Kristi Vitali, PT, LMT – As the founder and co-creative director of Be Well Austin, and creator of BodyMind Alchemy, Kristi believes that the body is a self correcting system that articulates deep wisdom, and that when we learn the language of this connective wisdom we can engage in healing conversations with our body, heart, mind, and soul. Kristi delights in integrating heart-centered myofascial bodywork with personal mentorship & coaching to assist in unpacking patterns that lead to pain and emotional overwhelm. She is passionate about working with wisdom-curious seekers who are willing to get a bit uncomfortable and see pain as a portal to self-discovery, who are fully committed to the adventure of lifetime learning, and who desire to take the deeper dive toward self-love and personal truth as a means to show up more fully for themselves and in the world.
