Chelsea is one of the lead teachers of Vasa's 200hr Yoga Teacher Training program. Her skill-based approach to movement increases strength and range of motion through deliberate and progressive yoga classes. She tries not to take herself too seriously and encourages students to do the same; she keeps her classes lighthearted and “fun”ctional. Students may find themselves pausing in the middle of a class to hear the whys and whats of a particular pose. Chelsea takes this time in a class to explain some of the finer points behind an asana because she feels when it makes sense in the mind and in the body, the information is absorbed more fully by the students, thus fostering a deeper and perhaps more fulfilling practice. She has been greatly influenced by her mentors, Jules Mitchell, Melissa Smith, Gil Headly, Greg Lehman and Todd Hargrove through her years of training and study of the human body and movement. Chelsea is passionate about helping others feel great about themselves and encourages everyone to do yoga. She desires that every student will become empowered to develop a practice that is truly their own.
Her message to you: “It doesn’t matter where you start, rather where you go."
