Charlene Koel-Turner – Yoga Teacher

What is my why?

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

Because elevating others requires you to be whole, loved and balanced yourself, I Yoga.

How did you get started?

I was diagnosed with Lupus 23 years ago. Fifteen years ago my dad told me that I was so crippled up from the pain of Lupus that I “needed Yoga.” He was right! That started me on a whole trajectory of healing, calmness, self-awareness and self-discovery that has led me to now feeling the healthiest I have ever been. My best friend said it all, “Yoga really saved your life.”

How long teaching and in what styles?

I have taught Vinyasa Yoga for 9 years.

What pushes you to continue?

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are all in harmony.” – Mahatma Gandhi

I taped this quote to my bathroom mirror years ago. I see it every single day, and it reminds me, every day, what real mental health looks like.

Who was your biggest yogi influence and why?

Interestingly, the male yoga teachers in my life have made the most profound impact, probably because they challenge my stereotype. I owe lots of gratitude to YogaFit, the teacher training program that facilitated my earning the RYT-200.

Favorite indulgence?

I read about 50 books a year, usually in an Epsom salt hot bath with lovely essential oils.

Favorite Quote?

Because I work with children every day as a school psychologist for the school district, and love to encourage/praise all my special education students:

“Every child needs at least one adult who is irrationally crazy about him or her.” – Urie Bronfenbrenner
