Sangha Yoga's Evolution


From 2003 to 2014, Sangha Yoga operated as a drop-in yoga center in downtown Kalamazoo. Over time, the yoga industry changed. Karina Mirsky recognized that Sangha Yoga's service also needed to evolve. In 2015 the studio closed and Sangha Yoga Institute, became a school for higher learning. 

School of Higher Learning


Sangha Yoga Training School launched in 2008. We run 200 & 300 hour yoga teacher certifications and YMC coach certification.  All of our programs are accredited by the National Yoga Alliance. We also offer online workshops, international retreats, supervision for yoga teachers, and private coaching.
