SUPER YOGIS KIDS CLASS
Rina Jakubowicz designed the Super Yogis Kids classes as a place for kids to get together and share similar issues. We explore how to be more peaceful and grounded with practical life skills taught in the ancient teachings of yoga like Vedanta and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The kids are given healthy tools that help them feel good in their bodies and with their emotions. The classes are meant to help decrease their anxiety in addition to helping them cope with certain negative emotions that they might otherwise turn to bullying, acting out or any other unhealthy scapegoat. Giving them an open forum to be fully & completely themselves without “fixing” them or making them have to be “perfect” has proven to bring them a breath of fresh air and help them be their true age… of silliness, fun and ful of energy. For Rina, it has been a blessing to give them that opportunity – one she wishes she had in school herself. The classes consist of a theme, breathing exercises, poses, games, activities, adventures, meditations and relaxation.
All learning is based on fun, feeling empowered and being uplifted!

“I am so excited to have created a learning environment that I would’ve liked to have gone to when I was that age. And now that I have the yoga background I can teach kids some of these life lessons, but in a fun and supportive environment. Really empowering them to live life in a way that serves them and others mutually.”

Testimonials for Super Yogis’ Schoolhouse
Check out a mom blogger’s blogpost about Super Yogis’ Schoolhouse here.
“The first time Rina met my youngest son Jordan, who is an infant, I really could not hold my tears because his reaction to just hearing her voice made my heart happy. He would just look at her and smile. I’ve always felt that children are so innocent and genuine and my boys are totally drawn to her. My oldest son, he’s 6, loves Rina- he’s always interested in learning about my “cool yoga moves” which inevitably gets him involved. It’s a win/win for me, I get to practice with my boys and he stays active! He’s even “OMMM” with me before. I cannot explain the gratitude I have for Rina and all that I’ve learned from her and now being able to pass along to my kids is truly a special gift.”
As a child psychologist, a Rina Yoga student, a mother, and a longtime friend of Rina, I wanted to write this testimonial to express my admiration and support for Rina Jakubowicz’ Superyogis’ Schoolhouse. It is our job as parents, caregivers, and educators to preserve in children what they are born into this world already knowing; that true joy and well-being comes from the synchronicity of the mind and body. A child whose mental, emotional, and physical states are in harmony is able navigate their personal, social, academic, and spiritual world with grace and confidence. Rina’s Super Yogis’ Schoolhouse provides children with all the tools necessary to obtain this harmony and instills in children a lifelong appreciate for self and others as well as vital tools for self-regulation. It is a true blessing that she is providing this service for our community and I cannot wait to send my own son there. The benefits of attending her school are endless and the lessons learned can help reduce aggression, bullying, emotional disorders, poor self-esteem, and behavioral problems. Thank you Rina for making the world a better place through your dedication to our children.”
