About Wellness GypSea
My name is Krystal Calise the founder of Wellness GypSea. I hope to encourage you to approach wellness with an open mind and a relentless soul. Through my interactive blog, I along with some of my very special GypSea Tribers will share our own personal wellness experiences and journey. I hope it inspires others to do the same. I also encourage those who seek a deeper understanding or a more personal experience to join us at any of our Wellness GypSea Retreats so that you can explore many different theories and techniques for yourself.
I believe that Wellness is very personal discovery that demands much trial and error both on a physical level as well as on an emotional and spiritual level. Especially in today’s modern world of information we come across many new ideas, theories, inventions, diets, therapies, exercises and/or ways of living that we sometimes can find ourselves lost. At least, that was my experience when I started my wellness journey, but I believe that is a great way to start.
Being lost is the beginning to finding yourself and what you want. Or need for that matter. It enables you to identify the things that mean most to you and ask the questions you need to ask. Keep in mind that wellness will mean many different things to many different people at different times in their lives. It is relative to your age, your goals, your needs, your strengths, your beliefs, your knowledge and your desires. As you come to know more about yourself, you come to understand more of what you want. Wellness is relative to only you and within its relativity it requires an honest examination of who you think you are and who you want to be.
I hope Wellness GypSea inspires you to seek your soul, try new things and find your own wellness journey!

Five years ago Krystal decided to leave the hustle and bustle of NYC and find inner peace. Originally, she sought to remove herself from all the city life stressors and distractions, specifically the media influences and all the social ideals it imposed. By exposing herself to new experiences, people and ways of living Krystal was able to more deeply define her ambiguous sense of self and purpose.
She lived in the Dominican Republic for a couple of years without television and limited access to internet. In her spare time she took up various forms of yoga classes including AeroYoga, Astanga, Vinyasa, Hatha and Meridian stretching exercises. She experimented with many different forms meditations, Pranayama, mantra chanting, mandala painting and traditional Tibetan Rituals. She attempted to master the art of capoeira along with more mainstream fitness modules such as crossfit, paddle boarding, biking and running. To relax she got regular psychosomatic shiatsus, moxa therapy, applied kinesiology and polarity therapy. She explored her creative and artistic self through painting and journaling. And learned to cook with local fruits and vegetables while exploring many Ayurvedic remedies typical to the island.
During those years she also traveled to other continents including Europe, Asia, Central and South America, where she explored other wellness practices as well as cultures. Now she resides in Peru. A country rich in culture, biodiversity, mysticism, natural endeavors and adventure. Though her blog she invites you to join her on her journey through Peru and the rest of South America.
