OUR HOKEY POKEY CLINIC STAFF
The practice of Yoga began for me after the turn of the new millennium and would significantly come to shape the direction of my life path. For the past 15 years, my practice of Yoga has led to my own personal discovery. Significantly, the advantages include our own ability to unfold the higher powers that are accessible to us both internally and externally.
In 2005 I traveled to Northern India to live a simple ashram life imbibing the true qualities of a yogic lifestyle ? simplicity, awareness and Self-observation. In Southern India, I explored the Self-healing practice of Ayurveda. This ancient practice aims to restore wholeness with our inner self as its ultimate goal, which is essentially spiritual healing.
In 2006, my interests in wholistic living led to the creation of Om Tea as I designed a special healing and rejuvenating blend of herbs and tea that act like a natural multi-vitamin. Om Tea was created as a therapeutic and delicious replacement for bottled supplements.
Six years later, my evolving studies in essential oils and their uses as natural home remedies led me to pursue and obtain a certificate in Aromatherapy and the Therapeutic Uses of Essential Oils.
Most recently, to compliment my development in the art of healing, I became a certified Reiki Master. This practice of using energy to heal has enriched both my own life as well as those who engage in its magic.
Crystal Blanchard was raised in Canmore and now reside in the lovely town of Cochrane . I have been blessed with two beautiful children and a wonderful husband. Painting , singing , song writing , playing multiple instruments as well as working with children are just a few things that I am passionate about.? Currently I run a busy face painting company and teach music and movement class to children 8 and under .
I just recently completed a Holistic Health Coach class and educate families with regards to natural solutions.? Me and a few of my favorite people just wrapped our 4th year coordinating the kids tent at Inshala and we grow fonder and fonder of the community that that event inspires. Previously I taught at an inclusive art and music focused private school which was my favorite job to date.
I was also the winner of the 2009 ECE Award of Excellence.? My newest venture will be teaching Art Social (painting in the pub) events at restaurants for families.? I’m in love with the creative energy children bring to all that they do and am inspired by them daily .
