Celeste takes a very (w)holistic approach to health and fitness. She has been a certified personal trainer for over 5 years. She soon thereafter became a sports nutrition consultant to further help her clients reach their optimal health. She didn't stop there and took courses in human longevity. All of these things combined pointed her in the direction of yoga - she is a devout practitioner and also went to India in 2015 to become a RYT200 yoga instructor. Most recently she has gotten her Pre and Postnatal Fitness certification - her goals have always been to change stigmas about women and exercise, and to help women feel strong and comfortable in their own skin at all stages of their life. She also hopes to give women the chance to enjoy not just the physical, but the emotional and psychological benefits of being active and healthy. She wants to help as many people as she can live their life with optimal health and mobility.
Celeste started her original career at a young age, and spent a decade as a licensed optician. She worked a many of those years in a very specialized field of opticianry - working in very close contact with the Vancouver Children's Hospital with preemies, babies, toddlers, and young children with ocular birth defects and various vision problems. She has spent much of her life helping families in scary and difficult situations.
To help herself through the stress of this work, Celeste always turned to the gym as a release - sports and working out were always an integral part of her life and self. About 6 years ago, after suffering both a shattered collarbone and a serious concussion in a bicycle accident, Celeste realized that she could offer more of herself to help others in a different environment. Although she found her work very fulfilling on all levels, she was not truly happy. She studied to become a personal trainer, working specifically with women and has not looked back since. Her goals as a personal trainer have grown and changed into having a much more 'long view approach, not just focusing on the 'lose weight and get toned' aspect. She wants to help people become the most healthy they can be, and lead a long, active, happy, pain-free (except for muscle pain after classes, that is) life.

"Baby Chelsea was born on Christmas Eve. It was a long and tough labor, and I ended up having a c section. During contraction, I practiced my yoga breathing, and everyone (including the nurse) was amazed by how well I coped with the pain. I would like to thank you again for those awesome yoga classes, and hopefully I will see you again soon for future yoga classes with Chelsea."
