Melissa is a trauma-informed yoga teacher, social worker, and highly sensitive person. She's passionate about helping others heal anxiety and trauma while cultivating authentic self-love. Melissa's philosophy is that the root cause of many of our personal and societal problems is a disconnection from our true selves. She sees yoga and connection to the natural world as two of the most powerful means we have to heal ourselves and communities. When she's not yoga-ing, you can find her hiking, salsa dancing, scuba diving, crosswording, reading, and cooking creative concoctions in her kitchen.

It was a wonderful trip, ideal for escaping the big city and experiencing glorious nature. The retreat was very successful as a forum for introverts and HSPs to come together and share experiences.

Melissa always makes the best experience possible for her retreat guests. I had a wonderful time and look forward to the next one.
By Jennifer M for Tennessee Yoga Retreat for Introverts & HSPs on 23 Sep, 2021
I had an extremely uplifting time during this retreat with other wonderful people. I learned a lot about myself and it was exactly what I needed. Melissa was very attentive and considerate when it came to making sure everyone had what they wanted/needed during the stay, more than willing to accommodate the varying needs of a slightly larger group. Attention to detail, passion for what she does and an overall caring heart is what I'll remember the most. I will definitely strongly consider doing future retreats with Melissa.

When you travel with Melissa Renzi ,whether it be to another continent or two hours from home, you will enter a new world . It is a world of caring, sharing and learning. The Retreat Center , located in a large country farm was ideal for relaxing and contemplation. The Yoga was restorative and unlike what most of us are accustomed to . It provided an ideal antidote to pandemic stress. Melissa delivers fully on the promise of her trip description. She is conscientious and thoughtful with each participant.

Tennessee was a most beautiful place made even better by staying close to nature with other people who are sensitive souls. Melissa makes sure that everyone feels included and nurtured through the entire experience. What a wonderful and relaxing experience to make new friends with other people who appreciate life as you do. The trip was full of time for reflection and time for interaction. Just the thing that my soul needed.
