This Meditation & Mindfulness Teacher Training 110hr program is about reconnecting to what matters most...
Mindfulness is a remembrance of what IS, now. That is, seeing this present moment clearly, while cultivating attitudes - or ways of being, that are beneficial e.g. loving-kindness, compassion, acceptance, gratitude.
When we can be here fully in the present moment - without distraction and with a spacious awareness, we unveil CONNECTION to our highest Self and life around us.
With Presence, your physical body, breath and mind fall back into alignment, and you become whole-spirited again. Everything comes back to life!
There is so much going on in life to distract us away from the now - and our highest aspirations, like living with peace, harmony and vitality.
This program is as much about your own Self-Realisation as it is learning how to introduce others to meditation and mindfulness.

"The Mindful Yoga School’s Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher Training is life changing! The program is so well paced with sessions that keep you invested in your own practice and the teachings in such a gentle and heart felt way. Erin is the queen of space holding and she is the embodiment of presence. An amazing teacher who not only imparts her vast knowledge in this field, but also real-world experience (all with love, compassion and gentleness). I walked out of this program with not only valuable skills in mindfulness, meditation and holding space but a deeper sense of devotion to my own practice. Thank you, I am so grateful!"
