She is a certified Mindfulness and Compassion Teacher and works full time as a Holistic Body-Centred Therapist in private practice in Sydney, NSW.
'Renata is a gifted teacher and I like very much the way she tunes in to an individual's response and honour that, whilst giving back what might be a good offering for them as well.
I can see that Renata has studied the dharma extensively and it is fab to be the recipient of this specialised knowledge. I love the space and authenticity in her teachings as well as inclusion of relevance to trauma and the unconscious as related to processing deep feelings. I also really enjoyed the class on The Inner Critic!
It seems to me that she lives what she teaches. It is so wonderful to experience that.
