Chelle began practicing yoga as an exciting new form of exercise, but quickly realized that the mental and emotional benefits of yoga practice had a much larger impact on her life than the physical. So much so, that she was inspired to share those benefits with others through teaching. Her first teaching opportunity was to incarcerated youth for Seattle Non-profit, Yoga Behind Bars, where she is still an active ambassador and volunteer today.
She incorporates gentle and vigorous elements into her classes, with an emphasis on breath awareness and alignment. Students of all levels are welcome and encouraged to listen to their bodies, play with their limits without exceeding them, and have fun!
Chelle is a Certified Baptiste Yoga Instructor and an E-RYT, RCYT with Yoga Alliance. She has completed Levels 1 & 2 teacher trainings with Baron Baptiste and has been mentoring with Senior Baptiste Teacher, Lisa Black since 2011. Chelle is also honored to have studied with Andrey Lappa, Janet Stone, Hala Khouri, and many other gifted teachers.
