The Truth About Yoga With Rina

Deepen your practice and your life with this introductory course on the philosophical foundations of yoga.



What is Yoga?

Most students never learn the ancient truths of yoga, but they are the key to achieving the inner peace and happiness promised by its practitioners and ancient sages before us.

The Paths of Yoga

The wisdom of the old masters prescribed three main paths for three different personality types. Discover yours and the path that is right for you.

Who am I?

What's My Purpose?

Finding a purpose is all about making a difference and having the courage to do so. The real teachings of yoga can guide you to it.

“When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.”  - Winnie the Pooh

The beginning of my journey started long before I even knew what yoga was. Looking back, it is clear to me that the seeds were planted when I read “The Tao of Pooh” by Benjamin Hoff and I pondered the profound questions about life in that book. 

"Who am I?", is the one question that sparked my interest in the deeper truths and set me off on the road I continue to travel to this day.  

Have you arrived here on a similar quest? Do you already know that reflection in the mirror isn't really you? Let me guide you in your own journey to the real you.
