Renée Le Verrier
I am a certified yoga instructor who focuses on creating adaptations and modifications for individuals who find it challenging to move with ease. As a stroke survivor and a person living with Parkinson's disease, I know that physical limitations can cause a sense of disconnection not only with our bodies but also within ourselves. For me, yoga smoothes the way and leads to greater fluidity and balance in my body as well as in my spirit. Through teaching, writing and presenting about yoga, I hope to share this path to strength and grace.
