I just attended the Yoga & Buddhist Meditation Retreat in Schwarzee (Switzerland). What an amazing experience! I was hoping for a few days to disconnect and recharge, but I got so much more out of it. Charlie is an amazing teacher and guide. She takes you through the practices of yoga, mindfulness, meditation and buddhist teachings in a way that is educational, serene and with a bit of cheeky humour. The facilities are amazing, awesome location. Such interesting people in our group. It was the perfect balance of learning, recharging, relaxing, socialising, solo-time. Ready to sign up for the next one. Thank you Charlie ????

I have recently completed Charlie's 200hr RYT training course in a beautiful homely villa in Portugal. I initially signed up for the course with the sole aim of learning more to benefit my own practice and honestly never really planned on teaching. However, the learning and growing I experienced in our magical bubble over the two weeks, has sparked a new found confidence and desire to share and teach. This course is jam packed with learnings, you will be tired, BUT you will be so excited waking up every morning wondering what you will learn that day! This course was an experience of a lifetime thanks to Charlie and the incredible ladies I was lucky enough to share it with. If you're considering this course, do it!!

I attended Charlie’s retreat at Schwarzsee and I am very happy I did. It was very well organized, with sessions of meditation, yoga (all levels), walks in nature and delicious vegetarian meals. All of this while enjoying great conversations with Charlie and the other participants. I would definitely recommend this retreat and Charlie as a great yoga/ meditation teacher. It was such a lovely weekend. I am very grateful for this experience.

I participated in Charlie’s yoga retreat at the Schwarzsee and had a wonderful time. The retreat was very well organized with a nice mix of mediation, yoga, relaxation, activities, and social time. The yoga sessions were accommodating and inclusive for all levels. As a beginner to meditation, I felt well supported to learn, explore, and apply the practices that Charlie shared. The retreat was a super opportunity to unplug from the day-to-day.

Charlie has managed to turn a sceptic like me into a devoted yogi after three and a half days full of yoga and meditation. Small and intimate group, a teacher that sees you and shares her wisdom in a funny and accessible way. Wonderful surroundings and great company. Highly recommended for anyone who needs a recharge of body and the mind.

I had a wonderful time at Charlie’s YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) in Portugal! I can not think of a better teacher to have taught me and a more joyful experience she created for us. The location, accommodation, teachings, practices but especially Charlie was truly wonderful! I can highly recommend to anyone looking to learn more about yoga and becoming a teacher themselves to do it with Charlie 🙂

I participated in the Meditation and Yoga Weekend Retreat with Charlie. She organized a wonderful weekend with very nice people on this retreat in a beautiful setting at Schwarzsee. The yoga classes to move our bodies, the calming meditation and breathwork sessions, and also the mindfulness walk around the lake to the waterfall were very well composed with a nice balance for the whole weekend. The food was very tasty and nourishing with carefully taking into consideration all the allergies of the participants. I highly recommend the Indiv Yoga retreats to anyone - either advanced Yogi or a beginner - because Charlie is a wonderful and experienced teacher who looks out for all her students with great care.

I am so fortunate to have joint Charlie’s IndivYoga retreat in Jun’21 and be my first yoga retreat to attend. Thanks to Charlie’s high standards, exemplary knowledge and experience, immense passion and well-being qualities, I had an amazing eye opening, energetic and mindful yogic experience during the three days together. The program is structured with balanced yoga practices, meditations and mindfulness learnings and flawlessly carried out in a top noch location and facilities. If I could I would give 10 out of 5 stars and without a doubt I will do it again.

What a brilliant learning experience and lovely yoga community to go back home with. Charlie is an incredibly knowledgable yoga teacher and has created a 2 week course focused on you becoming a competent yoga teacher, which I loved. We were teaching by day 3 and I left feeling confident to teach (and sequence) a 75 minute class. Due to the nature of the 2 weeks, so much information is packed into the course and a lot of time spent reading/studying as well as practicing. My only comment would be it would’ve been great to have more yoga lessons with Charlie herself as she has a wealth of knowledge, but due to a packed schedule and the focus being on our own teaching progression I’m not sure where we could’ve fitted this in on a daily basis! I have left with a much stronger personal practice as well as a deeper understanding of the history of yoga and mediation methods. I’d highly recommend this course for anyone looking to deep dive into yoga and hone their skills as a teacher in an immersive experience.

I recently completed the 200-hour yoga teacher training with Charlie, and it was a truly life-changing experience ! The course is pretty intense - but its comprehensive curriculum covered all aspects of yoga, from its rich history and philosophy to anatomy, class planning, and lots of opportunities and feedback to start practicing our teaching. The villa, with its beautiful garden and pool in Portugal, provided the perfect backdrop for this inspiring learning experience. Charlie truly goes above and beyond to ensure each student receives the utmost from the program. Her passion for yoga is palpable, and she generously shares her vast knowledge not only of the practice itself but also the intricacies of the yoga business. The personal growth I experienced - not only as a Yogi, but also off the mat - was beyond my expectations. If you're seeking a yoga teacher training that combines depth of knowledge, practical teaching opportunities, and a nurturing environment, look no further.

I did my 200h YTT certification with Charlie, it was absolutely wonderful ! The amount of knowledge and wisdom you get is incredible ! Charlie as a teacher is amazing, she is authentic and really passionate about teaching, and she is always here for us. As a person, she is one of the best people I’ve met, with a pure heart and good intention. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher for my YTT ! I highly highly recommend her if you want to deepen your knowledge of yoga, not only on the physical aspect but also on the philosophy, history, different types of yoga, meditation, this course what what you need !

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQs

Can the course be done online?
I’m afraid not as it requires you to have live experience teaching children in front of the lead trainer, and to be interacting with the other students on the course, in order to get the best training possible.
Most other kids yoga teacher training courses are not Yoga Alliance RCYT courses and tend to focus on a smaller age range.  The Yoga Alliance RCYT course is renowned internationally for having the highest standards of any course in the world, and as being the most comprehensive course there is.  You will not learn how to play yoga related games with children, but be taught how to apply the many techniques of yoga, meditation and pranayama to children of 2 – 16 years old, to enhance their cognitive, physical, linguistic, social and emotional development, specific to their age group. You will finish the course able to confidently give safe, appropriate, and beneficial classes to children, helping future generations be calmer, happier and healthier kids.
Charlie was one of the first Yoga Alliance qualified teachers to give this training course in Europe.  She has 15 years of experience teaching yoga to children, becoming well-known for specializing in Yoga for autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, and anxiety.  Her reviews and testimonials speak for themselves, and she is passionate about spreading the benefits of yoga, breathing, and meditation to children.
Yes on the last day!
Absolutely.  We get many non-yoga teachers attend the course. You will not receive the Yoga Alliance RCYT certificate for certified yoga teachers, but you will receive the Indiv Yoga Switzerland Kids Yoga Teacher certificate.  In some places you can still use this certificate of completion to give kids yoga classes, however it is normally used to complement a child related profession, like school teacher, sports teachers, paediatricians, kids dance teacher, physiotherapist or other types of therapists.
Yes there will be breaks, lunchbreaks and you will hav the evenings off. The timetable can be a bit flexible, so sometimes we start earlier or finish later on a couple of days, if it suits the group, so that we can enjoy the lake or a hike.
No but there are plenty of hotel and Airbnb options to choose from around Nyon, and surrounding areas.  Gland is 5 mins from Nyon train station and Geneva is 15 mins away by train where there are many accommodation options.  The studio is a 3 mins walk from Nyon station and the bus network is very good.
As a certified 200 hrs yoga teacher, you will receive the Yoga Alliance RCYT (Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher) certificate.  As a non-yoga teacher you will receive the Indiv Yoga Switzerland Kids Yoga Teacher certificate.
Before the course starts you need to read the short book ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ by Richard Bach, to write a short synopsis and how you think you can create a yoga class or yoga activity based on the book.  You also need to find 10 fun facts for kids!
Even if you finished your 200 hrs Yoga Teacher Training course, are are finishing it at the same time, you can attend our course.  You will only receive your RCYT certificate however once your Yoga Alliance course is finished.
Yes!  Charlie is always available to give you guidance and advice.  There is also a private Facebook page specifically for yoga teachers where herself and other teachers answer with their advice and experience, to any question you have.
