Crystal (she/her) has been practicing yoga since 2013. She received her 200-hour certification through Laughing River Yoga, in Burlington VT. She primarily teaches vinyasa, Yin, and restorative yoga classes. Yoga has helped Crystal learn it’s not about avoiding the more uncomfortable emotions and sensations that come up within her being, but to pause, breathe, honor them, and name them as they are instead of allowing those moments to consume her. Once Crystal embarked on becoming a yoga teacher, her exploration of self only deepened. Having been in several trainings and coaching containers to help her to more deeply understand herself, Crystal can provide and hold space for others on their journeys as well.
Through her teachings, she hopes to share the healing and transformative benefits of the practice that we can take off our mat and into our daily lives. Guiding us towards reconnecting back to our true nature, while benefiting from the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual effects of the practice. She aims to create a space and practice for all levels, where folks can feel safe to explore their experience with a gentle approach.
Crystal is also a reiki practitioner and offers 1:1 and group energy healing sessions, for humans and for horses. When Crystal’s not teaching, practicing, providing energy healing, or working at her full-time job, she typically spends her time with her horse Falcor, hiking, reading, or expressing herself through art.
