Credentials

Charles MacInerney, E-RYT-500, has been at the forefront of the Yoga Revolution since 1989. He was one of the first yoga teachers in the country to take yoga into the business world (including Apple, 3M, Motorola and IBM), hospitals, government agencies, nursing homes, schools (K-12) and three Universities. At the University of Texas in Austin he developed specialized yoga programs for the departments of Dance, Music, Art, Kinesiology &  Health, the Women’s track, golf and volleyball teams, the campus dormitories, the faculty recreation program, and informal classes. In addition, he started yoga programs at the Texas School for the Blind, Seton Hospital, the Austin Heart Hospital, and worked with at-risk-youth. Charles is also a Continuing Education Provider for the Yoga Alliance, and is certified by IAYT as a Yoga Therapist at the 1000 hr level.

Charles is a gifted generalist. Most teachers are happy to be considered an expert in any one area of yoga. Charles has earned that reputation in multiple areas.  This is perhaps best exemplified by the range of subjects on which he has been published or quoted by major publications. He has written articles for Yoga Journal on Protecting the Knees in Pigeon, and Setting the Pace for your Home Practice, and he has been interviewed and quoted for YJ articles on Cardiac Yoga, Yoga for Overweight Students, Yoga & Creativity, Outdoor Yoga, and Yoga & Writing Retreats. He has been interviewed by the Chicago Tribune for articles on Visualization for Stress Management, and a piece on Meditation. The ya-logoWashington Post interviewed him for their story on Yoga in the Workplace. The Wall Street Journal for an article titled Yoga’s Appeal Stretches to Athletes. The Texas Monthly interviewed Charles for the Women’s Wellness column on Yoga,  and  The Houston Chronicle sent a reporter on a three day retreat with Charles, who wrote about it in an articled called A Yoga Retreat for All Types. In addition, Charles’ work with at risk youth earned him a place on the Panel Discussion for the South West Yoga Conference.

Charles is a pioneer in the development of the yoga retreat movement. Since 1992 he has led almost 100 three and four day retreats in Texas and Massachusetts, and over 50 retreats in exotic locations including Costa Rica, Guatemala and Mexico. Charles and Patricia Lewis, his writing partner, were the first to combine Yoga and Writing into a retreat, and they have now led dozens of these popular retreats in the US and abroad. Of the dozens of teachers now leading Yoga & Writing Retreats, over half are students of Charles and Patricia.

yacep-logoOver the past 25 years Charles has worked hard to lay the groundwork for Austin to emerge as an international center for yoga. In addition to teaching yoga to over 20,000 students, he played a significant role in the formation and continuing success of the Austin Yoga Teachers association, through which he co-founded Austin’s Free Day of Yoga which has been offered every Labor Day since 1998. He was instrumental in Austin hosting the Southwest Yoga conferences in 1999 and 2000, not only presenting but also serving  on the advisory board. In 2000 he co-founded the Texas Yoga Retreat, which now attracts teachers and students every year from across the state and beyond.

yoga-registerThrough the Living Yoga Program, which Charles co-founded in 1999 with Donna Belk and Ellen Smith, he has personally trained and certified over 400 teachers. Austin now has more registered yoga teachers than San Francisco, and perhaps the highest density of registered yoga teachers per capita of any city in the world with ten times more teachers per capita than New York! Graduates of the Living Yoga Program are now teaching yoga in 42 states and 14 countries.

iaytCharles continues to work hard to support the Austin yoga community, most recently helping to bring the International Association of Yoga Therapists annual international conference to Austin in June, 2014 where he was invited to teach and present. But what Charles is perhaps best known for locally, is his free outdoor Full Moon Yoga class which has been meeting monthly for almost 20 years.

Credentials – Charles MacInerney

In 1989 he founded Expanding Paradigms and publishes a newsletter with subscribers from around the U.S. and abroad. He is registered with the Yoga Register, and with the Yoga Alliance at the E-500 hour level, their highest level of accreditation. He is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. He is the co-founder of the Living Yoga Teacher Training Program and also of the Texas Yoga Retreat. He also serves on several boards including as an adviser for Yoga for Peace.

In addition to individuals, Charles has also worked with many organizations including: IBM; 3M; MOTOROLA; Sematech; Apple; Tivoli; Chase Bank; Seton Hospital; Brackenridge Hospital; The Austin Heart Hospital; The University of Texas (Departments of Music, Art, Dance, and Kinesiology & Health Education; the Women’s Athletic Program – golf, track and volleyball teams; and Recreational Sports); St. Edward’s University; AISD; EISD; and many government agencies.

He publishes a biannual Yoga Newsletter called Expanding Paradigms which has over 5000 subscribers around the world. He has been interviewed numerous times by the Yoga Journal, and was a contributing columnist in their “Ask Our Expert” column. He has also been published in dozens of magazines, and quoted in major newspapers like the Washington Post. He has contributed chapters to several books on yoga and meditation, and is in the process of writing his own book on the yoga of concentration.

Charles regularly offers workshops at studios throughout Texas, the US, and occasionally abroad. Since 1992 he has led almost a hundred weekend retreats in Texas and Massachusetts, and over 50 retreats in exotic locations including Costa Rica, Mexico and Guatemala.

In 1998 Charles was co-founder and coordinator for the highly successful 3-day conference on spiritual values in the work-place called ‘The Heart of Business Conference’ held at the Austin Convention Center.

Charles regularly teaches yoga and presents on a variety of topics at conferences including: the Southwest Yoga Conferences; The Texas Yoga Conferences; The International Yoga for Positive Health Conference (one of the few non-indian teachers invited to present); The National Wellness Conference in Wisconsin; The National Education Wellness Seminar in Arizona; Women in the Public Sector Annual Conference; Executive Women in Texas Government; Women & Family Heart Disease Conference. On several occasions he has been a keynote speaker at Texas Protective Services conferences; he was the a keynote speaker for 3M’s innovation banquet speaking on the topic of creativity; and he presented on Yoga and Meditation at SAMA (a conference for medical students and interns in Chicago); and dozens more in the past 5 years not listed here.

Charles  worked closely with Seton Hospital to help design and implement a cardiac reversal program centered around lifestyle changes, including yoga, meditation, breathing, diet, and communication skills. This pilot program ran from 1998-2000. In 2001 he teamed up with Hearts & Minds, a cardiac rehabilitation center affiliated with the Austin Heart Hospital.  Based in large part on the success of these programs he was invited to give the closing Keynote at the Cardiac Conference sponsored by Seton Hospital, and returned the following year as their opening keynote speaker.  He also presented on Yoga for Cardiac Rehabilitation at the 12TH Annual Texas Association of Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Rehabilitation Conference.

Charles is a driving force behind the movement to build greater community within and between yoga enthusiasts from across the state of Texas and from all styles of yoga. He has played an active role in the formation of Yoga associations in Austin, Dallas and San Antonio. He is a co-founder, and continues to help organize, present and facilitate each year since 2001 at the  annual “Texas Yoga Retreat”, which draws teachers and students from across the Southwest.

Charles is the co-founder and instructor with the Living Yoga Teacher Training School with 500 graduates teaching Yoga in 42 states and 12 countries.
