My Yoga Story
Yoga found me in London in the mid 1990s amidst a haze of career, ambition and living/working/partying hard. Blocked in a masculine world fighting to be an equal and never achieving my very high goals. I found myself in an Ashtanga session one Sunday afternoon in a crowed chic gym surrounded by people in the know I left dripping wet, exhausted and intrigued.
The journey had begun.
After years of body issues, dieting, body-loathing, addictions, over exercises, guilt-tripping I slowly began practicing the odd Sun Salutation.
A little breathing and meditation here, a change in attitude there…. to appreciate the subtle changes that started to happen in my life. My skin looked better, my tummy bloated and cramped less, I started to let go of what I thought I should be and started to be who I wanted to be. And now…. 
Thanks and Gratitude to all my teachers!
Charlotte’s style is now her own unique mix of many teachers and schoolings but here are a few of the influences along the way for which she is truly grateful.
Main school certified teacher training: Sivananda Vedanta School, (TTC and ATTC) with Shiva Rea (Prana Flow 200 hours), David Swenson (Ashtanga), Amazing teacher workshops with Lara Bauman (Quantum) and Sarah Powers (Yin/Insight Yoga), Rod Stryker (Para Yoga)
Gratitude to the continued influences of Elena Brower (Vira Yoga), Cassandra Kish (Vidyaa Yoga & some fab life coaching), Kathyrn Budig (Aim True!), Marc Holzman (Guerilla Yoga and a great all round person), Shiva Rea (Prana Flow and glowing radiant friend), Mika de Brito (Mika Yoga & TCPC – and for being a like-minded soul), Alessandra Pecorella for her radiance
Charlotte writes regular articles & blog posts particularly for Esprit Yoga magazine and also teaches regularly in Paris at the Yoga Village and Le Tigre as well as other studios local to Savoie & further afield.
She organises the annual Yoga Festival in Val d’Isère and co-organises the BLISS Yoga Festivals ….. Val d’Isère is happening in May 2015 (1st-3rd) and Bliss Bordeaux is on the cards for the weekend of 20th & 21st June 2015
Her personal practise and the benefits in her own life are her main inspirations to share and teach this wonderful art of yoga. Her teaching is the reflection of a healthy and happy life full of gratitude and joy. Classes are infused with music vibes and her feelings and practise of the moment as she takes inspirations from those around her, the seasons and her own life. A class becomes a shared experience and one with just a touch of humour.
This Winter Charlotte will be teaching a selection of classes in Val d’Isère, Tignes & Ste Foy as well as once a month in Paris at the Yoga Village.
