About Ariana Rabinovitch

I've acquired many yoga and movement science certifications in order to get a modern understanding of the body and how we move. I started the Yoga & Beyond podcast and co-authored the Exposing Yoga Myths book series in order to share that perspective. Turns out there's a large audience hungry for this kind of information! YMR is the next step in that process of bringing modern science to yoga education. I also teach group classes, private sessions, and lead continuing education workshops for movement professionals. I have a straight-forward (no BS) approach that combines yoga with other movement disciplines to help clients be strong, restore mobility and feel energized. Rather than the typical fast and furious yoga "workout", I emphasize mindful and practical strength in movement. Learn more about Ariana.
