I just attended the Yoga & Buddhist Meditation Retreat in Schwarzee (Switzerland). What an amazing experience! I was hoping for a few days to disconnect and recharge, but I got so much more out of it. Charlie is an amazing teacher and guide. She takes you through the practices of yoga, mindfulness, meditation and buddhist teachings in a way that is educational, serene and with a bit of cheeky humour. The facilities are amazing, awesome location. Such interesting people in our group. It was the perfect balance of learning, recharging, relaxing, socialising, solo-time. Ready to sign up for the next one. Thank you Charlie ????

I have recently completed Charlie's 200hr RYT training course in a beautiful homely villa in Portugal. I initially signed up for the course with the sole aim of learning more to benefit my own practice and honestly never really planned on teaching. However, the learning and growing I experienced in our magical bubble over the two weeks, has sparked a new found confidence and desire to share and teach. This course is jam packed with learnings, you will be tired, BUT you will be so excited waking up every morning wondering what you will learn that day! This course was an experience of a lifetime thanks to Charlie and the incredible ladies I was lucky enough to share it with. If you're considering this course, do it!!

I attended Charlie’s retreat at Schwarzsee and I am very happy I did. It was very well organized, with sessions of meditation, yoga (all levels), walks in nature and delicious vegetarian meals. All of this while enjoying great conversations with Charlie and the other participants. I would definitely recommend this retreat and Charlie as a great yoga/ meditation teacher. It was such a lovely weekend. I am very grateful for this experience.

I participated in Charlie’s yoga retreat at the Schwarzsee and had a wonderful time. The retreat was very well organized with a nice mix of mediation, yoga, relaxation, activities, and social time. The yoga sessions were accommodating and inclusive for all levels. As a beginner to meditation, I felt well supported to learn, explore, and apply the practices that Charlie shared. The retreat was a super opportunity to unplug from the day-to-day.

Charlie has managed to turn a sceptic like me into a devoted yogi after three and a half days full of yoga and meditation. Small and intimate group, a teacher that sees you and shares her wisdom in a funny and accessible way. Wonderful surroundings and great company. Highly recommended for anyone who needs a recharge of body and the mind.

I had a wonderful time at Charlie’s YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) in Portugal! I can not think of a better teacher to have taught me and a more joyful experience she created for us. The location, accommodation, teachings, practices but especially Charlie was truly wonderful! I can highly recommend to anyone looking to learn more about yoga and becoming a teacher themselves to do it with Charlie :-)

I participated in the Meditation and Yoga Weekend Retreat with Charlie. She organized a wonderful weekend with very nice people on this retreat in a beautiful setting at Schwarzsee. The yoga classes to move our bodies, the calming meditation and breathwork sessions, and also the mindfulness walk around the lake to the waterfall were very well composed with a nice balance for the whole weekend. The food was very tasty and nourishing with carefully taking into consideration all the allergies of the participants. I highly recommend the Indiv Yoga retreats to anyone - either advanced Yogi or a beginner - because Charlie is a wonderful and experienced teacher who looks out for all her students with great care.

I am so fortunate to have joint Charlie’s IndivYoga retreat in Jun’21 and be my first yoga retreat to attend. Thanks to Charlie’s high standards, exemplary knowledge and experience, immense passion and well-being qualities, I had an amazing eye opening, energetic and mindful yogic experience during the three days together. The program is structured with balanced yoga practices, meditations and mindfulness learnings and flawlessly carried out in a top noch location and facilities. If I could I would give 10 out of 5 stars and without a doubt I will do it again.

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.

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 !

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).

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.
