Crystal Turner | Yoga Instructor

  Crystal Turner  | Yoga Instructor, Yen Yoga & Fitness in Traverse City, Michigan.

Crystal was introduced to natural healing remedies and yoga as a young child. She was later encouraged by her daughter to reconnect with her mat to combat a knee injury, migraines, stress, and to resume a more positive body image. Yoga for Crystal has been a true source of energy, light, balance, and healing as she continues to passionately practice, working from the inside out.

Crystal earned her 200- RYT, under the instruction of Jenny Lintvedt, 500 E-RYT and Heidi Dietrich, 500-RYT, and is a registered member of the Yoga Alliance Association. She is a certified Reiki Master and currently teaches various yoga styles at Yen Yoga and Fitness and at Munson Cowell Family Cancer Center. She holds TRX Suspension, TRX Group TRX Yoga, and Connection Coalition Yoga certifications, as well as a certification in Ascension Aerial Yoga. She has also studied Oncology Yoga with Dr. Laura Kupperman. Crystal is the owner of Karasi Fitness and Healing Arts.

Her teaching style is energetic, intuitive, nurturing, motivating, athletic and creative with a focus on overall balance and core strength while effectively connecting mind, body and spirit, empowering students to move positively, and fluidly on and off of the mat.

Off the mat, Crystal serves her community as Wellness Department Manager for Oryana Community Co-op. She enjoys spending time with family, reading, jewelry making, dancing, rock collecting, resale shopping, TRX, HIIT, and practicing yoga.
