What I wanted to gain from this training was.....
"This training came in perfect timing. As it always does. I not only was eager to grow and learn more about Kundalini and the body but I was also in a big transition in my life and I knew I needed community to walk through this season with. This training brought me all of that. It brought me more knowledge of the brain, the body, deepened my practice and allowed the space and time to process and reflect my beliefs, and current struggles alongside such inspiring, badass woman younger and older than me, all in different walks of life. I came into the training carrying this weight on my shoulders filled with so much stress, anxiety and fear and then I walked away lighter, absorbed deeper knowledge of the practice and of who I am, and built lifelong community. My heart and soul is filled with so much gratitude. Grateful for Chelsea’s sisterhood, personality, her fire to grow alongside her students, her "lets dig deeper” perspective on all things, when she isn’t afraid to speak up and shoot, the list goes on." -Tiana 300 hr Grad
What I loved about the training was....
Every effin’ moment of it, that’s what! More specifically: (1) the small group allowed us to really get to know each other closely & develop working relationships quickly; (2) the setting was a perfect distance to travel to get into the right frame of mind for study, but not so far that the amount of travel was a significant burden; and (3) our instructor has a wealth of knowledge and experience that allowed her to tailor the presentation of material in a manner best suited to our specific little group. This is a key, but incomplete, list of things to be loved about the experience.
What I wanted to gain from taking this training was.....
I had 3 goals related to this training: (1) to deepen my knowledge of elements of yoga beyond asana so that I can improve my personal practices; (2) to develop a pathway to substitute teach if necessary at my home studio, Union Yoga Co in Everett, WA; and (3) to better understand my many teachers’ points of view so that I can make the most of their lessons.
Do I feel I have gained that?
- Glen 200 hr graduate
"I wanted to gain more insight into what yoga was and how it could lead to a better, improved life. I have heard so much of yoga transforming people's lives and I never understood how that could be. I wanted to learn more about the principles and how to incorporate them into my own life, and see what kind of transformation I would experience. "
Do you feel you have gained that?
"Absolutely. I can now say that yoga has brought a positive change into my life. I feel much more mindful, clear-headed, and all-around more gentle and loving towards myself and others. I've learned that yoga is so much more than just the poses, not just tending to the body, but to the mind and the spirit as well. And now I can relay this experience to others."
What I loved about this training was...
"The community aspect of learning and growing together. The love and caring the whole group had for one another. Chelsea's grace and understanding for me, while still nudging me forward."
"I love all the support and the many opportunities to grow upon our skills. I learned many things about myself and gained skills that have helped me every single day."
"I feel ready to teach and help others do yoga and heal!"
"I loved the support and encouragement. The opportunity to teach real classes was priceless."
"I loved learning how to connect the posture to whats happening within the body. I gained a better connection with my body, and learned to find my center when I am frustrated."

" A very well organized and presented training. Excellent pace. This has been an incredible experience in so many ways. I have loved all of it."
"I am grateful for what this training has provided. I loved being vulnerable, learning breathing techniques, postures, anatomy, and making new friends."
" I loved getting to know everyone, learning about the history of yoga, anytime we did a group growth activity. I learned so much about myself and who I am outside of being a wife and a mother."
" I learned a lot about yoga, the history, anatomy, styles, postures, my body, and how it responded to the physical aspect of movement. Most importantly calming my mind, my thoughts, and all the practice. Chelsea is a true leader, loved that she took the extra time to ensure we learned and went above and beyond."
"What I loved about this training was how you presented this class from a spiritual, anatomical, and physical perspective touching on everything I had hoped."
" I learned so much and did so much personal growth and development. I am a stronger healthier me after this training."

" I loved the personal sessions, going through all the poses in great detail, meditations, and personal growth. I wanted to gain inner peace, and tools to be successful in whatever I choose to do. Yes I feel I have gained this. "
" I loved the community that was created. The support given by Chelsea and the other classmates. The training is well rounded and extends way beyond the basics of yoga."
"The heart work was amazing! I really feel like it's opened up a whole new door in life for me. I love how quickly we started teaching and the insight on leading other and teaching for the class not myself. This has been life changing in really really good ways. I appreciate the open dialogue in class and loved that we all contributed uniquely while also being guided by you. It was so much fun."
What I loved about this training was....
" How personal it was. It opened my heart and soul to a better way of living."
"The self work. I loved the journaling and promts. Your training helped me shed the pats of me that I had been holding onto. The parts of me that were holding me back. I feel more myself than I ever have in my life."
"This was the most transformative personal work I have ever done. When you guaranteed I would be ready to teach I thought I would be your student for years. Maybe the pupal to make you amend your promise. Instead I am graduating with confidence plus so much more than I expected. Thank you." -Jeffery
"I loved Chelsea's amazing energy and compassion. The groups loving and dynamic. How safe I felt as well as welcomed in spite of my lack of experience and yoga knowledge."
" What I wanted to gain from this training was confidence, and the answer to do I want to teach. I feel like I have gained this and Yes I do want to teach."
"This was life changing and because I am changed, this will create generational change throughout my family. I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn, so much."
"I gained knowledge about yoga/history/meditations and confidence in myself through trusting what I know."
"I loved my trainer, and learning about all the people in the class. All so interesting and inspiring in their own way. You really saw and wanted to see the best in all of us and truly wanted us all the feel at ease, comfortable, and capable to be who we are. Because it is good enough."
"I loved all of the self work and that we were all where we were and not forced to be where we weren't. Training was amazing I am sad it's over."
" I wanted to gain confidence in myself and learn how to write classes, and guide meditations. I feel like I learned all that and more."
