“Charlie Merton or Nadapriya (as she’s called at the Sivananda Yoga Centre) is a truly loving and inspiring teacher. I was so shy and hesitant to try yoga as I felt that I was not strong, flexible or athletic enough. However, from my first class with Charlie, her caring and encouraging approach completely dispelled these initial fears of not being ‘fit enough’ for yoga. Instead, her positive guidance helped me to understand and accept where I am now in my yoga journey and I am inspired to continue my practice to grow and develop both physically and spiritually. I have completed two courses under Charlie’s guidance and every class was always filled with a most loving and warm atmosphere (I never thought that you could laugh in yoga class!). I am so grateful for having such a loving teacher introduce me to yoga. Charlie has ignited a new part of my personal journey and I am sure she will do so for many others. “

“Charlie has been teaching here in the Sivananda Yoga Centre in Putney since 2011. She is an excellent teacher, her instructions are clear and profound. She teaches beginners, intermediate and advanced students. She is able to demonstrate postures and correct students. There is a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere in her class. The students are very satisfied and recharged after the class. I have taken her classes and felt there is a good balance between challenge and relaxation.”

Swami Anantananda, Sivananda Centre, London

“Charlie is a real asset as a yoga teacher and most students who have experienced her class would testify to this. Her teaching style is fun, yet safe. She has an absolutely appropriate demeanour, making everyone feel comfortable and helping all the students to take the class at their own level. She, herself has a very strong practise and is a committed yogi, Basically, in Charlie, you have the real deal, the teacher with a solid background of her own experience and with a special and sensitive connection with her own students. Highly recommended!”

Charlotta Martinus, Director Universal Yoga/Teen Yoga




“Charlie helped me so much when I went through a very difficult period in my life due to suffering posttraumatic stress brought upon me through illness.  I was a prisoner in my own body, lost all my confidence and became very insecure ,  I suffered from Agoraphobia, Anxiety and Panic Attacks. She began to treat me with her special gift, she employed stones and crystals as healing tools as an alternative to medicine, her technique was fantastic giving me complete relaxation and self- belief, at each session I felt uplifted and energised I felt in control of my inner self, I found the sessions with Charlie so calming and  soothing. Over a period of time I was able to put into practice the method of relaxation she used and shared with me which I find so beneficial.”

Barbara Naamani, Cheshire

“I was not sure what to expect from crystal healing at first and to my surprise found sessions with Charlie very powerful. She certainly has a gift! Charlie radiates warmth and kind reassurance, making the sessions very comforting and relaxing. I received some valuable insights about the difficult relationship I was in at the time, allowing me to change negative patterns of behaviour. She helped me to clear unhelpful energies and to stay grounded, balanced and supported through a challenging time in my life, for which I am very grateful.”
