A Source of Inspiration for your Soul

New York City Yogi by Way of Beirut: She Found The Courage to Change

Rima Rabbath is one of Jivamukti's top yoga teachers. Attending one of her beautiful classes, you'd never guess the life that brought her to a yoga mat. This week on The Courage to Change with Lisa Kirchner, we bring you her inspiring story.

Rima’s life began in the war-torn city of Beirut. At any given moment she and her family might have to drop everything and hide in an underground shelter, for anywhere from a couple days to a few weeks – literally living each day minute to minute. Growing up this way taught her to make the most of each moment, finding beauty, peace, and joy in the here and now. What she did not foresee is that yoga would enter her life and turn out to be the perfect expression of this belief system.

During this time, Rima was also a competitive tennis player. Today she credits that experience with giving her the understanding of what it means to have a daily practice, and how that consistency leads to a special kind of freedom.

Prior to transitioning into teaching yoga full-time, Rima earned an MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business and worked in corporate marketing at Colgate-Palmolive.
