Renata Widula, RYT 200

Renata Widula is a heart-based yoga asana teacher, dedicated to the practice and teachings of yoga. She trained in Ashtanga practice in Thailand, and has been hosting weekly donation-based yoga asana classes on the beachfront of Kauai for the last 3 years. Renata offers yoga asana with the purest intention to be of SERVICE to the community, welcoming all to enjoy the benefits of yoga asana, regardless of economic condition, trusting that it is in the giving that we truly receive.

"Renata's yoga asana classes allow you to go much deeper into your practice. You'll embark on a personal transformational journey that will continue unfolding for the rest of your life."

After exploring many styles, Renata fell in love with Ashtanga Yoga. And after years of practice, she discovered that there is much more to Yoga than mastering asana - to truly be a teacher of yoga, one must live the practice. This personal realization lead Renata to embrace the path of Bhakti. Currently, she volunteers and studies yoga philosophy at the Bhakti Yoga Shack on Kauai.

Renata's Yoga Asana classes allow you to explore your body, connect with your heart and breath, and find strength from within. She designs her classes so that everyone can participate by including modifications for beginners and supporting experienced yogis in reaching new heights. Renata is committed to offering Yoga as a healthy way of life to the community. She leads regular yoga classes, and hosts a weekly sunset yoga asana class on Kauai by donation

Renata, a long-time vegetarian/vegan, practices the yoga teachings of Ahimsa (non-violence). She walks the talk - living the practice on and off the mat.
