Harmony is a combination of imperfection and perfection – that’s how we know it’s real.
I have received extensive training in Yin and Restorative Yoga under the guidance of Norman Blair, Judith Lasater, Sarah Powers, and Bernie Clark, and have completed a number of other trainings in Kirtan, Teen Yoga, Childrens Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Pranayama and Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan). I am especially interested in tantra, and spend a lot of time studying the philosophy and practices with Christopher Hareesh Wallis.
As a musician and a student of Energy Medicine, Healing and Yoga, I have developed a deep understanding of how all of these practices (Healing, Yoga, and Music) are interwoven and compliment one another, as everything is ultimately about vibration they come together to combat dissonance felt in the body, heart & mind to transcend into harmony and bring back the balance of the heart-mind.

Acknowledgments of my learning
My journey is an ever evolving and ever changing landscape of practices and teachers
I have undertaken a lot of trainings since beginning on this path of healing myself which formally began in 2007.
I have been part of 1 day courses, immersions, 2/3/4/5 day trainings and some 1/2/3 year courses, diplomas & degrees
Everything comes from somewhere , we can think we are being original and I also recognise that things can come from even watching a YouTube video, that’s how mirror neurons work. I have been studying the Healing arts in different forms for a significant amount of time and as a result I have evolved, merged and developed some practices as part of me making sense of my life and the journey of life more generally.
As an eternal student with a love for learning, it is impossible to keep updating my website each time I complete a course/training. My desire is to continue to grow and develop as a human being, into my own true self and continuing to heal.
I would like to acknowledge teachers who have guided me and influenced me along the way in the way of honouring my path and theirs, this is by no means a complete list and I will endeavour to keep updating.

In short, in the same way that the physical practice of yoga so effectively benefits your body and mind, the larger science of yoga is similarly powerful in unlocking the vast potentials of your body, mind, and spirit.”
“Charlie is an exceptional teacher. A natural. Always so prepared and her classes informative and yet so spiritually engaging with it.
Have been to numerous gong and yin classes and they are such a treat. A slice of Paradise amongst the background of a noisy and fast-paced London city. So look forward to going on one of her retreats which sound like brilliant value for money.”
