Hi! I'm Charlene Smith a.k.a. Queen C, Founder & CEO of InnerVerse Connect
I am so honoured that you found your way here... maybe we have met at an event, out and about in the real world, or connected in the virtual world! However you got here, welcome home my love!
I am a performing artist & mindful movement teacher who teaches womxn and folx how to harness, amplify and radiate Sacred Body Confidence from crown to sole!
Here at InnerVerse Connect, we stay focused on connecting you to your inner cosmos and guiding you to the fullest embodiment of your greatest self.
Here is where you will learn everything you need to tap into your divinely feminine self, dancing with the freedom, trust and expression of your body that you have always desired.
Yoga dance flow (YogiDance) followed by Africanist & Caribbean dance grooves will bring you home into your own rhythm, while building a body, mind and spirit of strength & grace.
Creating sacred resiliency through movement, you will learn different twerk techniques, practice combos, dance choreography and utilize sensual embodiment practices that will take you from awkward uncertainty to authentic expression.
You will learn to question how you can navigate this Africanist movement in body-affirming ways outside of the standard Euro-centric context. We return the twerk back to its original context… sacred ceremonial space that celebrates the body rather than objectifying it.
This is a process of dismantling the patriarchal oppression of the feminine and reclaiming your body in a positive, uplifting and supportive environment.
Welcome to your SACRED JOURNEY!
Yoga from an Afro-Caribbean perspective
Inner Oasis Yoga with Queen C is a mindful movement journey to your inner oasis.
While the world is swept up in the storm, the principles of our mystic ancestors remind us that within us all is an oasis of peace, truth and divinity.
These four part series featuring both Yin & Yang styles of yogic movement, is designed with the intention of relaxing any fear based impulses of your nervous system, creating balance within your mind and harmony within your spirit. We are not defined by your circumstances, we are defined by our response to them.
Each practice will incorporate Yang (active) and Yin (passive) components inspired by both the Indian Yogic Principles and philosophies from Ancient Egypt (Kemetic Yoga).
Each class consists of a kemetic inspired flow for body alignment, followed by yin yoga for a deep stretch & breathwork for clearing.

Tracy, YogiDance Twerker
I had the honour of participating in a full moon, twerk workshop with Char, and it was so magical. ✨ Char has a beautiful, radiant, fun energy and it was fun to twerk, release, write, stretch & flow with her and tribe. I first saw Char years ago, at a festival, although I never said hiiii so she likely doesn’t remember me. But I will say she is always smiling and welcoming! Thank you for holding the space, can’t wait for the next one!💜
Madison, Sacred Body Confidence Mentee
I am nowhere near exaggerating when I tell you that Charlene literally changed my life. She arrived like an angel at a time when I needed her most. She helped me to find the connection between my mind and body, so that I was able to bring the peace and strength I found in her yoga classes to the rest of my life, whether it was managing my mental health, body confidence, relationships, or work. Not only is she an amazing teacher, but she brings light and love with her wherever she goes and to whomever she interacts with. I am so happy and honoured to have built a strong connection and bond with her over the years. Love you, Char!
Carlos, Sacred Body Confidence Mentee
Charlene has a way of always providing a wonderful space where you can move, play and express freely and authentically. Her Twerkshops and Egyptian inspired yoga classes known as Inner Oasis always leave me feeling tuned in, at peace, and just absolutely blissful! I highly recommend!
