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.
Our guest teacher, Sky, has been practicing yoga for over ten years. His asana roots began with Ashtanga Vinyasa classes from his father in Texas, then unfolded into a deep personal practice, which culminated in a year-long, 350-hour certification in the Australian asana style known as Veda Yoga. Sky's teaching style - which he calls Skyoga - infuses Ashtanga and Vinyasa with Yin and Veda Yoga, plus a touch of Bhakti to create a truly unique experience that many students are drawn to from all levels. Sky hosts ongoing Yoga Retreats on the Hawaiian islands, and has taught in over three continents worldwide. He adapts each individual class to the specific environment and energetic needs of his students.
