About Your Yoga Instructor:
Avery Kalapa (they, them) has a huge crush on life! They are a Certified Iyengar Yoga teacher, community weaver, and queer and trans wellness organizer; eRYT500, YACEP, BFA. Avery has over 20 years of experience in yoga; their approach is rooted in anti-oppression: yoga for inner healing and collective liberation.
They love creating affirming healing spaces that don’t require assimilation.
All people, especially folks who have been left out of or turned off by mainstream yoga spaces should have access to the revitalizing nourishment of deeply informed, classical yoga that goes beyond fitness.
Celebrated for their enthusiasm, accessibility, and depth of technique, their teaching reflects deep gratitude for the Iyengar Lineage.
They are a creative, rigorous, playful, and compassionate teacher who offers a vast knowledge of integrative functional anatomy, stability, and embodied philosophy that empowers their students to experience tangible positive transformation in body-mind, and consciousness.
Avery is involved in various yoga equity projects. They’re also a gardener, artist, and parent. Avery is a white, queer, trans, nonbinary settler grateful to live on unceded Tiwa land, in Albuquerque NM.
