Where it all began…

Initially, Krystal discovered yoga as a form of physical activity. As a natural dancer and spiritual person, she found that yoga was more aligned with her passions than going to the gym or playing sports.

As her practice deepened over time, she began to see the profound therapeutic benefits that yoga offered. On her mat, she was able to observe thoughts, understand desires, and connect with her body. This she found to be LIFE CHANGING!

Lululemon – Miami

Community Yoga Event @ Lululemon in South Miami 2015

This was my first official community event in Miami in partnership with Lululemon.

Three years later, I convinced them to let me do it again for the open in Mexico City. I held one of the first events to commemorate the launch with delicious Yoga & Brunch event that was packed to capacity.

Yoga & Brunch Event @ Lululemon – Polanco, CDMX, México 2018

I am the creator and host of the Weekly Feel Good podcast and Deep Frequency, a nocturnal and ceremonially immersive, sensory wellness experience that incorporates yoga, human connection exercises, electronic music, and black lights. The first Deep Frequency was hosted at WeWork in Miami Beach.

We raised over $10,000 USD to move this event throughout Miami and later brought it over to México.

The Westin Hotel – Mexico City

One of my closest relationships during my time in Mexico City was with the spas at the The St. Regis and The Westin Hotels. I was the yogi in residence and had the privilege of working with their team for employee wellness days and private events with guests and high profile clients.

Kiva Yoga Institute – Online

Retreat in a private house in the middle of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere – Tulum, México 2017

My husband Israel and I founded Kiva Yoga Institute and led various retreats in México (one of which was featured in Marie Claire). It was through these experiences that we got to work closely with shamans and experience the healing of Nahuatl (Aztec), Huichol and Mayan ancestral medicine. We participated in, assisted, and led plant medicine ceremonies, temazcalese and caminatas.

Corporate Hiatus – Remote

Most recently, during the pandemic, I closed my yoga doors and life presented me with a remote door as the Head of PR & Marketing for a global tech enterprise based in the UK. I led internal and external communications along with community building that included organizing the first online conference with more than 600 people in attendance from universities all around the world.

It was during this time I truly understood the importance of wellness in the workplace.

We suffer from stress, anxiety, burnout and get sick mentally, emotionally, and physically because our work environments are unsupportive of what is needed in order to be well.

Simple things like getting enough sleep, knowing how to breathe properly, training the mind, regulating emotions, nourishing and caring for your body is critical to being a healthy and happy human!

These tools and practices I share have helped me to live a happier, healthier and more fulfilled life. If I inspire only one person to change their life and live well, I have done my part.
