“When I met Renee for the first time I had been struggling with an autoimmune disorder and suffered constant stomach aches. Since I started seeing Renee for Reiki, yoga, and nutritional counseling I feel much better. Renee helped and still is helping me understand and resolve the complicated relationship I have with food and my body. When I first came, although willing to listen, I was skeptical of the effectiveness of Renee’s holistic methods but seeing and feeling them work I became a true believer. I am very grateful for all the support I have been getting and I know I found the right person and the help I have been searching for years.”
“I have been going to Renee for over a year now. At first it was difficult to confide in someone and relinquish food as my comfort source. Renee has shown me, through her compassion and sensitivity , that it was safe for me to actually feel good and want to take care of myself. She has guided me nutritionally so that the weight and inflammation in my body have subsided and this has allowed me to have greater mobility and health. Renee’s knowledge of nutrition is just the tip of the iceberg. Her healing energy and spiritual sessions have been powerful and healing. Treating the source and not just the symptoms, has given me a positive outlook for the future. Thank you Renee.”

“I was referred to Renee by my primary care doctor several months ago, during an annual physical. He’d asked me about my thoughts on my weight, as I am over a healthy weight, even though I have no weight related issues yet. I told him I was ready to lose the weight for good and he suggested I contact Renee, a nutritionist that he highly recommended. He said she was very food at what she did and was confident hat she could help me reach my goals.
I have been working with Renee for 6 months now. I was immediately struck by how intuitive she is, and I really appreciate her holistic approach. I didn’t just find a brilliant nutritionist, I also found an amazing yoga teacher and healer. Renee has integrated all three into a comprehensive health plan for me. Her clarity, gentleness, and vision for my wellness assured me that I am with a true healer. My overall health has never been better! I have a way to go with my weight, but I know I am where I need to be with Renee. She always accepts me for who I am, and is always encouraging. Renee is also highly intuitive and has surprised me a few times with just the right intervention, at just the right time, without me having to say anything.
Her nutritional assessment and testing alerted me to previously unknown causes of severe GI symptoms. She remedied these though an elimination diet, supplements, and pretty soon a cleanse. I have seen an improved mood as well.
The yoga addition to my care plan with Renee was a wonderful surprise. I did not know that Renee offered this until the second or third time I saw her. When I told her I had always wanted to try yoga, but was intimidated by my size, she assured me that yoga is for everyone. Yoga with Renee has been life changing for me. I am much more centered and grounded, and feel so much more comfortable in my body. I have suffered from PTSD most of my adult life. Practicing yoga has allowed me to reconnect with myself in a profound and moving way. Yoga allows me to be in the present moment, even when challenging emotional issues come up. Renee’s gently guidance and encouragement throughout our session together have shown me how powerful and beautiful my body can be.”

Programs and Classes
“Renee has given me tremendous support and a highly advanced health education. Anyone wanting to be on the path toward lifelong well- being should either take her course or see her privately. I plan on doing both”.
– Kathleen O., NY
“Renee’s class, 6 Weeks to Weight Loss and Better Health is just what I needed to get motivated. She has taught me how to eat sensibly for weight loss while increasing my energy level”
– Dorie E, NY
“I have taken Renee Simon’s Weight loss program and I have had success on 2 levels. I learned about whole foods, foods free of chemicals, antibiotics and additives and how these foods affect body metabolism, energy, moods and our health in general. Without an understanding of the role that foods have on our bodies when processed with additives, hormones, steroids and chemicals, it only becomes a diet; just another diet to feel restricted and resentful about. This did not happen to me. I have enjoyed the ability to understand why I am now eating foods that are whole (without the above ingredients), I have tried the sample recipes that are tasteful, enjoyable and filling because the day is complete with 3 meals and healthy snacks. I have learned to eat differently because I have been given different strategies to change bad habits that inhibit the body’s ability to burn fat and metabolize properly. Most of all, I feel energetic, healthy, I’ve lost weight and fit into my clothes differently.”
– DK, NY
“Attempting to get pregnant in your forties can be challenging. I consulted with Renee on nutrition and exercise in order to get my body in the best shape possible. I believe her knowledge of supplements to promote fertility really gave me an edge. I’m six and a half months pregnant. I would recommend Renee to anyone who wants to feel stronger and have more energy.”
– Susan T., NY
“Meeting Renee Simon has changed my life for the better in every way you possible can! I was at a time in my life where every environmental factor that could possibly affect my life was! I had recently moved, left my teaching position, lost my dear mother-in-law, gained an annoying 10 lbs., and had officially hit my mid-40’s! If that isn’t enough to create chaos with your body, I don’t know what it! After attending an informational workshop that Reneee conducted, I entered a three week detoxification program. The program included all the nutritional supplements, healthy menu’s and weekly group support sessions. This detoxification program cleansed my body, cured my “gut” ailment, and empowered me with ways to reduce my stress AND didn’t require a large time commitment. I continued on in one on one sessions with Renee to address each health area individually and allow me to sustain the progress I’d made in the detox program. My body is now used to eating more healthily, and by incorporating the supplements I needed to insure optimum health, I am definetly on the right path. Another benefit from the program with Renee is that my whole family is more in tune with healthier living and that makes the maintenace a lot easier with everyone on board. It’s not too late to make another New Year’s resolution and begin living a healthier lifestyle. Don’t wait to begin- there’s always an excuse-but your health has to be your number #1 priority! You will feel stronger and more able to cope with life’s everyday stresses and then EVERYONE wins- Good luck, you’re not alone!”

“About 18 months ago I hit that place that I needed to get my eating under control or buy bigger clothes. About the same time, I received an e-mail from Renee Simon offering a weight loss class. I have known Renee for about 20 years, and watched her holistic approach to health and wellness grow and deepen, and have called upon her expertise in a variety of ways. I decided to take advantage of the serendipitous offering and joined her group.
One of the things I have always valued in working with Renee is how she approaches each client, each situation, individually and from the heart; while she may have an outline, she tailors things to best work with each person. In this group, she provided food samplings, recipes and phone calls of support. I did not find it difficult to follow her program, which included increasing activity, and in fact was quite pleased that by eating consciously during a particularly social month, which included a glass of wine with meals out, I was still able to lose about eight pounds of the total of 12 I lost. Not only did my clothes fit better, some even became loose.
On a subsequent visit with my doctor, he commended me on my weight loss, asked what I had done and told me to keep doing it. On the couple of occasions when a couple of pounds crept back on, I recalled Renee’s tutelage, ate more consciously again, I have been able to maintain the weight loss.”

“I have been practicing many forms of yoga over the past 40 years and Renee’s rejuvenation yoga classes are perfect for me at this stage of my life.
Magic happens in my private yoga sessions with Renee. She crafts each session with care and skill, based upon my physical, emotional and mental needs of that day. Within the safe container of her intimate yoga studio, Renee leads me in pranayama and asana created especially for moving my energy. Afterwards, the alchemy continues, with 20 minutes or so of light energy work to further shift and integrate what the yoga practice initiated. I always leave feeling both more grounded and highly balanced. I look forward to continuing my yoga journey with Renee as my able guide.”- E.K.
“I am relatively new to yoga. About a year ago, I took a class with Renee and after two or three sessions I knew this teacher was different. Renee is warm and welcoming; a newcomer never feels awkward. She encourages you to try with purpose and intention but also to listen to your body and do what is best for you. In class, she manages to keep the group going smoothly while at the same time giving individual attention, gently helping each person improve their movements and postures.
After enjoying class for a few months, I knew I wanted to explore yoga more deeply. I decided to try private sessions with Renee, and like my earlier experience, I found this to be a good decision. An hour of individual work with Renee is physically and mentally challenging, invigorating, relaxing and at the same time, the focus on breath and emptying yourself out to connect to a wider energy is akin to a one hour vacation from the world. I have gained strength and improved flexibility and balance. I still have a long way to go, but I am looking forward to the journey with Renee knowing that she will encourage me but also make sure that I am making this my own practice.”
“Renee creates a nurturing and healing cocoon in her restorative yoga classes. Every detail was handled from the candle light ambiance to having two helpers making sure we were comfortable in the poses. I was able to let go and find true peace.”
Renee’s Reiki healing work has helped me to overcome challenging physical problems and greatly relieve my stress. I feel very blessed to have found Renee and look forward to our sessions together. They are a critical part of my self-care and overall well-being.

“I’ve seen Renee for her nutrition counseling. She is very thorough and professional and was able to zero in on my needs and offer clear recommendations that have been very helpful for me. She also introduced me to a 3 week cleanse which was very helpful as well in not only helping me feel more energy but also identify a food I was sensitive to. I would highly recommend her.”
– Michael R, NY
“I’ve worked with many therapists and health practitioners before, but after working with Renee I feel happy for the first time in a very long time.”
– L.C., NY
“I have been a patient/client of Renee Simon for the past 3 years. In those years, Renee has been instrumental in not only weight control but sensible eating and maximizing my body’s efficiency to be as healthy as possible. Her caring, supportive, and compassionate manner has only underscored those qualities. During these years Renee,also, has also helped prepare me for several surgeries I had to endure. It was the post-surgery care that she administered, through vitamins,and body-repairing shakes that help me to heal much to my Doctor’s satisfaction. Renee is very knowledgeable, thoughtful and is always laser focused on her client/patient.”
– Bill W., NY
“Renee was excellent and gave me valuable nutritional advice. She had a powerpoint ready as well as several handouts that were specific to my athletic goals. She was super kind and answered all of my questions and concerns and followed up with me providing even more information. I will continue to work with Renee as she comes highly recommended to anyone looking to improve their health and wellness.”

“On April 16, 2016, I was fortunate enough to experience Renee’s first class in Total Wellness Reiki. As a Reiki Master Teacher, she is well-qualified to bring her gifts and skills and experience to this new endeavor. It is certainly a great new addition to the many Wellness, Yoga, Goddess, Nutrition and Reiki Healing offerings she brings to her many satisfied clients.
During a four hour session that seemed to fly by, Renee followed an agenda that she had carefully planned. Our group of five students began gently by getting to know each other in a seated circle and briefly describing our interests in Reiki and what we hoped to learn. Then Renee took us through an intriguing and well-organized presentation about the history and principles of Reiki and the details of how Reiki is related to the anatomy of the body and our energy chakras.
In particular, Renee taught us that Reiki is not something that is “done” to us or to her, but rather that it is a facilitation of the flow of the universal healing energy all around us to our individual selves for our own enhanced well-being. There was plenty of time for questions and discussion.
Following this introductory portion, we moved on to hands-on learning.
Reiki is a gentle, simple, hands-on but non-invasive method of facilitating an energy flow in and out of our bodies. We learned the various affirmations and hand positions that we could use on our own bodies for self-healing and then we had a fun and easy-going time of practicing on each other. Finally, we shared some of our thoughts and reactions, reflecting on our personal responses and feelings about what we had experienced.
Renee is an excellent teacher, intuitive and skilled. I felt great after the class, relaxed and eager to pursue Reiki further as a tool in my wellness journey. Renee has been a significant part of that journey as I have received nutritional guidance and have practiced yoga with her for many months. She is a wonderful yogi, as well as a Reiki Master.Get in touch with Renee, give it a try!”

“Renee really created a good energy space for our small class of 4. I felt the size of the class was just right and we all flowed well together. The review of Reiki history and the 7 Chakras provided a good beginning and the materials for reading later were very helpful.
I’m very glad I was guided to Renee’s class. I’m still within the first 21 days of doing self Reiki and can sense a positive change in my day-to-day living and have also been able to alleviate some musculoskeletal pains.
I look forward to keeping Reiki in my life and participating in future offerings with Renee Simon.”
– Kate F, NY
“I always look forward to my time with Renee Simon. Her yoga classes are the perfect way to end a busy day. She combines great stretches with gentle flows, and I always feel so rejuvenated after her classes. And as an added bonus, she does a mini Reiki healing with each class member during our relaxation at the end of class! Perfect!
Ive also been privileged to have several energy healing sessions with Renee. She works very broadly, with the emotional, spiritual and physical levels. Her treatments are very relaxing and her love and support is so evident in all the work she does.”
