Yoga has been part of my life since my yoga first class in 1969 (I was practically a baby!) During my twenties, yoga postures, breath and relaxation techniques supported my body before and after long bicycle rides and runs, including training and running my first, and only marathon. During my two pregnancies, yoga helped me stay balanced and fit. After the loss of my father from a sudden heart attack, yoga helped me to reduce stress, anxiety and depression.

I started my career in the health/wellness field as a personal trainer for over 10 years while obtaining my Bachelor's degree of Science emphasizing Kinesiology from TWU. I was drawn to the therapeutic aspects of personal training and started working in Rehabilitation. In 2007, I started doing yoga after a back injury and was introduced to yoga therapy and thus the passion for yoga began. I tried many styles of yoga and enjoyed them but I still felt like they were missing something until I tried Svaroopa® yoga in 2012(Therapeutic Spinal Release yoga).

Chelsey Charbeneau has found her life's purpose in helping people become happier and healthier through her own healing journey. When she began practicing yoga she was an unhealthy person who could barely touch her toes. As her practice became more serious and her lifestyle habits changed she started recognizing the therapeutic effects on her mind, body and soul.

My life up to this point has had many phases, highs and lows.  My adolescent years included being heavily medicated and spending countless hours with therapists giving me various diagnoses. I was told and expected to just behave, but in reality I was unsatisfied.

I came to yoga and finally found a way to manage my emotions on my own but it wasn’t until yoga helped me get through the grief of loosing my former spouse that the practice began to take on a deeper meaning. Initially yoga was only a physical practice.
