“Everything just made sense, connecting movement to breath gave me an opportunity to pause, and look at the mirror within. I started to leave what wasn’t healthy and my practise on the mat started to influence everything I did off the mat, like a rippling effect. I felt the fears, worries & negative thought patterns shift. I started to live in the present, to see the beauty in the mundane, to breathe deeply, to connect to myself, and to others in a way I never had before…”.

Crystal felt the need to reevaluate her career path in 2013 and undertook her initial 200 hour Yoga Teacher Trainer at Essence of Living, Gold Coast under the guidance of Michelle Merrifield. From there everything unfolded… Crystal dived heart first into further studies and has been teaching full time ever since.
