Being a lifelong athlete, Renee loves to run, mountain bike, hike and ski. She came to find herself on a yoga mat to prevent injury, but soon realized yoga empowered her with a mental awareness and clarity that she had never experienced before. She felt the need to bring this mind body transformative experience to others, so after practicing yoga for over ten years, became a yoga teacher.
Renee is E-RYT 200 registered with Yoga Alliance, and is currently earning her RYT 500 at Eight Limbs Yoga Centers Seattle. She completed SHAKTI’s Teacher Assisting Program (TAP) and SHAKTI’s Teacher Mentorship Program (TMP) with Lisa Black. She has earned her 40 hour ‘Yoga Sutra Intensive’ certification with Rod Stryker and has been a student at UCLA studying mindfulness.
Renee has traveled extensively to workshops with her favorite teachers Shiva Rea, Rod Stryker, Dharma Mittra and Baron Baptiste who inspire her daily, on and off her mat. She believes yoga is a moving meditation and you will find her classes are fun, challenging and filled with guidance to help you reveal your inner power and true beauty that is with in us all.
