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 taught at the Montana, Main Street, Brentwood and Westwood studios for 15+ years. 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.
