About the Instructor:

Chelsea was first introduced to yoga as a freshman in college at the University of New Hampshire and has been practicing since. A long time vegetarian with a passion for the outdoors, it was a natural fit. An active person, initially drawn to the physical practice, the movement of the asanas and the strengthening aspect. As Chelsea did more yoga and her practice deepened, she soon became aware of the mental and spiritual changes that yoga was having on her. How her whole attitude and outlook could shift from a single yoga class. Yoga has taught Chelsea many life lessons. It has taught her presence and breath and has made her more aware of her natural surroundings. It has taught Chelsea to pause and appreciate the little things, and how truly small we are in this big wo

Chelsea received her 200HR yoga teacher certification at Yandara Yoga Institute in December of 2012- this one choice has changed her life.  In April of 2015, she received her 500HR yoga teacher certification, also at Yandara Yoga Institute.  While at Yandara, Chelsea also studied Reiki and completed her Reiki Certification.  Chelsea has been a registered member of Yoga Alliance since November of 2012 and is now an leader in teaching a 200hr training.

Chelsea is a face of the Vail Yoga Community as a Lululemon Ambassador and a Lole Ambassador.
