In addition to teaching yoga, Crystal has a Master’s degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, a Bachelor's degree in Aviation Management, & currently pursuing certification in Massage Therapy. Crystal discovered the ability of yoga to help manage the effects of her scoliosis after having developing a personal practice. It wasn’t until she was living in upstate New York in 2013 she met and trained under Jennillee Toner, creator of Hot Warrior Yoga and author of The Perfect Chaturanga, for her 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher training. Maintaining a passion for health and wellness she has pursued additional teacher workshops across the country. She’s trained with Allison West out of NYC for yoga for backcare & scoliosis and Marisa Toriggino out of San Francisco for an 85-hour Prenatal Yoga Certification at the Yoga Garden in San Francisco. As a yoga instructor she believes in the importance of listening to your body and intuition while creating a peaceful place inside for mental and emotional growth.
