Namaste. We have been professionally offering yoga and meditation teacher certification since 2001, for 19 years. We believe learning to teach yoga can be educational, inspirational and joyful. It's also our belief that yoga should be taught in a professional and encouraging environment that offers the necessary skillset, confidence and inspiration to teach and share yoga.
Graduates from our Kind Karma® Yoga, Awaken with Meditation and Gong & Sound Training Programs are currently teaching all over the world, including such places as Ecuador, Costa Rica, South Africa, Japan, Canada, California, Colorado, Florida, Maine, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, New York and Long Island.
Kind Karma® Yoga is a Heart-Centered Yoga because it incorporates heart-based practices that promote self healing and self empowerment. This style of yoga awakens our innate creative and healing energies by combining traditional, contemporary and innovative techniques.
Our Kind Karma® Yoga School Motto: "Motivate, Empower, Inspire" (Měi: Beauty).
