"As a long time practitioner of yoga, I take great joy in discovering teachers like Rina who recognize the sacredness of this practice.

Deep bow." - Ryan Seaman, Producer and Writer, Los Angeles

Perfect " - Nina Edmond, Bristol
“No other course or teacher has persuaded me to commit before but Rina’s style seriously over-delivers and exceeds expectation. It is difficult to know how best to describe her as she encapsulates so much but certainly she is a tremendously knowledgable and inspirational source.” - Jessica Fallon, Bath
