Instructor: Crystal Winter
Celebrating children has been a very important part of Crystal Winter’s life during her 34 years of teaching elementary aged children in Douglas County School District. After discovering the many benefits of practicing yoga herself, she wanted to bring those same benefits to the children in her classes. In 2012, Crystal received her certification to instruct children’s yoga through Radiant Beginnings. At this time, she began teaching yoga to her students daily as a mental and physical break along with being a co-yoga instructor for school enrichment classes. Crystal has witnessed many benefits in her young yogis which include deeper focus, improved strength, breathing techniques to help with emotional needs, self-calming strategies, collaboration in partner poses, increased flexibility, and a sense of peace. In each class, Crystal strives to create a safe and fun environment to empower children to build positive self-concepts and fall in love with yoga! In 2021, Crystal received her CCYT (Certified Children's Yoga Teacher), 95 hours and is thrilled to apply this knowledge in every yoga class she teaches.
