After years of competitive sports and physical training, Charlie took his first yoga class in 1995, hoping to increase his flexibility and balance. What he found was both a passion and a practice, where he could create strength and experience physical and psychospiritual openness in a serene, non-competitive environment.
He began teaching in 2005, emphasizing (though not limited to) Ashtanga and Iyenger methods. His teaching style focuses on mindfulness and presence, attention to breath, alignment, and movement/flow, all leading to stillness.
As his many students will attest, Charlie has a natural talent to create a peaceful environment where ego release, mental calmness and emotional openness naturally lead to self-acceptance and growth.
Charlie is a 500 hour YogaWorks certified Teacher Trainer. He leads workshops and retreats in the US and abroad. When Charlie is not in the yoga studio, you’ll find him rock climbing, hiking, and mountain unicycling.
