Each one of these endorsements has special meaning for me. In my personal yoga philosophy journey these people have played profound roles: asking me to go deeper, giving me challenging questions, helping me find answers, and inspiring me to search. The lovely people below are leaders in their respective fields, and I am honored that they not only took the time to read my book, but also share their support. Thank you to each one from the bottom of my heart.
“The world needs more yoga, but not just the physical practice! In my own experience with the philosophy of yoga I have found that the lessons of acceptance, forgiveness, and nonviolence have profound effects on my life off the mat. When students dive into this material they will find that their beloved yoga has more to offer than physical fitness. Rina makes these connections understandable, relatable and fun. This book is the perfect introduction for beginners, in addition to a simple new way to look at these ancient teachings for more “experienced” yogis!”
Seane Corn – Yoga Teacher and Co Founder of Off the Mat, Into the World
“Like Rina herself, this beautiful and approachable exploration of yoga is full of positive energy, dynamic creative expression, and deep and practical wisdom offered with love. For those just beginning their heroic yoga journey and anyone looking for an inspiring everyday handbook on the practical application of yoga in real life, Rina offers a fresh and needed voice to uplift and encourage. The pathway to real transformation lies within; thanks to Rina, it is now made accessible to all.”
David Lipsius, President & CEO of Yoga Alliance and Yoga Alliance Foundation
“Yoga has power beyond the physical practice, but it can be difficult to share all the philosophy in the limited time we have on the mat. Rina’s book not only explains this power in simple terms, but is also fun to read! Rina is a great person who lives yoga on and off the mat. This book is the missing piece for beginners and seasoned practitioners alike to deepen their practice through exploration of yoga’s foundation.
Kim Paulsen, General Manager of Yoga Journal
“Rina is an amazing teacher and has the gift of explaining things in simple, fun and yet very profound ways. She teaches from her heart and you will feel that connection when you learn with her about the philosophy behind this physical practice that can be a life-changer and will empower you in all areas of your life!”
Marco Antonio Regil, TV Host / Public Speaker
“Rina’s down-to-earth style of writing and practical approach offers a fresh and playful energy to the often misunderstood and abstract topic of yoga philosophy.”
Nicolai Bachman, Sanskrit Scholar
“Before this I did not believe it possible to laugh, learn and then live yoga from reading one book. Rina brilliantly demystifies the subject so that anyone can thoroughly understand the ABC’s of yoga. Essential Yoga Philosophy is an epic contribution to the field of yoga saving people countless hours and dollars who want to be educated in the arena without having to “do it all”.
Eric Paskel, Philosopher and Yoga Teacher
“If you’re ready to deepen your yoga practice and move it from the mat into everyday life, Essential Yoga Philosophy, a guidebook of ancient wisdom for the modern-day yogi expertly distilled by author Rina Jakubowicz, will show you how. Approachable, accessible, and comprehensive, this book explores everything from yoga postures to principles and offers thought-provoking exercises that will lead you to a greater understanding of yoga—and yourself.”
Amy Weiss, author of Crescendo
“Rina’s book gives a new approach to your yoga practice. One that includes soul, intellect and body all in harmony and unity through an inner journey to connect with yourself and others.”
