Words from Chelsea “At this point, I have a hard time answering who I am and what I do for a living. I still hold a position as a financial analyst, but also run two studios, two large festivals, about 100 workshops and events a year, own commercial properties and apartments, flip houses, kids camps, and a teacher training. My days are filled but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

‘Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through’. That is what author and poet Anais Nin once said about life. My professional course is a living proof that I share her existential views.

After many years in corporate America I started to witness myself and those around me changing, both physically as well as their personalities. At that point, I knew I needed to find a way to balance my life. In parallel, I am currently a yoga studio owner and teacher, the Founder of the First NEPA Yoga Festival. I wake us everyday focused, excited, determined and motivated to pursue all this world has to offer.

In an old resume my summary read, ‘In a world of ceaseless innovation, I assert to adapt in my profession by continuously expanding on my career and creating a full spectrum of knowledge. ‘ I will continue to do this in all areas of my life and career, as a dreamer and a shaker.


  When I opened Nearme Yoga in 2014, I was looking to build a community, since then I met thousands of amazing people, started a festival, and now retreats. I also began a Yoga teacher training called INFINTYOGA with a dear friend Mara Morell from Mrida Seva Yoga.

Ultimately, I choose yoga to be my passion and my career; I choose to spread yoga to everyone in anyway possible. My dharma is to let yoga do the work and soothe the chaos of this world.”

Workshops: Yoga 101, 30 days to a New You, Happy Hour Yoga, Vino & Vinyasa, 7 week Charka Series, Beginner Series, Intermediate Series, 3 Month Kids Program with various workshops, Hands on Adjustments the appropriate way and partner yoga.
