The seed of PAAVANI Ayurveda was planted between Leah Klatt & Trudy Collings during their Herbalism Apprenticeship, at the California College of Ayurveda. It was then that the women discovered their common passion for developing skin & body care products that carry on the tradition of Ayurveda. They decided that they wanted to share this with the world. PAAVANI was born a few years later in 2014, when the women opened an office space in Grass Valley, CA, to offer Traditional Ayurvedic Body Therapies. It was at this time that the first products in their line were developed- the Aromatherapy Spritzers & Body Oils. The women intended to create dosha specific products that they could use in their therapies & further extend out to their community. Co-owners, Leah & Trudy, bow to the inspiring forces of the community in which they are blessed to call home. This healing, energetic center in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, is home to the sacred Yuba River, vast horizons of wild, natural beauty & creative people who influence them daily. The women give thanks to the powerful energy of this community & the support that it has offered to their creation of PAAVANI. Furthermore, the women seek inspiration & guidance through yoga & its philosophy, song, dance, shamanic journeying & travels around the world. PAAVANI would not be the thriving business it is today without the help of these awakening forces.
