The Yoga Rhythm teacher training programme, run by Charli Sparks, left me fully prepared to teach, having expanded my understanding of both myself and the fullness of yoga more than I would have ever believed possible. Charli's classes are small, quality driven and focus entirely on developing you into a confident teacher. I would highly recommend this course, over and above other courses that I am familiar with from personal research and the testimonials of others. A truly rewarding experience, I went straight into teaching and feel confident and enriched. Thankyou Charli and Yoga Rhythm.

Charli Sparks

The 200hrs Yoga Rhythm Foundation Course has been running for over 14yrs. I created this course to help others find their own unique style of teaching rather than following a set format & structure to encourage freedom, creativity and intuition to their teaching after discovering there was a gap in the market with this unique ‘heart based’ training. My core essence to the training is to allow the individual to remain true to their essence in teaching yet provide them with a vast and diverse set of tools to choose from to help create their own way and lead their own light from their hearts, truth. We are unique beings and deserve to be celebrated for our own individual beauty. 

A sparkly soul in this world sharing her love and light to others. Charli has been blessed to have been given an abundance of energy in this life to share with everyone she meets, to uplift their soul and allow them to see how truly magnificent they really are in all their truth and glory.

Charli created the 200hrs Yoga Rhythm Foundation Course over 15yrs ago, recently collaborated with Very Yoga Reigate. Collaborating with Very Yoga Reigate couldn’t be more complimentary and so right, so much so we are running more training courses (200hrs, YACEP CPD and 300hrs) at the space and on residential. 

A mamma to 4 children, 2 dogs and devoted to her life partner Matt. Off the mat we aim to live a life full of heart, compassion, creativity, empathy with an ethical ethos in everything we do….whether its making a fire, getting messy in the kitchen, walking in the forest, to dancing our hearts out or singing karaoke with family and friends. We live a simple but full life in Forest Row, East Sussex where ‘The Anderida Community’ founded by Charli+Matt also resides  – a community space for health & wellbeing, making alternative health accessible to all. (

This Yoga Teacher Training programme with Charli and her team is, without a doubt one, of the best things I've done in my life. It has been incredibly unique, empowering and transformational in learning the art of teaching Yoga. Charli is an incredible person, teacher trainer and mentor. She radiates love and joy and is so very inspirational, warm and nurturing, and always leading from the heart. Charli and her team of faculty members are all extremely knowledgeable in their respective fields and as a team they bring a good balance of teaching styles, wisdom, insight and compassion to the programme. The content of this programme is fascinating, varied and thorough, and the small group sizes mean that students get personal attention in building their foundation to teach safely and confidently. It has been a true privilege to have had the opportunity to train with Charli and her team - my most heartfelt thank you for all that you have done for me.
