I founded Chelsea Joy Yoga & Wellbeing in 2016 when, after finishing a professional master's degree in Australia, I discovered a passion for yoga and the way it supports the mental and physical wellness of men, women and children in a beautifully holistic way.
Five years of experience teaching Yin and Vinyasa yoga in Perth, Sydney and London gave me immense experience working with an array of unique individuals including young adults with disabilities, women's community programs, primary school classes, corporate sessions, at a reintegration centre for prisoners about to be released back into society, and for Qantas for their business class passengers pre-flight.
The primary intention of my classes is for people to find peace, clarity and empowerment through movement in a safe, non-judgemental environment. Each class has its own intention and theme, however for the women's classes I like to invite a practice of connecting with the divine feminine in a flowing style, for the children's classes the focus is on calming and self-awareness, and for men's classes I like to bring in warrior energy balanced with the final softening stretching of Yin yoga.

Renegade Relics Jewellery
As a woman born to an Irish-German mother and Mexican father raised all over the United States, Latin America and Australia, I always found myself fascinated with where people fit in and how “home” shapes their identity. The moment I could walk, my mother took me on a three year excursion in a Westfalia camper van from California, through the Yucatån Peninsula, down to Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. Those unconventional formative years spent barefoot climbing ancient ruins, holding onto wild iguanas tails and dancing with Mayan children moulded my adventurous outlook on life and developed my passion for encouraging others to break away from the mould and think outside the box to harness their true potential through travel and adventure.
Since growing up, I’ve passionately educated myself in various disciplines to gain a greater understanding of people and their environment: BA in Sociology, MA in Urban Planning, Yoga teacher training, Reiki energy healing and six months’ thesis study on our innate connection to the natural world and how it enhances our wellbeing. I love imparting the knowledge I’ve gained through my work, and have come to learn that not everything that is real & true is widely accepted, or visible to the naked eye – thus my Travel Astrology and Healing Jewellery work. Currently in my journey I’m enjoying a fantastic life on my Travel Energetics sun line in London, and lapping up the benefits! I’m looking forward to many more adventures whilst connecting people with their own unique, life-changing adventures!
