Charlotte started her journey with us as a young yogini and volunteer in 2012, a six-month experience which quite literally changed her life. Having learned a new, simpler way of living, she committed to return to London, a place she had previously turned her back on, to continue a career in media which she had once tried to escape. Her time away from her ´life´ had taught her that she wasn’t defined by a place, a job, or her things, and that she always had a choice. Yoga became her compass, an internal light which when strong will shine through even in the big smoke.
Crescent-shaped Santorini is considered the precious gem of the Aegean. With its white-washed clifftop villages set against the deep blue sky, multicolored beaches, vast volcanic vineyards, crystal clear waters and world famous sunsets, it is easy to fall under the spell of this magical, mythical island.
The island exploded into being as a result of 12 huge eruptions over 20,000 years with the collapsing volcano creating a huge caldera (crater) in the sea. You can even scuba dive in this giant lagoon, to adventure into the crater and discover for yourself what’s left of the opening of the volcano.
