Chelsey Charbeneau C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, YACEP - LULULEMON AMBASSADOR
Chelsey found her life's purpose in helping people become happier and healthier through her own healing journey. She is by no means your typical yoga/meditation teacher. At the start of her practice she could barely touch her toes and was living a high stress lifestyle, working on the management team for a financial investment firm in Los Angeles. As her practice became more serious and her lifestyle habits changed, she started experiencing the therapeutic effects 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 and trained in prenatal yoga. Chelsey has shared her expertise at a physical rehabilitation center in Beverly Hills, 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, TBI's 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, Mastermind, a mindfulness meditation studio in Dallas, Texas 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 and for various projects with Mastermind. Her hard work and dedicated outreach in the community has been recognized and rewarded by lululemon where she now serves as an Ambassador.
Chelsey's expertise has garnered her a web series with Marta Kauffman and appearances on FOX, NBC, WFAA, and Eye Opener Television. Her work has been circulated globally and she continues to lead teacher trainings, workshops, and seminars nationwide. Chelsey's teachings have impacted lives from children to seniors, homeless to celebrities, trauma victims to veterans. With a deep commitment to science-driven health, her goal is always to provide an experience that is nurturing, personal, and safe.
She believes that being the best teacher means being the best student. Her most recent studies include a course with Pema Chodron at Omega Institute and a 10-day silent Vipassana meditation retreat. Her most recent accomplishment is the creation of a 200-hour meditation teacher training which launched Spring of 2018 and is happening again this fall.
