“The more you reduce your needs and wants, the greater your happiness is. As babies, we came with a smiling, beautiful face. What did we do to lose that? That’s worth contemplating. Let’s become like children again. In the babies and children you see the real divinity. Who is a wise person? The one who really knows who he or she really is.

—Swami Satchidananda

What a life changing experience!!! It is so far the most amazing thing I have done for myself and I would recommend it to anyone. Excellent does not even qualify for the amount of devotion, care, patience, and understanding I received from the team at the ashram. The food was truly amazing, accommodation to suit everyones budget, and I will be forever grateful for the high quality teachings and training received. This course formed my foundation to a much happier life.

Reaching Teens Through Yoga with Charlotta Martinus (Chandrika)

Please share what you do in 10-15 words: I run a company called TeenYoga, which trains yoga teachers to work with teens in creative and inclusive ways, following the main principles of yoga.

Why do you do what you do? Because I have two teenage sons who I feel have been very misunderstood as have many other teens and I think yoga can help with issues that they are facing. I think many people are scared of teens and do not believe they can be helped. I believe yoga is a treasure to teach them the three Rs: relax, repair, and relate.

What are you currently fascinated by in your work? I have recently finished a two-year program in neuroscience and I specialized in the neuroscience of the brain, I am currently writing a book on this topic and including recent research in mindfulness for teens too.

How did you come to your path? Any aha moments or key teachers? When I was given a job in a school and the boys started hitting each other with yoga mats and the girls started texting during yoga, I knew there had to be a better method in working with them, the aha moment was the first time Yoga Nidra and my principles worked on them!

What book(s) are you currently reading? I am reading the Bhagavad Gita (always) and also just finished Dharma by Simon Haas.

Have you been to the Yoga Retreat before? I have not, though I look forward to it!

Charlotta Martinus (Chandrika) is a Sivananda-trained yoga teacher, deeply inspired by her travels to India. Based on her experience teaching teens in her hometown of Somerset, England, she created the Teen Yoga Teacher Training. She runs the yoga and retreat center, Universal Yoga, in Somerset.
