Yoga has been a part of Paulette’s daily life and inspiration since 1999. Paulette not only works as a yoga instructor, but is the business developer for Truth N Health, LLC. ”In 2002, because of the connected and peaceful feeling I felt after each practice, I thought it was selfish to not share this with others. I realized the more I practiced and learned, yoga was constantly opening me in ways beyond just new flexibility and strength within my body. So, I set out to make it part of my life’s work to teach others the beauty and wonder that a living yoga practice has brought me. I received my yoga training from teachers Anne Phyfe Palmer and Melina Meza at 8 Limbs Yoga Studio in Seattle in 2002. I have continued to study with some of the top yoga teachers in the US, including Sharon Gannon and David Life, Shiva Rea, Baron Baptiste, Ana Forest,and Seane Corne. I am also one of the founders of Home Yoga Studio on lower Queen Anne in Seattle, which still exists today.”
“My belief is that it doesn’t matter how far you can stretch or what level you get to as a student, as long as you can breathe you can do yoga. I believe if you’re aligned properly and can still smile, you’ll be able to tap into your body-mind wisdom and reach even greater strength and flexibility – physically, emotionally and mentally. It is my hope and aspiration to share the experiences and benefits of my own living yoga practice with as many people as I can. My goal has always been to help people open up to a greater joy and peace that comes from within and an ease of living within their own bodies comfortably. My teachings through various traditional and non-traditional methods, are designed to assist students to utilize their body as a means for strengthening concentration, self-awareness, and meditation, as well as to purify and energize the mind with the focus not only on keeping the body healthy and flexible, but on opening the mind to long-term relaxation and well-being, to help people begin to connect to an authenticity deep within, find their inner creativity and flow, and learn to live their yoga not just on the mat but in all aspects of life. I look forward to teaching you as well as learning from you. Namaste.”
Christian and Teresa Bevacqua are independent teachers of Vedic Meditation, working with individuals to sustain balance and achieve success in all areas of their personal and professional lives. Christian has taught hundreds of people to meditate since becoming a Vedic Meditation instructor in 2007.

Prior to becoming a full-time teacher of meditation, Christian served as a technical consultant to several Wall Street firms while maintaining a successful career as a recording artist and running his own independent record label. A recording contract with Reprise Records, a division of Warner Brothers, and successive nationwide tours led to his discovery of Venice, Ca where he now teaches and resides with his wife Teresa and daughter Uma.
Christian learned Vedic Meditation from Thom Knoles, the world’s foremost instructor of Vedic Meditation outside of India, and a leading authority on the Vedic worldview. Following in the footsteps of his mentor, Christian began teaching Vedic Meditation within eighteen months of learning the practice. He finds true joy in teaching this knowledge and building a healthful, vibrant, and conscious community.
Anna N. Dolopo, L.Ac. has been practicing Chinese medicine since 1999. Her practice began in San Diego, which included working and volunteering with the homeless community in Pacific Beach, the HIV/AIDS community, Samahan Community Medical Clinics in National City and Mira Mesa.

Anna has been growing a highly effective Chinese medical practice with the powers of Dr. Richard Tan’s Balance Method in beautiful Laguna Hills since 2006.
Anna is a proud graduate of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in the San Diego campus. Her education, training on and off campus and the multitude of resources open to her during school and after graduation have given her the confidence to help every patient live a vital, centered and painless lifestyle.
Since the beginning of Anna’s practice, she has been very successful in the treatment of menstrual and digestive issues. Anna’s general practice has also been effective in the treatment of serious diseases such as post-stroke, congenital heart disease, weight loss, hypertension, allergies and depression. Many pregnant women also seek her treatments to induce labor naturally if the woman’s labor is threatened by an impending induction by the obstetrician with Pitocin. The focus of her practice now is helping patients graduate from the causes of their physical pain, such as migraines, carpal tunnel, neck pain, frozen shoulder, sciatica and pre/post-operative conditions.
Monique has always been an artist. She started creating as early as she could remember and ended up with a Bachelors of Art in fine arts. Sometime during her studies, she found another love; yoga. Monique has been practicing for 8 years and has no intention of stopping. She received her 200 RYT in 2011 through True Flow Yoga in Newport Beach, learning how to guide others through their yoga journey–mostly a vinyasa style practice. Through her own practice, Monique has learned so much about herself as well as how to deal with the everyday stressors of life in a more calm, peaceful way. It has helped her not only as a person but as a mother and she wishes to continue sharing this with others with her current Ayruvedic Studies. Monique is also a yoga instructor for toddlers and is the creative designer and marketing director for Truth N Health, LLC. Other than art and yoga, Monique is a stay-at-home mommy of a 3 year old boy which she believes is the best job in the world. “I have had a deep interest in holistic healing through both Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine as well as whole food nutrition and have researched these subjects on my own for the past 5 years. I have a passion for healthy food and use this towards my families well-being.”
