Children’s Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training
Become a certified children’s meditation teacher.
In this meditation instructor certification training, you will be coached and trained on how to teach children at every age and stage of their development the self-awareness, ethical living, self-soothing, and concentration practices of mindfulness meditation.
Studies have shown that learning meditation practices at an early age increases a child’s emotional stability, resilience, self-confidence, and prepares the child to successfully navigate life’s emotional ups and downs.
In the children’s meditation teacher training certification course, you’ll learn how to be a mentor and teacher to children at every age and stage of their development. This training will empower you with age-appropriate practices to help children gain better self awareness, to manage anxiety, to promote well being, and to live a more ethical and joyful life.
“This was an awesome class. I had a great time during our discussions as we all shared our personal experiences from our own professional backgrounds, and I’ve learned to relate much better to students who I work with. I particularly enjoyed getting ideas from the lesson plans, which broke down the information and helped me to be able to plan my own classes. I look forward to more of these trainings!”Meredith B.

About The Course
The children’s mindfulness and meditation teacher training course is an online course that you can complete on your own schedule. Once you register, you’ll receive all the information that you’ll need to get started with the first lessons. As you complete homework assignments, we’ll send you information for the upcoming lessons.
Prerequisites and Prior Experience
The Children’s Meditation Teacher Training course is open to ALL experience levels. Yoga teacher certification training is useful, but not necessary for this children’s yoga teacher certification training. If you are not currently certified as a yoga instructor, the children’s meditation training course is a great introduction to many aspects of yoga training and an excellent starter series—especially if you have an interest in working with children.
“I was nervous about taking this course but what I found was a group of people with like minded energy that I could share ideas with. Debbie’s open energy allowed all of us to be open with each other and our thoughts.”Catherine R.

All class sessions are held online and delivered in a streaming format. You can watch each lesson and complete assignments at your own pace and on your own schedule.

Weekly tutorial sessions are recorded for those who may not be able to attend live.
“I liked the pace of the material. The way we could apply to our own lives. I have been a meditator for a long time. This class opened new doors, giving me the confidence to teach. I enjoyed sharing with others on Zoom, fun way to meet like minded people.”Patricia B.

“I wanted to become a Children’s Mindfulness Meditation Teacher in order to improve my clinical skills working with children and to be able to pass on the gift of meditation to the next generation that so desperately need it. I found the training through an email from Heal Me Institute. The most interesting thing for me about the course was the ways in which the material was connected to the everyday lives of children. Previously, I had thought of mediation mainly being applicable to adults. I have an M.Ed. in special education and an MS in psychology from Southern New Hampshire University, and will soon be a licensed behavior analyst and RYT. My job will be to provide behavioral consultation for families and individuals suffering from mental illnesses and developmental disabilities. I’ve used this information with one of my current clients to teach him to remain focused. It’s an ongoing process with him, but so far so good.”Matt
