Renee Brown

Renee Uma Brown, E-RYT-500 therapeutic yoga at Asheville Yoga Center with over a 1000 hours of training, Reflexologist, Reiki Master, Thai Body Worker.  “I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2010 after completing a mini-triathalon.  I felt completely defeated and betrayed by my body. I spent almost two years sedentary, heavily medicated and completely miserable.  Then comes yoga in 2012…I fell in love with it immediately! Yoga for me is a work-in not a work-out. I slowly started breathing, connecting breath to movement, letting go of false thoughts and ideas, learning to love and appreciate my body again. One of my favorite quotes is ‘she believed she could, so she did.’  I believe that yoga is for Every BODY. You begin where you are. If you are not feeling your best, are not flexible, feel disconnected from your body then please give yoga a try. Yoga transformed my life and it can transform yours too. I can modify and tailor any pose to meet you where you are in this moment.  If you can breathe then you can do yoga.”
