I have been following the 200hrs Teacher Training in Portugal with Charlie and I only can say that this was the best choice ever. The course is hold in a wonderful house near Lagoa with an incredible swimming pool, a kitchen where it is good to eat and prepare meal and very nice bedrooms. This course is an intensive one and there is a lot of information to understand and assimilate: anatomy, yoga history and fundamentals, teaching principles … But Charlie organized the course in a way that you manage to learn that incredible amount of information in this short amount of time. In 1 week, you will start to learn how to teach and get to become more and more comfortable doing so and by the end of the course, if you put the right amount of effort into it, you will truly become the very first version of the teacher inside you, and not only the passionate yogi that you already are. Charlie is rigorous but fair, and will always be there for support and help. She is transmitting her passion and knowledge and help you grow into this new professional person you are becoming. This was truly a life changing experience and I am glad it has been with IndivYoga and Charlie.
