Registered Yoga Instructors

Rena Hicks LMT, LPTA, RYT200


Rena began teaching Yoga in 2018 and created a yoga studio as a way for Clients to gain independence and have the tools to continue toward their own wellness. She realized through Massage Therapy and a 20 year history as a Physical Therapist Assistant that Yoga was the natural progression in learning and teaching. She is passionate about Yoga Nidra, alignment, and teaching Yogic Philosophy to integrate into life. She is currently working on a combination of yogic postures, nerve glides, and multi-plane movement that melds together her history of physical therapy, massage, and yoga, called Yoga Sway. Rena is also ready to lead yoga retreats to the beautiful Blue Zone identified Island of Ikaria, Greece. Their motto is "the place where people forget to die" due to their love of life, lack of disease and illness, and truly embrace living in the moment. Rena is also approved to substitute Yoga Nidra teaching for 200 hour teacher, Stephanie Lynn E-Ryt500 at Yen Yoga.
