Ava Irani, Your Teacher

Founder of Spanda School & Functional Spirituality

Ava first came into contact with physical asana and became an avid practitioner in 2008, while studying philosophy at USYD. She started attending long form spiritual retreat in 2011 in Australia, Thailand and India, and soon after started on the teaching team of both Agama and Hridaya yoga schools abroad. After 1000’s of hours of yoga teacher training, retreats and study programs, she opened her studio Spanda School in South Fremantle. In 2016, Ava attended her first Yin Yoga Teacher Training and she has made Yin a cornerstone of her silent retreats and studio classes thereafter. In 2018 she offered a 200 hour Yin Yoga and Meditation Teacher Training with Danielle in Greece, amongst numerous Hatha and Yin teacher trainings in Bali and Fremantle. Now in 2020, she has launched her new program and podcast called “Functional Spirituality”, aimed at integrating profound yogic experience into daily living. She lives in Hamilton Hill near Fremantle with her Fiancé Jarred, of Kommunity Brew, and their pet Honey.
