Cristal Yoga

About Cristal

I was 17 when I first heard about this mystical exercise that a handful of people I’d heard of were practising so I decided to see what all the fuss was about. I got a video (I’m showing my age now) with yoga’s equivalent of Jane Fonda as the instructor and I just remember being in savasana on my tiny bedroom floor, visualising that I was serenely floating on air, miles above the universe. I didn’t have the words to describe how amazing it made me feel or the much-needed escapism it provided me with at that time but after that, I was hooked! Throughout my life yoga has guided me through the good, the bad and the ugly and my practise always evolves into what it needs to be when I need it. I love the intuition that comes from working in harmony with your mind, body and spirit and those are the experiences I facilitate as a teacher. I have practised yoga for over 15-years and studied for 3-years with The British Wheel of Yoga to become a teacher. I am committed to ongoing training and attend regular courses and workshops to feed my passion for yoga in all its wonderful forms. I have practised with some amazing instructors such as Ana Forrest,Yoga Guru of Forrest Yoga, David Sye, of Yogabeats, Liz Lark and Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, the pioneer of Womb Yoga, to name a few.

I have spent time in India studying the philosophy of yoga and the authentic approach to Hatha yoga, which is something that I incorporate into my sessions. Most recently I have been studying a more therapeutic approach to yoga from a female perspective, which allows me to offer a more tailored approach to my classes, particularly pregnancy yoga. My aim is to share yoga as a way of life, not just as a physical practise and to offer an individual and accessible approach to suit everyone’s uniqueness.
