Amalia Litras: Owner – CSCS, USAW

After spending two years teaching and coaching in Kansas, Amalia decided to move to a warmer climate. Once in Austin, she spent the first few years outdoors, either riding her bike or running.  Eventually she found her way back into the gym and began strength training.

After becoming a Texan, she ran a marathon, pedaled through a century ride, competed in amateur boxing matches, and lifted in several powerlifting meets before discovering olympic-style weightlifting.  A month before her 40th birthday, she competed in the 2011 National Weightlifting Championships, finishing in seventh place.  In 2013, at the age of 42, she competed in the American Open Weightlifting Championships.

Pattie Farley: Owner – CSCS, USAW

While earning a bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech, Pattie fell in love with endurance training and began competing in 5Ks. Once she graduated and moved to Austin, she decided to try her hand at longer distances, running a half-marathon before deciding to ride in the 1998 Tanqueray AIDS Ride (Austin-to-Houston-to-Dallas/575-miles).

Shortly thereafter she suffered a shoulder injury and decided to focus most of her energy on strength training.  Since that time, in addition to two marathons and countless century rides, she has competed in several powerlifting meets and bodybuilding shows.

Adelyn Botto LMT, RSCT

Adelyn Botto

Adelyn began a practice in bodywork in 1993. To the first decade’s training in Myofascial Release, Structural Alignment, and Upledger Craniosacral Therapy (CST), she added experience in running, cycling, hiking, Iyengar (alignment based yoga), and a lower back injury to inform her work. The second decade included a 2-year certification in Biodynamic CST (based in Neuroscience/Somatic Psychology), Thai Massage, and several dance forms. She wove together experiential and linear learning to design an IBA in Applied Somatic Arts at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. Her third decade is an embodied exploration of how structural issues, pain, and injury patterns occur when the nervous system creates physical adaptations to stressors. She currently teaches Somatic Awareness and Stress Regulation privately and at the workplace, is a teacher-in-training for Body Intelligence, and a Continuing Education credit provider for massage therapists.
