Charlies been practicing yoga on and off for 15 years, coming to it initially from a workout perspective. Following a life-changing trip to the Himalayan Yoga Institute in 2011, she decided to leave her job as an Assistant Buyer for The Disney Store, and deepen her knowledge of yoga.
In 2012, she became a certified teacher in Bali with WLYA - The Wise Living Yoga Academy (affiliated to The Yoga Institute of Santacruz, Mumbai, India), and came back to set up her own studio in Somerset, UK. Now Charlie teaches group classes at various top yoga centers and corporations in and around London and private one-to-ones.
Shes also currently the yoga instructor for the Harlequins rugby team, and also teaches internationally at resorts. She has recently set up a yoga and photography company called Sepia Lotus Retreats. Charlie caters the type of yoga she teaches to the needs of each individual. However, her public classes involve an innovative and forever changing style of dynamic Vinyasa flow.
Although extremely fast-paced at times, shes a perfectionist when it comes to correct body alignment, the synchronization of movement and breath, and the importance of a sumptuous, meditative relaxation. Her classes are down-to-earth, fun, creative, and challenging, but at the same time accessible, maintaining the philosophy that yoga is for all.
Charlie is a proud ambassador for Battersea, Sweaty Betty, and the wonderfully organic and fair trade coconut water, Coco Zumi. When she is not on the mat, Charlies at the sewing machine. She owns a textiles business called Shanti Living, selling a range of goods, from hand-made yoga bags, relaxation eye masks, bespoke clothing, and furniture.
The hotel where the retreat is to be held is located on The Langdale Estate - a beautiful award-winning 35-acre estate in Ambleside, set in the heart of the secluded Langdale Valley in Cumbria - North West England, beneath the imposing skyline of the famous Langdale Pikes.
A natural woodland haven with streams and tarns, Lake District is dotted with massive millstones and other carefully preserved reminders of its history as a 19th century gunpowder works.

"Ive been practicing yoga for about three years with many different instructors. Its easy to say that Charlie has been the most influential, and by far the best instructor Ive had. Shes awesome! Her classes are a fun environment to learn in, where you always feel challenged to push yourself further. She is truly an inspiring yoga teacher who is extremely passionate about what she does."

"Following one of Charlies workshop at Yogahaven, I fell head over heels with her class. I love her attitude, I love how she teaches her classes and I also really enjoy the intimacy of her classes and the fact that, given the number of students per class, she is able to adjust everyone. I also love the fact that Charlie pushes you to do things that scare you, and that the sequences are different at each class. I like her spontaneity. I have now taken Charlies class for about two months and after some practice, I feel like my whole practice has changed and I am now able to come into postures that I would have never imagined I could do so easily. I think I am simply more conscious of my body, more confident, and stronger. I absolutely adore Charlies classes and I highly recommend everybody to give it a try!"

"I have just started my yoga journey and I was so lucky that I met Charlie! From the very first class I loved yoga and Charlie. She is amazing, very sweet, and professional. You can really see that yoga is her passion and she certainly knows what she is doing. Each of Charlies classes is different, but always wonderful, challenging, fun, with a lot of moves, and very cool music. At the end of each class, I always leave with the feeling that Charlie made me grow in my practice - both physically and mentally."

"I had the honor of meeting Charlie Morgan, on a health retreat in the Caribbean where she held the most amazing yoga classes and workshops. Im so thrilled I can attend her classes here in London. Her sessions are very nurturing (she even incorporates mini scalp and shoulder massages), playful (loads of genuine laughter), grounding, professional, and energizing at the same time. Love them!"

"Just wanted to say thank you Charlie for your restorative class! The energy youve created, your guidance and support, let me go further and I managed to let go of some very deep memories from my past. Although I have been practicing yoga with many great teachers for years, I have never experienced anything like that. This was something extraordinary and the feeling of trust and freedom that I experienced during that class will definitely stay with me for some time. I went to your other classes and every time I felt the same - magical energy flow, care, and trust. I dont know how you do it, but keep doing it, you are a talented yoga teacher!"
