Formal Bio

She practiced Ashtanga yoga exclusively for many years, assisting at a traditional shala and practicing with her teachers, Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldmann.

Personal Introduction



Peace, family. I'm Christina Victoria, and I'm the founder of Liveology® Yoga Studios. I am the daughter of Rev. Clara T. Mills and Felton J. Williams and give honor to my parents for all they shared with me. My name was intended to mean Victorious in Christ, which I often translate to Live Victoriously (some people call me Live). My mom was a pastor, so I grew up in the church. She was the kind of pastor who used her church to feed the homeless and lead marches against gun violence, and always worked in ecumenical groups. As I got older, she exposed me to her personal library, which included everything ranging from The Lost Books of the Bible to Buddhist teachings. My dad would always say, "Everything is information" and encouraged me to be curious and to think for myself. My mom put me in my first yoga class at the age of 16, but I kind of forgot about it for most of my 20s. I entered seminary where I learned Greek and Hebrew and began to preach, but became disillusioned for many reasons. One, was the wealth of information I was learning in school about other traditions, and those who worship this same God all over the world, in different ways. So I decided to change the world through politics and began to work on campaigns, doing graphic design and faith outreach. Things were going pretty well. At 30, I encountered what I considered to be traumatic events. My anxiety was out of control. I could barely work. I was told I had PTSD. I initially sought Buddhist meditation, but found it so difficult. Then I remembered enjoying yoga when I was younger, so I got back into it. I practiced every day, and every day I continue to reap its benefits as I began to heal my mind, my body, and strengthen my body. I was so excited by what was happening that I began teaching and Liveology® became a mobile events business - I began to quietly document everything I was learning as articles on this site.


I am so grateful for how Liveology® has grown over the past few years as my creative expression and a way to share the gift of yoga. We are so blessed! Now, we have thousands of articles and videos. I have taught everyone from toddlers at daycare centers to seniors in chairs and professional athletes, including the Fan Controlled Football team. We have put on events of hundreds of people at a time with multiple teachers. I am a graphic designer and act as the Executive Producer/Editor-in-Chief for our content, including our print magazine and the website. I also make our malas by hand and formulate our other products such as our body oils, all of which my family actually use at home. I wear a lot of hats.


I am available to teach classes and retreats, for speaking engagements, and for uplifting podcast discussions. I love to talk about the following topics:


The Science and Spirituality of Yoga

Cross-Sections between Christianity and Yoga

The Power of the Breath

The Benefits of Meditation on Everyday Life

Leveling Up with Yoga


Yoga is so much more than asana (posture) practice. it is a spiritual practice, a science, designed to help you to increase self-awareness, to break patterns, connect with God, and find increased levels of freedom, peace, and joy. I designed this site to be an interactive yoga experience - a visualization of sorts. Everything is a choice. This site is interfaith, dedicated to the exploration of God, or the creative principle of the universe, in every language, every culture, across the world. It's dedicated more toward asking questions than giving answers. For evolving humans.
