Kind Karma® Yoga 200 Hour Training

Yoga Alliance Registered School


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 Kriyas that promote healing and personal empowerment.

We have been professionally offering yoga and meditation teacher certification since 2001. We believe learning to teach yoga can be educational, inspirational and joyful.​  It's our belief yoga should be taught in a professional, encouraging environment that offers the necessary skillset and confidence 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.

Our School Aim is: "Motivate, Empower & Inspire" (Měi: Beauty).
