Testimonial from Past Teacher Trainee / Current Yoga Teacher: 

You are an endless well of inspiration; a true seeker of the highest ideals, a pillar of mental strength, and yet still a child of the world managing to keep the wonder and silly fun we all lose so early in life. Though you may be small (extremely) in stature, you stand taller than a giant on the back of an enormous elephant perched upon the Himalayans. And you achieve this from the most important place. Within yourself.

Your teacher is lucky to have you as a student. I know I can never live up to the love and dedication Swamiji receives from you. But I will try with my meager abilities and my unending well of service. That is what I have to offer as your mentee and student.

  Thank you for your patience with me in teacher training and giving me the chance to redeem myself. Your grace with my faults are undeserved and I will do my best to keep myself striving to keep within that grace.  
Endlessly at your service, Jordon

Testimonial from Past Teacher Trainee / Current Yoga Teacher: 

Many years have passed since I took the Teacher Training with Rina Yoga, and I said it that moment and I keep repeating it; it was one of the best decisions I have made in my life.
Yoga is part of me, yoga gave me my voice.
I say it gave me my voice because I went from being a shy and insecure person to a confident woman in all aspects. Thank you Rina Yoga for being part of my journey.
