Rina Jakubowicz is known for her vibrant and uplifting approach to yoga... both animating and traditional. She is an inspiring international bilingual yoga teacher, Reiki practitioner, motivational speaker, and author. She has been a teacher of teachers for over eleven years, presenting at Kripalu Center, Wanderlust, Yoga Journal Conferences, Himalayan Institute, Omega Institute, as well as in countries across the globe such as Chile, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Andorra. Rina is one of Gaiam TV's featured teachers, the yoga expert on Univision's Tu Desayuno Alegre, and a regular contributing writer for Yoga Journal Online, My Yoga Online, and MindBodyGreen.com.
She is Yoga Journal's March 2015 cover model and can be seen in magazines such as Mantra, Origin, Glam Belleza Latina and Buena Vida. Rina founded and owns a Rina Yoga studio in Miami and she loves taking on new projects and seeing them come to fruition like her pioneering yoga curriculum for children and teens, Super Yogis' Schoolhouse. She's excited to branch out into Los Angeles and connect with the yoga community on the other coast. Her move to LA was inspired by her whole-hearted commitment to be with her partner so it's only a huge bonus that she gets to work with him at Electric Soul Yoga and be part of the beautiful community there.
"Rina's yoga class is full of passion and unique character. She helps students create their own practice and teaches them how to maximize each pose in connection to their body. I've always loved yoga, but after taking Rina's class I've found a much deeper appreciation for my practice - It's become my daily meditation."

“Rina teaches her class to everyone. I am in my late 50s. Definitely not a "Gumby" body type. She assists you to be a better YOU no matter what your shape, size or condition. "Modify if you need to" is her motto.” - Edward Levitt
“Rina is the essence of a yoga instructor. From her unique style of calling the poses, a soothing voice which takes me to a deeper level of concentration, and a rich background knowledge which makes the practice more comfortable and enjoyable. That combined with a loving energy makes her classes an amazing experience!!!”
