Chelsea Wise

Meet Chelsea Wise: "For 20 years I have had the honor of working and studying with a diverse array of teachers, from shamans to midwives.
"My work as a yoga teacher, healer and artist is a process of connecting and returning. It is the journey of making the unknown, known. It is the acknowledgement that everything is alive and the conversation that is longing to be heard. It is the accessing of a profound power in the innate intelligence within us and all around us."
