Aerial Yoga Teacher,
Elevate Flight Coordinator
Charley is a 200 hour certified yoga instructor as well as an Arizona native. She first stepped on a mat in 2012 as a way to add to her workout routine and see what her body could do. With yoga, there was no instant love connection as Charley could not sit still, quiet her mind, or even touch her toes! After taking a month hiatus and trying it again Charley soon came to love yoga and all the help it provided. After six or more months from when Charley started yoga she noticed herself becoming more mindful, an increasing body awareness, and better control over her mind, body, and breath.
Wanting to share the benefits yoga gave her with as many people as she possible in October 2013 she enrolled in 200 hour yoga teacher training at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA) in Tempe, AZ. Charley finished her training in April of 2014 and has been teaching ever since.
Along her 200 hour yoga teacher training Charley has her 50 hour AIReal™ Yoga training and is barre certified via Barre Above™. Plus, Charley has taken workshops in backbends, Ashtanga, inversions, and yin yoga. However, when she is not teaching or learning Charley enjoys keeping up with her personal practice, volunteering, and other hobbies like knitting and gardening.
