We are incredibly excited to be collaborating with Charlie Morgan for our &SISTER seasonal retreats calendar at Poundon House.
Charlie Morgan, an exceptional and sought-after yoga teacher will be leading two of our ‘Autumn Light’ and our ‘Winter Glow’ yoga retreats.
Winter at Poundon House is a season of light & warmth, of being outside in the cold, coming into the home and hearth, and is the ultimate opportunity to create ‘hygge’. As such, its one of our favourite seasons at Poundon House, where a brisk walk in the sleepy countryside is followed by a turn in front of the fire or AGA. Roasting chestnuts in the fire, warm drinks, it is a season to celebrate light and warmth, friends and family. There will be plenty of time to stretch and open in the shala with Charlie, cosy down in front of the open fire and build up your internal energy for the rest of Winter whilst we wait for nature to awake with Spring.
It is a beautiful time of year at Poundon House. Retreating with us is a unique experience and one that will stay in your favourite memories forever.
More about Charlie
To spread the love & true benefits of yoga, as a lifestyle, as far and as wild as I possibly can. Making people smile and laugh along the way, opening their minds and hearts, inspiring and empowering them to swallow their fears and fulfil their dreams. I believe that everyone should, and can, live a life they love
Charlie’s yoga training
I have been practicing yoga on and off for 15 years, coming to it initially from a workout perspective. Following a life-changing trip to the Himalayan Yoga Institute in 2011, I decided to leave my job as an Assistant Buyer for The Disney Store and deepen my knowledge of yoga. In 2012, I became a certified teacher in Bali with WLYA – The Wise Living Yoga Academy (affiliated to The Yoga Institute of Santacruz, Mumbai, India – the world’s oldest organized yoga institution).
I cater the type of yoga I teach to the needs of each individual. However, my public classes involve an innovative and forever changing style of dynamic vinyasa flow. Although extremely fast-paced at times, I am a perfectionist when it comes to correct body alignment, the synchronisation of movement and breath and the importance of a sumptuous, meditative relaxation. My classes are down-to-earth, fun, creative and challenging, but at the same time accessible, maintaining the philosophy that ‘yoga is for all’.

‘Stay, season of calm love and soulful snows!
There is a subtle sweetness in the sun,
The ripples on the stream’s breast gaily run,
The wind more boisterously by me blows,
And each succeeding day now longer grows.
The birds a gladder music have begun,
The squirrel, full of mischief and of fun,
From maples’ topmost branch the brown twig throws.
I read these pregnant signs, know what they mean:
I know that thou art making ready to go.
Oh stay! I fled a land where fields are green
Always, and palms wave gently to and fro,
And winds are balmy, blue brooks ever sheen,
To ease my heart of its impassioned woe. ‘
To Winter, Claude McKay
