What’s Yoga for Renewal?

My name is Elisabeth Perucca. I am an Atlanta-based IAYT-certified yoga therapist, and I have designed Yoga for Renewal out of my own life experience.

Yoga for Renewal is a form of yoga therapy, a one-of-a-kind yoga-based healing modality that helps you deepen your healing journey.

The most beautiful thing about Yoga for Renewal is that it is for everybody—whether you are young, in your 90’s or in a wheelchair.

It uses two components—a unique gentle yoga practice that I learned from my teacher, Aline Frati, for 14 years in Paris, and a safe space to speak your truth.

The yoga practice that I teach helps you listen to your body and dissolve repetitive patterns of fear and anxiety that come from childhood and get fixed in the body in the form of pain.

My teacher, Aline Frati (1938-2018), was a yoga teacher of 40 years, who lived in Paris. Aline followed the teaching of Jean  Klein.

The healing circle is a safe space where you are invited to share your deepest longings.

The combination of both the yoga practice and the healing circle makes Yoga for Renewal a deep self-care experience that brings more wholeness, authenticity and aliveness in your life.

I am an IAYT-Certified (C-IAYT) Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists, and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 500) with Yoga Alliance. The yoga therapy components of my teaching are based on my IAYT certification, not derived from my status as an RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance Registry.
