Chelsea had a passionate relationship with movement as an expression of joy, life force and connection from a very young age. As a child she felt she most truely understood the world through her body, dance being her most frequently chosen form of expression. Although, perhaps to explain it as a choice is less than accurate, it felt as necessary and natural to Chelsea as filling her lungs with breath and as nurturing as a loving, kind mother.
Chelsea’s first experiences with Yogastarted in 2003; trying to exercise and self nourish with a toddler underfoot. She had no idea how deeply and enduringly this profound and ancient practice would resonate.
In 2008 Chelsea completed her first 200 hr Yoga teacher training with a heavily Iyengar influenced studio (Body Yoga), where she developed a deep understanding of yoga structural & core support in asana.
Chelsea soon after felt there was a deeper more holistic understanding to be gained & began her journey into a richer yogic connection with mind, body, soul and breath as a seamless, effortless process, through the teachings of the Krishnamacharya lineage.
Chelsea then completed a second Yogateacher training in 2013 with internationally renowned Heart of Yoga teacher Mark Whitwell, who was a direct student of Krishnamacharya, DKV Desikachar & U G Krishnamurti.
Mark’s teachings cultivated in Chelsea a significant respect for the role of the breath as the guide in Yoga practice, and movement with that breath as the aligning force with source rhythm and reality. An enveloping guide acting as tuning folk into an effortless, connected state of being.
Chelsea has most recently studied somatic movement with teacher Kerry McGregor and has explored it’s stunningly beautiful, symbiotic applications to yoga.
Chelsea draws on all of her training and offers a unique fusion of her journey through Yoga and lifelong fascination & relationship with movement in her teachings
