Yoga School Testimonials 

Heidi J., Yoga, Meditation Teacher

Joining the yoga programs, has changed my life and well being; physically, emotionally and spiritually, to a positive level I never thought possible. Sukh Shabad’s teachings, guidance and education is abundant, more than what most may receive.  All his students generously receive a tremendous amount of knowledge, along with great compassion and wisdom. My journey is filled with great openness and passion for my arts, allowing me to teach, heal, and guide others to a more positive, joyful and peaceful life.  This is the path Sukh Shabad has guided me on, and I am forever grateful to continue my studies with Sukh Shabad and the Kind Karma Yoga School. Truly a life changing experience.

Penni N., Yoga & Zumba Teacher

As a recent graduate of the yoga training, I can whole-heartedly say I found a RARE GEM. I was searching for a Yoga teacher training program for several years..a flexible program. Since I walked into True Living Yoga Healing Center I have not been the same. The yoga school has given me tools to learn how to deepen my practice, teach with insight, and encourage self-discovery for myself and others. With heightened intuition, gentle guidance and compassion, Dr. Dean Telano shares his own unique and completely unparalleled experience. Dr. Telano invites me to learn more than I thought possible about Yoga and Meditation–I uncover my True Self. I will forever be grateful.. If you seek a comprehensive and authentic Yogic journey, you are in the right place!

Elena G., Realtor, Yoga Teacher

I just want to thank you for the wonderful experience I had. My yoga training to become certified as an instructor was truly the best! I received all of the spiritual and practical knowledge that I need to feel confident and professional as a yoga instructor. Dean is surrounded by his flock of angels (you can feel their presence in the room) and is the most spiritually connected person I have ever met!  When he walks past me and my eyes are closed I can feel his wings.  They must span at least ten feet long, I am not kidding! He is a Master Yogi who teaches with passion, compassion and knowledge. Heidi and the senior teachers were compassionate, professional and caring. We became a family very quickly.  I highly recommend this yoga training for your certification.  It is one of the best choices I ever made. Namaste.

Nicole H, Meditation Teacher

I was first introduced to the studio when a friend saw the flyer for the grand opening and gave it to me. I was welcomed by such positive energy and warm people I new it was going to be the place for me to continue my yoga practice. After practicing in the studio for a year I decided to make the life changing commitment to take the 200 hr Rahini teacher training program. It was the best thing I ever did for my self and the others I have taught and my family. I have experienced many healing meditations and all I can say is wow you should experience one with Dr. Dean  yourself. Again there are no words to express what Dr. Dean has to offer, as I can feel the healing within. The yoga and meditation programs is above and beyond the best!

Lauren M., Yoga & Meditation Teacher

I am blessed to see all the wonderful, beautiful things Dr. Dean does for the community. He teaches us how to bring gratitude into every aspect of our lives, and how having gratitude will transform our perception and perspective. Dr. Dean Telano's  is patient, compassionate, full of wisdom and endless knowledge. He creates a safe, nurturing space for his students to learn and grow. He teaches us how to always be in action, and the way to navigate through our challenges in the present moment. After over 20 years of sexual abuse and trauma, I now live a life that is safe and surrounded by divine light. The trauma taught me to shut down, and Dr. Dean Telano taught me how to overcome that. No matter how traumatic my past was, meeting Dr. Dean and becoming his student was the greatest blessing life has given me! 

Meredeth S., Physical Therapist

"I discovered Yoga Teacher Training Program about a year and a half ago. The yoga style taught here is often described as the yoga of “spiritual alignment”…which is exactly what it has brought into my life. I live over an hour away from East Northport and there are many studio’s here and there…I choose to attend yoga and meditation classes at this yoga and meditation studio. I have discovered that this style of yoga is a retreat for my mind, body, and soul. I also bring my 4 children to Dr. Telano’s monthly meditation class where he not only guides the entire class with compassion into a place of inner peace, but always seem to add humor that enables my children to glean balance and harmony as well. Love and Light.

Jenna D., Yoga Teacher

Initially, I had only expected to gain knowledge in teaching yoga, however, I had learned so much more about yoga and especially myself.  Through learning how to share the yoga experience with others, I experienced so much through my own personal transformation.  Dr. Telano offers so much of his own wisdom and insight that is invaluable to my development as a Yoga Teacher, but as a ‘spirit in transformation’.  This experience is something that I cannot help but to carry with me every day.

Christian W., Model, Yoga Teacher

Mike M., Home Contractor

Enrolling in the Kind Karma Yoga Teacher training was the best thing I've done in a long time. I had severe breathing problems and was under a tremendous amount of stress. Not only has my breathing improved, my stress levels are some much more manageable. I have learned how yoga can impact everyone's life, including mine. Thank you Dr. Dean for you kindness, compassion, wisdom and of course, spiritual teachings! 

Chris D., Restuarant Manager

I have always love yoga. However, after the Kind Karma Yoga Training I love it even more. I have learned so many things about yoga, such as the proper (safe) way to enter and leave a yoga posture. Learning about the many different breathing exercises (pranayama) and their benefits was so interesting to me.  Moreover, the spiritual teachings given by Dr. Dean was astonishing! They have forever changed my life. I am now happier, more peaceful and calmer.  This program is life changing. Thank you Dr. Dean and all that you do. I will aways be grateful!
