Bethan Lindsay

Charlotte pours her heart and soul into what she teaches, what she says and what she does and how she lives her life and it is an inspiration.

Rather than doing a rigid, unflexible 200-hr teacher training Charlotte breathes life and soul into the training. She draws on her years of deep knowledge, practice, trainings and understanding of us as humans to offer something fresh, eye-opening and inviting.

Charlotte encourages you to look past the normal, to ask questions, to stand tall, to speak your truth and own your body.

I learnt more about myself, yoga, philosophy, the world we live in today and spirituality in my training with Charlotte than I have in my 25 years of living on mother earth.

Charlotte holds so much energy and strength for us all, she opens the space up for us to take the big leap forward.

Without Charlotte and taking my yoga teacher training and receiving on-going mentoring I wouldn't have recognised my old behavioural patterns, healed deep trauma and quit a job that was mentally and spiritually draining.

My life has turned around since Charlotte helped open my mind, body, heart and soul.

I now wake up every day unbelievably grateful for the life I have chosen to lead.

Charlotte teaches from the heart, gives her all and then some and she encourages you to do the same. With Charlotte you always have some fighting your corner, pushing you on when you want to resist, speaking words of love and encouragement as she guides you on your journey.

Whether you do Yoga Nidra, Yoga Teacher Training, Mentoring or a One to One with Charlotte your life will be richer for it!
