Still processing and assimilating the wonderful experience with you and the group. Each day brings greater clarity and meaning, I can’t thank you enough.

Margaret Davies School Teacher 2014

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 and 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

The introduction of yoga to the teens of the UK is the best introduction to the whole journey of life I have seen in a long time. A wonderful inspiration.

Vicky, Yoga Teacher, London

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.

Naomi, Mental Health Worker, 2014

I am very excited about teaching yoga at the school where I am a classroom teacher. I can see how enormously beneficial yoga is going to be for the young people in my school, especially in the run up to exams when the pressure is enormous.

Emma, Secondary Teacher, Berkhamsted

I can not recommend this course highly enough. It will give you all the tools you need to go out and teach yoga to teens. What’s so lovely is you will feel like you’ve become part of an incredibly supportive community. I met so many inspiring people.

Indira, London

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 and Kerry Walters for the learning experience to get me here. THANK YOU and may the TeenYoga community continue to motivate and inspire.

Alison Jennings, Wales

I’m so grateful to have found TeenYoga. I had been thinking of education, young people and yoga and this course made it all come together wonderfully. I also learned a lot about myself and completed this course with renewed energy. Thank you Charlotta, you are an amazing and inspiring teacher.
