Module 1: "Self-Discovery"

"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

Namaste. We have been professionally offering yoga and meditation teacher certification since 2001, for 20 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 Kind Karma® Yoga, 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 and Midline Integrated Yoga. This style of yoga incorporates heart-based practices, powerful core techniques and Rahini Yoga® Karma Healing Kriyas that promote self-care, self healing and personal empowerment.

Our Kind Karma® Yoga School Motto: "Motivate, Empower, Inspire" (Měi: Beauty).

Module 1 Offers:

"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

Gong & Sound Training (GST) 

Sound Basics: Introduction. Explores using sound for the yin environment and  self-healing.

"Yin Yoga uses gentle long held 'shapes' (postures) with a compassionate attitude of self-acceptance to awaken the 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 through the energy channels of our deep Yin core."
