Why Certification?

You likely already know that certification does not reflect wisdom, and wisdom does not require certification. At the same time, what we value we dedicate our resources to – be it time, money, heart or mental space. While you certainly don’t “need” a certification, it can be gratifying and meaningful to have something that reflects your deep commitment. 

It’s best to gain one with a teacher and lineage you can trust and deepen with, rather than default to “what’s out there” in order to fulfill a requirement. 

So I’m pleased to make these certifications available for you, the yogic seeker.

"A spiritual seeker must conform to one thing: dharma" ~ Swami Dayānanda

*Nectar of Yoga Certifications do not authenticate you to teach what you have studied, but, in keeping with the tradition, reflect your dedication and accomplishment as a student. If you are meant to teach what is shared, that will reveal itself in due time, in the form of training in methodology and blessing from the lineage of stewards. If you have already completed some or all of the content in your desired certification, please contact Kaya’s to find out your next steps!

I wanted to just begin by expressing my whole hearted thankfulness- for you, your teaching, and the sangha you've cultivated. I would tell you all the aha! moments and things you've said that have just felt like you were speaking to my soul, but it would be a very, very long email. I finally feel at home in my spiritual life, no longer grasping at anything and everything. Your teaching has helped me to understand myself through a lens of compassion and wisdom, for which I am endlessly grateful.
"Kaya has been an inspiration for living a grounded, integrated, accessible, yogic life. It’s hard to put into words the value of having that kind of example in my life. To receive knowledge from an authentic and loving teacher is truly a gift! The energy and grace that is carried through Kaya's words, voice and very essence are a soothing balm for the body mind and spirit. In a world that feels so unstable these teachings create a vast container of security and love. She are a rare gift in this world Kaya and an amazing teacher."
“Thank you, Kaya, for your humility, wit, clarity, care, insight, your ability to hold an expansive vision and to empathize with our individual struggles ...may we as students know our unique and valuable contribution to the endless flow of teachings that you share with us. I honestly had no idea teacher-student relationships could be so nourishing and I know that is because you are tapped into something very real, very meaningful and very magical.Thank you to your teachers and theirs and theirs throughout time.”
