Corey O’Shea
Office Manager, Certified Chiropractic Assistant and Yoga Instructor

Corey Ann O’Shea is our Office manager, Certified Yoga Instructor & Chiropractic Assistant with a degree in health sciences. You can find her and her pups Jasmine & Otto greeting you with a smile when you walk in our front door or teaching yoga out in our beautiful courtyard.
“I remember taking my first yoga class thinking I was crazy for being there because I could hardly touch my toes but at the end of class I knew there was something about breathing and making weird shapes with my body that felt so good! My practice became much more frequent after I got diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and a doctor recommended daily yoga to help with chronic pain, anxiety, depression and other symptoms that I struggle with. I practiced at home and started seeing a chiropractor frequently. When I moved to Austin, TX in 2014 I started practicing every single day at local donation studios and quickly fell so in love with the way yoga made me feel, the community, & the varieties of yoga I was introduced to. I soon after completed a teacher training at Sukha Yoga in Austin and it was one of the best things I ever did. I am currently a 200 hour certified yoga teacher and a forever student always eager to learn. I hope to further my training with Yoga Therapy so that I can help others who struggle with symptoms similar to mine find what feels good in their own body to get relief. I believe that anyone can practice yoga, and everyone should, you just have to find the style that is right for you! Life has been a roller coaster but fortunately has brought me to the exact place I am supposed to be. I am so very excited to be a part of the Holistic Wellness Center team and can’t imagine being anywhere else.” -Corey Ann

Meilani Pruitt (Mei)
Personal Trainer

Meilani Pruitt earned her degree in Exercise Science and a certificate in nutrition in her hometown of Santa Fe, NM. She is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist with experience in rehabilitative exercise, Yoga, Pilates, Nia, Zumba, Aqua Zumba, cardio, cycling, track & field, aerobic kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, bootcamp, HIIT, and weightlifting.

“I fell in love with Yoga and Pilates when I realized how they were both able to connect my mind to my body and clear my daily worries simultaneously. Soon after I changed my relationship with eating by learning the importance of good nutrition and how making healthy choices not only fueled my body but made me feel good from the inside out. Before I would feel sluggish and guilty after eating, but when I made smarter food choices I would feel vibrant and energized. My health journey became centered around how I felt, rather than how I looked. I was getting excited about getting stronger, not the number on the scale.

I rehabilitated myself with exercise after a high speed collision, and soon after found myself working in a Physical Therapy Clinic, where I learned the importance of postural awareness and correcting muscular imbalances. My coaching philosophy revolves around core strength, balance, proper body alignment, flexibility, functional movement patterns, and guiding muscles through a full range of motion to activate the entire body, because “if you don’t move it, you lose it!” I specialize in meeting clients unique and specific goals. I would love to see you in a class or one on one, but most of all I would love to see you loving yourself! I am so excited to be a part of the integrative approach to health here at the Holistic Wellness Center!” – Mei

Thai massage is an ancient eastern medicine focused on opening the natural flow of energy throughout the body that can so often be blocked by the mental or physical stress of our daily routines. Thai massage is performed through a series of stretches that cover the entire body and includes deep-pressure point work to release tension and stimulate the body’s natural flow of Qi (chi). Brandon utilizes a variety of massage techniques to treat soft tissue injuries and nerve entrapped areas which prevent a person from participating in the lifestyle or activities they desire. Interweaving his knowledge of kinesiology, with focused deep tissue, call for motion, stretching and hot and cold therapy, Brandon combines specific deep tissue strokes with active movement and integrates various forms of hydrotherapy in his work.

Brandon loves his work and enjoys working with a motivated clientele that want to expedite their own healing through massage and home care.
