Charli has been practicing yoga since 2009 and teaching since 2012. After initially working as a Management Accountant for 10 years, she left her job to travel Central & South America, India and Thailand. She undertook her yoga teacher training whilst in India at Ayur Yoga Eco Ashram and qualified in Hatha Yoga. Upon returning to the UK and Finance work again she knew in her heart that there was more to life than the work she was doing, she felt unfulfilled and that life had no meaning. She started to teach yoga and it soon became apparent that this was her calling.
Since her first training, Charli has qualified in Vinyasa Flow with Mimi Kuo Deemer, Hot Yoga with Kristin Campbell, Yin Yoga with Norman Blair and 100 hours Anusara training with Bridget Woods Kramer. She is currently working towards her 500 hour training with Tiffany Cruikshank.
Charli has a passion for alignment and anatomy to help students work with pain and keep them safe in their practice. She teaches slow flowing alignment focused classes where movement is linked through the breath to allow the body a chance to let go of tension and relax, whilst positions are held to build strength and freedom in the body. She focuses on breath awareness, alignment, building strength and core work. Her approach to yoga and warm caring personality shine through in her teaching style. Sequences and postures are modified to be available different levels or those with injuries, with individual help given as encouraging hands on adjustments and verbal cues.
It is the transformative effect of Ashtanga yoga that keeps Charli dedicated to the practice whilst Vinyasa Flow allows her the freedom to be creative on the mat and create fun sequences that challenge and keep students on their toes.
