CHARLOTTE CHANDLER STONE
Founder & Director

Charlotte has been practicing yoga and meditation for over forty years, but it wasn’t love at first sight. When she first began to practice while a student at the University of Zürich in Switzerland, she saw yoga chiefly as a way to stretch … and she saw meditation as a colossal waste of time! In the ensuing years, life happened, and she came to a profound and lasting appreciation of these disciplines.

Over the years, Charlotte has looked again and again to her yoga and meditation practice to help her navigate life’s challenges, and it became her passion to share adaptive ways to practice yoga with students of all ages and abilities, health and fitness levels, in ways that incorporate mindfulness and foster self-inquiry, personal insight, and resiliency.

Often referred to as a “teacher’s teacher,” Charlotte has trained hundreds of yoga teachers in her Yoga Alliance-accredited trainings, and she continues to train and mentor teachers and yoga therapists nationally and internationally.

Vita Koch

Power Flow Yoga

I started practicing yoga because I wanted to get in shape. I wasn’t flexible or strong, and I didn’t have good balance so the practice was a struggle. Yoga lifted me to another playing field, physically, mentally and spiritually.
