The Open Hand Institute

Dr. Nydia Tijerina Darby is the Director, Lead Specialist and Lead Educator of the Open Hand Institute (OHI).   OHI currently offers exclusive 200 hour and 300 hour Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher Training programs that are presented in small groups on site at Nydia’s Yoga Therapy Serenidad Studio.  2020 has brought many new adventures to our communities (speaking kindly)… and the current 2020 Trainings have become Hybrid teacher trainings with the use of LIVESTREAMING to keep our programs running.  It is likely that this HYBRID version of trainings will continue.  There are many positives, and one is that this opens up our trainings to individuals who are located all over the world.  


The Open Hand Institute offers educational workshops, hosting international Master Yoga Lifestyle Educators and supports the continuing education for yoga instructors.  These programs are also happening via LIVESTREAM.


OHI’s Mission is to provide the tools that empower, educate, develop, connect and support local & global long term yoga lifestyle practitioners and professionals.


The Open Hand Institute is an educational platform for yoga and medical professionals and the community of yoga lifestyle practitioners and learners that is directed towards elevating, inspiring and uniting our local and global communities with opportunities to learn from Master educators in all fields.  It is  positioned to provide a platform for yoga and medical professionals to access continuing education, entry-level to advanced learning and networking opportunities.


The Open Hand Institute is committed to providing tools that empower, educate and that serve to develop resilient human beings.  To share information about how science supports the practices and to support the continuing education and research opportunities that help to bridge the local and global medical and yoga communities.
