Char began practicing yoga in 2003 at a local gym. It wasn’t until 2014, while suffering from severe stress and anxiety, that she began to deepen her practice. She credits Yoga for teaching her how to properly BREATHE, acceptance, patience, self-compassion and self-love. Amazed by the transformation in her life through Yoga, Char decided she wanted to share the light with others. That same year she enrolled in Awaken Yoga’s 300-hour teacher training program.
She received her 300-hour Hatha Yoga certificate in 2016. In 2019, she obtained her Reiki Master Certificate and a certificate in Thai Bodywork. As a teacher, Char is warm and friendly. She grounds students with an ongoing awareness of breath, while guiding them through the poses and offering many modifications. It is her deepest desire to help others develop their own mind and body awareness.
Her classes are gently spiritual in her approach. Char is currently studying to become a board-certified Health Coach. She has a wonderful husband, and an amazing daughter. Together they enjoy hiking and being outdoors.
