About Chelsea

Yoga from the Heart with Chelsea Hover

Chelsea brings over 20 years of studying yoga with masters in India, California, Austin, and beyond to every class, offering, and retreat she leads.  Her subtle transmission of the ancient roots and practices of yoga, meditation, and breath work invite you to find a different way of walking in today's world.


Ezra M.

"Over the course of having Chelsea as my yoga teacher, slowly but surely, my core strength has regained it's integrity. I can feel both the power and the grace of my body now. Chelsea is a beautiful spirit who is truly dedicated to her student, and to her craft." 


Amrita M.

"Chelsea's gentle style, specifically targeted to our age and abilities is keeping us flexible and wanting to move more often. My husband almost never has back issues anymore, which has been an issue requiring weekly chiropractic and massage.  In addition to a wonderful yoga session, Chelsea always brings a splash of joy and radiance each time."


Elijah P.

“[The Roots to Rise retreat] has shown me a different way to exist and experience coming from the heart, not the reactive mind. It helped hold a mirror up to myself, to allow me to be open and willing to work on my spiritual development. It helped to be in touch with people from around the world, who have so very little. To just be able to connect with them, their spirits. Share smiles, touch, laughter and love."

About Chelsea:


Over the past 13 years, I've taught yoga to cancer survivors, corporate executives, elite athletes, homeless people, wealthy housewives, kids in detention centers, veterans, public school students, senior residents (wheelchair yoga!), and the list goes on...  And my most potent passion lies in bringing yoga to teenagers. I think because I first found yoga at age 13, I know how impactful having a tool kit and inner compass can be to navigate those choppy waters.  I helped launch and taught Texas' first Off-campus P.E. program in 2011, enabling students in Austin ISD to get school credit for doing yoga four times a week. The program was so much more than I expected, and these kids' lives were transformed! I also lead yoga and served as a youth mentor for 9 years at the Global Youth Peace Summit with the Amala Foundation, a service based non-profit that supports at-risk youth, and youth refugees from around the world. Some of them are among my most prolific teachers to this day.

At some point, I began leading international service and yoga retreats to India; essentially sharing three of my most profound accelerators in my awakening ~ yoga, service, and international travel. Exposing western yogis to other cultures and ways of life, especially in the motherland of yoga, helps us all expand and realize we can live more connected with the world. 

My yoga practice and teaching continue to morph and adapt as I move through life’s seasons as well. I have taught prenatal and postnatal yoga for years, and in 2015 when I became pregnant with my daughter, I hosted a group of expectant mamas in my home studio, and we practiced through pregnancy and into motherhood together; moving and breathing on our mats. What a blessing yoga and meditation tools have been on the motherhood path!  I am passionate about sharing yoga with those who struggle with anxiety, depression, and other emotional instability because I have been there -- and I am well aware what an anchor breath and presencing practices can be during huge external life shifts, and rites of passage.
