I recently did one of Charlie's courses for yoga teachers that have undergone their 200hr training. I chose a course specialising in Mindfulness and Meditation for 30 hours. Charlie is a wonderful teacher, and I was initially intrigued by the work that she has done in corporate settings and British airways, and the capacity to "cross over" to make yoga and meditation more accessible to all to share its benefits with those that may be initially sceptical. She is such a warm and knowledgable person, I absolutely loved being on the course and learned so much from her. She motivated me and the other students to really use our potential and "hone" our individual styles of guided meditations within our yoga teaching practice. Would definitely recommend to anybody interested in this area of yoga or for the Yoga Alliance's requirement every 3 years for 30 hours of additional study. Thank you Charlie! xo

What a brilliant learning experience and lovely yoga community to go back home with 🤍 Charlie is an incredibly knowledgable yoga teacher and has created a 2 week course focused on you becoming a competent yoga teacher, which I loved. We were teaching by day 3 and I left feeling confident to teach (and sequence) a 75 minute class. Due to the nature of the 2 weeks, so much information is packed into the course and a lot of time spent reading/studying as well as practicing. My only comment would be it would’ve been great to have more yoga lessons with Charlie herself as she has a wealth of knowledge, but due to a packed schedule and the focus being on our own teaching progression I’m not sure where we could’ve fitted this in on a daily basis! I have left with a much stronger personal practice as well as a deeper understanding of the history of yoga and mediation methods. I’d highly recommend this course for anyone looking to deep dive into yoga and hone their skills as a teacher in an immersive experience.

Thank you Charlie for the most amazing 2 weeks. Who would have thought that we could have learned so much and more so come out of it confident teachers with the knowledge to support us. An amazing group - lots of study but lots of laughs (and tea) too. If you are thinking of taking a YTT 200 take a leap of faith with Charlie you won’t regret it.

Charlie’s 200 hour TT course was incredible! Charlie is incredibly knowledgeable about yoga and meditation and genuinely cares about her students. The course is challenging but it’s well- organized and transforms curious yoga students into confident yoga teachers! I genuinely love everyone that I met here and the setting in Carvoeiro is divine. If you are thinking about it, you should definitely do it! Immerse yourself!

Had a wonderful two weeks teacher course here! Charlie is an amazing teacher with high standards. We learned a lot and I feel confident as a yoga teacher. It was definitely not a retreat, we had to work hard to get all the knowledge in.

I recently completed the 200-hour yoga teacher training with Charlie, and it was a truly life-changing experience ! The course is pretty intense - but its comprehensive curriculum covered all aspects of yoga, from its rich history and philosophy to anatomy, class planning, and lots of opportunities and feedback to start practicing our teaching. The villa, with its beautiful garden and pool in Portugal, provided the perfect backdrop for this inspiring learning experience. Charlie truly goes above and beyond to ensure each student receives the utmost from the program. Her passion for yoga is palpable, and she generously shares her vast knowledge not only of the practice itself but also the intricacies of the yoga business. The personal growth I experienced - not only as a Yogi, but also off the mat - was beyond my expectations. If you're seeking a yoga teacher training that combines depth of knowledge, practical teaching opportunities, and a nurturing environment, look no further.

I did my 200h YTT certification with Charlie, it was absolutely wonderful ! The amount of knowledge and wisdom you get is incredible ! Charlie as a teacher is amazing, she is authentic and really passionate about teaching, and she is always here for us. As a person, she is one of the best people I’ve met, with a pure heart and good intention. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher for my YTT ! I highly highly recommend her if you want to deepen your knowledge of yoga, not only on the physical aspect but also on the philosophy, history, different types of yoga, meditation, this course what what you need !

Je voudrais remercier Charlie pour notre formation 200hYTT au Portugal en nov 2023. Les deux semaines ont été parfaitement organisées autour du Yoga ! Charlie a une grande expérience de la discipline , est très disponible pour toutes questions au besoin. Elle a su créer une atmosphère pour que chacun d'entre nous puisse s'épanouir et réussir (8personnes). Je recommande fortement Charlie pour le cœur , le sérieux et l'implication que l'on peut ressentir dans son travail et la transmission de son savoir. Merci encore !

Frequently Asked Questions

I no longer give classes because I travel too much to be able to have a regular class schedule, although I do hold Yoga weekend retreats in Switzerland, speak at seminars or give corporate workshops. As part of my Karma Yoga I give free yoga and meditation classes in Switzerland usually by Lake Geneva, or free workshops sessions for local children. Please follow the Indiv Yoga Switzerland Facebook page  to receive updates on my local events and sign up to the Indiv Yoga newsletter 

I lead the Yoga Alliance 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training Course a few times a year, usually in a beautiful large villa in Portugal, and the Yoga Alliance RCYT (Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher) Training Course usually once a year in Cyprus and in Switzerland.  I also run the 30 hrs Foundations of Teaching Meditation and Mindfulness online course for yoga teachers as a YCEP (Yoga Alliance requires all yoga teachers to take 30 hours of continued education every 3 years).

Because you will get to deepen your knowledge and practice of yoga and be able to share the incredible benefits of yoga, pranayama and meditation with others. Courses are kept to a maximum of 10 students so that we can work on your objectives and personal yoga practice and you’re needs aren’t lost in a large group of students. You can bring you new skills and expertise to helping family members, friends, colleagues, kids and your local community be happier, healthier and more peaceful. What a gift! You will also meet amazing people in a supportive environment and train to become the best allrounded, professional and confident yoga teacher you can be. You will feel completely comfortable to give private yoga classes, group classes at yoga studios, yoga classes in persona and online yoga classes. You will learn about yoga philosophy, history, anatomy, physiology, sequencing, teaching methodology and more. It is not a yoga vacation but an intensive course of personal transformation. Work hard and play hard to become the best yoga instructor you can be! Make sure you read our amazing reviews and click below for more info.

I’ve trained in various styles of yoga and have always tailored the classes I give to the health and objectives of those attending. However I found that many of my clients suffered with some form of anxiety, and therefore slow or dynamic flow oriented classes were more suited to them. But I train my Indiv Yoga teachers to be able to apply the principles of Hatha, Vinyasa and Restorative Yoga to create sequences that suit the people they are teaching.

You need to have a minimum of 1 year of regular yoga classes to be able to do the course, but more important is the motivation to certify as the best yoga teacher you can be! I’ve trained students that had 1 year of yoga experience that ended up being better teachers than other students that have been practicing yoga for over 20 years!

It depends on the description, so it could be a yoga retreat, meditation retreat or a mix of yoga, breathing exercises and mindfulness retreat. Sometimes they are more specialized like a Buddhist Meditation Retreat or Flow Yoga Retreat. The long weekend retreats are like a mini yoga vacation, where you recharge your batteries, relax and restore, and all classes offered are optional in case you just feel like lying in bed! They are often in the Swiss Alpa with breathtaking alpine views and the level of practitioner will vary from complete beginner to long-term yoga enthusiast or teacher. The week long retreats are a yoga holiday with more tine for spa treatments and relaxing by the pool/beach. They are an opportunity to completely disconnect from daily life, have a mental, physical and technological detox, meet amazing people and indulge in healthy living and deep relaxation. Join me on one of my popular yoga retreats to see what all the reviews are talking about on the newer Indiv Yoga Switzerland Facebook page (different from the Indiv Yoga page which is mainly for teacher training courses).

This can vary but usually the 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Course is held in Portugal, and the RCYT Kids Yoga Teacher Training Course is in Switzerland, Cyprus and London. Sometimes yoga schools hire me to run courses at their studios in other countries, or I get hired to run retreats by hotels, organizations or private clients. Weekend retreats run by Indiv Yoga are held in Switzerland and week long retreats usually in Switzerland or Portugal, depending on my schedule.

Yes I often do private retreats and public events, including seminars and workshops. You can also book me to hold the 200 hr YTT and Kids Yoga TT at your yoga studio. Please use the Contact page to make an inquiry.
