Owner,  500ERYT & 95 CRYT Kids Yoga Teacher & Reiki 2 Practitioner

Betsy O'Connell

Betsy opened Trinity Wellness Emporium in February 2018 in Union Beach, with the love and support of her family & friends. Her studio is not like any other, it is a crystal shop and yoga studio in one! She takes the time to get to know her students & clients, encourages a sense of community environment within the studio and will show compassion to anyone who may need it.  Trinity Wellness is kid friendly and she encourages both children and adults to enjoy their practice, and to remember we all have to start somewhere, it's a continuous journey and everything takes "baby steps".

She found her yoga journey in 2009, as a way of "stretching" between her long distance runs & as a way of doing something fun with her daughter who was 2 1/2yrs at the time.  She decided to go for her teacher certification after rehabbing her back through her yoga practice and fell in love with how great she felt.  In 2017, she received her 200hr teaching certification.  In conjunction to opening her studio, she decided to pursue her advanced 500hr training, which she received in June of 2018.  As of July 2019, she received her 95hr Kids Yoga Certification.  She teaches all ages and abilities within her studio, corporate offices and at local schools.

Betsy is empathic, clairvoyant, a medium among other things.  She is self taught in crystals and is always looking to learn more about the metaphysical.  Betsy performs all card readings at Trinity Wellness Emporium.  To gain more information on her readings you can go to her Angel Card blog entry to find out details on what to expect.  If you want to make an in-person or virtual appointment, please contact the studio .

Rachel Bruncati

Rachel has been a yoga enthusiast since 2013 when she began taking community classes and following tutorials online. Yoga was my gateway into a happier and healthier life both mentally and physically.

Rachel became a 200-hour certified yoga teacher in 2017 through Ramapo College of NJ as I finished my bachelors degree in Psychology. "Yoga has given me the confidence and strength to pursue a career using the method of holistic treatment in a therapy field."

She likes to keep her classes lighthearted with special attention to the individual needs of the students. "I want to have fun with you as we explore the practice, our bodies, and our minds."

She is a certified children's yoga instructor, certified in yoga for those who suffer with eating disorders/body dysmorphia, as well as studying to use yoga to help those who have experienced trauma.


200 RYT & Level 2 Reiki Practitioner Certified

Destiny Harrington

I started my practice in 2017, as a pretty shy and  insecure person who avoided anything like this, where my body could possibly embarrass or disappoint me .  I Immediately fell in love with the practice after noticing how beneficial it was, not only physically but emotionally as well. After seeing so many positive changes the practice brought to my life I knew I wanted to share that feeling with as many people as I possibly could. I wanted to get anyone who ever thought they couldn’t, on the mat, in my class, to let them know that they CAN! 
I completed my 200 hour teacher training in 2018. I taught for a little while at Studios, Gyms , even at a recovery center trying to find my place . After a long time of trying lots of different styles and classes, making lots of mistakes,  even doubting this path for myself I slowly started to find my niche , and what I wanted to offer exactly.  Currently  I teach a gentle, intentional class with a guided meditation and sound healing. I enjoy adding breath work and energy (chakra) work as I find it to be super beneficial to the practice . This class is for everyone; however, as a woman, and now mother of 3 , I’ve always had an interest in offering some thing JUST for women  where we are free to move in ways that benefit us, our bodies, and all the changes they’re constantly going through.  A class that empowers our Feminine Embodiment with absolutely no shame . This is something I am currently working on to offer soon.  My hope is for anyone who takes my classes to leave with an extra sense of confidence , calm and ease , But mostly to be able to come back to that sense at time they need to , with the tools and techniques I provide

This is an anatomy based, functional yoga style that Allison is passionate about sharing with her students because she believes moving intelligently in your body lights up the spirit and brings more awareness within and throughout.
