What a journey… I did it 🧘‍♀️💪with wonderful supporting yogis and the beautiful teacher woman- CHARLIE. From the very begin it was absolutely well organized. Charlie gave us always the feeling of trust in ourselves and in that what she is doing. She was always there as a very very professional teacher but additionaly as a human which saw in everybody the very own light of yoga… so personal, so close… yes it was sometimes very intense and close to the own boarders… but the spirit and flow and energy and love I felt around was the key to final pass it. I really recommend it to everybody who has this intension to become a yoga teacher to send this healing and connective energy in the world. Thank you for who you are 🙏❤️🧘‍♀️💃

I did. the YTT in Portugal in November. What can I say? Just wonderful location, yummy food, lovely people and amazing moments. I was really looking forward that training and was so excited about it. Definitely don’t think about it, just do it! I promise no one will regret it. Charlie is the best teacher, huge input on knowledge and yes, it is challenging in the beginning, but after two weeks you just feel another way. It was an experience which I don’t want to miss, best gift I could give to myself and the journey just started being a yoga teacher. Thank you for everything Charlie, every second you took for us, every moment you made with us, all the knowledge you shared with us ♥️

Just completed this course and I absolutely recommend! I learned so much, it was really intensive and well organized. I was able to find my stride as a teacher in just two weeks thanks to Charlie's mentorship and support from the amazing group of women I was with. Everyday was filled with learning and practicing alongside my peers where we really bonded as a group. Thank to Charlie, we had a welcoming atmosphere, and an immersive experience of yoga unlike any other. Not to mention the beautiful spaces in the villa! I will always cherish the memories and friendships I made here and I'm so happy to have chosen this course with a supportive system of alumni behind me as a move forward with my journey in yoga.

I just came back from my 200h YTT with Charlie and I am very happy to have chosen Indiv Yoga as the next step in my journey. Charlie with all of her knowledge made the content so much easier for me to understand and learn, mixing yoga principles with science (which I very much needed). Very early on in the course we are invited to start teaching and build up our confidence... now I cannot wait to put things into practice and bring some yoga around! Everything is very carefully organised, Charlie took care of all our needs with dedication and love. Thank you Charlie and all the amazing women with whom I got to share this experience!🥰

I just completed my 200 hour teaching training with Charlie in Portugal! What an experience, from the amount that I learned in just 2 weeks, the connections I made with people I now call friends from all over the world, the detailed and helpful tools Charlie provided us to be prepared to become authentic yoga teachers. Charlie is a truly caring individual and makes every effort to ensure you are comfortable and confident! This is not the stereotypical yoga teacher training, it is so much more! I loved the intimate group of just 10 of us and Charlie, the beautiful accommodations (and a short walk to some scenic cliffs), and the opportunities we had to really teach and fine tune our first yoga class. I will always cherish this experience and highly recommed! Thank you Charlie! 💗

I highly recommend!! I am so happy I chose this course for my training. The experience was incredible. Charlie is so thoughtful, caring, funny, and professional... I also met great people I can now call my friends. - A true honest support system helps on a yoga tourney and makes it more fun 🙂 The course is structured well, so trust in the process! (And believe in yourself). Charlie prepared us to go and teach - with knowledge and the confidence. I am even more excited to go and teach!

A really beautiful yoga teacher training course. I can’t believe how much I have learnt in two weeks. I went in thinking I would never feel ready to teach but now after two weeks I feel comfortable and ready to teach. Charlie created a lovely atmosphere and the schedule, whilst busy really worked to build my confidence and ensure I was ready to teach at the end. Thank you to Charlie and the beautiful group of yogis for making this an unforgettable experience.

I just attended a long weekend retreat in Schwarzsee with Charlie and enjoyed every single moment of it, the beautiful surroundings, the structure of the course which was for me a perfect blend between yoga classes and meditation, and delicious food. Charlie is a fantastic teacher, and her voice is also very soothing. She shared some beautiful poems and quotes during the retreat and we were also given a lovely box with yoga philosophy cards, with 108 inspirational quotes. I can only recommend Charlie as a yoga instructor and look forward to attending other retreats in the future.

Charlie is the absolute best teacher I have ever come across. I feel so grateful to have been able to attend her 200 YTT course. It was the most rewarding, tough, humbling, inspiring experience I've had to date! Charlie truly cares about her student's succeeding and this is what makes her such a great teacher. The Indiv Yoga coursework is incredible. You learn so much more than what you're signing up for! This is the most positive experience I have ever had with any yoga teacher and I am so blessed for the opportunity. Charlie strips away all of the things that have gotten in the way of what yoga truly is and she is a true leader and pioneer for preparing great yoga teachers to come. The location of the course is absolutely stunning. Sonia and Irina prepare the most delicious meals and are so sweet as they greet you with daily smiles! My fellow classmates and teacher are now friends for life. I couldn't have asked for a more amazing experience. 5+ Stars!!!
