Teacher Trainings

Charlie is a 500 hour YogaWorks certified Teacher Trainer.  He taught at the Montana, Main Street, Brentwood and Westwood studios for 15+ years.  He leads workshops and retreats in the US and abroad.

“Taking the Teacher Training Course at Yogaworks was one of the best experiences of my life and part of the reason is due to our amazing teacher Charlie Samos. Charlie’s knowledge and experience helped give me a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the human body and how it correlates to the yoga movements and asana. He is patient, understanding and always willing to coach students through any challenges. His gentle nature, compassion and open heart full of love is a perfect example of incorporating the yoga philosophies and sutra’s into one’s life. Any student should consider them blessed to have Charlie as their teacher trainer.”

~Ana Hernandez, YogaWorks Teacher

“Upon taking my first teacher training at YogaWorks I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew it was an extensive, advanced program I was signing up for. Not only was Charlie extremely knowledgeable of the subject matter, he went above and beyond at making sure everyone was grasping not only the in depth anatomical material, but the yoga Sutras and philosophy. Charlie has been teaching yoga for decades, and it shows not only through his intellect but just his mere presence makes one feel like they are in a space with someone who can hold a room in nothing but peace and love. I highly recommend Charlie as a teacher trainer. He molded my career from the beginning and wouldn’t be where I am today without him.”
