This is my story...

HELLO FRIENDS -- I'm Crystal and I am so glad you are here! First of all, let me just say that I am beyond grateful for my life -- all of it! I am grateful for the good times, as well as the heartaches, struggles, challenges, and the many difficult lessons I've had to learn. Everything has made me who I am today, and I am honored to be here with all of you!

I grew up in semi-religious mormon family. I had very kind, loving and supportive parents, but like many families, we had our share of struggles. Growing up in the church was difficult for me. The strict guidelines combined with my own childhood trauma, left me feeling alone and confused for much of my life. The church brought up deep feelings of shame and unworthiness, and as a teenager and young adult, I struggled to find my own truth.

 

It wasn't until I began my yoga practice in 2005 that this started to shift for me. The physical practice of yoga helped my body and mind to relax and feel more settled, but it wasn't enough. So I dove deeper into yoga. After years of practicing and studying the philosophies of yoga, I began to embody the teachings.  I came to realize that yoga was so much more than a physical (asana) practice. Yoga is the union of Self with the divine "God". It is the remembering of our true nature. The physical practice (asana) is just a tool to help prepare the body for meditation. While asana is very important, it is not yoga. So I began teaching yoga in 2013, with the goal to focus more on the spiritual and energetic aspects of yoga with the intention to help bring people to experience a deeper state. Over the years I have come to understand that this state is a deep and authentic connection to one's soul.

Although yoga was my first love that helped me re-connect to the subtle world, around the same time, I also found myself drawn to energy work. I began to work with intuitive healers and eventually found myself tapping into my own psychic gifts. I become a Reiki Master years ago and have found myself connecting deeply to subtle energies; Gaia, the angelic realm, and my to my own personal guides. This work combined with yoga, as well as working with coaches and guides, has helped me work through my own childhood trauma, and the clearing of my ancestral trauma as well.

To sum it all up, I have spent almost two decades devoted to self realization and healing. It hasn't always been easy, but every step of the way has been worth it!

Sometimes I feel as though I have lived many lives in this one lifetime. I was a bartender in Las Vegas in my 20's. I was a general manager of a boutique winery for almost a decade. I've done a lot of freelance work as a graphic designer and website designer. Not to mention I taught yoga for many years and owned my own yoga studio.  

My husband would say I am a workaholic. Unfortunately I learned the hard, and in 2019 I experienced extreme burnout, which ended up being a blessing, forcing me to slow down and make necessary changes to help me align me with my soul's purpose. During the pandemic, the stillness we experienced provided my husband and I the opportunity to re-evaluated our life. We sold our house and my yoga studio. We bought a van and began to travel, looking for the next place to put down roots. We landed in Teton Valley, ID after falling in love with the incredible mountains, wildlife, and a slow paced life.

 

The last few years have come with many transitions and a necessity to put my health and well-being first. My guides tell me I've been in training. Training for this -- to be of service to the world with a pure heart. To love all beings. To live a full life. To show up as a teacher, mentor and guide with the highest intention for all. 

 

It is with love and deep gratitude in my heart, that I acknowledge my continuous path of awakening. I show up humbly today and offer my services to the world. I believe that we all have the capacity to heal, awaken, discover our purpose, and to remember the truth of who we are and where we came from. Thank you for joining me on this crazy wild ride, we call being human!

 

LOVE & GRATITUDE,

“These last few days, I was simply in awe of you. I witnessed a calling and an invitation to create a ripple birth itself to a wave of impact. You knew you had been called and you brought together 15 special humans to heal, energized, lift up, and realign. Don’t ever stop cutting the path of your truth. The life you’re living, loving, and sharing is a life of courage. The life of stepping away from what should be to what could be. You amaze me. You inspire me. Keep doing the work. You’re doing good things for the planet and for the people and I love you so much. I am up beyond honored and grateful to be alongside you in this life.”
