I am taking a break from teaching weekly classes. I still teach here and there in the community (see calendar below). I work in partnership with many agencies around town, such as the Public Library and the University of Michigan (various departments), to offer occasional classes that are often free or affordable. I am available to teach as a consultant to your business or organization, as well! I have experience with nearly every age group, and especially enjoy working with adolescents and young adults.
Check out comments from some of my students:
I took Raina’s yoga class for over a year and loved every minute of it! Raina has a great way of intertwining the physical and spiritual side of yoga. I learned so much about my body and yoga principles. Raina is inspiring, creative and even brings humor into her classes. I just love her teaching style! – Erica, Ann Arbor
Raina’s classes were my first introduction to yoga, and I’m so grateful to her for encouraging me to continue my practice. She always provides a welcoming environment for all levels and bodies. Her instruction gracefully balances teaching the physical aspects, incorporating emotional and spiritual elements, and acknowledging the social-political context in which we practice. – Blake, Detroit
Raina treats each class like a family, creating an almost instant sense of community. She is invested in the holistic wellbeing of each student, whether they attend one of her classes, or are a weekly regular. Raina’s classes are intentionally accessible to folks with intersecting identities. She makes yoga truly “for the people.” – Meagan, Ann Arbor
Raina is the kind of teacher who truly cares about each of her students and shows it in every interaction. She creates a warm, inclusive environment in her classes and provides a beautiful combination of insight, expertise, and vulnerability in her teachings. Her inversion/arm balance workshop managed to be both informative and playful. Raina is an absolutely lovely instructor and human being! – Emma, Ann Arbor
