Christina Bollino ~ ERYT, BeachBee Yoga Studio Owner/Manager

Christina joins the BeachBee Yoga team as the new studio owner / manager and holds a 200hr 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 and fitness instructor and has 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.

MaLinda Ross has practiced yoga for nearly 8 years and recently completed YTT with Liberty Yoga, May 2017.  During MaLinda’s first ever yoga class (almost 15 years ago) she found herself distracted and uninterested. Some years later a friend told her how great yoga was and talked her into taking a class. Going into the yoga class with an open mind she enjoyed every moment of it! After several months of taking a regular class, MaLinda realized that yoga was more than just a physical practiced her weeks became less stressful and she was happier. On weeks she missed class her mood was unbalanced and her husband would even comment  “make sure you go to yoga next week”.  Eventually MaLinda decided it was  time to deepen her practice not only for herself, but so she could give back  to the community what was so graciously given to her; a balanced mind,  body and soul.  MaLinda enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, nature, camping, photography and helping others to find peace and happiness.

 

Meghan Staley started practicing yoga as a form of physical exercise over ten years ago. Over time, her relationship with the practice evolved, as she realized the mental and emotional benefits of yoga. Yoga also became a spiritual practice for Meghan, as she began to understand the connection that yoga reveals, between her mind, body, and spirit, other people, and the universe. Meghan is a 200-hour registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. Her classes utilize physical postures, deep breathing, mindfulness, and music and allow her students to tune in to themselves and to connect with the world around them. Meghan firmly believes that yoga is for everyone, and strives to make her classes accessible to students of all levels.
