Renee is now a Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance and has been teaching yoga in Scotts Valley and Santa Cruz, California for the past 4 years. She has worked with students who are completely new to yoga as well as seasoned yoga practitioners and finds joy in all areas of the spectrum.
