As a Yoga Teacher of 2 years now I considered myself a good teacher, however, I was shocked at what I didn’t know or didn’t learn in my initial 200 YTT. These 5 modules really helped me understand my own practice more and help my students more. We all fall in love the physical… but knowing the “why” behind yoga, the theories and how to “cultivate” (as Renee says) has expanded my life, practice and teachings. My mind is blown!

Renee’s online modules and workshops [Cultivate Vitality Intensive formerly known as Cultivate Your Inner Yogi] are exactly what I needed. I knew nothing about yoga or Ayurveda before signing up because going to a studio or gym is not my thing. I just knew I needed to find a new path and break some destructive habits that kept haunting me and repeating. I loved how Renee’s first module assured me I didn’t need to know yoga or even be able to touch my toes to complete this intensive. First I purged excess from my closets and basement and then miraculously I noticed my thoughts and emotions were becoming more tolerable. Then it became clear to me how my “weighed down” lifestyle of having to have so much material in my life was actually “weighing me down”! So in having more energy and more room to think in my head, I was better able to focus on my body, my work, my family and eventually became more aware of how my lifestyle was not serving me well and now I live with new light, lightness and better awareness daily of how decisions, good or bad, effect my life daily. And the Yin Yoga is to die for, god bless ya! Thank you Renee!

“Renee is an awesome yoga instructor and guide. Her amazing knowledge of the body and yoga poses allows everyone the opportunity to be successful. If a certain pose does not work for you, she always has an alternative pose for you to try. She is always willing to give everyone that extra bit of one on one attention to help them out, whether it be to push themselves to the next level or to use a prop or support system to help them through an injury or a not so flexible body. I miss being able to go to her classes! Oh yes, she also has an awesome playlist!”
“Renee was my first taste of Yoga. As I stumbled into a unusually warm room, not knowing a downward dog from a hole in the ground she was a ray of sunshine! I had tried many different kinda of workouts but never really LOVED any of them. Suddenly I found myself counting the days till I could take Renee’s class again! I was going week after week. I was getting better and better! The best part was this Rockstar Renee knew who I WAS!! She remembered my name!! She encouraged me and helped me through each practice! Her spirt and enthusiasm was contagious! I especially LOVE her music!! Not your typical yoga experience to say the least!! I now practice Yoga 6 days and week. I’ve never felt better! I’m so connected with my spirit and breath. It’s been such a beautiful transition! I can even do a “Bird of Paradise”! Me! That’s right! I thank my lucky stars I was able to meet and love Renee!! She is truly one of a kind!” Namaste’
“I’ve been a fan, friend and student of Renee’s for about 3 years at both Lifetime Fitness and Core Power yoga in Westminster, CO and always looked forward to her classes. Some days I would take two classes with her and both would feel like a brand new experience. She takes such great care to make each class she teaches new and enlightening each time. As an exercise physiologist, I appreciated her knowledge of anatomy and the way she educated those she guided during her classes. Renee truly cares about those she guides and offers a genuine interest both on and off the mat.”
“Renee was my first yoga instructor and also my favorite after a year of practicing. As a single dad, yoga can be an intimidating activity to break into, but Renee’s classes always felt very welcoming. She was fantastic at guiding a complete noob like me while simultaneously keeping the regular pros in her classes on their toes. Renee’s energy is practical and grounded while very positive, which I found to be the most effective of a variety of teaching styles I saw. Go to her class and see for yourself, she is awesome sauce!”
“Renee’s knowledge reflects her expirience of over 10 years in Esthetics and Herbalism. She has helped the health of my skin from the inside and out. I dove right in with all 3 of her methods, yoga for detox, herbs and nutrition and her handcrafted skin care with minimal ingredients helped trouble shoot what works for my skin and what wasn’t. My health, skin and life have taken at true turn around.”
