Breathe, Sister: Breath Work and Mindfulness with Ava Johanna

Ava Johanna believes wellness tools should be available to everyone. Originally a “selfish journey” she realized that access to mindfulness, whole and healthy foods, yoga and meditation were privileges that she’d like to make more accessible through her platform and advocacy. We talk about consumer activism and how information and access is everything.

Ava is a celebrity meditation and movement instructor, host of The Alchemized Life Podcast, and content creator based out of Los Angeles, California. Whether on the podcast or on the mat, Ava works with individuals to activate their soul's purpose, create powerful daily routines, and elevate every area of their life simply by adjusting their mindset through movement and fully embodying the energy of empowerment and confidence. She has been featured on major wellness publications such as MindBodyGreen, Wanderlust's 35 Under 35, Life&Style Magazine, and Yoga Journal.

We dig into identity, mental models and helpful practices that you can incorporate in your own life. Ava shares tips for beginner equal ratio breath work and engaging your parasympathetic nervous system.

I love Ava’s encouragement to create mindfully and intentionally and to approach every relationship with grace, compassion and empathy.
