The Path of a Yogi (POAY) system has been in place for 10 years. Good Karma has held 10+ trainings and certified only 30 teachers in that time. All have gone on to teach if they choose, either at Good Karma or elsewhere.
A core curriculum is the backbone of the training. Yet each group or individual who studies with us will have a program that is tailored to their specific needs, strengths and weaknesses.

The ancient system of yoga is what we focus on. When we delve into the depths of our minds through our bodies. Following proven methods we begin to release and remove the identities that hold us back from listening to our higher self. Liberating ourselves from emotional, and physical suffering.

This system allows us to peel away these identities so we can hear our calling, find and follow our greatest desires, and live life to the fullest.
