OM meets… Charlotta Martinus

Charlotta Martinus is on a mission to introduce teenagers to the wonders of yoga. Here, the Teen Yoga founder tells OM that the need for yoga among younger people has never been more urgent

How did you first get into yoga

While I was pregnant, my sister, who is a GP, ordered me to slow down and start taking care of myself. I was a partying BBC TV producer at the time and didn’t know how to slow down.

Who inspired you in those early days

My sister and my first teacher, Swami at the Sivananda Putney centre in 1998, who is still my teacher and also my colleague, because she embodies yoga.

What does yoga give you personally

Internal space, peace of mind; it is my compass north. Therefore, it gives me more meaningful relationships, perspective on what is important as well as respect for my physical and mental health. It is my confession, my church, my poetry, my inspiration, my rock, my solid point, my income, my flow: it allows me to feed my soul and listen and act from my soul.
