“Yoga- because punching people in the face is frowned upon.”
In today’s world, Crystal believes that we all need more Yoga in our lives and wants everyone to just try it! She first stepped onto the mat out of curiosity nearly fifteen years ago when she was stationed in Hawaii. Since then, Crystal has practiced various types of yoga (off and on) across the world from Bikram in Bangkok, to Ashtanga in Africa, and yoga/surf retreats in Bali and Costa Rica. However, it wasn’t until she was stationed here at Fort Bragg, that her practice began to truly deepen past the asanas of Yoga and into the philosophy and science of Yoga.
Nowadays, Crystal steps on her mat for a multitude of reasons, to maintain mobility, to get a good sweat on, to connect with her breath and give herself just an hour (or 90 mins) to transcend. Crystal completed her 200hr YTT with the Non-Profit VEToga in May 2018 and offers a mix of Hatha Raja Vinyasa Flow with Pranayama and Yoga Nidra inspired by the teachings of Sri Dharma Mittra.
