Renelle YUJ ambassador

A brief overview


Can you introduce yourself ? My name is Renelle, but since my training, following a slight confusion, I am more often called Rebel! I am a mother of 3 teenagers, I live between Lille and Le Touquet in the north of France. I worked in advertising photography, video, entertainment and cinema. I touch what touches me :) I also paint, draw or sculpt sometimes. Today, I give Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yin classes from time to time. I mainly do replacements, seasons and I organize "Yoga Events". A student recently baptized me "the free electron"! I really like to travel, discover and share.

When and how did this passion for yoga come to you? I practiced dance a lot but a skiing accident took dance away from my life for many years.

I missed the benefits of a physical discipline ... I meet Ashtanga vinyasa for the first time in Lille and the discovery of this physical practice related to breath and concentration rather than performance is then a revelation for me ... Today, as a return to my roots, I reconnect with physical work and a connection to oneself, to others and to nature.

What does yoga represent in your daily life? Contrary to my temperament ( Vata ), yoga brings me a routine that does not tire me. Yoga helps me ask myself the right questions, without these same questions poisoning my life. I observe instead of judging myself, I am much more benevolent with myself...

Do you find time to practice during your travels? I have a lot more time to practice while traveling than at home when I have the kids!
More seriously, when I think of travel today, it's first of all to discover other practices or train myself.

I'm planning a trip for my son's 13th birthday where our only concerns will be Surf and Yoga!

What is your favorite YUJ product? The " VOULEZ-VOUS " T-Shirt, the " OMM " tank top. Pretty much any top actually. I like the idea of ​​the messages, of not taking yourself seriously!


The world


What is your favorite country so far? Thailand but especially the small island of Koh Tao. For the kindness and good humor of its inhabitants, for the scent of the orchids and because eating healthy there is not a headache.
I liked all the countries I visited, each time they are an experience of meeting and sharing.

I would love to go to Costa Rica soon. And in India the following year.

Good addresses to share?
-Yoga classes atStephie Yoga in Lille.
-In Koh Tao, go sleep on Shark Bay at Taa Toh Sea View.
-In Touquet, in summer, the O'Safran , a beach bar, with great detox juices.

-In Paris, I like to have lunch or dinner at Marianne (rue des rosiers) or have a Vegan burger at Hank Burger.

For you "The place to be" is it? Love, sun, sea and yoga classes!


indiscretions


In the cinema, which actors/directors make you dream? Oh ! Huge question! The Coen brothers, Tarantino, Paul Thomas Anderson for Magnolia, Tim Burton, Coppola…

A quote that defines you? "The boats are safe in the ports but they are not made for that." Yiddish proverb.

What does a day in the life of Renelle look like? It changes all the time! If I have children or not, if I'm in Lille in the city or in Le Touquet by the sea, etc...

I can get up early, but I also love sleeping in! Depending on my replacements or my lessons in season, the schedules of the lessons I give are very variable. Otherwise, I'm working on my projects: Yoga vents and also a future Yoga House on the Opal Coast with Yoga & sports retreats. Then it's Yoga practice, reading about yoga, (books, blogs, etc …) to continue to train myself even outside of training, find new playlists for my classes.

I like to cook too (right now I'm making Green Smoothie Bowls for my kids)

In the evening, I love watching good films or documentaries.
 
 
If you come around, don't hesitate to come and practice with me 😉
