“Young people experience a great deal of pressure, and consequently stress, to perform well in school due to the high expectations on them both academically and socially. Yoga is a great way to deal with this & the teen yoga programme has been extremely well received by students at Ralph Allen. The approach taken is just right and has inspired our students not just to try yoga, but to stick with it. I recommend the programme wholeheartedly.”

John Chantry Vice Principal, Ralph Allen School

Just a quick note to thank you for your wonderful training course, I think you have really inspired everyone to try to “be the change they want to see in the world”.

"I’ve really enjoyed the Teen Yoga training with Charlotta, she emanates such a warm and welcoming environment with her loving presence, where you feel totally accepted for who you are and where you are in your Yoga journey. Charlotta is very open, honest and insightful – sharing relevant stories and references from her own life experience that illuminate ideas and concepts succinctly. It has been a refreshing pleasure to learn alongside some-one who shares her passion with vitality and authenticity!"

Thank you Charlotta – you’re an inspiration which propels me forward in my own meandering yogic journey!

Charlotta, the course lead and founder of TeenYoga is truly an inspiration. The great depth of her knowledge, insight and experience is far surpassed by her powerfully generous, honest and humble heart. Charlotta shares her vision with such contagious love, light and joy, that it ignites a fervent empathy for our current generation of adolescents. Leaving each of us eager to play our part in bringing about the revolution of sharing the liberating and nurturing gift of yoga. The TeenYoga training was life changing and life affirming, words could never do justice to the acute wisdom of the course tutors and students, and the unique and mighty intimacy we found in each other.

Yesterday I went into a pupil referral unit with a small group of excluded year 11 kids. We did some breathing practice, sun salutation variations/tree/crow and a relaxation. The response - they LOVED it. One of them said it was 'heaven'.

I have to say it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my yoga career to date. These kids SOOOO need to build their self esteem, feel valued and they all said they had never felt so relaxed. I feel really grateful to Charlotta Chandrika Martinus, Caron Lindley Carole Davies & Kerry Walters for the learning experience to get me here. THANK YOU and may the teenyoga community continue to motivate & inspire.

Such a brilliant course. Hugely beneficial to every aspect of my life, personal and business. Thank you!

Charlotta is amazing. I feel genuinely humbled and touched by her.

I was amazed by the psychology and biology of teens. The whole course has made me more considerate of others and especially teens.

The course was pitched perfectly. Charlotta was extremely knowledgeable and engaging! She created a warm and informative learning environment. I really enjoyed meeting like minded people with so much to offer. The exemplar yoga practises were really useful to show hot to work around a theme for a targeted audience.

I've never taught yoga before but feel ready to work with individual and groups of students. The course has inspired me to do my teacher training as I'm desperate to gain even more knowledge.
