Dear Dominique, I want to thank you for sharing all the information, your knowledge and passion for Yoga, health and environment etc. It was an intensive challenging course, but after all, I feel the progress and the change in my body. I am really happy to have taken 300 hrs TTC with you. I will keep practicing and eating healthy which is sometime difficult for me... I miss the days we spent together. One day, hopefully not too far in the future, I hope to see you again and practice with you… Hugs. Y.M. Rishikesh 300-hr ttc Aug~Sept 2015


"That in whom reside all beings and who resides in all beings, who is the giver of grace to all, the Supreme Soul of the universe, the limitless being --I am That." Amritbindu Upanishad

I did two trainings with the Yogayantra school and can not recommend it enough because of its high quality and the amount of knowledge that the teacher has passed to students. She takes responsibility and justice to her teaching and also never stops inspire students to practice and to spread the art of yoga. All in all, I am one of the many lucky students to have met and studied with Dominique. I highly recommend the school to everyone whom wants to learn and deepen knowledge of vinyasa and yoga in general. N.T. 200 Nha Trang & 300 Rishikesh Jan 2015


A mi hacer la formación con la Domi fue de las mejores cosas que me ha pasado en la vida. Al principio no estaga segura con quien hacer algo tan importante como una formación de yoga. Principalmente por que ya había hecho una que en sintesis fue pobre y lejos de mi estilo de yoga. Pero me informe de la experiencia y trayectoria de la Domi, y mi intuición y destino dieron el Si, y me inscribí.


Supeoó por lejos mis expectativas y aprendí la base de la que ahora construye mi vida. Hacer una de las bases de mi camino como instructor de yoga con ella, es lo que me permite hoy enseñar, practicar y vivir el yoga con profundidad, compromiso, y humilidad, entendiendo que no se construye de la noche a la mañana y que nunca se termina de construir. Hoy en día me siento segura y capaz de vivir y transmitir todo lo que ahi aprendí en cada una de mis clases y prácticas personales. Además al ser una certificación avalada internacionalmente es la herramienta que me sirvió al momento de venirme a vivir a Nueva Zelanda… un lugar dentro de la comunidad local de yoga. Hoy en día en Auckland, NZ, gracias a eso y al flow del universo doy 10 clases a la semana en distintos centros y principales gimnasios de la ciudad, con humildad y devoción por la práctica diaria y la formación que tuve de base. Buena suerte para todos, ojala les sirva de motivación. Ser un real profesor de yoga se construye día a día después de miliones y miliones de práticas con mucho esfuerzo donde uno nunca termina de aprender y donde lo mas tangible que uno tien para afirmarse es tener o haber tenido un buen profesor como Dominique. Namaste. C.M. Auckland (ttc chile) Nov 2013.


Aloha Dominique! I hope your doing well I never got a chance to say thank you so much for everything. Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge, for being strict with us, and thank you for giving me the tools to navigate this crazy world. You are truly one of the most inspiring persons I have ever met. K.R.


Thankyou so much Dominique. All photos are my unforgetable and experienced memories, including a great teacher, many lovely friends and those hard working days hihihi. I always remember you said : "When u want to do something,JUST DO IT . If u think u can do,U CAN DO IT". Miss you Dominique and lovely guys!!!!! P.A.B, Nha Trang TTC, June 2013


A million thanks for you Dominique !You are a great teacher ..unortodox too. !!!! Yes the course was intense in many ways.. hard on my body at times.. but we learned a hell of a lot ! I had a great experience learning so many facinating aspects of yoga practice, the indian history , the philosophy, breathing and more. You brought to the course a new dimension that may be if it had been another teacher would not have been. You have your very unique ways.!!!!!! . that for me made the whole difference ..I have a new understànding and appreciation of my body, its complexity and also a new outlook on life itself … F.D. Nha Trang TTC, June 2013.


I am sitting in a cafe preparing for my class and having my first coffee since the course began and I just realized how much I have learned from you and it became clear that I will never be able to teach the way I did before… Thank you for your lecture on Ahimsa. It was one of the most profound lessons… I am proud to be your student… I had watched this clip a while ago … and it certainly reminded me the most significant modification you did with Surya Namaskar B. What I have learned from you is immense and has influenced many aspects of my teaching and practice. Thank you again! TTK, TTC Shanghai, Sept. 2012


 I want to thank you for who you are and your enthusiastic teaching … The course is hard but I like it and I like your opinions of teaching method. After this course, I’ll try to put what I’ve learned into practice more and more and try to ‘bring my personality on the mat’ (I like this statement). Once again thank you for all! Your student P.T.C Hanoi, Nov. 2012


"Todavia proceso el curso fue transformador, soy una mujer mas grande despues de eso, todas las cosas empezaron a moverse en perfecta sincronia, hay mucho que todavia se esta revelando. Gracias por cruzarte en mi camino, admiro tu fuerza y voluntad, muy inspirador, Gracias. C.M.R. Santiago de Chile, May 2012 "

"Thank you. In just one week [on the 1st week, we review all the important elements of the 200 hr TTC] I've learned more in all topics than in the whole 200-hour TTC I attended in Thailand." P.R. Switzerland; 300 hr TTC - Rishikesh, India, Feb-March 2012

I'd like to thank you again for your marvellous instructions. I'm deeply impressed by the materials you teach and the way you teach them. While so many people nowadays teach yoga as a fashion, you teach yoga as a truth. You really taught me a lot, although I'm not a student. Your teachings will always be a treasure in my life practice. ZXC, Shenzhen September 2011


For anybody looking for an amazing Vinyasa flow teacher training program, with a beautiful teacher who lives and breathes the path, this one is for you. Forever grateful to Yogayantra Dominique Renucci for the skills she has taught me in becoming a better person and a more effective teacher. BM (from Australia)


"That in whom reside all beings and who resides in all beings, who is the giver of grace to all, the Supreme Soul of the universe, the limitless being --I am That." Amritbindu Upanishad


You're a really great teacher and I'm grateful that I've been able to study under and practice with you over the past year and a half. You're a great friend as well... R.W Shanghai, March 2011


I discover yoga 7 years ago, to understand better what is Yoga about and what is really beyond, was from the 200ttc I took with my favorite yoga teacher Dominique Renucci on year 2007. Although I took a 500ttc later on with another famous school, and met a lot of great yoga teachers later on my yoga journey but no one could give the same impression as Dominique for Yoga. Yoga becomes part of my life now, the juicy and benefits I had with daily practice changed my physical condition as well as mental. What is really inspiring my self practice and teaching methodology is the 200TTC with Dominique. An immense treasury of knowledge and experiences I received and learned from her continual guide me on the yoga path. Jacquie H. Shanghai/Paris


The knowledge and inspiration you have given me will never fade. You have changed me in ways that are continually revealing themselves. Thanks for all your emotional support last week. M.T. Nepal Oct. 2010

I loved your classes and taking treks with you. I wish I had more time getting to know you. T.F. Nepal Oct. 2010


You have a unique teaching style, that's for sure! I must say that each and every single asana class was a different and new experience for me and I think you shared a monumental gift with wonderfully eternal qualities —knowledge. One this I'll keep with me forever: "Do eet! Do eet!" Giving the class encouragement… Thank you for the loving pushes. L.L. Nepal Oct.2010


I want to thank you very sincerely for sharing with us your experience, energy, passion and stories last weeks… very grateful to have received such generous gifts. A.A. Nepal Oct. 2010


I have learned so much from you over the past 4 weeks. I feel I've know you much longer! Thank you for believing that I could open my hamstrings. B.C. Nepal Oct. 2010


Thank you for all your hard work and for all the wonderful times! You are an inspiration to me & to so many others. Thank you for being yourself, you are a tough cookie & I can only hope to one day be as graceful, honest, and as sexy in hanumanasana as you are... G.S. Nepal Oct. 2010


I cannot believe my good fortune for having spent the last 4 weeks ??? up your offering of knowledge, support and encouragement. Thank you for your generosity, I am so excited to share the things that you have taught me and to hopefully change some lives like you have enriched mine!! I will also remember our adventures on weekends. But most of all, I will know to just "DO IT!" D.K Nepal Oct. 2010


Para mi, eres mi maestra!... he tomado clases con muchos, pero de ti, siento que he aprendido lo mejor del yoga y trato de transmitírselo a mis alumnos... espero tenerte luego en Chile. M-F. B. Shanghai Dec. 2008


Words cannot express how blessed I feel to have had the opportunity to learn from you. You are truly inspiring. B.M, Nepal Oct 2010


You are truly amazing, inspiring, fun, creative, flexible-ha, ha person. I feel so blessed to have been able to learn from you these past four weeks. Some people you meet in life leave an impression on you forever —you are that to me… J.P. Nepal Oct 2010


It was such an honour and a priviledge to have met you, even more so being one of your students. I can't tell you enough how much I enjoyed your asanas and your lectures… I hope to be such an inspiration to others as you have been to me… And because of you I will never be afraid to try new experiences. "Do it." G.D. Nepal Oct 2010


... I hope you enjoyed teaching us. (I did enjoy teaching this beautiful group of people who did not know each other at the beginning of the course, but became so united in the end) July 2010 Hanoi, Vietnam


Thanks for your inspirational leadership. I am brimming with new knowledge and an energetic enthusiasm for life. Your teaching will have a life long positive impact... TLJ, July 2010 Hanoi, Vietnam


Thank you. I'm glad that I had this great opportunity to deepen my knowledge in every aspect of Yoga. This course gave me actually an idea what to do in my future. Thanks for being our teacher and mentor... YH, July 2010 Hanoi, Vietnam


You are my first and great teacher. I've learnt a lot from this course, not only yoga but also the way to face with challendes. It's my luch to decide to take this course. Send my love to your cats. TNT. July 2010, Hanoi, Vietnam


I'm grateful that I finally got to study and practice with you. thanks for all the energy you put into our course and for all the information on nutrition ande health you brought in with you. I'm sure I'll see you again sometime soon. Looking forward to it... RW, July 2010 Hanoi, Vietnam


Thanks for believing in me too. Your teaching was clear and straight to the point, and I could use everything to help others now.


Thank you so much, Dominique. I was quite new to yoga (or even daily physical exercise), ....


Thank you for sharing your experience... I like it when I can tell my students that my hamstrings were like theirs when I started practicing yoga 2 months ago, and when they saw the improvement in my body, it gives them hope. It's like a sinner converted. When a saint preaches, it's less convincing, naturally.


I think that I trusted to take the course with you because in your website you said that you had all those broken bones and still could get your body back. I liked it, that you knew what it's like to have had injuries. I could trust that you'd know how to work with a not-so-perfect body... It might sound funny but it is true I couldn't trust someone who wouldn't know what it is to have had injuries and pain. Peace and Love, Noi. August 2009


I am getting back into yoga after foot surgery, and I find myself referencing your techniques quite often. I just wanted to email you and let you know how meaningful all your lessons were and how much they stick with me... K Apr 2009 Thank you so much for your great lessons. You are by far the best yoga teacher I have had. Pls let us know when you go to Dubai...V.I. D Dubai, Nov 2008


I feel that I have been really lucky in being initiated to yoga by you. I felt inspired and supported from the person and the teacher. R.N. from Italy, Dec 2007 You are an amazing yoga teacher & I am very happy that I met you in Shanghai. K.P. from Canada, April 2008


亲爱的老师; 你好!很抱歉我前面没看懂你的信.你想知道我们在你的TTC里学到些什么是吗? 太多了,我想告诉你:感谢你把我们领进了瑜伽的大门,是你给我们系统全面地了解了什么是瑜伽?它既是目标也是路径.你让我们了解了瑜伽的历史传承,它的哲学乃至印度的历史.你让我们开始知道该如何练习瑜伽.更重要的是你强烈地震憾了我们:让我接受认同并改变了我的生活方式方法甚至是人生观. 其实你给我们的许多还没消化,但我知道那是一颗种子已在我们的心里,当适当的因缘它就会发芽成熟. 在这是借用一句你曾?shy;在课堂上说过的话:你学到的瑜伽知识不是你个人的,它是属于全人类的,你必需将你所学到的都奉献出去.我知道你是这样做的,我想我也会!再一次感谢你!Namaste!

This course has totally changed my view of the outer and inner worlds. Not ot mention it has rewarded me so much physically. The moment I finished the course was my first step to my pursuit of a spiritual path, which will be life-long. I always feel I owe sincere gratitude to my beloved master Dominique. I think the best way can be a never ending practice, both physically and spiritually. J. L. TTC Shanghai, 2006


非常荣幸参加了这次的yttc培训,让我有机会成为老师的学生。我非常爱我的老师,不仅是她有着渊博的知识,更是因为她有高尚的人格。期间老师将她三十多年来积累的宝贵?shy;验 毫无保留的传授给我们,让我更清晰的认识了瑜伽这门科学,并帮助我建立了今后在瑜伽方面继续学习的方向。老师在教学上严谨认真,同是又鼓励我们突破和创 造。从老师身上我不仅学到了瑜伽的哲学知识,精确的体位要领,还学到了做为一位瑜伽老师应改如何去面对自己的学生。所有课程的安排非常合理而且有趣,以至 于让我不舍得毕业的日子到来。跟这么好的老师学习200小时,我觉得远远不够,有机会我还会再参加老师的培训,我也想告诉大家:不要错过跟这么好的老师学习的机会,这是可遇不可求的!再次感谢我的老师!NLJ, TTC Shanghai, 2006


Hi Dominique, Arrived safely in UK this morning. Thank you for making my holiday very special, for your warmth, beautiful spirit and wisdom. I miss you all. Anil J. January 2005 retreat in Siem Reap


I feel quite different in my outlook on yoga now than when I left. I really enjoyed the integration of asana, pranayama and meditation in the retreat. I have not had such a complete presentation of yoga before, and I feel much richer for it. My practice has totally changed since the retreat—my body has opened in ways it never has before: I’m discovering new ways to do many poses that use muscles that feel as though they have never been used. My old tight spots?shy; are ripe for opening. Also, I feel my teaching has improved, and I know E. and P. feel the same. We all gained a lot from the course. Isabelle S. Siem Reap January 2005


I really enjoyed the workshop, thanks for all your hard work! Joel M. Siem Reap January 2005.


I do miss you and your way of teaching Yoga. I was really inspired by your teaching style. It's really sad to hear that you will be leaving BKK. I am now in Taipei and will be back to BKK next week. Wish that I can grasp the last opportunity of learning Yoga from you." Leon C.


Thank you I really enjoyed your classes and meeting you! Makima B.


Thank you for an inspiring encounter and for sharing your talent, experience and knowledge. Your teaching is a gift. Sue P.


Basically she lives and breathes yoga. Rachael M.

Published in October 2004 in Cross-Culture magazine.
“Dominique has been living in Asia for years, combining her 2 passions: travel and yoga. Thirty three years ago, she flew over a car in a motorcycle accident, leading to years of paralysis, pain and medical treatments. Today, at 52, a mother of 2 and grandmother of 4, she has the muscle tone and the strength of a woman half her age. Take a yoga class from her, and you quickly realise her class is not about relaxation and chanting. It's about conditioning muscles through hard, sweaty work.


It all started in 1991, when Dominique took a holiday to Nepal. “In the taxi between the airport and the city-center, something happened inside of me. I knew I was going to leave all I had, and change my life in an absolute way,” says Dominique. “It was not something like a flash, it was a deep and quiet feeling.” “At the end of my holiday, I went back to France, resigned, and told everyone –husband, and children- that I was no longer going to stay in France. I planned to leave everything. Only my children believed me.”


Dominique travelled to Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Nepal, India, Pakistan, China, Mongolia, Myanmar, Cambodia, and lived in some of these countries. “I lived on my savings for a while, with the lowest budget in the world, indifferent to comfort. You get used to it. You learn how to relax in packed Indian buses on bumpy roads. You learn to ignore the uproar in the streets, in guesthouses. You learn to drink any water without being sick. You learn to spend days without being able to wash, resisting the temptation to scratch. Your body accepts more and more things. Then life becomes living spirituality, and instead of meditating on a cushion, you meditate everywhere.”


Dominique had practiced yoga on and off for 16 years. It was in India that yoga became an integral part of her life. She attended both traditional and teacher-intensive retreats. “I was soon able to keep the discipline and practice wherever I was, from guesthouses to dormitories for backpackers.” Again and again, Dominique returned to Nepal to renew her India visa. “What I got in India was the spiritual life: it’s omnipresent like nowhere else in the world. But for the teaching skills, the precision of the postures, the anatomy studies, there is nothing like the Western schools.”


Dominique currently teaches in Shanghai. “It’s only when I got to Asia by chance that it all became clear. I know now that I can’t settle for long. I can’t work in an office; I can’t have a family life. I’m a nomadic yoga teacher, that’s all.”


Dominique is a yoga teacher, she is also a woman with husbands, children, homes, jobs. Her path is sometimes littered with loneliness, mishap and illness. She uncovered a force within beyond postures, beyond travel, to self-awareness, spirituality, and life-purpose. She reminds us of all the possibilities –to pursue our dreams, our desires, our hopes.”
By Shurna Robbins, a freelance writer. www.shurna.com


The highlight of our trip to Thailand was yourself and your knowledge. We really appreciate everything you have done for us. Your instruction and motivation has been a highlight for us at ... We hope to be able to learn from you some time again. Donna & Tim L.


I really enjoy your class very much. I have gained so much from your class and begin to like yoga now. With your departure from Thailand, it is a sad news. But, I pray that maybe one day soon you will return to Bangkok and set up your own Yoga school. And you can surely count on me as one of your faithful student. Eugene S.


I and David continue to practice pranayama and appreciate very much what we learnt from you in?shy; and from your emails. We... look forward to meeting you again.” Freeda & David A.


I do miss you and your way of teaching Yoga. I was really inspired by your teaching style. It's really sad to hear that you will be leaving BKK. I am now in Taipei and will be back to BKK next week. Wish that I can grasp the last opportunity of learning Yoga from you. Leon C. Taiwan


Thank you very much for a wonderful yoga-experience! For us beginners, your lessons gave an extra kick and motivation to continue our efforts. Already those few days gave, according to our feeling, great results. Lena O. Moskow.


Thank you I really enjoyed your classes and meeting you! Makima B. Portugal
