My name is Keri Mangis, E-RYT200, CAP.


My Journey

I have often tried to insist that I remain a certain way—defined by a particular label, role, or growth path.

The universe has always decided differently.

In whatever form my work takes, I aim to encourage readers, seekers, listeners, and clients to dive deeply into their own self. Find out who they really are—underneath the labels and the identities, what I call our "skins".

My background is in yoga, Ayurveda, Buddhism, and a little bit of a whole bunch of other modalites. They've all shaped me, and they've all taught me more about who I am. Yet, none of them define me in totality, and that's exactly the way I like it!

Society makes room for people to change. But it doesn’t understand or make much room for people like me — people who make a lifestyle out of transformation. 

So, I set out to fill in that gap, and support those of us who see transformation as an interconnected part of the human journey. Whether you're breaking down, going through a crisis, sorting through your beliefs and conditionings, or ready to rebirth a new "you" into the world, there's something here for you.

My Background

I began my spiritual journey in 2002. Since then, I have acquired a diverse range of certifications and experiences in various modalities of study. In the realm of yoga, I hold an E-RYT200 certification. During the years I taught yoga, I established a registered school and provided comprehensive training and certification for students. Additionally, I organized and led retreats, workshops, and 200-hour yoga trainings. I have delved deeper into my yoga practice through Advanced Yoga Teacher Training with renowned instructors, exploring aspects such as chanting, Tantra, yoga nidra, mantra, and meditation. Furthermore, I have received specialized Yin Yoga certification with Sarah Powers and engaged in advanced trainings under the guidance of esteemed teachers such as Dr. David Frawley, Dr. Judith Laster, Russell Paul, Rod Stryker, and Donna Farhi.

In the realm of Ayurveda, I have dedicated extensive time to immersive study, earning a Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner (CAP) certificate through a year-long, intensive program at Kanyakumari Ayurveda and Yoga Wellness Center. I have also completed 300 hours of study with the American Institute of Vedic Studies, obtaining certifications as a Certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant and an Advanced Yoga and Ayurveda Educator. Through a supervised internship, I gained practical experience in identifying, diagnosing, and providing Ayurvedic treatment protocols. Additionally, I have undergone Certified Panchakarma Technician Training, acquiring expertise in treatments such as shirodhara, abhyanga, garshana, lepas, and more.

Moreover, my exploration extends beyond yoga and Ayurveda. I have obtained certifications and studied a wide range of modalities, including herbal medicine, energy work (such as Healing Touch and Reiki), subtle anatomy (chakras, koshas, and meridians), aromatherapy, color therapy, gem therapy, mantra therapy, tai chi, shamanism, and alchemy. The breadth and depth of my study have empowered my approach to wellness, self-discovery, service, and community engagement.


"There is always something to learn when I come here...[Keri has] taken the time to do the work that most of us are still procrastinating on. The deep dive into one’s self to listen, accept and learn.

~Jodian Marie Thomas, MS, Bsc, Asc


"...It is no surprise to me that she continues to share her personal journey of transformation with others through Ayurveda, yoga, writing, speaking and group facilitation. Keri is not only caring and compassionate, but she also truly wants to make a difference for others. I saw this dedication to improving lives through her thorough research and attention in creating the client plan and in her connection in supporting those clients. Rather than taking things at face value, she delves under the surface to truly understand. Then she brings her voice out from a place of strong integrity and with a mission to empower others on their own journeys."

~ Jamie Durner, Whole Person Practitioner


"Keri's calming, compassionate and knowledgeable approach has been a valuable guide for me. As a yoga and meditation teacher, she truly walks the talk. Keri faces the same challenges we all do in staying grounded in our busy lives and balancing the demands and pleasures of family, relationships and work. She showed me how yoga can not only help manage those elements of our lives, but enrich them by helping us practice to be more present in every moment."
