Chelsea Banares has been dedicated to working with children and families for many years. Chelsea has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and Child, Adult, & Family Services from Iowa State University as well as a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mount Mercy University. Upon moving to Chicago, she combined her mental health background and passion for supporting children and families with the benefits of yoga and meditation. She is delighted to be a guide for youth by teaching them through movement and play while recognizing and respecting each child’s individuality. Her goal is to provide kids with an outlet that sparks imagination, builds self-esteem, helps them discover new things, and of course just have some plain old fun! Chelsea is certified to teach yoga for children through Rainbow Kids Yoga.
