About Me

Known for his gentle guidance, radiant personality, and ability to adapt instruction to student’s needs; Charles has a loyal following. He has a wide range of experience with styles and students, and believes that Yoga is for everyone.

Introduced to Yoga at a corporate workshop in 1998, his passion was immediate. He immersed himself in study. The practice of Yoga provided him with a physical and spiritual healing that he knew he must share with others. In 2005 Charles earned his certification in Vinyasa from Wendy Pinto, owner of The Yoga and Healing Center in Scotch Plains, New Jersey. He has taken workshops with the very respected and revered late Thom Birch.

In addition to private clients Charles is a Yoga instructor at Club H Fitness in NewYork City. Weekly he can be found at the Park Slope Senior Citizen Center in Brooklyn, guiding twenty to thirty seniors through Basic Chair Yoga lessons. He even has a class of twelve sassy seniors there who practice Advanced Mat Yoga. He loves working with his “golden gals and guys,” most of whom never practiced Yoga prior. Charles has conducted Yoga retreats in Jamaica and St. Lucia.  He has also taught at New York Sports Clubs, The Yoga and Healing Center, Yin Yang Yoga, and instructed elementary school students at the Community Roots Charter School in Brooklyn. Charles has also lead workshops for physically challenged practitioners, and prenatal Yoga.
