Hi! My Name is Khyati (pronounced kya-thi)
I was born in India, grew up in Louisiana and live in the DC area with my husband and two daughters. I am an infant massage instructor certified 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.
I teach baby massage because I am passionate about the transformational power of massaging your baby. I believe all babies, regardless of race, socioeconomic background, or sex, deserve the gift of massage. And I envision a world where mothers and babies feel loved, connected, healthy, and strong through the power of loving touch.
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.
I am also passionate about: social justice & equity, spirituality, dance, service, family, yoga, natural and holistic living, travel, friends, meditation, and chocolate, of course!

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.
