In 2011 Charlie decided to quit her job as a fashion buyer and embarked on a 7 month adventure around India to take some time out to source fabrics and trimmings with the view to starting her own textile business. Following a life-changing retreat to The Himalayan Yoga Institute, Charlie’s trip to an unplanned turn and she returned to the UK, via Bali, as a qualified yoga instructor. Since then, she has taught group classes at various top yoga centres and corporations in and around London, private one-to-ones and to professional athletes, including the Harlequins and England rugby teams and led multiple 200 hour teacher trainings.
Charlie has also travelled around the world sharing her love for yoga; at resorts, on yachts and at private villas and retreat centres. Charlie is also a life coach, and this is something that she integrates into all her classes and is incredibly passionate about.
Charlie’s classes are light hearted and fun – a playful, creative and forever changing style of dynamic Vinyasa Flow accompanied by uplifting tunes. Although Charlie’s flow classes can be challenging , she is a perfectionist when it comes to correct body alignment, the synchronisation of movement and breath, and the importance of a sumptuous, meditative relaxation to close.
The most important thing for Charlie is that all her classes are inclusive and accessible, maintaining the philosophy that ‘yoga is for all’. Charlie also teaches yin, pregnancy and yoga nidra.
