Charles Askenaizer is a 200 hour CYT. His classes borrow heavily from the teachings of Gabriel Halpern, Erin Cowan, Lani Granum, Carol Schickel, and Rich Logan. In his class you will find a mix of gentle flow, therapeutic somatics, restorative postures, poetry, chanting, meditation, or a more vigorous style depending on the students. He is an actor, writer, and director here in Chicago and has used yoga as a tool for deepening his creative process. The goals for any of Charles’ classes are 1) Guide the students to a deeper sense of their own authentic self and 2) Slow down the nervous system so the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual consciousnesses can rest, digest, and heal.
