About The Teacher

As a Psychology graduate and athlete, Crystal serendipitously transitioned from the corporate world of media & entertainment to full time yoga teaching. She first discovered yoga after her parents’ death at age 13, it was then she initiated an inquiry to the meaning of life. She began a practice of yoga that has evolved over the years to include working at the Iyengar Yoga Studio in NYC, and studying Hindu & Yoga Philosophy at Rutgers University. Inspired by her Jivamukti teacher, Crystal completed her 500 hour teacher training at Sacred Sounds Yoga NYC. She recently went on a pilgrimage to India to explore the traditional aspects of the art of yoga. 

Crystal is E-RYT 500 certified through Yoga alliance with certificates in Yin Yoga, Restorative, Kids Yoga, and Yoga Nidra. Outside her classical yoga training Crystal has trained and studied in grief counseling, crystal healing therapy, sacred plant medicine, and shamanic work. She continues her formal studies in yoga and sound healing, and enjoys sharing the latest in travel, fitness, wellness, and spirituality on her blog (contact info blocked) 

Crystal is founder of Crystal Vida. 

Crystal Vida is a corporate events and global wellness retreats company, organizing events in North America, South America, Asia, and Europe.
