Aloha my name is Crystal!
I love to do yoga & travel to the nice places in the world. My favorite place to be is in a yoga room.
Yoga has been a part of my life over 10 years. My practice has helped me grow stronger.
At first there was a Canadian girl who brought me to “Bikram Yoga Honolulu” in 2009, and after my first class, I found it was NOT as easy as I imagined.
But the true surprise was the sense of peace and joy I found, this was an amazing feeling. The studio has changed their name to “The Yoga Room Hawaii“. This studio graced me the opportunity to work with amazing community members and great teachers. Through the practice of yoga I realized this had become the most important tenet in my life. My friend and teacher Kever McGuiness encouraged me to complete 9 weeks of “Bikram Teacher Training “ by Bikram Choudhury in Los Angeles. I completed the teacher training in 2012. After training, I went back to Hawaii and I met Alexis’s mom, Barbara Gacki. I taught my first class on the beach with her in Feb of 2013. She said to me, “You got a job!” That was the moment, I had to make yoga my career. She has inspired me. Her teaching style is amazing; she is so full of energy. She is an awesome teacher!!! I have been teaching at Bikram yoga studios in Honolulu for five years. I’ve traveled to seven different countries and each time, I found Bikram studios to teach yoga at. Bikram yoga for me is hard work. This relationship that is built between the body, mind and the breath. When focused on the balance between strength and flexibility, it works! Now I try all the styles of yoga, and I love it! I am passionate about yoga and I love to share my passion with others. Everyone is on their own paths, but in the yoga room, we can come together to find your own personal yoga journey. Yoga is a powerful tool to help heal people, and we each have our own gift that we can share. I will always be a student of the practice and appreciate all that the great teachers have shared with me. Consistency is the key; move your body, free your mind. Everyday is a new journey. Aloha & Mahalo!
