    positive review  Indiv yoga has helped with not only flexibility and body improvement but also body image, self-love, and mindfulness along with exam stress management. I would recommend Indiv Yoga for all and I now embrace all that I have learned through Indiv Yoga and use it on a daily basis. I would also recommend Indiv Yoga for people that are anxious or like me have a tendency of losing focus. Overall I highly recommend and have enjoyed my 5 years of being with Indiv yoga.

    positive review  The course planning is perfect, which is intensive as expected, with such a deep and joyful approach on Yoga (and life, by the way). The whole experience is overwhelmingly beautiful, life changing, and, although the (good) hard work, so peaceful Personally, I found it just the perfect end of a cycle/beggining another,(as the wheel of dharma turns) Thank you so much,Charlie 🙏

  • positive review  I really recommend Indiv Yoga 200 YTT for those who do not have long time for onsite trainings. The location is wonderful, spacey, and Charlie is a great teacher with her "individual" method. Focusing on people with all abilities is really close to me. We were teaching from the very beginning, having large focus on the practical knowledge - as the theory can partially be absolved also offsite. We had fantastic 2 weeks together, and became a real family, building up true friendships with people from all over the world. Was sometimes tough as of the intensity, but was a great great adventure, which I would do again and again. Thank You Charlie for sharing your knowledge, and for starting me "officially" on this wonderful life journey. xxx Monika

    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 ❤️

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 did the 200 hour teacher training course with Charlie in November 2018. It was a great experience. It is amazing how much you can learn in two weeks. Charlie is a wonderful, inspiring person and she knows so much about yoga and meditation. She is good in teaching, making things very clear. My fellow students were lovely as well. With seven different nationalities we were also learning a lot from each other. Almost living like little nuns, studying and hardly leaving the villa, fortunately we had a lot of fun together. We all supported each other in preparing for our practical and written exams. I can’t compare with other 200 hour courses, of course, but I wouldn’t have wanted to miss this one!

  • 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🧘‍♀️🤩🙏

    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!

    positive review  The Indiv Yoga 200 hour YTT was a challenging but rewarding experience! I would definitely recommend it. Charlie is passionate about the yoga practice, and it comes through in her teaching. You cover A LOT of information, but Charlie has structured the course to fully prepare you for the written and practical exams. I can honestly say I felt prepared to teach a full yoga class after the course ended. It's amazing how much you can learn in two weeks. I also gained a greater appreciation and connection to the yoga practice through this course, and I'm excited I will now be able to share it with others!

  • positive review  If you're looking for an amazing, supportive, thorough and well rounded YTT200, then this is the one for you! The training is intense, but Charlie has created the perfect space to learn and grow. Her love of yoga and life is infectious and spending time learning from her was an absolute pleasure 🙂 I not only learnt more about yoga, but I also learnt a lot about myself. Working and living side by side with other amazing people has given me life long friends. I can't wait to see what everyone does in the future and I'm looking forward to going out and sharing what I've learnt with the world!

    positive review  Obrigada!!! Thank you Charlie! I was on the last Teacher Training and had a blast! Algarve, in Portugal, is the perfect place for this retreat - the house was lovely, with a sunny pool and garden with ocean view. The training was intense and very complete, well-organized and full of positive energies. From early practices to evening meditations; to muscles, movements, asanas; until chackras, gunas and nadis; we learned so much! It was a dream come true, I am a very proud yoga teacher 🙂

    positive review  I thoroughly recommend the 200 hour teacher training course with the beautiful Charlie. Whilst it is very intense, packed into two weeks, it is very enjoyable, interesting and thorough. You learn so much about Yoga and yourself, as well as somehow magically transform into a teaching butterfly in a short space of time. Charlie is fun, friendly and what she doesn’t know about yoga isn’t worth knowing. It is wonderful to share a home with inspirational people and make friends for life. The villa is stunning and homely, and situated in a peaceful location. An experience like no other. If you are entertaining the idea of becoming a Yoga teacher then go for it!

  • 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 🙏😁

    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.

    positive review  Just got home after passing my RYT200 course with the amazing Charlie!! 🤩 What an emotional rollercoaster of a journey?! Wow! The support of the group was incredible and the way we all bonded so quickly was crazy.. I’ve made some wonderful new friends for life. The course was really full on, but not only have I learned so much about yoga, I’ve also learned a heck of a lot about my self! I’d recommend this course to anyone who is seriously keen to expand their knowledge on yoga, and anybody super keen to become a teacher themselves.. Full on but so worth it!! Thank you so much Charlie, and the rest of the fantastic girls from our group. ✨🧘‍♀️💕 Can’t wait to get teaching!! 😆
