About the Teachers

Avery Kalapa (they/them)

trans + queer affirming Iyengar Yoga

Avery is a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (L2), community weaver at Sadhana Support Collective, and queer + trans wellness organizer; eRYT500, YACEP, BFA, with over 25 years experience. Celebrated for their enthusiasm, commitment to accessibility, counterculture spirituality, devotion, and depth of technique, Avery’s teaching uplifts inner healing rooted in collective liberation. They believe 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, without having to code switch or assimilate in order to practice. They center integrative functional anatomy, nervous system regulation and stability to support counter-culture yoga lovers to break the burn out cycle, be nourished, strong, and spiritually powerful without bypassing the wisdom of their body and lived experience. Avery’s also a community organizer, artist, parent, gardener. They are a white, neurodiverse, queer, trans, nonbinary human grateful to live in unceded Tiwa land, Albuquerque NM.

Kiki Williams (she/they)

Yoga, Meditation, and Nature Connection for QTBIPOC

Kiki is a black, queer teacher, meditator, yogi, and dancer from Los Angeles, CA, unceded Tongva land. They’re a 500hr-RYT and has facilitated yoga spaces for QT folx for several years. Kiki also finds deep resonance with the Theravadan Buddhist meditation practice she’s had for the past 8 years. With this practice, Kiki’s facilitation has slowly oriented over time towards the integration of more stillness- creating the space to access all of the senses to experience this generous, magical world we inhabit. Both a movement and mindfulness practitioner, they weave together these modalities to support a fully-embodied approach to both individual and collective healing. To Kiki, healing looks like remembering, feeling fully, being curious about dark corners, remembering again, and mining the heart for the wells of love that reside there. She is propelled by the belief that all people have the innate right to thrive, experience unmitigated joy, and to be free, beginning with the freedom we each have the capacity to feel in and through our own bodies and minds.
