Grit and Dirt - Inspirational Stories of Grit and the Dirt on How to Change Your Life


Sep 11, 2017

If you have met Charlie Baxter Graham, you would remember. Charlie is a yoga instructor, runner,  store manager, and social activist, and is out to influence the world for good. 

This popular instructor is a light to many but has a deeper story to share about her past, and how she came to recovery and sobriety seven years ago.  Listen as Charlie talks about her time in a dark place and how the loneliness and isolation was overwhelming. At her lowest moment, Charlie found that telling the truth changed the course of her life forever. 

At first she transferred compulsive tendencies to activities like yoga and running. After that path led to injury, it opened the door for Charlie to ask herself some bigger questions about her life. After struggling with addiction she realized she needed to emulate other women in her life who were doing the things that she wanted to do. "Act like the person you want to be and eventually you will become that version of yourself." Eventually those things led her to finding balance over time. 

Armed with a magnetic personality, Charlie found that she had a responsibility to help others and inspire them on their own path.
