  • positive review  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.

  • positive review  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!🥰

    positive review  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! 💗

  • positive review  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!

    positive review  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.
