Hi! I'm Renee and I've been on the yoga path for....... 20+ years! I'd have to say my biggest yoga lesson has been learning to be present for the full experience of life; joy, pain, contentment, frustration, boredom, passion- you name it! And the second biggest lesson is that mindfulness and yoga are a daily practice. Yoga is really a way of moving through life more awake, aware, more present, and more at ease. As for credentials, I'm a certified E-RYT 200 yoga teacher, trained in hatha, vinyasa, restorative & prenatal yoga. I also have a degree in counseling which has been so essential to helping me understand how to infuse yoga off the mat in daily life I LOVE sharing the gifts of yoga because this practice has been ESSENTIAL to my own wellbeing. I truly hope this practice helps you as much as it helps me. Oh yeah, and I'm also a mom, love to dance, be outdoors, and live with my hubby beautiful daughter in sunny San Diego, California. renee@reneegauthier.com


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
