What people say about my retreats, yoga classes, and coaching.


What’s unique about this retreat is the personal growth element. For me that was the most important, it’s really special. The best candidate for this retreat is someone that longs for personal growth.  You bring people here and say “come and think over your life, let me help you if you don’t have time to think about this in detail”.

There were many great moments, but my favorite was the second day during the morning meditation before yoga. Something just touched me. I kind of sobbed silently uncontrollably, the tears just streaming down my face. That was a very profound moment. When you meditate and you can get into that. Obviously I was connected to something, my higher self or something. The meditation set the tone very very right.

The other part that I really enjoy is when you took us to the lagoon. To practice yoga in that open space and in that environment, that was a very very nice experience. You are showing those interested in yoga different styles to look at. You take people to acro yoga and otherwise they would have never tried. You incorporate sound healing, live music, the singing bowls. That alone I think it’s worth the trip.

I think your retreat really sort of opened my eyes. This is not like other retreats. It’s for people who are ready to get into that personal growth realm. Yoga is just icing on the cake.

I felt much more grounded and peaceful after the retreat. Many people told me they noticed an increase in my frequency after I returned from Tulum.

I’ve learned that I was storing emotions in the hips! Hence, me crying a lot after performing some hip openers in yin yoga! Since the retreat I’m more mindful that the hips are a delicate area that need regular care. I also use the self-reflection techniques and the visualization exercises in my day-to-day life.

I got interested in the retreat because of the program - yoga and also activities outside of the retreat in nature. My favorite parts of the week were the sound healing and diving in a beautiful cenote.

This retreat is perfect for a person that is interested in yoga and self-reflection, and wants some guidelines towards building a bright future. Also a person that has not had in depth coaching before, then the coaching in the retreat will really add value and extraordinary aha moments.

Renée is an amazing person to guide this retreat. She is passionate, calm, sweet and open minded. She makes you feel very much at home and is open to discuss anything. Lastly, she is a great yoga teacher and her energy is amazing.

I was looking for a retreat that went beyond just physical yoga and dug deeper into creating true connections with other participants.  Knowing we would be focusing on how to apply what we got from the retreat into our everyday lives.

What I enjoyed most were the conversations we had at the table when we were having our delicious vegetarian meals. Also the blend of time to ourselves, activities that pushed us out of our comfort zone, and doing yoga in the lagoon, and the diving option!

After this week I felt like I was able to access a deeper side of myself and to also connect with others who may have been different but seeing the connection that spirituality and yoga can bring.

This retreat is perfect for someone who is looking to explore their own spirituality and wants an instructor who truly cares about the participants.

“I never thought I’d be a yoga kind of guy until I met Renée. Now when I do my yoga routines nearly a year later it’s her voice I hear in my head telling me I’m not allowed to do Savasana pose for a whole lesson!

Renée’s enthusiasm for yoga is infectious and inspiring and she gives her all in each lesson to engage with everyone. In particular, I like that she always adjusts to the energy and mood of the class so they’re never exactly the same. An absolute pleasure to learn from!!!!!”

Renée is such a sweet soul. She is one of the most heart-warming people and yoga teachers I know. She easily creates a sacred and peaceful space in her classes and guides you safely through the yoga class. Additionally she is super into backbends, so if you are seeking for increasing your confidence, embracing yourself, and to experience life on the bright side go ahead and spent some time with her.

I had a great private yoga class with Renée! She made sure the class was at a pace that was right for me. The yoga practice was strengthening and we ended it with some relaxing poses followed by meditation. Renée is an amazing teacher!

I met Renée, this caring and loving human being while I was volunteering at the hostel in Sri Lanka, She was the onsite yoga teacher.
Sunset yoga class would be hold everyday, and oh my, It was the event I look forward to every day.
A perfect balance would be how I describe her class, It's amazing how Renée is able to create this calm ambience in the space, a safe zone where I can explore yoga for the first time without any concern as she guided.
While we are on the different side of the planet now, I carry her inspiration with me as I look forward to see her and be in her class again.
