Plant-based yogi with a lust for travel and helping people thrive!
Having originally trained as an actor, Charlotte’s passion for nature, the environment, and sustainability, led her to swap the theatre for the lecture hall in order to study Environmental Governance in the Netherlands. She followed this with a PhD in Political Philosophy & Ethics at the University of Leicester, in England. It was during the PhD that yoga and meditation came back into Charlotte’s life again, as a way of coping with the stress of studying, working, and trying to keep healthy, all at once. Around the same time she began to develop an interest in nutrition and alternative forms of health and wellness – looking at the individual as a whole – including meditation, exercise, and self-development.
“Yoga was my anchor during a difficult time in my life. I want to offer people that same sacred space when they come to my class. A place to be vulnerable, to let go, to sweat, and to have fun.”
Realising that her true calling lay in helping people achieve optimal health and vibrant living through yoga and other lifestyle changes, she finished the PhD and immediately undertook her first YTT in Ashtanga-Vinyasa yoga with All Yoga in Bali, in 2017. Her love of the Spanish language and her passion for travel eventually took her to Colombia, where she received her certification to teach yoga in Spanish from Flying Tree Yoga. As a naturally ‘yin’ person, and having always been intrigued by indigenous and non-Western approaches to healthcare (such as Traditional Chinese Medicine), Charlotte then trained in Yin Yoga and Chinese Meridians with Annie Au in Mexico in 2018.
Charlotte has taught yoga around the world, in Fiji, Nicaragua, the Blue Mountains (Australia), and Portugal. Having moved back to Scotland, Charlotte is now a certified Thai Yoga Massage Therapist, and trained in Rocket Yoga with the ‘Yoga with Carson’ Academy. She now teaches Rocket Yoga, Ashtanga-Vinyasa, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga, offers Thai Yoga massage in Glasgow, and is currently training to become a Health Coach with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
