After a long term and fulfilling career in Sales and Catering in the hotel business; Charise resigned from her career in hopes of becoming a stay-at-home mom. In the interim, Charise began taking yoga classes at a nearby studio. She became intrigued with the practice and discovered a love and challenge and serenity in yoga that she knew wanted more of! With the encouragement and support of her husband Michael, she signed up for the American Power Yoga’s teacher training. She received her teaching certification in 2008 and has been teaching yoga ever since. Charise is an avid student of yoga and health and enjoys learning and gaining knowledge by attending many classes, workshops and continuing education trainings, where, in turn, she shares and passes on the information and ideas she has learned to her students. Charise has “a place in her heart” for Holy Yoga (where she brings a message of faith, hope and a reminder of Jesus’s nearness and unfailing love within a yoga practice). She also has a new-found love in Chair Yoga! Mainly because this practice can be the gift of movement, meditation and community to a population that may not show up in a typical yoga studio. AND it’s more challenging than one might think! Outside of the studio, Charise enjoys being in nature, traveling, art and crafting her own greeting cards and painting tiny portraits of pets, birds and flowers. You can find her hanging out with her hubby and two kids in Lakewood.
