  • 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  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 🙏

    thumb Fernando 'Topo' Pouseiro

    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 ♡

    thumb Alessia Bella Donna Nigro

    positive review  Such an amazing experience doing my Yoga Teacher Training in Portugal with Charlie! The course is very well structured - you learn so much and become so close to your fellow group of yogis. I did not expect to leave a course being so confident in teaching yoga - but thanks to Charlies help and knowledge, I feel ready to share my love of yoga 🙂 💛

    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!! 😆

  • 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.

    thumb Sophie Heinz

    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!

    thumb Sophie Heinz

    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!

    5 star review  Amazing Charlie !

    thumb Claudia Palm Maranhão

    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!
