Crystal found Dakini Movement and its’ wonderful community of women while searching for a different way to exercise that could sustain her interest for longer than few months at a time. She started her pole dancing and fitness journey in March of 2013 through a Dakini Movement Introductory class. After watching the 2 instructors’ demo dance during the intro class, she was hooked immediately. Throughout her practice, she has learned to love and cherish her body for what it can do and not focus so much on how it looks. Thus far, she has competed in 4 pole competitions and have won gold, silver, and bronze medals in various categories. Enthusiastic about pole dancing from day one, Crystal eventually decided to become an instructor at Dakini Movement Studio in 2016 so that she can share the love she has for the movement with other people. She is grateful to be a part of Dakini Movement’s community of loving, kind, and supportive women.
