      "I was Lucky to meet Charlie and attend her RYT 200HR Teacher Training in Portugal April 2017, this was one of my greatest choices so far. Charlie is a lovely and knowledgeable yoga teacher. The course is intensive but well planned, and you learn a lot about the basic yoga philosophy, traditions, history, teaching principals, anatomy and poses. I can promise you that you will learn a whole lot about yourself as well. Before I attended the course I was struggling with creating flows for my own practice and for others, now I feel much more comfortable both in my own practice and in teaching others. The course is held at a beautiful villa in Algarve, Portugal, rooms are nice, food is amazing and the surroundings are wonderful. The Yoga,the course, the place, all the great people and least but not last Charlie, made this an incredible experience and something I would recommend everyone!"

      "I had the opportunity to meet Charlie for a Yoga teacher training in April 2017. This was an intensive training with a lot to learn from both a theoretical and practical standpoints as the objective is to be fully capable of teaching a Yoga class safely once you have completed and passed all exams. It simply wouldn't have been possible without such an amazing teacher, one of the best teachers I have ever had the chance to work with across all subject matters. Charlie is passionate, fully dedicated, hard-working, a fantastic professional and deeply committed to share her knowledge and experience with her students. The course program was very well planned and structured. I would definitely recommend the teacher training course and Charlie's Yoga classes!"

      "I have been following the 200hrs Teacher Training in Portugal with Charlie and I only can say that this was the best choice ever. The course is hold in a wonderful house near Lagoa with an incredible swimming pool, a kitchen where it is good to eat and prepare meal and very nice bedrooms. This course is an intensive one and there is a lot of information to understand and assimilate: anatomy, yoga history and fundamentals, teaching principles ... But Charlie organized the course in a way that you manage to learn that incredible amount of information in this short amount of time. In 1 week, you will start to learn how to teach and get to become more and more comfortable doing so and by the end of the course, if you put the right amount of effort into it, you will truly become the very first version of the teacher inside you, and not only the passionate yogi that you already are. Charlie is rigorous but fair, and will always be there for support and help. She is transmitting her passion and knowledge and help you grow into this new professional person you are becoming. This was truly a life changing experience and I am glad it has been with IndivYoga and Charlie."

      "To become a certified yoga teacher, I attended an intensive and most beneficial teacher training with Indiv Yoga, Charlie Brown. Apart from teaching us, a group of nine, all the skills and knowledge, we had to know for the diploma, Charlie was always helpful, joyful and so kind. I learnt a lot apart from the basics in teaching, I got a deeper understanding of meditation and mindfulness. Accommodation was luxurious, the surrounding gorgeous"

      "When decided to come to Portugal for a Yoga teacher training I was sceptical about the fact that, would I feel confident enough after the course to teach? How much in detail am I going to learn about yoga? I had so much more questions. "

      "The course completely exceeded my expectations. It was so well planned out and designed to ensure our success. I struggled with designing flows and my breathing technique beforehand. Now I’ve learned how to do this my own yoga practice also got so much better. I did not only feel confident to teach afterwards but also I came out with an open heart and mind. Learned so much more than just the physical side of yoga. Thank you Charlie for this amazing experience!"

      "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!"

      "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."

      "I attended Charlie's RYT 200 hour course in September 2016, and was incredibly impressed and inspired by her centered, knowledgeable and tailored approach to training new yoga teachers. The group of 9 women she was training had different needs, backgrounds and first languages but Charlie's professionalism and natural talent for teaching really brought the entire group together into a productive, enjoyable and ultimately very successful group of trainees (who I'm really lucky to count myself one of!)"

      "The variety of areas Charlie covered in the Indiv yoga course was varied and interesting (encompassing yoga for children, the elderly, pre- and post-natal) whilst being in depth enough to give us all a deep understanding of the needs of these clients. The course was well balanced between practical teaching, theory and group work and I enjoyed ever minute of it. I'm very lucky to be an alumni of the Indiv Yoga course and lucky to train with someone who's clearly very passionate about what they do!"

      "It is a real pleasure to attend Charlie’s yoga classes. Charlie is an absolute master yoga practitioner, highly professional and a wonderful teacher. Her ability to combine patience, careful instruction and individual attention means that each class is both suited to your individual needs as well as the right amount of physical challenge; all the while listening to her soothing voice which is like a mantra unto itself. Charlie is really knowledgeable in what the body needs, and more than once I have walked out of class in much better shape than going in, having worked on through particular issues with tailor-made exercises. I always leave feeling invigorated and highly energized, and have the best sleep afterwards. There are different classes to suit different needs. My favourite is the Power Yoga class which gives a great physical workout, and total distress. A good way to work up a sweat! Otherwise, there are slower paced and more relaxing options, some of which are tailored for specific groups"
