Welcome to Surya Chandra Yoga

My name is Charlotte Couse and I am a teacher of yoga in the Bournemouth, Poole and Purbeck area of Dorset. I am fully insured and registered with Yoga Alliance (500 hours — advanced level). My teaching is based on the Sivananda style.

I first set out on my yoga journey over 20 years ago, when I attended a yoga class at university. Since then I’ve tried many different forms, including Iyengar at the Maida Vale Iyengar Centre and Astanga  with Mara Musso in London and Roberto Palagi in Florence, Italy. In 2004 I did the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course at Yoga Junction, London.
