Char fell in love with health & fitness over 20 years ago. Growing up as a competitive athlete, who ran track, played volleyball, basketball and softball and trained in dance, martial arts and competitive gymnastics. Eventually falling in love with bodybuilding, which lead to her becoming a certified personal trainer in 1999. Her love of fitness and background in dance, was the perfect combination of skills that lead to her becoming a Group Fitness Instructor and an official Zumba Fitness Instructor in 2007, after being asked to attend a Zumba workshop and teach dance-fitness by the owners of the gym where she trained. She is licensed, trained and/or certified in several fitness formats and prehab & post rehab specialities. Including Pilates, Fascial Movement & Release, Corrective Exercise, and TRX Suspension Training, which she has been qualified to teach since 2011. Char's passion for dance & fitness could only be superseded by her love of yoga & meditation. As a twenty year practitioner of yoga and an advocate of holistic health, it felt like a natural next step to become a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga teacher (E-RYT & YACEP) and a Master Teacher & practitioner of Reiki and Meditation Teacher & Mindfulness Guide and a professional Sound Healer.
