"Dr. Dean Telano is the most wonderful, caring, intelligent and healing individuals I have ever met. Being a master of yoga, meditation, Qi Gong and reiki are only a few of his many beautiful teaching and healing techniques he uses to help heal the world. He created Kind Karma Worldwide to help all living and spiritual beings to live in peace, harmony, love and kindness. His mission is so beautiful and pure, it can truly change the world for the better if everyone gave it a chance. He has helped me in my life in every way possible. My journey of healing myself as well as others is solely based on what I have learned from Dr. Dean Telano. Everything he has taught and shown me will absolutely change the way I live my life in the best way possible. I will always be grateful and blessed to have the honor of learning, healing and growing from him."

"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. Under Dr. Dean Telano's guidance my life has become more beautiful and truly feel like a gift. Dr. Dean has taught me how being alive is blessing, and that we have the choice in how we respond to what happens to us and what happens around us. Dr. Dean Telano teaches us how to be kind how to raise our vibration."

“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 goes beyond what is even necessary to train a great yoga teacher. Dr. Dean teaches Spiritual Alignment and focuses his teachings on this concept to carry out true and rightful living."
