Charlotte is a retired Professor of Public Health from the LSU School of Dentistry; since her retirement she has committed to a lifelong study and practice of yoga. “It is my passion to live my life with gusto and give that away from my heart to the hearts of the children I teach.”

“My love is in education. My dharma is to teach, but more importantly, I love to motivate my students to reach the desires of their heart. Watching them find their own belief, that their dreams are possible; while encouraging them to create their highest goals of happiness is a great source of joy.”

Teaching the child how to trust that knowing little self within, is my greatest gift as a teacher! The little yogis wait for satsang to share from their hearts to one another in a very safe place before class begins. The simple messages of life are what keep us happy. I provide an avenue while teaching yoga through singing and breathing, practicing poses, storytelling, games, designing art and creatively moving the body. It is amazing to see the capacity a child has to “rest into their own stillness” at the end of a class through a guided meditation with restorative poses. I see the little yogis transform as they find the definition of their very true self that is within.

The children bring yoga home into their families. Family yoga has been a lot of fun for the parents to learn from their children the “positive messages they want in their home”. The parents and whole family love yoga; and I love teaching it!!  When parents learn how to listen to the little wise yogi’s it makes them feel so important. Confidence and seeing the Light in their family members happens easily while practicing.
