My Journey

Practicing yoga for the last 7 years and teaching for 5, Crystal has always been a seeker of the truth. This quest got her to leave the corporate world, travel & work on organic farms in Europe for several years to pursue life’s meaning.

Destiny then led her to go on a one-week silent meditation retreat in Bali, where she experienced clarity, contentment and balance, along with an achy back. Yoga, would stretch everything out – she thought, not realising that this next yoga class she would take, was everything she was searching for. The truth was not out there in the world, but inside our very selves.

It was in Rishikesh, India, home of yoga, where Crystal studied her 200hr RYT teacher training with Tribe Yoga School and since then, has been teaching groups in the UK where she lived for a year.

Now back in Asia, her thirst for transformation continues with Anusara yoga, a beautiful, elegant but also dynamic system of yoga that resonates strongly with what she’s been feeling in her heart about yoga.

She feels so blessed to have discovered yoga and loves sharing the wonder, the grace and beauty of this practice with all that is out there, searching too. 

She thanks all her teachers, Pak Merta Ada, Scarlett Mehigan, Raquel Salvador, Mark Ansari and Sequoia Henning, Kate Porter, Jonas Westring and Linda Madini who have inspired me to follow this path.
