YOGA FROM THE HEART
Chelsea has been a spiritual seeker her whole life. She was first exposed to yoga at a fancy gym class with her mom at age 13, and was hooked after her first savasana! So through her teen years she studied ancient yogic texts and practiced poses and breathing techniques in her pink bedroom room among her crystal, rock, and shell collections. Her family thought she was weird, but what’s now considered “new age” is just Chelsea’s natural way. Having yoga through the confusing and sometimes overwhelming teenage and young adult years radically affected her path, and that is why she has been dedicated to serving teenagers, and passing on this ancient wisdom.
Her path traversed studies of most major religions, and travels through many continents and cultures before she realized the validity in Mahatma Gandhi's famous quote: “The paths are many, the Truth is one.”
It was a childhood dream for her to be a TV news reporter, so Chelsea studied at Boston University and got her degree to do just that. As a news reporter and producer for five years, Chelsea used to go to the front lines of a crime scene or drive into the eye of the storm for the footage, for the story, the truth.
Disillusioned by the politics of the newsroom, and the realities of our corrupt media, Chelsea decided that just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should. She quit the news and decided to do yoga teacher training at Yoga Works in California to understand the practice that brought her so much inner peace and bliss on a deeper level.
Returning to Austin, it was like she paddled out right at the moment a big set was rolling in…and that giant wave of yoga that crashed into Austin around 2008 lifted her up and she’s been riding that wave ever since! Austin has been her beloved home base, and she has spent significant time in India, Maui, California and Guatemala to name a few other heart homes.
Leading transformational service yoga retreats, groups of women, circles of teenagers, and diverse populations like corporate teams has been so creative and joyful for Chelsea. Her passion is uplifting the planet one soul at a time; helping people remember their greatness, and the miracle it is to be alive! Chelsea is gifted at "reading the room" and teaching to the slowest person, yet challenging the most advanced person in the group. She also works as a freelance writer, crafting elevating content for brands and businesses that are changing the world, supporting others in rekindling joy through life coaching, and being a mother to her sparkling five-year-old daughter.
When she’s not working, Chelsea enjoys walking barefoot in the woods, bathing in natural waters, laughing, rock climbing, eating tacos, and painting with her daughter. She’s a lover of animals, children, plants, adventures, and beauty in all its many forms.
