Welcome to Kind Karma® Yoga – Yoga of Spiritual Alignment.

Are you drawn to teaching or practicing spiritually-centered yoga? Alternatively, are you interested in exploring a holistic yoga approach that provides a complete practice beyond just physical poses?

If your answer is yes, then Kind Karma® Yoga is your destined path.

What Kind Karma® Yoga is About

𑁍 A holistic style of yoga that not only concerns itself with the physical and philosophical aspects of the practice, but also teaches how to use these aspects to delve deeper into your spiritual self.

𑁍 A style of yoga that incorporates heart-based practices that are designed to open up the heart chakra, promoting emotional balance, mental harmony and high vibration. Heart-based practices that are intended to cultivate a state of mind and a way of being that is aligned with the energy of our heart.

𑁍 An inclusive yoga practice that incorporates Rahini Yoga® Healing Kriyas, in addition to traditional yoga techniques, to clear, align, and strengthen the subtle energy body, especially for humanity’s awakening and higher vibration. 

𑁍 A practice that recognizes sound therapy and Sound Current are integral parts for a holistic approach to yoga, because both of these are powerful tools for promoting wellness and enhancing the benefits of a yoga practice.

If your goal is to teach yoga, you can rest assured that Kind Karma® Yoga will professionally prepare you as our yoga school has been registered with Yoga Alliance since 2001, has four registered yoga schools, and has taught students from all over the world. Furthermore, our yoga training curriculum has been time-tested, as we have certified students in yoga and meditation for over 22 years! If your desire is not to teach, but to deepen your own personal yoga practice then this training would greatly interest you because, unlike many other current yoga programs, Kind Karma® Yoga has bona fide ties with authentic lineages going back hundreds of years, supporting the effectiveness of many of its methods. 

We are looking forward to hearing from you, and spending some time sharing and practicing Kind Karma® Yoga!

Always in Shanti,

❤️Kind Karma® Yoga Team

Course Description

Woman practicing yoga

Kind Karma® Yin Yoga uses gentle long held postures – "shapes," with a compassionate, open-minded attitude of self-acceptance to awaken and free the yin parts of our physical, emotional, energetic, mental and spiritual selves.  Yin Yoga practice is perfect for anyone who wants to bring more freedom, flexibility, mobility or energy to their hips, pelvis, hamstrings, spine and shoulders.  Often, these areas of the body become stiff and less mobile because of aging, old injuries or chronic overuse.

This course, Kind Karma® Yin Yoga Training Essentials: "Listening to your Authentic Self", is intended to provide students with the fundamentals for the development of a professional and safe Yin Yoga practice that is forged with direct experience and training.

This course combines yin yoga with meditation, breathing exercises, and the introduction to healing applications of sound therapy. Many of our yin yoga class sequences tailor the practice to target certain emotions by embracing a meridian-based approach.

"Every session of yin yoga provides a special chance to pay attention to and heed the messages from your emotions, feelings, physical sensations, reactions, and inner voice. In a graceful and profound manner, yin yoga grants you the opportunity to take the time, appreciate the silence, experience stillness, and create space to understand, accept, and ultimately cherish your authentic self." - Dean Telano
