I began my exploration with yoga in 2007. In 2014, I completed my first teacher training at Jane’s House of Well-Being in St. Charles, Missouri. I was trained to teach Hatha yoga, using the Dynamic Yoga Method (DYM), under Robin Buck, Sarah Kadel, Matthew and Holly Krepps, and other masterful teacher’s. I registered with The National Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) and began teaching soon after.
My teaching style is non-judgmental and always tries to encourage growth physically, mentally, and emotionally. Reminding my students to come back to themselves by getting out of their heads and into their bodies. I keep my students safe in their postures by using subtle cuing, hands-on adjustments, and modifications. This helps to challenge each student to reach beyond their perceived limitations, so they can begin to find and understand their own body. I am great with beginners and strives to make each class accessible for all levels.
I recently (2019) graduated Lindenwood University with my Masters in school and professional Counseling.

She is young but has much experience. Makes you feel comfortable trying new movements.
Wonderful yoga teacher. Friendly but respectful of your boundaries. She works with you at the place you are at with complete acceptance of your level and goals.
The very best!
So awesome...I am very new to Yoga but I am happy Crystal is there to teach and take me on the new journey. In this day and age of fast pace stress and social media...such a welcome positive experience!❤️❤️❤️
I'm not a yoga person but do like to try new things and exercises. This was a great experience immersing my self into a practice of body and mind. Crystal put the class at ease with her positive energy. I liked how she didn't make me feel rushed to keep up, go at my own pace and gave suggestions for a better stretch. When I entered I was nervous being in a class of strangers,my arms and shoulders were stiff,glued to my sides. After her class I promoted a totally different body language. More loose and free flowing.
Crystal has a very kind and compassionate energy. I was really nervous to go to class because I had previously only done yoga at home with a DVD, but Crystal made me feel welcome and comfortable. She helps me adjust or get back on track if I struggle with a posture or movement without drawing attention so that I don't feel embarrassed. Love her class and always feel rejuvenated!
