BeachBee Team


Christina Bollino ~ 500hr ERYT, BeachBee Yoga Studio Owner/Manager/Lead Instructor

Christina leads the BeachBee Yoga team as the studio owner / lead instructor/ manager and holds a 500hr teacher training from Yoga on York located in Baltimore, Maryland. Christina is a professionally trained ballroom dancer and has been teaching dance since 2002. Her strength and grace on the mat is a result of dedicated dance training and she easily incorporates that elegant movement into her yoga classes. Christina also enjoys gentle and restorative teaching with a focus on promoting relaxation and stress reduction. She began her journey on the mat as a teenager and was immediately drawn to the wonderful mind, body, spirit, and holistic health benefits from a constant yoga practice and found it to be a nice compliment to her dancing.

Christina is a certified personal trainer, fitness instructor, and health coach with a Masters in Nutrition and Integrative Health. Her goal with clients is to help them achieve optimal health so she regularly mixes up her yoga classes and teaching style to incorporate barre, pilates, cardio, and strength training to keep clients engaged and excited about coming back to the mat time and time again.

Becky May  200hr RYT, Instructor

Beckie started practicing yoga daily in May 2019 by following online videos before work. Her relocation to the USA later that year gave her the opportunity to make this an “in-person” routine with Beachbee and she is grateful for all the opportunities that followed, particularly the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training which she completed at the studio in March 2021. Her previous work in the field of mental & behavioral health influences her practice as she emphasizes the mind-body connection. She is into all things wellbeing and enjoys seeing people doing the self-care they promote for others. She loves being outside; in the woods, on the water or in the hills and get silly-happy when she sees animals in their natural environment.

Winnie Hull

Winnie Hull 200hr RYT, Instructor

Winnie came to practice yoga after taking dance classes at Beach Bee. As a Tai Chi and Qi Gong practitioner for many years exploring Yoga is a natural extension of her interest in integrated mind body spirit practices. After practicing Yoga for about a year she enrolled in teacher training as a way to deepen her practice. During the training she discovered the rewards of teaching and once she started there was no looking back. She completed her RYT 200 hour certification at Beach Bee in March of 2021. Her practice focuses on restorative, gentle and all levels classes. She loves restorative yoga and practices that engage the parasympathetic nervous system. She is committed to helping people reduce stress and firmly believes yoga is something that should be accessible to all. Yoga has been a life changing gift to her and she believes it has the power to heal and help people live happier, more fulfilling lives.

Beth Ford 200hr RYT, Instructor

Beth started practicing yoga as recovery from strenuous workouts while training for triathlons and intense hiking trips.  As she spent more time on the mat, she found that yoga could also help her find balance and calm the mind, which is challenging given a large load of work and family commitments.   She developed a love of the practice along with a desire to inspire others to discover the strength and balance that yoga can bring to both mind and body.  She received her RYT 200 certification in 2016 from Charm City Yoga. In her classes, she guides her clients to move mindfully, compassionately, and make the practice their own. In her personal time Beth loves hiking with husband Jon and her dog, paddle boarding, golf, biking and, of course, yoga!

Maria Wright 200hr RYT, Instructor

Maria Wright leads classes in meditation and yoga nidra (guided yogic relaxation). Her classes make traditional meditative practices accessible to everyone. They include techniques to cultivate focus, introspection and compassion, imaginative guided visualizations, and sound meditation with Himalayan singing bowls. Her interest in contemplative practices began in college, where she minored in Asian Religions and majored in Art History. Years later, she began taking yoga classes which included meditation, yoga nidra and chanting, and invited (dragged) her friends to try them. Maria observed the positive impact these practices had on her best friend as he recovered from a serious illness, and was inspired to share them with others to aid in healing and maintaining overall well-being. She completed her teacher training in the Hatha-Raja Yoga tradition of Swami Satyananda Saraswati in 2009, and has also trained in sound healing/meditation, yoga therapy and reiki.

Kati Patel, 200hr RYT, Instructor

Kati dabbled in yoga over the years but seriously came to her practice in 2016. She completed her 200 hr yoga teacher training in 2020 at Serenity yoga studio in Middletown, DE. Shortly after completing her training she began teaching vinyasa, yin, and gentle yoga classes.

While she loves a hot vinyasa class, Kati appreciates the sweetness of slowing down the flow and settling in with a gentle or restorative practice. Her classes aim to weave the mind, body, and breath together to find that often elusive bit of tranquility in the daily grind. Kati is excited to join the Beachbee community and looks forward to seeing you on your mat soon!
