Renee was introduced to yoga in her late teens and was immediately drawn to the practice's ability to restore balance in her life, body and mind. Pranayama (breath work) and linking breath to movement was her gateway into meditation and the more philosophical aspects of yoga. Many times over, the practice of yoga has led her back from imbalance and disease to balance and holistic health.
She has since become a 500 hour certified yoga instructor specializing in alignment based vinyasa flow. She completed her 500 hours of training with Natasha Rizopoulos, founder of Align Your Flow Yoga, and continues to have the honor to call Natasha her teacher. She has also studied with M.C.Yogi and Amanda Giacomini, who have taught her to bring a sense of fun, play and music into her practice and into her teaching.
She is passionate about sharing her yoga practice with others, to help bring ease, balance and health back into their life, body and mind. When she isn't practicing, teaching or studying yoga, you can find Renee at her hair studio, creating beautiful hair, as a way to make people feel amazing and to further serve her community and the environment by using the best environmentally friendly, PETA approved, sustainably and ethically sourced products.
She loves to get lost on long walks in nature, cook healthy and delicious meals for family and friends, and to snuggle with her cat Luna and her boyfriend Tyson.
