We are the oldest Yoga SCHOOL in the Inland Empire of Southern California.

Our School offers RYS200, RYS300, RYS500 Yoga Alliance accredited yoga teacher training program yearly in Redlands, CA. Self-Exploration & Discovery ViniYoga Teacher Training Programs during the year, beginning in the Fall of each year. The School offers in-depth self-exploration via the Whole World of Yoga - Sutras, Ayurveda, Meditation, Asana in studies, training, practicum with the direct student of Sri Krishnamacharya - Father of Modern Yoga.

The Trainings take place at The Wellness Loft is a private venue perfectly designed for yoga teacher training groups of 10 or less.

The Father of Modern Yoga, Sri Krishnamacharya, taught Ms. Kelley-Piper from age 14, as his personal student in India, where she continued her studies until she opened her first yoga studio. Forty eight years our school reflects the foundation of authenticity that Sri K taught teachers of every lineage (style) that is now represented in North America.

ViniYoga Teacher Training Programs bring to life the whole world of yoga for students of any age, culture, experience and ability, who wish to explore and learn in a professional and peaceful yet stimulating environment for optimal learning.

Students share their commitment to our high standards, values and ethics that are a significant component of the program - History, Philosophy, Principles (Yoga Sutras, Yamas, Niyamas).

Yoga teachers of all lineages attend our trainings to explore and learn how to teach 'yoga to meet each person's need and requirement for their current condition and stage of their life.' Now! ViniYoga is a practice in which a person can safely modify and adapt to immediate needs, originating from The Breath.

The goal of Director/Sr. teacher, Ms. Kelley-Piper, is to prepare each student, by way of individual teaching and partner practice - physically, mentally and emotionally - from the first training weekend to the last. Students graduate with the confidence and experience in 'how to teach' rather than to perform asanas with their students.

A True Teacher

Lynn is a true teacher. She is exceptionally knowledgeable, has years of hands-on experience from true yoga and meditation masters and has a genuine love and gift for teaching. I feel exceptionally grateful for the training I received which shed light and explored the multi-dimensionality of yoga, while honoring the tradition and principles of yogic teaching and Viniyoga. Lynn meets her students where they are at while gently guiding them to explore their own yoga process.


Lynn is kind, but firm. It is obvious upon spending a short time with Lynn that she was born to practice and teach yoga. It is her truth.
What a comfort to find such aunthenticity and wisdom. She is the real-deal :)
I recently completed my 200-hr RYT and feel moved to continue my journey of learning, practicing and unfolding. Thank you Lynn <3

A truly committed yoga student

Thank you, Priscilla, for finding your way to Self-Exploration & Discovery in
ViniYoga Teacher Training Program. A more authentic, committed, dedicated
and generous student and person I have rarely met. You were a ray sunshine
and inspiration throughout every moment of our Program.....with student and
teacher alike. I wish you many years of further exploration in yoga, meditation
and everything we explored, and look forward to seeing you again soon in a
workshop or advanced Program. In gratitude, Lynn

A Journey To Remember

I have been practicing yoga for 16 years and I am so glad that I decided to take this ViniYoga teaching program. It has showed me an overall experience on how to tie my yoga practice all together by being more aware of not only myself and others, but also of the present moment in all things. I have gained a new found outlook on life and I am excited to continue my life long yoga journey with teaching myself and others.
I appreciate Lynn for allowing me into her space and heart. She is passionate about her dedication to teach and help others. I plan to use her ViniYoga teachings as stepping stones to help the community by being a Yoga Therapist. I am looking forward to seeking her guidance in future programs. Lynn, thank you for your time.

Restorative Day

I recently attended a Restorative Day yoga class hosted by Instructor Lynn Kelley-Piper. Let me preface this with the fact that I had never before practiced yoga and was skeptical at best. With knee & back issues, I was very trepidatious about aggravating either. Those fears were immediately put to rest. Every breath, every movement, every explanation was approached so incredibly gently. Lynn creates a welcoming, peaceful atmosphere and is so generous with her wisdom.


Despite there being several other students, I felt like she was instructing only me. I'm quite sure everyone else felt the same. Needless to say this was a revelatory experience for me. I walked out of class loose, refreshed, peaceful, PAIN FREE! And wondering, where has this been all my life!? So, I'm hooked! I highly recommend meeting with and attending one of Lynn's classes and you will see the truth in what I've stated. Thank you so much Lynn!!!

Just right!

Lynn's teaching style is relaxed and comfortable. Alignment and proper technique are stressed to avoid injuries. Each class is different from the last, so there's always something new to keep it interesting.

A Perfect Student!

Lynn Kelley-Piper has my highest recommendation

With an impeccable background in Yoga, meditation, and education Lynn guides one through a journey of healing and understanding. Students of all ages, varied states of health and walks of life benefit from her generous spirit and love of humanity as she leads classes of ViniYoga and meditation. These are not simply classes at the local gym or community center. Having trained with masters such as The Dali Lama, Sri T.


Krishnamacharya, Thic Nhat Hanh, and Pema Chodron, Lynn has an amazing depth of knowledge and is the ultimate professional. Her background in physiology and education help to ensure that students do not incur injury and that their physical and emotional limitations are understood and accommodated. After more than 10 years of studying and training with Lynn I have strengthened physically, grown intellectually, and improved personal relationships . Lynn Kelley-Piper has my highest recommendation and endorsement.

Thank you, Pam, for your trust, confidence and enthusiasm from your first class with me, years ago. It has been an honor to travel this ViniYoga journey together and watch you thrive both on your yoga mat in the classroom and especially out in the real world, using these wonderful tools. My deepest
