Celebrating summer with a morning yoga class at The Cracking Crab, we thought you would like to meet Charlie!

 

How did you get into yoga?

 

I started yoga purely for flexibility but soon realised how much it does for your mind. After only a year of practicing myself, I headed to India for four months where I completed my 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training course so I could teach people using my favourite styles of yoga. 

 

What can people expect from your classes at CC?

 

My classes are a combination of many styles of yoga. We mix it up each week. I incorporate hatha, ashtanga, vinyasa and yin yoga into my classes while experimenting with fun partner yoga, inversions and arm balances. 

 

When will you be doing classes?

 

Classes started on 1st August at 7am-8.30am and are on Tuesdays for five weeks over the summer! 

 

How can people benefit from yoga?

 

Yoga is fun, a release from the rest of the world and a time to connect with yourself. Yoga will reduce stress, not only in your muscles but also in your mind. Taking time to stretch relax and have fun is the best TCL.

 

Are the classes suitable for beginners?

 

For sure. I give different options for different levels so everyone can come along.

 

What do people need to bring?

 

If you have a mat, bring it along. I do have some for people to borrow. Other than that, bring some water and wear comfortable clothes.

 

What's your favourite thing about the Cracking Crab?

 

Growing up in Polzeath I have always been obsessed with seafood. What’s better than eating crab out the shell with the perfect view of my favourite beach?
