I'm Chel, and I believe we all have the power within us to enjoy good health, happiness and prosperity. We do so through treating our bodies well, practicing mindfulness and compassion and embracing creativity and play! Dancing frees me. Yoga quiets my mind. Travel fills me with wonder!
Growing up, I never was a gymnast or extreme athlete. But in my late 20's I found a passion for pole dancing and yoga that has lead me to living a life I never dreamed. This once very self-conscious girl performs on stage as "Gypsea BombChel." I also share what I have learned teaching classes and workshops for yoga, pole dance and hoop dance. I want to share with others these healing art forms of self expression and play!
I've trained all over the world, meditating Nepal and visiting temples in Southeast Asia, studying yoga in California and with intensive 200-hour training from British Columbia, hoop dancing on magical islands of Bali and Thailand! I've learned circus arts from some of the world's best hoopers while living and performing in San Diego! I've also learned a great deal about compassion by volunteering with orphans and underprivileged kids in Sri Lanka, Peru and Mexico. I'm living my dream, which is to help people by sharing my passions via teaching, performing and writing - all while living on a beautiful island and traveling. I can help coach you to achieve your dream too!
I am a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified instructor and am Reiki level 1 and 2 certified. Outer Banks, North Carolina, is my home, but I also roam the world always seeking new knowledge to improve my performance art and a vibrant blend of life experiences.
