Chelle Atma Devi
Chelle Atma Devi began practicing Yoga in 1996 with her then boyfriend, Dave. At that point in her life she was working in finance at the World Trade Center in Manhattan & living a life of self-indulgence in the city that never sleeps.
Like many others, Chelle Atma Devi took her first class at a gym with Dave. Knowing nothing of Yoga, she was initially drawn to it because she had always been a dancer & was interested in maintaining her flexibility & staying in shape. What she didn’t see coming was the way Yoga would completely transform her.
At first, she found herself more off the mat than on. Life in New York City with Dave was exciting & a never-ending party. Yet somehow she kept returning to her mat, unable to deny the way she felt after class - returned to a deep inner peace, a state of being that was completely unclouded.
Chelle Atma Devi began studying Tribal Belly Dance & deepening her devotion to her Yoga practice in 2001. In 2006, she completed her first Yoga Teacher Training while co-directing Shezam World Tribal Belly Dance troupe in Syracuse, NY. Over the next few years her passion for learning & spiritual evolution led her to complete 2 additional Teacher Trainings in the Dharma Yoga lineage & finding her Guru. Eventually, she left her career in finance to teach Yoga & manage Dharma Yoga Syracuse before moving across the country to Denver in 2014.
During her years in NY, Chelle also discovered her healing path, completing her Master Reiki Attunement in the Usui Reiki system, becoming a Wellness Advocate for DoTerra Essential Oils & a Richway BioMat distributor.
Over the last 2 decades, Chelle Atma Devi has dedicated her life to service through her own Self-Realization & sharing what she has learned. She continues to deepen her own Knowledge through the exploration of Yoga, Dance & Healing, & her passion is working with others to help them find their own path of growth & transformation.
