Chelsey Charbeneau C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, YACEP - LULULEMON AMBASSADOR
Chelsey Charbeneau discovered her life purpose—helping people become happier and healthier—through her own wellness journey which began in Los Angeles over 16 years ago. She was your typical A type personality climbing the corporate ladder and working for a financial investment firm. As time went on, the effects of stress and neglect left her with a laundry list of diseases and ailments. She began to practice yoga and meditation which led her to experience the extensive therapeutic benefits on her mind, body and spirit.
Chelsey is a certified yoga therapist with The International Association of Yoga Therapists and an experienced registered yoga teacher and continuing education provider with the national Yoga Alliance. She is also certified in Thai yoga massage therapy, Mindful-Self Compassion and trained in prenatal yoga. For over six years she shared her expertise at a physical rehabilitation center in Beverly Hills and went on to collaborate with doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Methodist Hospital, Medical City, and The Brain Performance Institute. She has helped to treat and manage many medical conditions and ailments such as chronic back and neck pain, headaches, heart conditions, anxiety, stress, rheumatoid issues, auto immune diseases, PTSD and more.
After many years in the medical industry she realized the need for meditation on a mainstream level. In 2014 she opened Just B, a meditation studio in Santa Monica, California and in 2016, she moved to Dallas and helped open a mindfulness meditation studio where she served as their Chief Mindfulness Officer. Chelsey has created and implemented meditation curriculum for Dallas Independent School District, Adaptive Training Foundation, Unique Footprints among many others. She has also launched the first 200-hour meditation teacher training in this region and continues her meditation studies with renowned experts such as Pema Chodron, Dr. Kristin Neff and attending Vipassana retreats as taught by S.N. Goenka. Her hard work and dedicated outreach in the community has been recognized and rewarded by lululemon where she now serves as an Ambassador.

Her work has been circulated globally and she continues to lead teacher trainings, workshops, classes and seminars nationwide. Chelsey's teachings have impacted the lives of children, seniors, homeless, celebrities, trauma victims, veterans and everyone in-between. With a deep commitment to health and well-being, her goal is always to provide an experience that is nurturing, personal, and safe.
