My Story

I’m an Executive & Wellness Coach and a Holistic Wellness Practitioner on a mission!

I’m Cristina Rodenbeck, the founder of Manipura Wellness Practice. I’m on a mission to help clients clarify their direction and build self-belief while prioritizing their wellness.

Trust me, I’ve been there. I dedicated over a decade of my life to two of the world’s greatest advertising agencies. I worked long hours, travelled the world, studied hard to fill the skills gap, and went all out to meet tight deadlines and high expectations. I loved my job but I wasn’t loving my life.

What bothered me the most was that many of my peers and friends felt the same way. We were all tired, feeling sluggish, eating unhealthy at our desks, catching innumerous colds and flus and sleeping very little. Something needed to change, not just for me but for every person craving balance.

In 2007, I committed to take back my life and regain my power. I studied to become an Executive Trainer and Coach, so that I could empower Executives in Hong Kong, across Asia and Brazil, with the skills they needed to perform, the confidence to strive, and the awareness to thrive.

In 2013, corporate met wellness. Having experienced firsthand the powerful effects of holistic wellness therapies, I have added certifications in Iridology, Bach Flower Remedies, Crystal Healing and Mindfulness to my toolbox. I host monthly Kirtan sessions in and around Hong Kong.

Manipura Wellness Practice – where corporate meets wellness

In my heart, I desire to bring empowerment to those around me through Manipura Wellness Practice’s coaching and wellness offerings. This mission has become even stronger since I became a wife and a working mother, every day working hard to not only survive, but to strive in our challenging society.

When I’m not working

I make time to do the things I love that bring me peace and greater energy. I exercise and meditate daily; and I keep my finger on the pulse on latest happenings in the wellness and wellbeing arena. I also run Kirtan sessions in Hong Kong every month and am joined by individuals from all walks of life – all benefiting from the opportunity to recharge and revitalize before embarking on the month ahead.

I live in Hong Kong with my husband, daughter, the treasured memories of my fourteen-year companion Labrador Sam, and our new family pup-member Luna. They are part of my personal wellbeing and support system.
