An Introduction from Lavanga:

Born and raised in Texas, Lavanga’s spiritual quest began at 8 years old, when she started to question the priests and nuns at her Catholic school.  At 15, she internally began exploring other faith traditions and at 18 came across metaphysics, tarot and astrology.  She eventually found her home in Gaudiya Vaishnavism, a 5,000 year old Bhakti Yoga lineage. She has been a practicing priestess in the tradition since 2005.  In 2011 she began offering classes in the Bhagavad Gita, sharing kirtan, hosting Vedic fire ceremonies and representing her tradition in interfaith communities throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  

An Usui Reiki practitioner since 1994, Lavanga graduated from Dallas’s first massage school in 1995. After taking yoga teacher training in 2012, she helped open the Atma Bhakti Center in Dallas offering classes and wellness sessions. She was on the board of the DFW Free Day of Yoga, and co-founded World Bhakti which produced Texas’ first Kirtan & Bhakti Yoga Festival in early 2020. 

Her interest in yoga, Ayurveda and the philosophy they are based on has led her to Jyotish, or Vedic Astrology.  She is certified by and continues to study with the American Academy of Vedic Arts and Science.  What excites her most about Vedic Astrology is how beautifully and elegantly it ties together everything she has learned and practiced for over 30 years.  Most recently she has begun writing regularly, and if all goes as she envisions, will be publishing her first book, “Ekadasi – Fasting with the Moon” in 2024.

Lavanga currently lives in Dallas, Texas with her husband of three decades and 2-½ cats and her current Jyotish/Vedic Astrology offering is called L.I.G.H.T. – Living in the Guidance of your Highest Truth.
