[asked by a new student as she opened her eyes after a private session]
renee began practicing yoga 15 years ago in manhattan under marco rojas & jenny aurthur, teachers strongly influenced by the practice of iyengar, or alignment-based yoga, which emphasizes the space & grace created when the body opens.
renee's understanding of yoga changed when she began to practice in phoenix under teachers who believe the true practice of yoga isn't how well we execute the pose.
it's how well we can let ourselves ease into the pose & surrender to the breath & the stillness found there.
renee's been teaching since 2017.
