Chelsea and I have shared fun meals together, and she also helped to design an upcoming ad in the Yoga Journal for me. In one of our first conversations, she explained that she often pays for studio time in order for Costa Rican locals to be able to attend her classes. This generosity of heart and soul is contagious, and when she expressed an interest in teaching donation classes at Pavones Yoga Center, I was 110% on-board.
Chelsea believes the skills you obtain on your yoga mat translate into the real world, so if you can learn to practice with true dedication, patience and loving-kindness, you can approach all of life with these same qualities. She is very grateful and enthusiastic to be teaching yoga, and believes that if we all leave our mats with the hint of a smile, we can spread a little love to the world.
Chelsea teaches a vinyasa flow yoga class inspired by her practice in Ashtanga, Bikram, Vinyasa and Anusara. After living in the city of Chicago for five years where she completed her 200 and 500-hr. yoga teacher trainings, Chelsea discovered the natural beauty and power of Costa Rica on a volunteer farming/yoga teaching experience. After extending her visit a few months, she decided to make the jungle her home, and is now constantly inspired by the healing powers that nature provides.
