Charlton was first introduced to yoga nearly 30 years ago and has been practicing regularly for the past 12 years.
A former martial arts (Tae Kwon Do) student, marathon runner, and a triathlete, Charlton noticed over time the difference that the yoga postures and stretching made to his training and recovery. The benefits to his wellbeing have not been just physical, but also spiritual. He is learning the power of the breath, and the importance of relaxation, and meditation to balance a busy and hectic lifestyle.
Charlton gained his Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification at Yoga Spirit Studios in Adelaide in 2010, and is a member of Yoga Australia, and Yoga Teachers Institute of South Australia Inc.
He is continuing his yoga journey through teaching others, as well as attending further teacher training such as Donna Farhi's 21 day Advanced Teacher Training, level 1 Somatic Exercise Coach Training with Martha Peterson, Level 2 Certificate 500 Hours at the Byron Yoga Centre’s Puma Yoga with John Ogilvie, Hot Yoga Teacher training level 1 with Jimmy Barkan, and has his Pilates Teacher training certification.
