Meditation Teacher Training

Mindfulness, Meditation, Breathwork and Yoga Psychology Training

Sign up for a 20 Hour Training Approved by NASW-PA and Yoga Alliance

Zoom option or in the studio.

This 20 hour dynamic program will revitalize your self-care and therapy skill set. The embodied practices of mindfulness, meditation and breathwork (pranayama in Yoga) will support your clients in being more aware of what they are holding emotionally in their bodies and how to release it. Yoga psychology provides insight into understanding our Samskaras – unconscious and unskillful tendencies that affect our choices now. Social workers, therapists and others will learn how to intuitively source specific ways to ground their clients in the present moment providing a safe haven for self-awareness and change.
Mindfulness, meditation and breathwork can enhance entire communities and is an important skill for any individual’s personal development. Empowering our clients and students is essential in bringing more peace of mind to them and the more people who can teach, the more people will have access to learning how to live more conscious and healthier lives.
This training is for anyone who wants to learn mindfulness, meditation and breathwork or deepen their existing meditation practice or share in teaching others. On completion of the training, you will feel confident to teach to different types of individuals or groups.
If you are a Yoga teacher, you will learn how to integrate it into your classes or teach meditation programs. Mental health professionals, health care providers, doctors, nurses, teachers, healers, meditators, therapists, addiction specialists, and those in ministry or hospice who are called to teach or apply these principles in their professions will be given the tools to start.
