~ Rahini Yoga Begins From The Inside out...It Helps Grow The Yoga That's Already Inside Each of Us ~



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

We have been professionally certifying Yoga Teachers since 2001. We believe learning how to teach yoga can be educational, inspirational, joyful, and of course – spiritual.

Rahini Yoga is a Heart-Centered Yoga because it promotes spiritual growth, self-transformation, self-healing, radiant health, and personal empowerment. This style of yoga teaches us how to “awaken the yoga within” by combining traditional and contemporary yoga study and training with spiritual awakening.

In Joy, Peace & Light,
