Joined Ompractice August 2018
Charina began her yoga journey in 2004 with a desire to find peace and equanimity in her fast paced life as a fashion designer, business owner and mother. From her very first practice on the mat, Charina found how yoga provided an unparalleled reprieve from stress and reminded her of the opportunity for calm and reflection during difficult times. Since 2004 Charina feels fortunate to have had the opportunity to study and practice various traditions from Ashtanga, Iyengar, Yin and Restorative yoga.
Charina began her teaching journey in 2011. She was inspired to share the benefits of the practice through her work as a social worker at a skilled nursing facility where Charina found how much movement and breathing benefitted patients during post surgery rehabilitation. Since then, Charina has gone on to teach many populations including young children, teens, elder adults, athletes, engineers and expecting and post partum moms.
Charina is passionate in empowering students to tap into their own inner well of strength. She is thrilled to join Ompractice to continue her service in helping students receive the healing benefits of yoga and to find freedom and ease both on and off the mat.
When Charina is not on the mat practicing or teaching, you can find her spending quality time with her family, soaking in the sun with a book in hand, experimenting with recipes in the kitchen or off on a travel adventure. Read more about Charina online at www.yogalyfe.com
