Charlotte Hay

Having originally trained as an actor, Charlotte’s passion for nature, the environment, and sustainability, led her to swap the theatre for the lecture hall in order to study Environmental Governance in the Netherlands. She followed this with a PhD in Political Philosophy & Animal Ethics at the University of Leicester, in England. It was during the PhD that yoga and meditation came back into Charlotte’s life again, as a way of coping with the stress of studying, working, and trying to keep healthy, all at once.

Realising that her true calling lay in helping people achieve optimal health and vibrant living through yoga and other lifestyle changes, she finished the PhD and immediately undertook her first YTT in Ashtanga-Vinyasa yoga with All Yoga in Bali, in 2017. Passionate to further her knowledge of alternative forms of healthcare, Charlotte then trained in Yin Yoga and Chinese Meridians (based on Traditional Chinese Medicine) with Annie Au in Mexico in 2018.

Charlotte has taught yoga around the world, in Fiji, Nicaragua, the Blue Mountains (Australia), and Portugal. Now based in Glasgow, she teaches Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga at Hope Studio.
