Charlotte is originally from the United Kingdom and has lived in Hong Kong with her family for 13 years. She believes passionately that the practice of yoga is not just about physical well-being, but rather a much more holistic wellness approach. It’s about finding a sense of ease within the body.  She offers a truly collaborative approach that is not bound to any one system or method of yoga. Instead, Charlotte brings together a unique combination of postural yoga, somatics, breath-work and mindful movement. She is fascinated with neuroscience, fascia, embodiment, anatomy, breathing and development movement patterns in how this promotes optimal health for her clients.

Charlotte believes that a practice of mindful movement is integral to improving our awareness of our internal state and our ability to choose what to focus on. These tools range from simple and easy to do developmental movements to complex mobility tasks as a way to ‘wake up’ the brain without strain or injury. When incorporated into our lives, mindful movement can help us to build the the tools and resources for greater levels of resilience.
