Chelsea Lee April 21st , 2016
E-RYT 500 (Experienced Registered Yoga Alliance Teacher), Diploma of Yoga Therapy, Masters of Management
Growing up as a contemporary dancer, Chelsea has always been drawn to the sacredness of movement. She began practicing Yoga in 2006 to heal a dance-related hip injury and quickly discovered the power of movement and the breath to heal. As a Yoga Therapist, Chelsea helps others with physical conditions (such as Arthritis, Sciatica, and Physical Injury) and mental/emotional conditions (such as Post-Traumatic Stress, Anxiety, and Insomnia) return to the activities they love through the use of yoga.
Chelsea completed a Bachelor of Arts (2009) and Master of Management (2010) at the University of British Columbia. After a short stint of working a corporate desk job, Chelsea’s passion for movement and working with others led her to change her path. In 2011, she completed her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Rachel Scott (YYoga), followed by a 500-hour Teacher Training and her Diploma of Yoga Therapy with Nikki Manzie in 2013 (Pacific Rim College).
In addition to offering private yoga therapy in two physiotherapy clinics, Chelsea is the Director of the 300-hour Foundations of Yoga Therapy training program at the Vancouver School of Yoga, where she is the lead instructor for yoga teachers training to become yoga therapists. Chelsea is also the Director of Yoga Education for RAD Roller, leading RAD Yoga trainings that educate instructors on how to intelligently integrate mobility tools into their yoga classes. When she’s not working with clients or teaching students, Chelsea keeps herself active snowboarding during the winter, and hiking and cycling in the summer.
