About Charlotte

Charlotte Ottley

Charlotte’s interest in healing and transformation began early on in her life. Her exposure to her parents’ practice of Transcendental Meditation as a method of obtaining inner peace, relaxation, self-knowledge, and transcendence ignited her curiosity about spirituality as a young child. Having both parents committed to such a transformative healing practice and experiencing many challenging life-changing events, Charlotte began her path of healing and spiritual awakening in her early 20s. Charlotte began practicing meditation at Spirit Rock Meditation Center and also began practicing various styles of yoga at several established yoga studios in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she was born and lived until her early 30s.Charlotte traveled to South East Asia in her late 20s where she learned the fundamentals of Tai Chi, the practice of meditation in motion, and Reiki, a form of healing using spiritually guided life force energy. Upon returning home to San Francisco, she studied Psychic Intuitive Healing training for many years with Laurie Schryver, a former teacher from the Berkeley Psychic Institute. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree from the University of the Pacific, Charlotte furthered her education in Transpersonal Psychology and Consciousness Studies at JFK University and the California Institute of Integral Studies. She worked as a Corporate Recruiter in the Financial, Fine Art, and IT industries in San Francisco for approximately seven years, but found herself unfulfilled and wanting to help others heal with her collective knowledge instead. Her passion and desire to help others seek inner peace and self-actualization became a priority and for the past twenty years, she has focused on sharing her healing gifts with others.

Some of Charlotte’s greatest transformation and spiritual growth came from nearly two decades of training with Body & Brain Yoga Tai Chi, a South Korean yoga company operating all around the world. Charlotte studied with Body & Brain in Atlanta, GA, Sedona, AZ, and Ellenville, NY. She holds a Brain Management Training certificate through Body & Brain and has been teaching Energy Yoga since 2007. Subsequently, she opened, managed, and taught yoga at Mandala Studio LLC, a Yoga, Tai Chi, and Dance studio located in Atlanta, GA.

On her continuous path of seeking deeper healing modalities, she experienced the practice of Breathwork with Leonard Orr and several other Breathwork pioneers beginning in 2017. In 2018 Charlotte became a Breathwork practitioner through Kelly Walden and Debi Miller’s Breathwork certification program. Charlotte holds a certificate in Intuitive Reading & Healing and is a Level II Reiki practitioner. Recently, she has been studying Pranic Healing at the Atlanta Pranic Healing Center and has integrated these transformative healing tools in her Intuitive Reading & Healing sessions. Charlotte is a native San Franciscan and currently resides in Marin County, CA.
