consultation and Classical Hatha Yoga Programs (online and in-person)
I have been conducting workshops and private and weekly sessions in Classical Hatha Yoga over the last 7 years.
In health and well-being,
