More on Char's Yoga Journey:

Char’s twenty-five-plus-year yoga practice began in Hatha yoga.

As a result, she decided to train in alignment-based Power Vinyasa with a strong foundation in Ashtanga, Iyengar & Baptiste lineages and teaches fusion classes incorporating elements of these traditions in both neutral & heated rooms. Char was born with a genetic autoimmune disease, having endured a lifelong battle with a physically debilitating and degenerative musculoskeletal disorder with chronic and systemic pain and inflammation.
