Charlie started recognizing the benefits of yoga and mindfulness at the age of 14 when recommended to her for anxiety and insomnia. She started teaching yoga professionally in 2009 and then certified to be able to train yoga teachers and give the RYT 200hrs YTT. She has dedicated herself to her continued study of yoga, science, mindful meditation, and nutrition. She prides herself on bringing these benefits to her students and training them to be able to teach a mix of yoga styles that they can tailor to any type of individual and their objectives, professionally, safely and confidently.

"Incredible and Rewarding YTT in Beautiful Portugal!"
I recently finished a 200 hour yoga teacher training with Indiv Yoga in Carvoeiro, Portugal and it was one of the most incredible and rewarding experiences of my life. Charlie is unbelievably knowledgeable in all things yoga and it's apparent that she genuinely loves sharing her knowledge and experiences with her students on the course. She remains very professional throughout the training, while being incredibly supportive and compassionate for those she teaches. Being immersed in the program allowed the group to really take in and appreciate the history and transformation of yoga, the principles that lay the groundwork for the practice, and the practical application of teaching others. In two weeks, I feel a total transformation in how I think about yoga, my own personal practice, my perspective of the world as a whole, and who I am as an individual. I left the course feeling prepared to continue my journey and share all I’ve learned with others in my own community, while feeling comfort knowing that I have Charlie’s continued support as I continue to grow as a yogi. I am so grateful to have gone through this amazing experience and I absolutely recommend doing a course with Charlie and Indiv Yoga.

"Couldn’t have been better!"
It was just perfect! Charlie is an amazing teacher and a wonderful human being. We had all the support in the world, in all aspects. I feel fully ready to start teaching, besides knowledge she gave us confidence.
Also, the place is absolutely beautiful!

Squeezing in the majority of 200 hours of YTT within 2 weeks means it is by nature intense and overwhelming (but this might soon change to 3 weeks). However, this immersive experience with Charlie’s training really makes what I learned about yoga unforgettable and fun.
Initially, I chose Indiv yoga because of its philosophy — to make yoga approachable to everyone. And that is consistently reflected throughout the course design.
The entire training showed a lot of professionalism and care.
Charlie herself has had a wide range of experience in different schools of yoga, with which she could present yoga to us in a more comprehensive and unbiased manner. On top of the teaching poses and modifications (to kids, elderlies, people with minor injuries), we also discussed about the history/philosophy, breathing techniques, tried a wide range of meditation practices, all of which are presented in a truly unbiased manner.

"A very nice, deep and rich experience"
Thank you so much Charlie for the amazing 2 weeks of learning and growing. I like the way the course was structured. It was a nice challenge, mentally and physically. Im very happy that I decided to join on that journey. The quality of the teaching was deep, physically and spiritually. I came to learn more about Yoga and I got served! I feel like this course will help me in my personal life, and make me a better human. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to grow, learn, get better, or explore new horizons. In bonus, the food was excellent and in big quantity! Oh, and the Villa is amazing!

"Yoga teacher training, and a whole lot more!"
I loved the location, the house, the whole set up, but mostly I loved Charlie's whole ethos and the way she conducted the course was outstanding! She is a fountain of knowledge and experience, and knows exactly how to guide people to become confident and knowledgeable teachers who understand the true meaning of yoga. The course is intense, with a lot to learn in 2 short weeks, but it just goes to show what is possible when done in the right way. It was a beautiful and transformative experience!

"A lifechanging journey"
Charlie has been living as a yogi for more than 14 years, having taught embassadors and various different private clients and group classes, I could not imagine a better teacher. In Indiv Yoga, the individual is in the center, so you learn about how to adapt the yoga to different audiences and needs. She puts a lot of emphazize on correct alignment and the traditional yoga principles, yoga styles covered were: hatha, vinyasa flow, sivananda, kids yoga, yoga for pregnancy, restorative yoga and chair yoga. We also learned different meditation techniques and yoga philosphy. Two housekeepers were cooking food during the day, the fridge was full of salads and all sorts of things, so you could always prepare your own food.
Recommendations for your trip: Due to duration of the course it is a lot of content to cover and to study in short time. The schedule allows short breaks, so you may want to get a watch to ensure punctuality. It can get a bit stressful as you have to do homeworks and study for your exams, be prepared to put in the work required. I would recommend looking into the biggest muscles, joint movements and bones beforehand, as this will help to understand the alignment cues better and will also be knowledge needed for the exams.
If you are a german speaker, the book "Yoga" from Inge Schöps may be helpful to prepare for the course.
With Charlie, you will learn the tools required to be a great yogateacher.

"Excellent Teacher Training course "
Charlie was an amazing, supportive teacher with an incredible amount of knowledge. She understood our concerns and took time to make sure everybody was supported in the group. It is extremely good value for money, the villa and area are beautiful, and the course is packed and intense. I learnt so much about Yoga and myself on this incredible journey.

"15-day yoga teacher training with Charlie"
I had one of the best 2 weeks of my life!
Charlie is amazing and filled the house with so much love and spirit from day 1. She has a wonderful and inspiring personality, lots of experience and teaches with passion, dedication and pays attention to every little detail.
The atmosphere was fantastic at this lovely property with its beautiful garden, swimming pool. Everything was clean, the yoga equipment/material was of high quality and the meals were healthy and delicious.
Undertaking this course with Charlie was without a doubt the right decision and I couldn’t imagine being better prepared and confident to start teaching yoga and passing on the knowledge I acquired.
Thanks for everything Charlie! Namaste
