Access workspace variable from function within class

I have a table (DataTable) stored in a .mat file (Data.mat) that I want to be able to access in functions within a few different classes. I have a test class that stores a set of indices that correspond to rows in DataTable, and I would like to retrieve the values in these rows from a particular column of DataTable as a dependent property:
classdef testClass
Indices double
properties (Dependent)
Values double
function obj = testClass(ind)
obj.Indices = ind;
function val = get.Values(obj)
load Data.mat
val = DataTable{obj.Indices,1};
However, I will be changing the indices and accessing new values many times, and I don't want to have to load Data.mat every time. What I would like to be able to do is load Data.mat file once in a setup script and then access DataTable within testClass without loading it again. Two potential methods I'm aware of are to create a global variable for DataTable in my setup script, or to use evalin, but both of these seem to be discouraged. I'm wondering if there's another best practice for accomplishing something like this.

Add a private or protected property to your class using the Access attribute on your properties block. In the constructor of the object, load the data and store it in the private/protected property. When you need to access it, do so from the private/protected property not the disk.

An example is needed here.
