Past Trips


Renee does a great job hosting a yoga weekend! All four classes presented new learnings and fun. Her approach to calling yogis in is truly magical. The group of women was dynamic and fun. Sun Mountain Center was a nice getaway with some novelty incorporated into the feel. The vegetarian fare was delicious and Chris's tour of the biodynamic farm was interesting. Can't wait for the next getaway!
Most Excellent! I had a lovely experience. As always, Renees' yoga retreats are awesome fun, supportive of your journey and whatever life experiences one may be having. I always come away from her retreats feeling refreshed, grounded and having expanded my world view. The Xinalani Retreat Center has beautiful, well cared for grounds, wonderful staff, clean rooms, comfortable mattresses, and fantastic food. My only complaint is that I ate too much!
This was my 11th retreat with Renee. She's a gifted yoga teacher who has the technical knowhow to train students on alignment while helping them understand the emotional and spiritual side of yoga. As a retreat leader, she creates an environment that allows people to connect with one another, creates the space for us to work through our "stuff", and teaches us how to bring that retreat feeling home through connecting with ourselves and one another. The work that she puts into her retreat is genuine, and she continues to be a support system for her students after the retreat. My life has changed since attending my first retreat with Renee.
The location was serene and peaceful. The company was intelligent, warm, and loving. The food was healthy and delicious. The yoga classes were energizing and restorative, and deeply freeing. Renee is an all around wonderful retreat leader, yoga teacher, mentor, and a friend. If you can register quickly enough, you're fortunate and guaranteed to have a fulfilling and transformative experience. I can't wait for my next retreat with Renee. Thank you!

Renee held such a gentle and soft space to practice and connect. Haramara Retreat was simply stunning. I was able to immerse myself completely and live into the beauty of the jungle and seaside. I will be back. Namaste
Great time with wonderful people and amazing food. The setting was fabulous! Thank you!!!
This was my first yoga retreat and it surpassed all my expectations. Renee did an amazing job designing a wonderful getaway from everyday life. I had time to relax, restore and grow with other like-minded women. The food was fantastic and the energy was light-hearted, fun and nurturing. Renee lead 3 completely different classes and took us on a hike. She also left time for an introvert like me to escape on my own. I don't know how I'll top this experience but I would certainly try another one of her retreats!

Fantastic weekend! Wonderful space, amazing people and comfortable accommodations.
There is something very calming about Renee's presence that inspires reflection, relaxation and renewal. She opened my mind and body with her contagious passion for connecting with the world and helped me to ground again with my core being. Her guided yoga instruction is playful and masterful. And if that weren't enough, she prepared an entire retreat with everything planned with fluidity, flavor and a palpable sense of community. I love this woman and am so grateful she's committed herself to helping people to connect with who they truly are!
