Chelsea Paige-Crabtree

Growing up as a dancer and singer in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, Chelsea was always active and very in tune with her physical body. After having moved to New York City to attend Hunter College, injuries and a tight schedule kept her from dancing for a time, during which she began to realize how becoming out of touch with the physical body can have drastic effects on the state of the mind. However, when a friend introduced her to a Vinyasa yoga practice, Chelsea was immediately enamored by the physical parallels between dance and a Vinyasa flow, as well as the benefits of connecting the breath to movement, (which also had an amazingly positive effect on her singing), and bringing more of an awareness to her physical body and emotional self. Having completed her 200-hr certification with New York Yoga in 2010, Chelsea loves sharing the benefits of yoga with students of all levels. She teaches a Vinyasa class that focuses on connecting the breath to each movement, opening up the body through the physical asana (poses) and using the breath throughout the flow to unify the efforts of the yogi. Chelsea cheerily instructs her students through an encouraging class, focusing on correct alignment to develop strength, endurance and flexibility, while using the breath to create tapas and purify the body, always finishing with a restorative savasana. In 2013, she trained in the art of Thai Yoga Massage, and enjoys practicing and witnessing the effects of this healing modality as well. Having also been fortunate to be mentored as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, Chelsea has several years of experience in training and teaching children and adults from the ages of 3 through 85, and more recently enjoys sharing yoga with her 2yr old son!
