Yoga, Life, and Happiness
with Rina Jakubowicz, E-RYT 500
March 2 - 4, 2018
We each hold the formula to a successful, joy-filled life—we just need to learn how to access it! Join Rina Jakubowicz for a workshop designed to help you find happiness in life through Yoga. Tap into your truth during an inspiring program that will help you learn tools to keep your mind, body, and intellect centered and grounded through all walks of life.
In this program, you will learn:
- Practical tools you can use on a daily basis to combat difficult moments
- Ways to increase your energy level and sense of purpose
- Yoga poses practiced in a whole new light, with an awareness to keep you inspired and practicing even after you return home
- Accessible Yoga terminology to make your life simpler and clearer
- The power of community and friendship as we come together and grow, both individually and as a group
Over the course of the program, we will shed positive light on the journey within yourself and on your mat. This is an exhilarating, life-changing experience that will help you create a personal plan to live the life you’ve always imagined for yourself.
Break down the walls and barriers that keep you from feeling genuinely happy and at peace—no matter the environment. This workshop is open to everyone (no Yoga experience required) who is looking to evolve with more knowledge and wisdom on their path towards lasting peace and happiness.

Rina Yoga is unique, inspiring, passionate, raw, real, honest, simultaneously grounding and uplifting, challenging on multiple levels but still fun. She is a person/teacher: super friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, very accessible, elegantly down to earth, tough but still fun, demanding but in a sweet, fun, caring way, an engaging speaker, very open, and super observant. Her great sense of humor and frequent laughter and smiles put people immediately at ease. She inspires students to go deeper and really feel/learn what yoga is truly all about, to become it, to live it rather than recite it. Compassionate and understanding. — Elisa
This program is so much more than poses and breathing. Rina puts you face to face with yourself – but what and how much you see is up to you. How close are you willing to look inside? Learning to observe yourself and making mindful choices based on what you see are the first steps in deepening your practice. And this awareness goes way beyond the mat.
You may find yourself looking at the relationships, habits and activities in your life with new eyes. All of sudden you will notice discomfort in the routines that make up your comfort zone. The beautiful thing is at the same time youʼre opening up a fresh and exciting set of possibilities for yourself. Absolutely it is scary. You might be hesitating just reading this. Donʼt! In the words of my fellow student, “Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.” Use this opportunity to go all in. You have the invaluable support of Rina and all of us who have gone down this path.
When you feel yourself pulling away, resisting the changes, remember that obstacles are the surest sign of growth. I once read, “Anxiety is a glimpse of your own daring.” Be bold! Share what is on the tip of your tongue. Ask the question youʼre not asking. There was some longing in your heart for this experience. Honor that longing and commit to exploring with a real sense of curiosity about yourself and your practice. Youʼll be so glad you did. Namaste. — Emma
