YogashalaWaterdown has such a comfortable and low pressure atmosphere. I always look forward to spending time there. Wonderful teachers and staff, and a perfect variety of class options. So happy to be part of this environment.
Chantelle has always had a passion for health and fitness and an interest in how the mind and body work together. Out of curiosity she took her first yoga class in 2007 at her local gym and she instantly felt drawn to its balance of gentle, healing qualities mixed with physical challenges and mental focus. Since then yoga became a regular practice for Chantelle, it was a way to calm her anxiety and nurture her body - no matter what difficulties she faced in life yoga was there as a source of comfort and stability. She counts her blessings on and off her mat and she appreciates the benefits that yoga brings to her life.
As a way to deepen her practice and step out of her comfort zone she completed De La Sol’s 200hr Teacher Training program in 2016 and has taken workshops on trauma sensitive yoga, meditation and Thai massage. As a lifelong student of the practice she hopes to continue her learning journey and study yin and restorative yoga.
She aims to create classes that are welcoming and inclusive while being challenging and nurturing. Everyone comes to their mat for a different reason, with different lives and paths. Her wish is for everyone to step off their mat feeling accomplished, energized and with a sense of peace in their hearts that they can take with them into their day.
