The short version of my life story.
HELLO FRIENDS -- I'm Crystal Borup 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 regular 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 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 became a Reiki Master years ago and have found myself connecting deeply to subtle energies; the angelic realm, my own personal guides, and so many more. 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! Fast forward to today -- I am married to a wonderful man. He is without a doubt the love of my life. I have two beautiful step daughters that are still learning to navigate the world transitioning to be independent young adults. My husband and I live in the Tetons, enjoying nature and wildlife, and traveling when we can.
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, as a teacher, mentor and Soulful Living guide. I believe that we all have the capacity to heal, awaken, discover our soul's purpose, and to remember the truth of who we are and where we came from. Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey of being human!
LOVE & GRATITUDE,
