Chelsea Roff is a nationally-recognized author, speaker, and yoga instructor. She serves as Managing Editor for the Chopra family’s online media platform, Intent, and writes regularly for The Huffington Post, Yahoo, Care2, and Yoga Journal. Chelsea’s story of recovering from anorexia and a subsequent stroke was recently showcased on Sanjay Gupta’s CNN show, Human Factors and on the front page of AOL.com.
Prior to entering the world of journalism, Chelsea worked as a researcher in a Psychoneuroimmunology laboratory. While in university, she completed two Honors Theses: one on how stress affects mental, emotional, and social health, and the second on how mind-body practices like yoga can improve the outcome of chronic immune diseases like HIV/AIDS and cancer.
Chelsea currently lives in Venice, California, where she can be found cartwheeling across the beach, hiking in the mountains, and practicing yoga poses on her little pink scooter. She speaks regularly at recovery centers, universities, and professional organizations and supports leadership teams at yoga service organizations around the country to more effectively serve in-need populations.
