My name is Charles Van Dyke. Next to me is my "parrot" cat, Ponji. I am glad you decided to join
us. Sit down, take off your shoes, and stay a while. I hope you will
enjoy my page. Here is a snapshot of who I am and what I do.
It has been a while since I dusted the place, so I have
cleaned up a bit. It may take a bit to finish, but while I am working
on it, enjoy!

I practice Transcendental Meditation. TM is an important part of my life and I recommend it highly.
I teach a set of Yoga Asanas for those who are just starting to do Yoga and/or have difficulty with some of the more traditional postures.
I am married to a fine lady, who's name is Katharine. We are owned by a bunch of cats. You can see some photos in the Photo Gallery.
On Novenmber 1, 1998, I resigned from the Board of Directors and my position as Chairman of the Board for The National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (NAAFA). I still support NAAFA completely, I just had to resign for personal reasons. NAAFA is working to end discrimination based on size and weight and has one of the best size acceptance bookstores online.
I administer NAAFA's Internet mailing lists, fat-acceptance and naafa-members. Fat-acceptance is open to anyone interested in fat acceptance. To join send an e-mail to email@example.com with the message:
