Renate worked as a nurse before training to become and qualified Iyengar Yoga teacher in the early 1990s. Later she gained a Yoga therapy qualification to connect her nursing background with teaching Yoga, and holds British Wheel of Yoga teacher status. She has been teaching for all those years in South East London and since 1989 at the City Lit, and has previously run Yoga weekends and yoga holidays abroad. As a teacher, Renate focuses on correct alignment in the yoga postures, using a variety of equipment; breath work is often included and each class finishes with a guided relaxation. Renate enjoys Dances of Universal Peace where she learned many chants from different spiritual traditions.
