I was looking for an instructor who was challenging, skilled, experienced, and authentic. I am also a yoga instructor and wanted someone I can learn from. I appreciate Charina’s knowledge and her willingness to answer the many questions asked of her. I return to her classes because I learn from her and find my practice has improved. I find myself tuned in to her endless knowledge of yoga even while she speaks to others! It’s evident that Charina applies the practice of yoga to her everyday life. THANKS CHARINA!!

Charina and her teaching style came into my life at just the right time. Her teaching style is traditional and precise, and is so harmoniously paired by her sweet and empathetic voice and energy. As her student, I feel like my body and spirit are both seen and heard. I know that she sees my ability, sees where I can grow and express myself further in my practice, and holds mutual expectation with me that I will continue to strive to keep progressing in each moment. In studying with Charina I have found a teacher who has helped me to harness my will power, refine my embodiment of postures, push my strength and stamina, and tune even deeper into the delight of a physical practice of communion between the divine energy inside of my body and that out into infinity.

Charina has been my yoga instructor at Illumina Redwood City over the past several years and she has been the best Yoga Instructor I have had. Charina is full of positive energy and with her expert knowledge in Ashtanga yoga and Sanskrit, she has been an instrumental guide in my Yoga practice. With Charina’s help, I have been able to reap the great physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits of Yoga. She continues to remind and teach me to be grateful and kind to myself while also encourages me to do better and improve with each session. It is because of her knowledge and teachings that I have been able to experience a more stress free environment at work and outside of work. I recommend her as a Yoga instructor and I look forward to my weekly weekday Yoga session with her.
