200 hour online meditation teacher training

We have partnered with MindBodyGreen to create an online teacher training program that certifies you to teach the four main experiences of meditation: Mindfulness/present moment awareness; calm focused intention; transcendence; energized body/mind. This course is a standalone teacher training that will certify you to teach meditation straight away.  For those who would like to continue their training afterwards and become additionally certified as Vedic Meditation teachers this course will count towards your training.
