...a union of the mind, body and soul.
Like most, I first started practicing yoga years ago as a way to move and stretch my body. Then, I suffered a back injury and yoga became the only physical activity I could do. I found that the more I showed up on my mat, the more it became a spiritual practice. It was a place to simply connect to my higher self. I wanted to learn more about the philosophy of yoga to deepen my practice, which eventually led me to teacher training. At first, I intended to learn and soak up the wisdom of yoga philosophy, but I quickly fell in love with teaching. Today, I am so grateful for my practice both on and off the mat. It is my happy place. I feel so blessed to have had incredible teachers along the way. Now, I get to share my love and passion for yoga with others.
“Yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in. And this is the point of spiritual practice; to make us teachable; to open our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are.” - Rolf Gates
Yoga with Renée is an experience everyone needs. No matter what’s happening in my life and the world around us, I always look forward to my time on the mat with Renée because I feel relaxed, calm and refocused afterwards. Of course there’s the added benefit of all the wonderful things yoga has to offer…increased flexibility, protection from injury and increased muscle strength…but it’s really Renée’s energy, warmth and kindness, and the beautiful souls who I’ve met in her practice, that draw me back again and again. --Gertrude V.
