Renee Howell


Hello, my name is Renee. Yoga divinely entered my life in 2006. At that time things were changing rapidly, and my Yoga mat became a place where I could feel grounded and find solace. Even though I had been a group fitness instructor for years prior to that, I began feeling called to offer the wonderful experience of Yoga to others. I became certified through Yogafit and went on to complete levels 1-4. I taught in studios, privately, as well as for larger fitness chains. During those 10 years it became more and more apparent to me that Yoga and its philosophies were helping to guide me throughout the day, and offering me the Spirituality and community I needed to live and to enjoy life on life’s terms.

I moved to Bellingham in 2017 through direction of Spirit, which I so intimately began to recognize and have crystalize, through Yoga. Although I had been teaching various forms of Hatha yoga, my path led me to Kundalini Yoga. I spent a month in an Ashram at the Himalayan Institute in the Pennsylvanian countryside, where I practiced Kundalini with master teacher Kia Miller.

Becoming a bit more settled here in Bellingham, I now feel inspired and very enthusiastic to begin teaching again! I am honored to be able to share Kundalini and all of its wonderful benefits here at Inspire Studio.


Kundalini Yoga

 Thursdays 9:00-10:30 am

 First class is free, $15 drop in, $60 for 5 class card, $100 for 10 class card

The underlying theme of this class is “Moving Emotion to Devotion”. The Kriyas (exercise sets), breathwork, mantras, and meditation practiced will encourage movement of any “stuck energy” we may have surrounding old thinking and behaviors that no longer serve us. The Kriyas chosen will help to create homeostasis in our nervous system, and bring the Spirit, mind, and body into balance. We will learn ways to shift our consciousness and thus be better able to handle life on life’s terms.

Inspire Studio Reviews

  • Julia Moss ★★★★★
    This historical one room yoga studio is a beautiful place for a class. Instructors range in style, class time, and difficulty but owner Ruby Koa does a beautiful job filling her space with love. Drop in for a sweat at the noon power hour on Tuesday or Thursday, start your weekend off right with a free meditation class Friday afternoon or ever try the new aerial yoga class offered with silks. Inspire is an incredible place to find community and spirit.
