Renata Malinauskas

Body-Centred Therapist, Insight Meditation Teacher, Health Coach, TRE Provider, Trauma Informed

Hi there, I am Renata! I am a Body-Centred Therapist and Health coach, and I am here to support you on your journey towards a balanced, healthy and fulfilling life.

My passion for health and wellbeing have always been an important aspect of my life. Because I started playing sports professionally when I was really young, I have cultivated a healthy lifestyle from a really young age in order to maintain good performance and keep my body healthy and strong. It has been a profound journey of exploring my body, mind and behaviours, and how they are all so connected and affect each other.

After many years exploring my body and mind through physical exercise and behaviours, I started to develop a deep curiosity in how our mind and our consciousness work. In 2013, I started attending to insight meditation retreats and studying Buddhism, in which, since then, it has set the ground for my mediation and contemplative practices, and I continue to practice diligently nowadays.

I truly believe that we all have the potential to find ease and reconnect with our own true nature if are willing to work through the old patterns and parts of ourselves that no longer serves us. This journey, though, is a life long journey, and it requires patience, gentleness and care, along with clear intention.

I am a Hakomi Graduate with a bachelor in Nutrition and Dietetics and I am a certified Fitness instructor, Mindfulness Teacher and TRE provider. I am passionate about empowering people to create balance, ease and resilience in their lives as well as to reconnect with their inner core of safety, ease and truthfulness that lies beneath all the layers of stress, tension and stories we believe ourselves to be.
