Teacher;
Chelsea Potter
Chelsea's yoga journey began as a young student growing up in the Candian Rockies where she came to practice as a means to better understand her body, breath, and emotions. Over time the deep personal benefits to her mental health and general well being that yoga brought were undeniable. This inspired her to want to share the gift of yoga with others so in 2017 she got certified through the Vancouver School of Yoga with teachers Lila Rasa Brown and Natalie Rousseau. From there she went backpacking In India where she was fortunate to learn and practice with multiple local teachers. It was there that she gained a deeper connection to yoga and its roots. Chelsea teaches with a strong focus on accessibility and believes yoga can and should be available to everyone.
