In 2019, Chelsea received a visa to move to the United Kingdom and set The Give Back Yoga Foundation up as a registered charity. She is currently spearheading an initiative to bring yoga programs for populations facing addiction, cancer, eating disorders, and PTSD to scale in the National Healthcare System.
