Chelsey began cultivating her yoga practice while living in Whistler. The mountain lifestyle – coupled with pushing past her edge on the ski hills and bike trails – led her to seek a more compassionate relationship with her body.

Yoga became a source of calm, fluidity, healing, support and meditation in motion. In the beginning, she felt yoga was a chance to “catch” her breath. Now it is a time to listen generously to the body through attuning to the breath.

She has a deep appreciation for the natural world and connecting to the body’s inner rhythms. She believes yoga has the capacity to transform patterns and tap into our true essence.

She encourages fellow students to get curious and practice flexibility in mind and body. Synchronizing movement with breath to nurture the spirit.

Based in a tiny forest cabin on the Sunshine Coast, she is grateful for access to fresh air, ocean dips, loved ones and the YBTS community.

She is a graduate of the 200 Hour YTT program under Amrit Institute Senior Teacher Hasu Marney Coulter, an initiate of the Kripalu Lineage, at Yoga by the Sea.
