What is a Certified Instructor?

A certified instructor has undergone a minimum of 300 hrs of training in our Mindful Teacher Year-Long Certification Program and has had their teaching evaluated by Mindful Schools. Certified Instructors have made a significant commitment to the theory and practice of mindfulness in education.

How Do I Use This Directory?

The first way to use the Directory is to search for instructors in your region. You can also search by age ranges worked with (e.g. K5) and specializations (e.g. autism). Reading instructor biographies will give you an even better sense of who is the best fit for you.

Note: We do not conduct criminal or personal background checks on Certified Instructors. This is the responsibility of the schools or agencies hiring them for services (the vast majority of schools and youth service agencies are already mandated to do background checks on all employees and contractors by law). Mindful Schools is not liable or responsible for any actions of the Certified Instructors listed here. This directory is meant to be a resource for those seeking mindfulness services for youth populations. If you choose to use the directory, you do so at your own risk.
