Yoga Teacher Training

Namaste and Welcome to the Rahini School of Yoga & Meditation​

We have been professionally offering yoga and meditation teacher certification since 2001 - for 18 years!  We believe learning how to teach yoga can be educational, inspirational, joyful, and of course – spiritual.​  It is also our belief that yoga should be taught in a compassionate, safe, supportive and encouraging yogic environment that provides a professional foundation upon which our graduates have the knowledge, skills, confidence and inspiration to teach - and to share, yoga.

Graduates from our Rahini Yoga®, Meditation and Gong & Sound Training Programs 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.

Rahini Yoga® is a Heart-Centered Yoga because it incorporates heart-based practices, promotes personal and spiritual growth, self-healing and self-empowerment.  This style of yoga helps us to realize our own potential, and awaken our wisdom and creative energies within, by combining traditional and contemporary yoga study, training and practices.

We are looking forward to sharing a spiritual journey together, and spreading loving-kindness, peace, healing, yoga, meditation and sound healing throughout the world!

In Joy, Peace, Light & Kind Karma®
