Trudy Collings, BA, RYT, AHP, CMP was born in England but raised in Vero Beach, Florida. In 2008, she graduated cum laude from the University of Florida with a double major in British Literature & Anthropology. In 2009, her inquisitive & wanderlust nature brought her to San Francisco, CA & she eventually landed in her first yoga teacher training in 2011. From there, she learned of Ayurveda & was instantly in love with the science. By the fall of 2011, she was enrolled at the California College of Ayurveda. This science encompassed everything she was looking for: yoga, traditional ecological knowledge, cultural understanding & a holistic approach to well-being. Today, Trudy is an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner, Herbalist, Ayurvedic Massage & Body Therapist, yoga teacher & co-founder of PAAVANI Ayurveda. What she loves most about offering Ayurvedic Body Therapies to people is the meditative experience it offers & the healing connection she gives & receives from each client. While not immersed in Ayurveda & Yoga services, Trudy relishes spending time with her partner, Brandt, & their two dogs & kitty cat. She loves all things Phish, Grateful Dead & Bluegrass related as well as hikes in nature, traveling, cooking & time with her beloved family & friends.
