Yoga, a complete health system, stimulates the body to function efficiently; relieving stress, increasing flexibility; promoting stability, inner strength and serenity. With regular practice you will notice that not only your body changes, but you also become aware of a subtle change in your approach to life - for,  through persistently toning and  relaxing the body and stilling the mind, you begin to glimpse a state of inner peace which is your true nature.

"Thank you, Charo. You are such an inspiration. It is a pleasure and gift to be in your yoga class." ~ Noreen

"Now that I know yoga it will help me go through 6th Grade. You have helped me so much, thank you!" ~ E.S

"Thank you for the time you devoted to us through the yoga program. Without you our program would not exist. The children know that they can count on you to be there to help with strengthening their bodies, but more important to  care about and for them. You have made a significant difference in their lives." ~ Care Center for Christ

"For the past seven years I have taken a yoga class for Seniors with Charo. I look forward to my Thursday class. Charo gently guides us through the postures,  paying special attention to each student to make sure we are safe and correct in  our postures. Her gentle, caring nature brings an aura of calm to the class.  Thank you Charo for all you do to build my strength and flexibility and bring  inner peace to me." ~ Barbara L

"I have taken yoga classes with Charo for several years. She is unremittingly friendly, gentle and inspiring. I look forward to class and always leave glad that I went. Charo makes sure that our postures are safe and correct with gentle guidance, not by pushing you into place like some instructors. My knees and shoulders are grateful. She also offers alternatives for various levels of flexibility."  ~ Kay W.

"I don't think yoga would be the same with anyone else but Charo. She tries hard to take into consideration all of her student's physical ailments and implement movements that will help (or avoid movements that will hinder) their recovery. She genuinely cares about the lives of each of her students and is an all around wonderful teacher." ~ Caroline

"Thank you for teaching me yoga. You helped me learn a new way to relax. I got angry the other day and if you didn't teach me yoga I would have been stressed. Sincerely Ana"
