Faculty - Dr. Chelsea Jackson Roberts

Chelsea Jackson Roberts is an internationally celebrated yoga instructor, educator, and passionate change agent skilled in the art of cultivating community through yoga. With over a decade of teaching experience in both asana and meditation, Chelsea’s unique teaching style makes yoga accessible to a wide range of levels and her balance between sweat and sweet surrender makes her classes a favorite for beginners and regular practitioners.

Chelsea’s energetic sequences, dope beats & signature smile have gained the attention of international pop artist Janelle Monáe who practices with Chelsea and recently invited her to join her choreography team because of her musical taste and asana combinations. Chelsea has graced the cover of Yoga Journal and her enthusiastic and inviting way for sharing yoga also prepared her for the opportunity to teach yoga at the White House Easter Egg Roll in 2016.

Chelsea received her Ph.D. in Educational Studies with a focus in language, literacy, and culture. Her research within the field of yoga served as the foundation for her current community program for teen girls, Yoga, Literature, and Art Camp at Spelman College.
