About Our Team
OWNER, BEING WELL YOGA
It was a bit of a journey to get here. When I was a young girl, I loved movement; I did gymnastics, ballet and jazz and dreamed of being a dancer. Or a librarian; I loved to read. So what happened when I grew up? I went to college, got a BA in Spanish and MBA with a concentration in Marketing, and spent the next 25 years working for large companies in marketing and strategic planning. I had a great career, filled with stress and challenge. I always, always, taught some kind of physical fitness class on the side. Aerobics (complete with leg warmers and headset microphone!), Pilates and personal training. Then, seeking balance, I found Yoga.
And so it was.
Teaching a class before or after work, putting in a full workday and then dinner with my growing family, and a little more work before falling into bed. I was always seeking balance, and never quite grasping it. I did eventually leave my corporate job, yet still split my time between teaching Yoga and marketing consulting. I got to see how a lot of different companies worked. Once, observing a heated meeting I remarked to my client, “You folks could use some Yoga.” And that started me thinking…
I was aware that Yoga was changing me. I lost my temper less. I weathered storms at work without drama. I worked toward solutions, rather than worrying about who was right and who was wrong. I was also seeing changes in my students—more vibrant health, less stress, more joy.
So I finally took the leap and started Being Well Yoga. I still love teaching at Yoga studios, and I know we can create change by taking Yoga into the workplace. I love watching what happens when a workplace implements a regular Yoga class program. The employees come in visibly wearing the stress of the day, and leave with a new perspective, recharged and reconnected. It’s awesome.
I bring all my years of business experience to the party. I understand company culture and what will work in different offices. We have a select group of teachers with a variety of styles—we can match the teacher with the specific needs of the company. And I bring over 30 years of fitness to the table as well. I hold a 500–hour Hatha Yoga certification, and a 200-hour Kundalini certification. I’ve had the good fortune to study with the experts in various areas—I studied Yoga Nidra with Richard Miller, Chakras with Anodea Judith, and alignment with Donna Farhi. I’ve taught over 2,500 Yoga classes in all types of environments.
You have probably gleaned that I absolutely love teaching Yoga. So what do I do when I’m not teaching? Don’t laugh, but when I’m not teaching, I’m often on the mat in a Yoga studio, taking a Yoga class from one of the many teachers that I love. But I’m not ALL Yoga, really. I love to travel and fulfilled a dream of traveling in India last year. I am also still an avid reader—and I especially love memoirs, and really well-crafted fiction—think Middlesex, Life of Pi, and Bel Canto-and I still love to dance—the gymnastic days are over, though, I assure you.
You might find me in the kitchen changing recipes to make them healthier, more delicious, or just a little more unique. Here in Austin—the hiking is great and accessible, so you are likely to find me hiking on Bull Creek or at Wild Basin Trail. All this activity makes me tired, so I see a lot of movies with my husband and try to stay awake!
I’d love to tell you more, and find out about how I can help you… Let’s Talk!
A Year of Mindful Wellness
by Lisa Feder
This book covers twelve topics, one for each month, so you can commit to a year of positive change, with habits you will take with you for the rest of your life.
Christine is an uplifting yoga instructor who specializes in teaching power-based classes that focus on breath, alignment and yoga philosophy. Christine carries over 1000 hours in yoga & fitness education and loves to teach and share in the world of retreats and yoga trainings.
Melinda’s classes emphasize the cultivation of self-awareness of both the physical and subtle bodies, pranayama, meditation, and chanting, and the Vinyasa Krama tenet of linking graceful movement with breath.
Kelly has found deep healing in her practice of yoga, and strives to create a safe space for all students to form a more loving relationship with themselves. Her intuitive sequencing in flow classes are designed to get you out of your head and into your heart with appropriate challenges and a little humor.
By far my favorite yoga experience was attending a yoga retreat in Costa Rica led by Lisa Feder. It was a magical and we had the opportunity to be completely immersed in yoga, not only just the physical practice, but also learning about the culture and doing service work for a family in need!
Cristina de Llano Porche
A native of Laredo, Texas, Cristina first discovered yoga in her teens as a way to prevent injury while dancing ballet. Her practice consists of vinyasa and hatha flow, but she also knows it’s important to slow down with yoga nidra, restorative yoga or hatha yin.
For over 15 years I’ve worked in health and personal development. I’ve taught over 2000 classes and events. In 2013 I helped launch Sanctuary Yoga, the only non-profit yoga studio in Austin, Texas. I have completed over 2000 hrs of training and am a Registered Yoga Teacher and Certified Life Coach.
Dana discovered yoga through a voice teacher who incorporated movement into voice warm-ups when she was only fifteen years old. Yoga and singing together created a safe space where being in her body didn’t seem so bad. Yoga became a major building block in the long process of making her body into her home.
Rebecca’s classes provide a safe healing space where students can learn to be still and unravel stress, trauma and chaos; her classes are well-suited for all levels of experience and ideal for those seeking comfort and ease in stillness.
After studying and practicing engineering for many years, a desire for healing and a deeper connection to self, led Sheila to the path of yoga and meditation. She has studied and practiced many forms of yoga, from ashtanga to yin to meditation. Most dear to her heart is the practice of meditation and yoga nidra.
What was your first Yoga experience? At a Gold’s Gym in my 20s, and honestly, I hated it.
