    "Everthing very well organized. It would help if there would be an assistant to correct while we were practicing teaching. It seemed a lot of work for only one person :-)"

    "I was totally new to yoga, and not really sure what to expect. Charlie assessed my condition accurately, and took time to understand my other activities, and interests. As a result, as well as enjoying the practice for its own sake, it has also opened significant improvements in my other sports and activities. Works on my hip and lower back flexibility has made me much more comfortable whilst riding my motorbike, and also allowed me to reach more aerodynamic positions while cycling without crippling myself. Charlie’s instruction is clear and perceptive. This leads to a sense of confident progress and achievement."

    "I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Charlie for many years, yet it’s only more recently that I’ve come to appreciate her contribution to yoga. I enjoy all sports and like many, turned to yoga to complement the fast pace physical activities I’ve been involved with for many years. Charlie is not only meticulous in the way she teaches this spiritual exercise, yet is also incredibly knowledgeable, and understanding; especially when it comes to inflexible beginners like myself. Yoga is an environment of trust and mental discipline which Charlie balances incredibly well, while continuously helping to better individual performance, and in my case flexibility! And yes, I have got better! Her classes are nothing but a joy to partake in! Thank you, Charlie!"

    "Charlie has a natural ability to connect with children and build rapport with them at their level. Her yoga therapies are individually tailored to each child’s need whether its confidence building, concentration improvement, or simple meditation to relief anxiety. Each class is designed as building blocks on a child’s development and interests. Our child enjoys Charlie’s yoga classes and we can see the fruits of her work in our everyday lives. Based on our personal experience, we highly recommend her private classes!"

    "Charlie is an expert in many areas of yoga, which allows her to tailor individual classes according to every student’s needs. At the same time, she is able to conduct group classes and pay special attention to each student. I started having private yoga lessons with Charlie in 2009, and was very pleased with her teaching skills, passion, and knowledge of yoga and the human body. She pushed me in a way that made me want to do more, and I could feel and see the results very soon. I prefer to train very early in the mornings and Charlie was very reliable with the schedule we set up. Anyone who is interested in improving their health through yoga will benefit by using Charlie’s knowledge and experience."

    "I had an unforgettable chance to participate in Charlie’s hot yoga classes in Lisbon. She is one of the best instructors I have ever met in my life. She can combine all those indescribable qualities that you can feel when a great yogi walks into the room. Her presence commands attention, her energy can pick you up, it can make you feel at ease, it can make you feel welcome, and it can make you want to practice yoga more and more. Charlie brings her spiritual energy into class, which lifts you up, and provides a sense of purpose while you’re on the mat. She changed my body, mind, and soul."

    "I have known Charlie´s family for sometime, and I kept hearing from people about how brilliant she was, but I was too scared to try yoga. Having had some medical problems last year, I decided to take the plunge and try it, and I couldn’t have wished for a better instructor to introduce me to the benefits. Charlie gives clear instructions and makes you feel totally comfortable from the first minute. She is patient and knowledgeable about how best to proceed between poses, whether you are able to or not, taking into consideration my ability, agility, and keeping me motivated. I ended up loving it and I don’t think I would have achieved it if it hadn’t been for Charlie. So thank you, Charlie. You are a star. I recommend her and will be booking my partner in with me at the next opportunity."

    "I took Ashtanga yoga flow classes with Charlie twice a week in Lisbon for about a year and a half (until she moved to Geneva). Classes were taught at my workplace, at lunchtime, which was extremely practical. Although I’ve practiced yoga on and off for over ten years, there were about six of us attending these classes, with widely varying experience. Still, Charlie was brilliant in her ability to adapt each class and teach asana to each student’s level. Beginners weren’t made to feel like they lagged behind. The more advanced students were always made to feel challenged. So, it was not an easy feat! Charlie is professional but approachable, and really friendly. I felt confident in her knowledge, and she’d offer adjustments, or suggest alterations, as needed. I miss Charlie and her classes."

    "I really enjoy my yoga classes with Charlie as she blends the perfect combination I am seeking in a yoga instructor. She shows us the process and lets us complete it at our pace,. Simultaneously, she is a meticulous teacher, n which she makes sure that we are using the correct postures at all times in order to maximize our yoga experience, while certifying that we do not injure ourselves while doing so. Being an individual who has a chronic back condition and bad posture, I find that the yoga classes with Charlie have had the results of bettering my posture, while alleviating my back condition, and the benefits of balancing the body’s overall energy. I feel great after a yoga class!"

    "As a beginner, I must say Hot yoga with Charlie has been a true blessing. She creates a calm and relaxed atmosphere, in which she gives us close attention in helping us with the positions, correcting us whenever needed, and giving us a true understanding of what yoga is all about."

    "Being Indian, I have experienced learning yoga from various instructors growing up. The reason I find Charlie a lot more effective is that not only is she very professional, but she customizes yoga to suit every individual's needs. In group classes and in my private yoga sessions, she’s also very patient and spends a lot of time understanding in detail what each individuals issues are, and then tackling them sustainably over the course."
