Crystal Gray will help you plan unique classes easily. You’ll learn how to, in under one hour per week, plan, theme and sequence classes that will speak to your dream students and fill your cup while filling your classes.
By narrowing down your niche and talking directly to your ideal client in their language, you will be able to create the kind of change you came to this profession to do!

Once we have an idea on your niche, we’ll develop those classes that will speak to them by using Crystal’s signature class planning formula.

We’ll then create social media content around those themes and come up with a content calendar. You will learn how to set up all your posts at one time during the week so that you can “set it and forget it", only coming back to comment and interact with your audience. We will go over how to network and collaborate within your specific niche.

You’ll learn different ways to connect with your tribe in your community and online so that you can make sure those clients that need you can find you.

Bring a notebook and pen to class please!

About Crystal Gray & Daren Friesen

Crystal Gray has been teaching yoga for over 10 years. She received her last certification at Moksha Yoga in Chicago and now has the title of E-RYT 500.

Crystal opened a yoga studio in 2013 and sold it in 2016 to focus on her family and online business. She currently splits her time between teaching spiritual seekers as well as yoga teachers, helping them learn how to go from yoga teacher training to teaching confidently.

She loves incorporating themes into her classes and tries to make them a full experience, bringing in essential oils, chakra studies, mantras and more into her classes as well as helping students reach challenging physical postures.

Aside from yoga, Crystal enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter and dog on their 20 acre organic vegetable farm and studying spirituality and healing with energy work and mediumship cultivation.


Daren Friesen is the director and founder of Moksha Yoga Center in Chicago which is the largest yoga center in the Midwest. An enthusiastic student and passionate teacher, his challenging style of vinyasa flow incorporates asana, pranayama, mudras, bandhas, and kriyas. Having studied with renowned teachers in the states and masters and gurus in India, Daren encourages students to use traditional elements and techniques to overcome the pull of opposites (duality) and to develop one-pointed attention. Through one-pointed attention, one discovers the keys to accessing true health and vitality. Daren’s classes offer provocative insights and opportunities for personal growth through his unique blend of a classical yet innovative approach to practice.
