Growing up as a contemporary dancer, Chelsea has always been drawn to the sacredness of movement. Her yoga journey began in 2006 when she started going to classes to heal her body from a dance-related hip injury. However, she quickly discovered that the practice runs much deeper than the physical postures. Yoga helped Chelsea heal both physically and emotionally, while developing a more intimate connection not only to herself but also to others, the Earth and life itself. Yoga has taught her how to breathe more fully, move more freely and be empowered to make meaningful change within her life.
Her dedication to, and passion for, helping others along their healing journey led her to Pacific Rim College, in Victoria B.C., where she completed her 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training, as well as her Diploma of Yoga Therapy. Chelsea believes in Yoga’s capacity to empower and transform, and loves helping others hold a sense of playful curiosity as they experience this transformation with grace and courage.
As a lover of life and adventure, Chelsea has an insatiable case of wanderlust; however, the mountains of Squamish are home. If she’s not on her mat, you’ll find her exploring the woods or cruising down the slopes, surrounded by friends and family. Chelsea strives to live an authentic, kind and playful life and believes that no day is complete without a little dancing and laughing.
Chelsea holds deep gratitude for her teachers’ unceasing wisdom, inspiration and support: Rachel Scott, Nikki Manzie, Holly Herman, and Diane Lee, as well as every peer and student she has shared space with.
