❝ 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


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

Kind Karma® Yoga is a heart centered, midline integrated and high vibrational yoga.  This style of yoga incorporates heart-based practices, powerful core techniques and high vibrational Rahini Yoga® Kriyas that promote healing and personal empowerment.

We have been professionally offering yoga and meditation training certification programs since 2001.  We believe learning to teach yoga can be educational, inspirational and joyful.​  It's our belief yoga should be taught in an encouraging environment that fosters confidence and the necessary skills 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, Mississippi, North Carolina, Norway, South Carolina, Ohio, New York and Long Island.

We are looking forward to meeting you, and spending some time sharing the love of yoga!
