Born and raised in Nashville, Renee Watkins had a heavy self awareness when she became pregnant at 17. Due to the physical changes due to child birth, she battled depression and anxiety but turned to modeling to cope. Through modeling she was introduced to yoga as a way to stay fit.
After months of a home practice she stumbled into her first yoga class held in the backyard of a friend. The physical practice turned into something much more meaningful! As she began to move her limbs and saw how her body changed, she began to notice how her mind was also changing. With yoga she learned how to address issues in her physical and mental body in a healthy manner.
Renee completed yoga teacher training at Kali Yuga Yoga in the Fall of 2014 with the goal of helping underserved communities. As someone who lived in the housing projects of Nashville as a kid, she understands the importance of offering individuals the same opportunities found in areas across town. Because she goes into places others refuse to go, offers classes at prices people would not think of, she has been allowed to meet people with phenomenal stories.
Renee hopes to soon open a yoga school in Middle Tennessee so that she can offer affordable yoga teacher training certifications to help diversify the yoga community beyond Instagram.
You can help make that dream a reality by attending classes, donating yoga mats/blocks/funds, and sharing the class schedule.
