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

I am the owner of Curiosa Publishing, LLC.

I have been a spiritual teacher for nearly two decades, training both yoga teachers and students. I completed two certifications for a total of 600 hours with the Vedic Institute, headed by Dr. David Frawley, one of Ayurveda’s premier modern-day teachers. I followed that up with a year-long, in-person study of Ayurveda and Ayurvedic bodywork at Kanyakumari Yoga and Ayurveda Wellness Center, where I received my Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner (CAP)certificate. I then spent several years establishing diets, creating herbal formulas, and providing balancing bodywork sessions for my clients.

Today, I am an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant, offering consultations and support for women and men looking for a more holistic approach on their journey to wholeness.

In addition, I am a speaker and workshop provider, as well as an author and freelance writer.

My written work has appeared in the Star Tribune, Elephant Journal (a top 50 writer), Addicted to Success, The Good Men Project, Mindful Word, Thought Catalog, The Edge Magazine, Essential Wellness, The Sunlight Press, Grown and Flown, Rebelle Society, and others.

My first book, “Embodying Soul: A Return to Wholeness,” won several awards, including the 2020 IPA award for Mind, Body & Spirit and the 2020 Readers’ Favorite Gold Medal in Non-Fiction Spiritual and Supernatural.


"...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."

"Keri is an expert in her work. Initially, I met Keri who was my yoga instructor. Keri was personable and professional and made me feel welcome. She has a deep passion for everything she does. I strongly recommend Keri!"

~ Lisa Carmichael

"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."
