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.

This Accredited Program Includes Eight Key Modules

The Meditation & Mindfulness Teacher Training program is accredited with the Meditation Association of Australia, the national peak body for registration and representation of meditation teachers.

Understand Various Meditation Styles, Theory & Approaches

Discover a variety of meditation styles including history, philosophy, intended effects and potential implications. 

Deep Dive Into Mindfulness Meditation

The main style of meditation taught during this program is Mindfulness Meditation. Learn vocabulary, sequencing, pacing, and a range of meditations to suit a variety of audiences.

Teach Meditation

By the end of this program, you'll have the confidence to share an Introductory Meditation Program - teach it outright or incorporate the teachings into your existing role/offerings.

Teach Mindfulness 

By the end of this program, you'll be equipped to share an Introductory Mindfulness Program, supporting others to integrate a variety. of Mindfulness practices into everyday life.

Practice Teaching & Planning Classes

Within the safe space of our teacher training group, you'll learn and practice teaching meditations, and holding space for individuals, and groups. You'll also learn how to effectively sequence meditation classes.

Physiology, Psychology & Neuroscience 

Learn about brain function, attention training and impacts of meditation on behaviour and cognitive functions, including therapeutic aspects on stress, trauma, pain, illness and more.

Develop a New Relationship With Thoughts & Emotions

As you expand your awareness, and 'observe' more rather than 'attach',  you'll develop a healthier relationship to your own Self. This will put you in great stead to teach from personal experience with Meditation & Mindfulness (combined with your own pre-course experience).

Ethics and Holding Space for Others

Understand the role you play as a Meditation & Mindfulness Teacher within a broader referral, client and community network. Learn about professional boundaries, confidentiality and legalities/insurances.

 

"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!"
