Chantel first came to the mat in 2000 in search of pain relief from scoliosis. Later, yoga became a means for motherhood, and after that, a remedy for anxiety. Today, Chantel is still finding new ways to replenish, refine, and heal her body and mind through yoga, making it one of the most powerful wellness tools she has experienced. Chantel teaches an alignment-based, medium-paced, meditative Vinyasa flow. Sequences are intended to build purifying internal heat, leaving students both invigorated and grounded with a renewed sense of calm. Chantel completed her teacher training with Maile Sivert and Caroline Kelley at The Mindful Body. Both are long-time students of master Ashtanga teacher, Richard Freeman, who, along with David Swensen and Jason Crandell, continue to greatly enrich and inspire her teaching style today. Chantel blends her yoga practice with motherhood, marketing, and mental health advocacy, focused on prevention for youth, and blogging for the Huffington Post.
