I have spent my career researching how to support a dancer's longevity by focusing on health and proper training practices.
Our dance teachers excel in their mastery of the art of dance, but there is only a select few that are scientists and understand the physiology and desired adaptations of a dancer's body.
I have always looked at dance as both an art and a science.
I have surveyed hundreds of dancers who tell a similar tale: chronic conditions have plagued their career, unhealthy eating patterns have damaged their metabolism, overtraining has lead to injury and illness, and the list goes on...
I have been there. And I have studied all the science. I have worked with dancers in their injury care, prevention, and treatment. I have conducted studies, done my thorough research, and presented at international conferences. And I am dedicated to learning every single day!
A lifetime accumulation of knowledge aimed at helping you.
I have undying passion, uncompromising integrity, and the desire to help as many people I can!
No gimmicks, no magic products. Sound scientific knowledge put into practice with a coach who will hold you accountable for your goals and motivate you every step of the way!

"Chellana has had a life changing impact on me. Her pure passion for dance/nutrition and training is addicting.
As a fitness professional, she not only preaches a healthy lifestyle but lives it herself, helping guide others on nutrition as well as personal training. Chellana is the ideal transformation coach for anyone seeking lasting results
through proper nutrition as well as a solid gym program."

"I have graduated from elementary school, high school, and college, and have had many teachers in my day. However, not one of them compares to Chellana. She was one of the most influential teachers I have ever had. She not only made learning fun, but went above and beyond to make sure that the entire class understood the material. She was always putting in extra time to ensure that each of her students was successful in the program. She made sure she did
everything she could do in order to get all of us employed at the end of the program.
The best part about having Chellana as a teacher was that she did much more then just teach us. She was our friend and mentor. She genuinely cares about each of her students and continues to check in on all of us even a year after graduating! She became a friend and a role model. Chellana is one of the most driven individuals that I know. She is the head of education at NPTI, Dance Instructor at Dean College, Fitness Coach /Competitor as well as an amazing mother an wife.
I would say she is what women everywhere should aspire to be.
I am so grateful that I had the pleasure of studying under Chellana and continue to be amazed by everything she continues to accomplish in her life!"
Head Trainer at Orange Theory Fitness
Chellana was a knowledgeable, passionate and engaging professional.
She came into the class every day with such great energy, it was infectious.
As students she engaged us daily through well thought out instruction, discussion, media and demonstration.
She found a way to make the education entertaining and even fun with her keen wit.
I am grateful to have had Chellana as my instructor at NPTI and highly recommend her services.
Thank you, Chellana, it was truly a pleasure.
