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.

"There is no higher form of finding fitness, health and peace than working with Chelsey Charbeneau. Her talent lies in knowing just how our physical beings work in unison with intellectual, emotional and spiritual beings. As my body gained more range of motion, strength and flexibility through working with Chelsey, many meaningful avenues opened up in my life on every level. Chelsey provides a foundation from which to enhance and build the life you envision." - Diane L.

"I had the privilege of randomly meeting Chelsey at my local coffee store during a time of physical crises. My back had gone out and I was barely able to stand erect. Through a mutual acquaintance we introduced ourselves. Chelsey asked many questions about my injury and indicated that she might be able to help me through her expertise in Yoga Therapy. I wanted to practice yoga and to have an expert teacher who would be able to help with my back pain. She was beyond my expectations. I was SOLD!!! Over the next two years Chelsey taught me more that I could have ever hoped for. She taught me exercises to strengthen my back and poses beyond my expectations. She also brought meditation in my life and best of all he shared her gifts of warmth, generosity, gratitude and general caring. Each session was tailored to how I was feeling in my mind, my body and my energy level. her acceptance of where I was each day she was with me allowed me to grow into my practice without hesitation or fear. It was a practice of unconditional acceptance and confidence. Chelsey has made her indelible mark on my life; how i life it and how I see it. I am so grateful." - Shelley R.

"I met Chelsey when taking her prenatal yoga class and instantly upon meeting her I felt so much more relaxed. She has an amazing way of making you feel so comfortable in your skin and gives you the confidence and freedom to be who you are and practice at whatever level you are. I hadn't done yoga in many years and she inspired me to get back into it. Her genuine warmth, encouragement and acceptance are such a breath of fresh air. She is beautiful inside and out." - Alexandra S.

"Chelsey has transformed my mind and body since working with her. I always describe her to people as a personal trainer/yoga instructor because she mixes in certain movements with breathing/yoga moves that kicks my butt every time. She also knows rehabilitation in the way that she can adjust parts of the body to still get the same results without taxing weaker areas. She knows when to stretch you and when there is a point in which your body cannot go any further. I never have to tell her, she just knows. I have referred many of my patients to her because she is truly excellent." - Cheri P.

"When I started working with Chelsey I was an aging 49 year old. Now two years later I am 40 and getting younger every day. It's one thing to memorize the yoga positions, but it's an entirely other thing to understand the connection, reactions and benefits that each subtle and sometimes not so subtle movement has. You can work out or you can worth from the inside out. Chelsey is a personal trainer and life coach that understands the difference. She has enriched my life and possibly extended it as well." - Ted T.
