My name is Renee Watkins and I am a certified yoga instructor with over 3 years of experience. In 2014 I graduated as the first African American student from Kali Yuga Yoga with over 200 hours of training. I also received by Bachelors in Criminal Justice from Tennessee State University. I started RW Yoga with aims to promote yoga for healthy lifestyles, discipline, openness, love and internal growth, particularly amongst women of color. I am also a part of the founding team for a Nashville-base startup, Fathom, the lifestyle platform for youth empowerment, and I lead the project Inner Chi where we aim to provide a space for artistic expression to cultivate a culture of holistic well-being and positivity through yoga and fine arts.
