  • 4 star review  The most intense two weeks of my life. Very challenging yet amazing yoga experience of my life so far. I have conquered some of my fears and shared this path with the most wonderful group of yogi sisters I could have ever asked for. Thank you Charlie ♡

    positive review  I have just returned after completing and passing my RYT200 course with Charlie in Portugal and can't recommend it enough. It was a super intense 2 weeks but so worth all the effort. Charlie was amazing and put her heart and soul into the course and as she lead us through this amazing/exhausting journey. The location was beautiful and the villa felt like our home. I met the most amazing group of people on this course and have made friends for life. The support the group gave eachother was wonderful #yogafamily. Looking forward to teaching and sharing what I have learnt on this course.

    5 star review  I have had a fabulous 2 weeks on the YTT course in March 2018 Charlie made us all feel welcome and was such a warm and friendly teacher. I have gained more knowledge and experience to share with my students and am taking home some fond memories and great friendships made along the way �

    positive review  I have just finished my YTT course with Charlie and I highly recommend it. The course is complete and very pragmatic. It was in Portugal, the house is beautiful and the people are lovely. The group was great, from all over Europe and America, we have supported each other to learn all the yoga philosophy and anatomy theory which was fun and much needed as there is a lot to learn! I liked that we have spent a lot of time teaching from the beginning, it helped me to gain confidence as a yoga teacher. Thank you Charlie for this life changing experience!

  • 5 star review  I have taken a few yoga and meditation courses here - wish I could find more time in my schedule! My children have also benefitted not ony from Charlie's teachings, fully adapted to their age and level, but also from the yoga teachers she trains to work with children. My kids found the courses to be interesting and fun, and had lots to share with me about breathing, poses, visualisation, and feeling great. Charile works with all ages, and is a real asset to our community. Until schools value developing whole people, we must provide experiences for our children to develop more than just classic academic skills. Yoga and meditation with Charlie and her team at Indiv Yoga is not just for stress relief, it is part of building a better world. <3 Namaste Charlie <3

    positive review  I would highly recommend Indiv Yoga and Charlie. A truly life changing experience and an incredible amount of knowledge gained on the 2 week intensive TT. Charlie has so much wisdom and a tangible passion for Yoga, she inspires budding teachers by being a glowing example of a yogi.

  • positive review  I have just returned from Indiv Yoga's 200 hour teacher training in Portugal and highly recommend it. I particularly appreciated Charlie's holistic approach to yoga (rather than a one size/style fits all approach). I loved expanding my knowledge about the history and philosophy of yoga, trying different meditation techniques, and of course developing my personal practise. There was a lot to learn but we had a lovely environment to do it in, the villa and garden are gorgeous! We were also blessed by having the most fabulous group of people to share all this with. Thank you Charlie. Namaste 🙏😁

    5 star review  I just finished the 200 HR YTT with Charlie and I am so grateful and inspired. I wanted to deepen my understanding and practice of yoga and I wanted to begin sharing it with others as a teacher. I was looking for an experience that embodied the true essence and depth of yoga and would also be an integral International Yoga Alliance Teacher Training. Indiv Yoga was as all of this and SO MUCH MORE than I could have imagined.

    positive review  I just finished my Yoga Teacher Training with Charlie in Portugal and it was the best possible way to start the new year. I am so grateful for the last weeks and all the information we could soak up in such a short time. Charlie is very organised so even the time is short there are a lot of possibilities to get deeper knowledge about personal experiences, time to be silly and enjoying the ocean and the cliffs nearby the villa! I can highly recommend Indiv Yoga and Charlie ❤️

The course is very well structured - you learn so much and become so close to your fellow group of yogis.

    positive review  Just finished my YTT with Charlie in Portugal and I can highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking about completing a YTT, joining one of her other courses and retreats or wants to take private classes with her. Charlie knows exactly how to bring the best out of you, being highly supportive and challenging at the same time. Her expertise, knowledge, style of teaching as well as her way of life is impressive and inspiring for everyone. I'm incredibly grateful that I found her and her school - she helped me to make my heart blossom even more!

    positive review  I can really recommend The Indiv Yoga 200 hour YTT in Portugal from the heart. Even though we spent most of those 2 weeks in this beautiful villa we have discovered completely new horizons. The training is intensiv and I have never expected to learn so much about yoga and especially about myself in only two weeks, but thanks to lovely Charlie we made it! She is an excellent yoga teacher with a huge experience and a beautiful soul! 🌟 its a life changing experience and I never want to miss a thing🧘‍♀️🤩🙏
