Azi Tavassoli
Founder of Easy Day Yoga

Azi's desire to help people heal and realize their self-worth is deeply rooted in her childhood. As a child, she dreamt of having a place of healing where she could host people and share her many blessings with them. Later in life, she discovered an ancient teaching which allowed her to connect with her childhood calling. Everything came to fruition after she completed a 10-day silent Vipassana meditation. She decided to leave her high stress career and to dedicate her life to the path of yoga and meditation. Azi's vision for Easy Day Yoga was drawn from her professional background in Psychology, French, and Persian literature. It's her belief that one is a yogi not just on the mat, but that mindful practice of yoga must be integrated off the mat and into our daily lives.

“Healing is not what I do,
but who I am.”

Gaia Balbi
Healer, Master Yoga and Meditation Teacher

Gaia is a Yoga Healer who shares the wisdom of the Yoga tradition with the intention to heal and awaken herself and the sincere practitioners to the truth of who we are so we can create the live we are longing to experience. She is a 500-hour certified master Yoga and meditation teacher, energy healing practitioner, End of Life Doula, regressionist, and overall Spiritual guide who believes in the importance of a wholistic approach to self-care and healing. Gaia’s Yoga journey began 15 years ago practicing Bikram, Ashtanga and Baptiste Yoga. In 2012 she took her first 200 hours teacher training and from there many more trainings including Vinyasa, Bhakti flow and Yin Yoga. Her spiritual path took her to Rishikesh, India, the birth place of Yoga where she completed her advanced 300 hours teacher training and her Master certification in the Himalayan Kundalini tradition and Tantric practices where she had a true spiritual awakening. The potency of the practices of this tradition awakened a calling within her to share them beyond the mat. That is when she became an End of life Doula, an energy healer, and a regressionist. As she devotes herself to the healing path of evolution, within herself continues to grow a deeper desire to share the supreme practices of the Yoga tradition for the healing and evolution of the collective.
