ABOUT CHARLIE ERYT500

Charlotte (Charlie) Stewart-Brown was born in London in 1981 and was eventually recommended Yoga and Meditation at 14 years old, after years of struggling with anxiety and insomnia.  After a degree in Psychology & Sociology, and some grueling years in business, she finally decided to finalise her RYT200 course and teach yoga full time.  With a difficult childhood in the pressure of London, Charlie started to find peace & focus through yogic breathing, zen meditation & different styles of yoga.  Now living in Switzerland with her husband, she has been practicing ever since and continued with meditation courses and qualifications in various types of yoga, to develop a therapeutic approach to a practice that every individual can benefit from. Ever since she has dedicated herself to her continued study of yoga, science, mindful meditation & nutrition. She prides herself on bringing these benefits to her clients and teacher trainees, and on the happiness and results they see and feel through their work together, eventually creating Indiv Yoga™.
