❝ The beauty of Kind Karma® Yoga is that its openness comes from the heart;
therefore, it's for everyone - no one is excluded. ❞ – Dean Telano
Welcome to the School of Kind Karma® Kids Yoga
Kind Karma® Yoga is a heart centered, midline integrated and high vibrational yoga. This style of yoga incorporates heart-based practices, powerful core techniques and high vibrational Rahini Yoga® Kriyas that promote healing and personal empowerment.
We have been professionally offering yoga and meditation training certification programs since 2001. We believe learning to teach yoga can be educational, inspirational and joyful. It's our belief yoga should be taught in an encouraging environment that fosters confidence and the necessary skills to teach and share yoga.
