Christopher K. Nagy, M.D., is a man on a mission. Dr. Nagy has a great deal of medical experience as an Orthopaedic Surgeon over the past 15 years. But, as someone who is passionate about real wellness (rather than merely treating symptoms), he knows that the current practice of medicine does not have all the answers. Dr. Nagy’s goal is to help educate and introduce an important treatment option in medicine, bioidentical hormone optimization. Your Personal Wellness Center was established to offer proactive and interested individuals bioidentical hormone optimization. The purpose of Your Personal Wellness Center includes helping to increase awareness of the options available to help improve one’s quality of life and make possible a healthier, more vibrant life.
Tirelessly studying and reviewing the latest literature and keeping abreast of the newest and most exciting developments allows Dr. Nagy to bring you the most current and efficacious treatments to guide you in the aging process. Patients can rest assured that they have an extremely strong advocate and partner who will guide them where they desire to go on their journey to ultimate wellness.
Dr. Nagy received his medical degree (M.D.) at Wright State University School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio, in 1990. He is practicing as a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon in Salisbury, North Carolina. With his passion to help people beyond the scope of Orthopedics, he has furthered his training as a fellow in the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. His certification in mastering the Protocols of Hormone Optimization came under the tutelage of Dr. Neal Rouzier, a renowned authority on the subject.
Dr. Nagy created Your Personal Wellness Center in 2010. His mission is to assist patients in receiving the treatments that will allow them to improve their lives beyond what traditional medicine offers. Proper treatment can help one live life as it was meant to be. This type of medical program requires active participation by both parties to bring about the optimal results that are possible.
Ashley Bell is a life-long educator and lover of learning. She has undergraduate degrees in studio art and journalism for print media from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, as well as a master’s degree in art education from Columbia University's Teachers College. Ashley found her voice through the arts and set out to empower others to share their experiences, hopes and dreams through art making and creative writing. She took her first yoga class while enrolled in college in 1994, but was reintroduced to the practice in 2002. It was then that she discovered how yoga could support her mission to bring students a greater sense of validation and liberation.
Ashley completed her 200-hour yoga teaching certification in 2003 at Gaea Yoga in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, and her prenatal yoga certification from Asheville Yoga Center in Asheville, North Carolina in 2004. She also has an additional 200 hours of training from Laughing Lotus Yoga Center in New York City. Through over a dozen years of teaching yoga in Charleston, SC, Ashley has contributed to many of the area’s best-loved studios, including Gaea Yoga Center, Blue Turtle Yoga, Charleston Power Yoga and Mission
Yoga. She has been a lead teacher in several 200-hour yoga teacher-training programs and is a professor of Beginning Yoga at the College of Charleston. Ashley also travels in the mid- Atlantic and southeast to teach workshops on yoga asana and mythology. In late 2016 Ashley will open a space in Charleston where students from all walks of life can gather to explore mobility, stability, and stress-management practices. The studio will provide yoga classes alongside offerings in the arts and other holistic therapies. After 25 years of teaching across populations – from toddlers to the elderly, from the privileged few to the poverty stricken, in urban centers and rural settings – Ashley is actively pursuing ways that this new project can create access for those who are underserved and currently underrepresented in the yoga community.
Ashley has immersed herself in the visual and performing arts since early childhood and has always loved sports and the outdoors. Music plays a big role in her life and in her classes. She loves to travel, especially on the back roads. She is passionate about eating great food and laughing until she cries as often as possible with the people she loves the most. Although Ashley still finds time now and again to create art and write for her blog, she reserves most of her energy outside of teaching yoga for her most important role, as mother to eleven-year-old Pope and six-year-old Wren.

Carolyn Burson, a certified integrative nutrition health coach, is passionate about fueling bodies with the best nutrition—to feel our best, give us energy, and help our bodies heal and fight off disease.
She began her journey in clean eating in 2008 when she and her family moved to Hong Kong. Forced to eat whole-food, plant-based recipes and abandon the Standard American Diet of processed foods, they saw a surprising improvement in their general health that prompted Carolyn to begin studying natural and nutritional health upon her return to the United States.
She started her studies at Hallelujah Acres, where she became a certified health minister, and also holds a certificate in plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Foundation for Nutrition Studies as well as a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Texas. She received her integrative nutrition health coach certification in 2014 from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, sanctioned by the New York State Education Department.
Beyond her own studies, Carolyn also strives to educate others about clean eating, giving them the tools they need to pursue natural health on their own. She works with groups who share this same mission, offering her expertise in healthy, whole-food vegetarian and vegan shopping and cooking. Carolyn taught and directed such programs as the Taste and See director for Totally Fit 501(c)(3) Non-Profit in Charleston, South Carolina, 2013–2015; as a facilitator for Bliss Spiritual Co-op in Charleston, South Carolina, where she taught Florence Crittenton and Healing Farms healthy eating classes; and as a facilitator for the online Wholly Woman Course, based on Wholly Woman, authored by Linda Howard and Melissa Schatz. She’s also been a distributor for two years for Juice Plus, inspiring healthy living, and Tower Gardens, teaching aeroponic gardening.
Above all, Carolyn is the proud mother of three boys and two daughters-in-law, the beaming grandmother of three beloved children, and wife to a loving husband who’s supported her on this journey—they’re the inspiration for her drive to pursue and promote clean, healthy living and to whom she hopes to leave a legacy of health and long life.
