Meet Your Trainer: Crystal McCreary

Crystal's yoga journey began after college while working as an elementary school teacher in Oakland, CA. After a long day with children, the rhythmic linking of breath with movement had the effect of quieting her over-stimulated mind. She began to observe herself with more clarity and to unearth with compassion many obstacles on the path to wellness. Yoga was an integral component in her self-care ritual during the completion of her M.F.A. in Acting and soon became a true soul mate.
