(Ep. 42) From Health Crisis to Healing Catalyst with Avital Miller

March 7, 2017

I’m sure we would all like to know all the answers to life, the universe, and well, everything. Considering a lack of information is part of being human, we’ll never know it all. We do have people who can answer many of these existential questions about health, perseverance, and reframing our circumstances, such as today’s guest - Avital Miller.

As Avital practiced her yoga postures during a backpacking trip around the world, people began asking her to teach them. She discovered great joy in sharing something she loved and helping to bring inner peace to many people. In 2004 she became a certified Ananda Yoga Instructor. She immediately started running her own outdoor yoga business, managed yoga and fitness programs at the YMCA, and became a teacher trainer.

Avital has a professional background in dance and has created spiritual dance performances, as well as movement programs, to help people direct their energy to the Divine. Avital received a Dance Major at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, and studied Dance Movement Therapy. She has performed various styles of dance around the world, and is thrilled to now use those skills to help people connect to spirituality.
