Indiv Yoga Helps to Create Balance
Charlotte (Charlie) Stewart-Brown, founder of Indiv Yoga, was born in London in 1981 and was eventually recommended Yoga and Meditation at 14 years old, after struggling with anxiety and anxiety related disorders. In 2008 after a degree in Psychology & Sociology, and some grueling years in business, she finally decided to finish her RYT 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training and dedicate herself to teaching yoga full time.
With a difficult childhood in the pressure of London, Charlie started to find strength & calm through yogic breathing exercises, zen meditation & different styles of yoga. She has since trained with some of the most renowned yoga teachers around the world (David Swenson, Shiva Rea, Anne-Marie Newland, Sadhguru, Sadie Nardini, Leslie Kaminoff, Sonia Sumar) studying Hatha, Sivanada, Ashtanga, Children and Family Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Yoga for Special Needs and Inner Engineering. She has become well known for her successful work in Yoga for anxiety, and Yoga for Autistic Spectrum Disorder and ADHD.
With more than 1300 training hours and 22,500 teaching hours, Charlie holds the highest yoga qualifications as an ERYT500 (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher 500hrs), RCYT (Registered Children´s Yoga Teacher), RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) and YCEP (Yoga Continued Education Provider) with the Yoga Alliance. She holds retreats, seminars and teacher training courses internationally and is the voice of the ‘Yoga & Mindfulness Program’ on British Airways long-haul flights. She gives seminars at international corporations and gave the presentation on the importance of implementing mindfulness in schools at the SGIS (Swiss Group of International Schools) Annual Conference.
She is the lead trainer on the Indiv Yoga RYT200 & RCYT Kids Yoga Teacher Training Courses, having certified over 400 students worldwide. She holds popular yoga retreats in beautiful venues in Switzerland and Portugal, which teach yoga and mindfulness techniques that can be easily applied in everyday life. Now living in Switzerland with her husband, she developed Indiv Yoga™ as a therapeutic approach to yoga and meditation, that every individual can benefit from. She is dedicated to the continued study of yoga, science, philosophy and meditation, to share her knowledge and experience with as many people as she can, and keep training more Indiv Yoga teachers around the world.
I’ve lived it and worked hard at it, so now let me share it with you.
About Indiv Yoga
Yoga for Every Individual
Indiv Yoga™ is a blend of Vinyasa, Hatha and Restorative yoga with the belief that the benefits of yoga, meditation and mindfulness, can be applied to every kind of individual. Indiv Yoga™ classes are structured and tailored to the individual’s strengths, weaknesses and objectives. It’s primary focus is diminishing the anxieties of modern day life in adults and children, by achieving physical and mental balance, to attain inner calm and strength.
Indiv Yoga™ classes and courses do not have a rigid structure or set sequence. The poses, breathing exercises and meditations are dependent on those attending, and evolve with the objective of physical and mental balance.
Charlie has trained in yoga for all ages and abilities, including special needs, elderly, pre/post natal, and predominately in anxiety disorders in adults and children. Her popular RYT200 hours Yoga Teacher Training Course is one of the most internationally all-rounded yoga programs, producing teachers worldwide with a wide skill set for applying yoga to every type of individual.
Yoga has been helping me for over 26 years. It’s given me strength, calm and control in my battle with anxiety. Its benefit is the ability to achieve mental and physical balance for a healthier and happier life. It’s a resource that everyone can benefit from and I’m here to help you do that!
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.
Dear Charlie, thank you so much for the amazing time in Portugal! I really enjoyed the time and I still can‘t believe that we are yoga teachers now 🥰 Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experiences with us. I cannot wait to teach my own yoga class very soon. I will never forget this time and I am grateful for all the amazing people I call my friends now! 🧘🏼♀️♥️ Namasté
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.
