Avani Sukhadia

  • Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner
  • Certified Holistic Health Practitioner
  • Licensed Massage Therapist

“Growing up in a family of physicians and healers,at an early age I developed a natural instinct to care for the health of those around me, and to ease the suffering of those in pain. My family’s deep spirituality and celebration of our Indian heritage, ingrained in me a deep respect and understanding of Hindu/Vedic traditions. These two greatly defining aspects of my life are beautifully expressed in my profession, my passion, Ayurveda.”

Avani grew up living with traditional  Ayurvedic principles at home with her family.  She has been formallystudying and practicing Holistic Medicine since 1998. S has trained with the most respected teachers/gurus in the field including Dr. Vasant Lad, Dr. Mahadavan, Vaidya Ramakant Mishra, Swami Sadashiva Tirtha, and Bharat Shukla.  Avani is a graduate of New York University, The School of Healing Arts, and the American School of Ayurveda.
