Namaste. We have been professionally offering yoga and meditation teacher certification since 2001, for 19 yearsWe 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).

"Yin Yoga poses  - 'shapes' - offers us the present moment to reveal the hidden experiences that 'shaped' us into what we are today. Through this process of self-discovery, Yin Yoga also provides us with the opportunity to 'shape' us into what we want to become, tomorrow."

- Dean Telano, Spiritual Advisor

Program Overview

"Yin Yoga uses gentle long held 'shapes' (postures) with an attitude of compassionate self-acceptance to awaken the more Yin parts of our physical, emotional, and spiritual selves.  Yin Yoga gently releases and lengthens connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, spine and shoulders that may otherwise become stiff and less mobile because of aging, old injuries or chronic overuse.  The seated, supine or prone shapes are designed to increase joint mobility, flexibility and promote the flow of energy (Qi) through the energy channels (meridians) of our deep Yin core."  - Dean Telano
