Testimonials for The Yoga Mind
‘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!’
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.’
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.’
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

‘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.’
‘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. The Yoga Mind 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.’
