Caitlin Casella

Avita Bansee is a yoga teacher specializing in pre- and postnatal. The birth of her children and continued study in yoga philosophy, anatomy, pranayama and biomechanics inform her teaching and self-practice. Avita's group classes are centered on breath, strength and active rest while maintaining a sense of playfulness. Her work for the last seven years includes training private clients, aiding them with pain management, birth recovery or general well being through yoga and exercise.

In addition to teaching yoga, Avita has a Masters in Political Science from the New School of Social Research and is a passionate advocate of social justice, feminism and anti-racist activism within and beyond the wellness industry.

You can find out more about Avita and her work at avitayoga.com and on Instagram @yogawithavita. Check out her September workshop with Eleni and Liz on The Connective, Earth, Fire, Water. And find out more about her collaboration with Tejal Yoga and Social Justice at tejalyoga.com
