Charlie’s work of yoga therapy for special needs came about unexpectedly many years ago when she was asked for help by an Ambassador regarding his son’s Autism. The benefits of her style of yoga therapy were quickly apparent and she ended up working with him up to 3 times a week for a further 4 years. Through word of mouth she quickly began taking on more kids with special needs with wonderful results. Having worked with ASD patients and other disorders during her psychology degree, helped develop her style of yoga therapy, as well as spending time learning from the prominent Sonia Sumar. The main principles of physical yoga (correct breath work, stretching, toning, posture, focus & relaxing) are the back bone of each session along with an emphasis on communication, self-awareness, confidence, connectedness and creativity.
From babies into adulthood, Charlie’s style of yoga therapy has helped with Autism Spectrum, PPD-NOS, ADHD, Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Dyspraxia, Eating Disorders & childhood anxiety.
