Hi! My Name is Khyati
I was born in India, grew up in Louisiana and live in the DC area with my husband and daughter. I am a certified infant massage instructor by the International Association of Infant Massage. Massage is provided to mothers and babies in India for the first three months and has been practiced in my family for generations.
Most days you can find me: Practicing yoga and meditation for self-care
I am mostly known for: Adventure! Care and compassion for others
I love serving the world by: volunteering working on my own growth, and helping my friends and family
The things I am most passionate about in life are: social justice & equity, spirituality, dance, service, family, yoga, natural and holistic living, travel, friends, meditation, and chocolate!
I support parents who need help with their crying baby or their baby with gas/colic or digestion issues or breastfeeding challenges in a natural way.
I teach parents infant massage to help calm their baby.
I serve moms and dads who are looking to bond with their baby and give their baby the best possible start in life.
When I'm not busy working on Vyana Infant Massage:
I am consulting in community development, spending time with my toddler, or exploring my city.
We love to travel and our travels include: Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia, India, South Africa, Grenada, Hawaii, Mexico, France, Greece, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Italy, Iceland.

Vyana Infant Massage was born in May 2018. Vyana ("outward moving air") is one of the 5 energy subdivisions of Prana, the life force in each of us. Vyana is the energy that permeates the whole body, governing the nerves, veins, joints, and muscles. Regular massage can help support Vyana so that one can experience greater harmony, balance, and coordination. The short term and long term benefits of infant massage to both the baby and the caregiver are plentiful. I can't wait to join you on your path to giving your child a happy, healthy, and compassionate experience for a lifetime of love.
