”One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.”
About The Instructors
Combined Chessy Kelley and Heidi Kvasnak have over 30 years’ experience studying and teaching yoga. Although they have trained and studied with different teachers and philosophies, they both believe in the life affirming practice of yoga as a game changer in life. You will benefit from their varied experience by learning multiple ways to conduct a class and from their unique specialties: Chessy in vinyasa yoga and meditation, Heidi in yoga therapeutics and restorative yoga.
Chessy is famous for her infections laughter, genuine warmth, invigorating yoga classes and deep meditations, while Heidi, a yoga instructor & business owner since 2005, lives for the sounds students make when responding to a great cue, a big opening, a shared chant or a deeply restorative practice.

WE ARE COMMITTED to facilitating your awakening, guiding you to your edge, igniting your heart and challenging your body, mind and spirit.
Whether you dream of teaching yoga or not, this journey will reveal the deep truth and beauty of who you are. We would be honored to be your guides on this life affirming pilgrimage. All ages and body types welcome.
“Remember that wherever your heart is there you will find your treasure. You’ve got to find the treasure so that everything you have learned along the way can make sense.”
Why this 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training?
THREE words: Beauty, Truth and Love
Our job is to help you remember and see the BEAUTY of your own heart. There is only one you, and when you remember who you are the whole world benefits. Our training space is clean, neat and beautiful to help you feel safe and welcomed. We keep our class size smaller so that we have the space for being fully present to you before, during and after the pilgrimage.
Our job is to affirm the TRUTH that lives in you. Fears, layers of protection, accepting what others have told you about yourself – all take you further away from the truth of who you are. These beliefs diminish your relationship to the beauty and goodness that is inherently present within your BE-ing. Learning to be completely truthful with yourself is scary, challenging, healing and affirming. This is how you grow in to your true authenticity – and we are there for you every step of the way.
Ultimately it is all about LOVE. We LOVE what we do and we will guide you back to your heart and back to the flow of energy that ignites you and sets you free. We will share both modern and ancient teachings on how to strengthen your capacity to choose LOVE over FEAR, and to choose that which is life-affirming, freedom-enhancing and aligned with your exquisite heart, on and off the mat.
