For peace, relaxation and mind-body-soul healing
for Working Women
Our world is hyper-masculine. How do we integrate our innate feminine essence into our daily lives in a sustainable way, amongst a constant influx of societal demands?
The feminine brings magic to women's hearts. However, we have pushed this magic down, thinking we need to forfeit our wellbeing to pay for success.
Looking to cultures and societies such as Italy and ancient Celtic heritage, the elemental nature of the feminine offers wisdom to countries which have forgotten this magic.
We also looks to masculine and feminine polarity dynamics to allow a greater understanding of how these aspects play out within ourselves and within our relationships both at work and home.
Using a method both holistic and practical, women feel supported to cultivate a steady flow of ease and grace in their lives.
Feminine Embodiment Workshops are tailored to specific topics received during the initial client call, for both corporate teams and private groups.
The content and presentation is completely collaborative, engaging and relevant to particular challenges experienced by the group.
Practical takeaways from the workshops support their happiness in a long lasting way, enhancing their satisfaction both personally and professionally.
Ongoing Feminine Embodiment support and virtual resources offer women the opportunity to connect in with a community.

Yin Yoga, Vinyasa & Reiki Energy Healing
Reiki energy healing and Yin yoga:
Gentle yet powerful ways to relax and release
Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of most Vinyasa yoga classes that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles.
Fantastic for athletes as flexibility and range of motion is increased by releasing tension in the fascia, while lubricating joint tissues. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
While initially this style of yoga can seem quite passive or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from three to five minutes! really know what Yin Yoga is all about.
I combine Reiki energy healing (certified level II) with yin yoga so while you are in the 3-5 minute poses, I come around and place my hands on your upper or lower back and shoulders to provide you with some extra energy. I had a student describe this experience as "chicken soup for the soul," it's simply beautiful and relaxing universal energy.
Often essential oils are used and I like to incorporate crystals which I get the students to choose for themselves before class begins, and I explain to each student the properties of the crystal and the energy they've chosen for that day.
Reiki Energy Healing
I practice Reiki Energy Healing using the Usui method from Japan. Reiki energy is universal life force energy, channelled through me (but not from me!) I'm intuitively guided as I place my hands on different parts of my client's body, from head to toe.
Reiki an "energetic detox" as the energy goes to wherever it is needed, to flush out and bring new energy into parts of the body which have either energetic, emotional or physical blocks - quite often emotional blocks or stagnant energy manifests itself as a physical illness or injury. So Reiki allows energy to flow to those places and renew the client's energetic frequency.
A Reiki session is one hour (it can always be extended on the client's request) and I allocate an extra 20 minutes for debrief, so 1.5 hours total to be safe. Often clients experience warmth generated from my hands, or other pleasant sensations. I've had clients see colours in their mind's eye, or feel the presence of a loved one who has passed.
Sometimes clients feel "hands" on different places on their body (for instance, I have my hands cupped under the head and they also feel warmth and touch at their feet.) This is because I ask for the client's guides and my own guides to assist me with the session (nothing to be nervous about as everyone present is their for my client's highest good and healing!
Reiki "detox" works as other detoxes do in the way of bringing things up to the surface to then released. This is a natural process and clients often feel an overarching sense of peace, ease and rejuvenation following a Reiki session, while for some who have particularly stagnant old emotions stored in their body, Reiki might help those emotions arise and be present for them to work through.
I encourage journalling and meditation in the day following a Reiki session to continue working with the emotions. If possible, taking it easy in the hours following a Reiki session is best to keep in tune with the elevated frequency. Reiki is a powerful yet gentle tool for rebalancing, feeling at peace, and letting go of any old blockages in the body be it emotional, energetic or physical.
Vinyasa Slow Flow Yoga
Slow flow is similar to Vinyasa yoga in that it helps create a strong connection with the breath and poses are strung seamlessly together to target the whole body. The class feels like one long free-flowing pose, much like a moving meditation. This helps to not only create balanced strength and flexibility but also has a powerful calming effect on the nervous system inducing a feeling of deep relaxation. Don't be fooled though, the slowness means poses are held for longer and the intensity will build strength and balance over time.
Slow flow classes help students improve balance, core strength and agility. Don't let the "slow" part fool you! It can be more of an intense workout because spend more time in each yoga pose, engaging and focussing your energy. I always encourage students to listen to their bodies, and to challenge themselves when it's right for them, and to soften their practice when it's right for them at that time.
For children's stress-relief, aiding in concentration, wellbeing and self-expression. Unlike many other yoga programs which simply scale adult practices down into child-size pieces, each practice is built from the ground up, creating an exclusively child-based yoga practice. This gives children the sometimes rare opportunity to just be kids within the context of yoga asana and meditation through creative storytelling.
Children learn to develop flexibility, focus, and coordination for a happy, healthy, balanced life. These programs have been developed for families and children at primary schools from age 5-15.

Yin Yoga & Reiki Energy Healing Workshop
Yin+Reiki is a practice I developed while teaching in Perth, Australia. I could feel my yoga students could use energy healing to help them move further through their energetic blocks.
It started with maintaining my hand positions as I demonstrated gentle physical assists to guide them deeper into their ground-based Yin postures. I settled my hands and energy focus on their lumbar, hips, shoulders, neck, head etc. for up to three minutes at a time for each student, continuously circulating around the room to provide energy healing as I verbally guided them through their Yin postures.
My students remarked afterward how they could see colours or images and feel heat, tingling or other sensations. Soon, students lined up at the doors to attend these unique classes. Yin+Reiki classes fledged into full three hour workshops integrating oracle cards, essential oils, crystals and the burning of frankincense to clear out old energy to invite in fresh, pure energy for students to carry into their week.
Emotional Release with EFT Tapping
A simple yet powerful tool you can do anywhere! Enter Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), aka tapping, a healing modality combining elements of somatic stimulation, exposure, and cognitive therapy calms the central nervous system.

I have been going to Chelsea's Sunday morning Yin Yoga sessions in Scarborough where she combines Yoga, Reiki, and Crystals. She puts in so much belief into her classes. Effort is one thing. Everyone that teaches Yoga has a passion for the practice but to have the unshakable, undeniable, true belief in everything that you are doing is rare. And Chelsea really does believe in everything she teaches at the classes and with a passion that makes her classes one of the most popular available to the studio.
There are some days where going to a Yoga session feels forced. You go to Chelsea’s classes because you really want to experience her style and enthusiasm.
I attended Chelsea’s workshop with yoga/reiki, crystal pendant making and chakra pendulum clearing. I had an wonderful 3 hours and Chelsea is an absolute professional and beautiful lady. She’s very passionate about what she teaches and the 3 hours were a true reflection of this. I can’t wait to attend another one!! Thank you Chelsea and well done xxx
We have a group of friends on our back lawn every fortnight and Chelsea comes to us and it’s always awesome. We’ve toned our bodies and relaxed our bodies along with our minds. Chelsea makes it fun and I’m not saying it’s easy. When she brings it she gets results, I've got results now my partner has joined in to get the toning and relaxation benefits.
Everyone leaves feeling renewed. It really is an overall good day once you’ve had a yoga class with Chelsea. Feeling enlightened and liberated.
I join Chelsea's yin class every Sunday morning. It is a total bliss and the perfect start into a relaxing and balanced day. Her spirit and energy is inspiring and uplifting. Chelsea has great knowledge about crystals and is always happy to share it and answer follow up questions. She applies Reiki throughout the class, which is amazing. I am really grateful for every class I join.
I have been attending yoga classes with a bunch of friends, we are all beginners, Chelsea has been amazing with us! Very patient. I leave every class feeling so content and relaxed, her presence is so calming, overall great person and a great experience
Chelsea is such a beautiful person! Her yin class is my favourite start to my Sundays. She has such a wonderful energy and her Reiki can only be described as a big warm hug for the soul.

Studio Energetics Captures
Chelsea Joy Arganbright, creator of Studio Energetics
Studio Energetics began as Chelsea Joy Yoga & Wellbeing in 2016 when I wrapped up my master's degree in Australia to realise I only wanted to focus on supporting the mental, physical and spiritual wellness of men, women and children in a deeply impactful way.
Seven years of teaching Yin and Vinyasa yoga in Perth, Sydney and London provided me with the unique opportunity to engage with unique individuals each week. This included young adults with disabilities during a contract with City of Gosnells in Perth, contracted to develop programs for disadvantaged women, teaching yoga and breathwork to primary school children, corporate businesspeople at Bankwest, for pre-boarded passengers at the Qantas business class lounge and for prisoners at a reintegration centre who were about to be released back into society.
The primary intention of my classes is for people to find peace, clarity and empowerment through movement and energy healing in a safe, zero-judgement environment. Each class has its own theme, for example in women's classes I love to invite ladies to connect with their own divine feminine in a flowing style, while for children's classes often calming and self-awareness are paramount. Men's classes are often about bringing in healthy masculine warrior energy culminating in the final soft stretching of Yin yoga (with Reiki, of course!)
Below are my studies that I draw on through my work:
200 hour teacher training from Yandara Yoga School, 2016
Reiki Level I & II certified, ReikiWA, 2016
Bachelor of Sociology, University of California Santa Cruz, 2011
Master of Urban Planning, Thesis Research on Designing Nature-integrated Built Public Spaces to Promote Wellness, 2014
Travel Energetics Astrology Reports
How do you fit in, and what makes you feel ‘home’? As an Irish-Spanish-Native American-German mixed blooded woman raised all over the states, Latin America and Australia, these questions always captivated me. The moment I could walk, my nomadic mother whisked me away in a Westfalia camper van for a three-year excursion driving from California, down the Yucatán Peninsula, through the jungles of Belize, Guatemala and Honduras.
These absolutely crazy, unconventional formative years were spent barefoot climbing ancient ruins, relieving myself in travel toddler potties, and dancing with indigenous Mayan children around Lake Atitlán. It deeply influenced my outlook on life to this day: how unequivocally freeing and nourishing it feels to head-first dive into the world, immersing yourself in rich cultures and engaging with fascinating people.
The travel bug stays with me, typically moving cities or countries every couple of years. Why do I now live between Sydney and London? Well, London is RIGHT on my Travel Energetics ‘Sun Line,’ enhancing self-esteem, recognition and giving you a shining feeling. Sydney is right on my "Jupiter Line," enhancing good fortune, opportunity and ease of life! I love helping people find where they are best suited in the world with the help of Travel Energetics, essentially travel astrology which combines astrocartography and the natal (birth) chart! With the help of the client's time and place of birth, I can get a full picture of where the best energies are waiting for them. This includes where they're most likely to feel inspired, find love, regain personal freedom, and feel lighter and happier. There's nothing more powerful than awareness!
