Charym Yoga Studio is a beautiful space to find your yogi community and start a new practice, or step back into one. We love it there and always enjoy our “check-out for an hour or so” experience. We stopped by recently to take Andrew Carazza’s Flourish and Flow class and to find out what’s new with Charym Director Nicole Renée Matthews.
Breathe in, empty out, here’s Charym Yoga Studio. ??♀️?♀️

“The world would be a more peaceful place if we all incorporated a little yoga into our lives”Us.
Peace and ease. Sign us up.
Charym classes focus on flowing movements with deep periods of relaxation. Their classes are perfect for coming back to a settled place within your body, where you’re most connected to your source. Imagine feeling more at ease in your body.
That’s what we’re talking about!
“Charym was founded nearly 15 years ago. When you walk into my Monday night class as a visitor, you’ll meet a group of people who know and enjoy seeing one another. Prepare to be welcomed. Some teachers host a more quiet space to start class and all classes eventually end up there. What people appreciate about yoga at Charym is receiving different aspects of study from each teacher. They offer alignment, new adaptations, philosophy, and mindfulness as an embodied experience. When you read our class descriptions, you can hear our teachers convey their offering.” – Nicole Renée, Director.
You’ll find classes with classic sun salutations, Katonah and Kundalini-inspired practices, and traditional Hatha practices. The Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory artistic director Victoria Mazzarelli offers her own specialty class that we have to check out called Ballet Yoga Flow.
Flourish & Flow
Andrew took us through a delicious-for-the-spine practice and all round fabulous stretch.
A Charym lesson: Lay on your mat
When it’s hard to want to move into your yoga practice just lay down on the mat. Grace showed us a few simple shapes to do first thing in the morning to set your day off on the right foot! It doesn’t have to be complicated or fancy.
Allow us to demonstrate…
An oasis of tranquility
Charym Yoga Studio is housed within an award-winning reuse of a 19th-century lumberyard at West Street Yard and was designed by owner Alexandra Champalimaud. When you yoga at Charym you’ll enjoy your savasana with a view of exposed beams, rustic ceilings, modern accents, and plenty of good karma.

Charym hosts 16 regular classes each week plus special events. Classes are available online and in person. Their best-kept secret is that Charym teachers are available for private instruction in the studio or at your residence! Availability is listed on their site for ease in planning for your group vacation or celebration. Many bachelorette parties have visited Charym for a bespoke experience. They also have health coaches and mentors for those looking to spark a simplified yet holistic dedication to their life.
Coming up – add to calendar!
Not to be missed, Mike Torrant will be teaching Yoga al fresco on Saturday mornings at 10 AM at Laurel Ridge Farm, Litchfield. A breathtaking location!
