Yoga has been an important part of Chanel's life since the age of 12, thanks to free yoga classes given by an instructor who lived in her NYC apartment building. In 2006, she returned to yoga again while deployed overseas as an Army officer to balance her daily running and weight lifting routine.
Chanel believes that yoga is not only about the union of the mind, body, and soul but also the connection between yoga teacher and student. She became a teacher to foster a fun and safe space for students of all levels and backgrounds to practice.
Her sequences are creatively and intuitively woven together, providing her students with what their bodies and spirits most need in that moment. Chanel received her 200-hr yoga training, in 2016, from Mind the Mat Yoga studio in Alexandria, VA and her 50-hour yin yoga certification, in 2018, from Pure Prana studio in Alexandria, VA.
She understands the importance of balance and makes time for her other interests, which include: camping, creative writing, food, French, hiking, improve comedy, Pilates, Scotch, stargazing, storytelling, and world travel. A perfect day would involve all of the above.
