Charlton was first introduced to yoga nearly 30 years ago and has been practicing regularly for the past 12 years.
A former martial arts (Tae Kwon Do) student, marathon runner, and a triathlete, Charlton noticed over time the difference that the yoga postures and stretching made to his training and recovery. The benefits to his wellbeing have not been just physical, but also spiritual. He is learning the power of the breath, and the importance of relaxation, and meditation to balance a busy and hectic lifestyle.
Charlton gained his Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification at Yoga Spirit Studios in Adelaide in 2010, and is a member of Yoga Australia, and Yoga Teachers Institute of South Australia Inc.
He is continuing his yoga journey through teaching others, as well as attending further teacher training such as Donna Farhi’s 21 day Advanced Teacher Training, level 1 Somatic Exercise Coach Training with Martha Peterson, Level 2 Certificate 500 Hours at the Byron Yoga Centre’s Puma Yoga with John Ogilvie, Hot Yoga Teacher training level 1 with Jimmy Barkan, Pilates Teacher training certification, and Broga© Yoga Teacher certification.
I began this amazing journey 30 years ago and it has made such an impact in my life I simply had to bring this experience to others. I incorporate my love of life, and passion for Yoga, into all my classes.
I challenge my students to explore themselves with an open heart, open mind and most of all with compassion.
What I enjoy the most about teaching is how much I learn through my students, and for this I am very grateful.
“I look forward to crossing your path on this wonderful journey we call life.”
Alex has been practising yoga for the past 6 years on and off, but it became much more regular after she had her son 3 years ago, because she wanted to show him how to live a healthy lifestyle.
She grew up trying many different sports including cycling and triathlon, but found she could never stick with them. When she first tried yoga she could easily see the many benefits that it can have on the mind, and body.
In the past Alex has suffered from anxiety, and depression, and she found Yoga was a great way to learn to cope, and deal with her anxieties. She believes in allowing all people to progress at their own pace, and level, whilst also helping them progress to their maximum potential.
Alex is very passionate about yoga, and the potential it has to help people from every walk of life.
I have been a student of yoga for almost a decade and never looked back.
Yoga is more than a practice, for me it’s a way of life. It’s taught me how to manage the stresses of the daily grind as well as appreciate, and accept, who I am.
I’m honoured to be a part of the YogaLane team, and I look forward to meeting you.
See you on the mat!
