Located at 501 SW Washburn Avenue in the Potwin Place Historic District, Oshnik Yoga is dedicated to providing a space of education and exploration for our community. Here, you can find classes of all types, in both Hatha and Vinyasa styles. We offer early morning sessions, restorative classes, and yoga for children. Our general class will encourage your participation with any type of modification you desire, given your experience. Our instructors are trained and certified with over 15 years of combined experience in both Hatha and Vinyasa styles, and they teach only what is connected to truth and passion in their respective practices.
We believe wellness is a confluence of one's work, both on and off the mat, and we are honored to share our space with wellness practitioners of many disciplines. It is our intention to provide a space for individuals at any place in their path to explore the impact that movement and breath can have on personal growth, inner and outer strength, and the deep work of self-love. We believe the tools our colleagues share within these walls are medicine for a greater existence.
We hope you’ll join us in our practice.

Crystal has studied the benefits of yoga for COPD patients extensively and enjoys sharing the therapeutic benefits of postures for all body types. Crystal's desires to help her students calm their nervous system, connect the mind with body, and find healing are why she continues to practice and share yoga. Crystal completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training under the instruction of Gopi Sandal at Westside Yoga in Lawrence, Kansas.

Amy's yoga journey started years ago as she began to experiment with the practice as a physical exercise. It has since become vital to her daily life for the mental, spiritual, and physical gifts received daily from the practice; she sees yoga as a way of life. Amy completed her RYT 200 HR at OmTree Shala in Lawrence KS. In her personal practice, she loves varying levels of vinyasa, yin, and meditation as a means to connect with her breath and body. Amy is an art teacher at Highland Park High School (Go Scots!), and a mother of three energetic children. A lover of travel and general adventuring, Amy enjoys hiking, creating, reading, and spending time with her husband and children. Amy recently completed a Reiki II practitioner certification, and is enjoying learning about this avenue of energetic relaxation and healing.
Marisol thrives on the flow of yoga. Her practice is colored by the power of the Divine Feminine, her passion for nature’s beauty, and the dance between spirit and soul. Always letting her heart be the guide; Marisol has found a path of true self love and self discovery through practicing yoga.
She received her 200-hr teacher training in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru. One of her deepest joys is connecting with and learning from people of all walks of life through her travels.
Marisol believes yoga is accessible to any body and that the practice is simply about meeting yourself on and off the mat as you are. The wonder of the human body, the feel-good release of breathing, stretching and moving, and the numerous health benefits of yoga are a few motives that bring her to the mat. Marisol continues her practice off the mat by embracing a lifestyle of healing, growth and radical self expression.
