Crystal Aviles is a 200-hr RYT.
My yoga journey began back in 2013, when a friend of mine asked me to join her for a class. I never dreamed I would eventually become a yoga instructor one day. My yoga practice has come a long way from that frst day that I stepped on my mat. It began as a mental practice, then a supplement to my crossfit training, then evolved to becoming my primary form of physical exercise and now ot encompasses both, a physical and mental practice for me. That is what I want to bring to the mat for my student, both a physical and mental practice. I want to provide a class that allows the student that time on their mat during class that is dedicated to themselves to feel better mentally and physically. I can't wait to grow with my students and I am excited to see them evolve in their practice just as I did. I hope that anyone who attends my class and Thrive Yoga and Wellness studio find a community and family here just as I have.
