More about Char's weekly classes & monthly workshops.

Char’s twenty plus year yoga practice began in Hatha yoga. However, fourteen years ago she discovered Hot Power Vinyasa at the urging of her acupuncturist following a high-speed collision and a lengthy recovery. She immediately fell in love with the smooth, dance-like movements, releasing and revitalizing effects offered by each sweaty class. 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.  Additionally, as someone who was born with a genetic autoimmune disease, having to endure a lifelong battle with a physically debilitating and degenerative musculoskeletal disorder with chronic and systemic pain and inflammation, it became very important for Char to offer additional integrative healing practices through Reiki, Aromatherapy, Bodywork, Meditation and Sound Healing. In addition, Accessible & Adaptive Yoga, Yoga for Chronic Pain, Trauma Sensitive YogaChair Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Gentle & Restorative Yoga for their rehabilitative and regenerative effects; especially for certain types of musculoskeletal diseases, injuries, chronic conditions, trauma recovery and mood disorders. She’s also trained to work with breast cancer survivors at all stages of detection and care. Including those with Lymphedema, Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer and those in need of palliative support.
