About Renee

Renee Sills is a multidisciplinary artist, author, and educator. The throughline of her work is an ongoing investigation of mindfulness, agency and the adaptive processes of the human body in contemporary landscapes. Compelled by the intersection of embodiment practices (somatics, yoga, dance) and academic discourse surrounding embodiment and identity, Renee began Doing Theory as an effort to bring the two together.

As an artist she works primarily with video, audio, installation and performance. Most of her work is socially engaged and participatory. Learn more about her art practice here.

Renee has been a movement educator for over a decade. She currently teaches nationally and internationally for yoga teacher training programs, contemporary dance workshops and her own yearlong experiential anatomy training for movement artists and professionals. She is the co-founder and co-director of Sola School of Contemplative Arts, a mindfulness-based arts and registered yoga teacher training program in Portland, OR. Learn more about Sola School here.
