Chelsea bird hoard // artist, designer, yoga teacher
A Michigander at heart, I live + work in Seattle, Washington, where the fresh air and beautiful communities of the Pacific Northwest have given me a second home. I live in possibility – inspired by people and art, travel and words. I feel most alive when I'm experiencing a new place. I breathe easiest in alpine air. I'm happiest surrounded by loved ones. I feel most myself in my yoga practice, or when I'm making something beautiful and unique.
Chelsea Bird Yoga, RYT-500 // creative vinyasa flow — grounded in self awareness + embodiment
I fell in love with yoga because of how it makes me feel about myself and the world around me. Yoga, over and over again, brings a sense of perspective, strength, and oneness to my life. I teach a nurturing, fluid, and creative vinyasa flow that brings focus to feelings over shapes. My intention is for my students to gain connection, awareness, and autonomy in their practice — leading to strength, embodiment, and a deeper understanding of themselves. I hope that people leave class more in tune with their minds and bodies — grounded, open, loved, and alive.

Birdie // jewelry + adornment
I have been silversmithing, designing, and making jewelry for over 15 years. Jewelry design has taught me patience and craftsmanship – and to this day, the work allows me to surprise myself. My current focus is on my passion project — birdie — but I also love to work with clients on custom pieces. Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like to discuss creating something special.
birdie is a culmination of all my passions. It is a handmade line of jewelry + adornment inspired by heritage, connection, and the cosmos. Through birdie I hope to live out + continue creating my purpose, as well as encourage, support, and empower others in doing so.
