About

Hi my name is Charles,

 

I am a E-RYT® 500 yoga teacher and I have been practicing and actively teaching around the world different styles of yoga and meditation techniques.


My passion for health and fitness started years ago and led me to become a personal trainer. In the past years, I've practiced Jiu-Jitsu, swimming, body building and I have run several half marathons.


In 2010 in the search for something more meaningful and spiritual to help me overcome depression, I started practicing yoga.


In 2013 I took the decision of quitting my regular job and I became a personal trainer and then a yoga teacher.


Since then I’ve dedicated myself to my one and only true passion, yoga.


In 2014 I had the honour of doing my first 500hrs of training in Ashtanga, Rocket and Yin with "The Yoga People (TYP)”. This completely transformed my life.


After that I moved back to Italy for a while where I continued my Ashtanga training with a 3rd level Ashtanga teacher called Gabriele Severini.


To deepen my knowledge further I went several times to India where I got my 500hrs qualification in Hatha and yoga therapy at "Rishikesh Yog Peeth", practiced regularly Ashtanga in Mysore with Ajay Kumar at "Sthalam8" and attended “Vipassana” meditation.


I also have trained with Duncan Wong and David Kyle.


At the moment my regular teacher is Eileen Gauthier.


I now teach in London regular classes in Hatha, Ashtanga, Rocket, Vinyasa Flow, Mandala Flow, Yin, Pranayama and Meditation.


I am a qualified personal trainer, Thai and Ayurvedic yoga massage therapist and also an energy healer and a vibroacoustic therapist.


My teachings are about cultivating awareness of mind, body and breath, creating an environment where students can challenge themselves while having fun.

Namaste!
