Meet the Instructors
Chelsea has been practicing yoga since 2009. She is certified and registered as a 200 E-RYT & 500 RYT with 6 years of combined teaching experience in Florida, Peru and Western North Carolina. Trained in Vinyasa and Hatha styles with a self developed affinity for the depth of Yin, she loves combining styles both in personal practice and shared instruction for a balance of fluidity and creative self expression.
Hannah Jackson (Vinyasa yoga)—Hannah received her BA in psychology and an MA in experimental psychology from Appalachian State University. Hannah has been practicing yoga for six years and has been certified to teach for over a year. Hannah has been an athlete for most of her life and was first drawn to yoga because of the physical aspect, but also due to her struggles with anxiety. Over time, she delved deeper into the spiritual, mental and philosophical aspects of yoga. She believes that, while yoga can be a great way to exercise and express movement, spiritual exploration and self-study are integral tools to effective practice. With this, Hannah enjoys incorporating yogic philosophy into her flow, while paying close attention to alignment for safety and exploratory purposes. Coming from a psychology Hannah has found that a lot of what she has studied is directly applicable to practicing yoga. Having foundational knowledge on the basics of human thought and behavior aids in being able to help her students learn more about themselves so that they can return to the basis of their fundamental goodness. Hannah strongly believes that practicing yoga will not fix your life, but instead will give you the insight and tools so that you can have more control over your life—becoming less dependent and more free.
