Jennifer Spears

Essential Oils Specialist

Jennifer, originally from Los Angeles now residing in Dallas, has always appreciated the simplicity of nature. She enjoys all the wonders of the outdoors – hiking, running, and visiting as many National Parks as possible on her family’s travels – her efforts to bring her family wellness naturally led her to essential oils. Jennifer began using essential oils in her home and with her children four years ago. At first the oils were used to prevent the common childhood coughs and colds and to make the home smell pleasant, however she began educating herself on the benefits of using essential oils for managing muscle pain, better sleep, increased focus and energy, mood and emotional support, and so much more. In mid 2017, she began an essential oils education group, which is now over 700 oilers strong and increasing everyday. Jennifer is bringing essential oils and non-toxic living to as many families as possible through her personal expertise, education, and outreach. She is currently enrolled in the American College of Healthcare Sciences certification program for Aromatherapy.

Cristina Siepela

Koat Yoga Specialist

Christina Siepiela discovered Kaiut Yoga® in 2001. Living a hectic lifestyle as a Family Law Attorney and a College Professor in Curitiba, Brazil, Christina developed a sciatic nerve pain that became so severe it affected her day to day mobility as well her sleep. She heard that Kaiut Yoga® could help and she started practicing with Francisco weekly. And help it did. In 2004, Christina moved to the United States and there she continued her yoga practice, but with Kaiut Yoga® not available locally she was practicing hot and power yoga; even taking teacher training in another method. After a few years, personal reflection revealed a need for something deeper and more meaningful. She reconnected with Francisco in 2016 and is now working towards her Kaiut Yoga® teacher certification under the Intensive Teacher Training program in Toronto, Canada with completion in September 2018.
