Our signature
Institute for Meditation offers a holistic approach to meditation. This means we don’t teach one specific method, but rather give a complete perspective on the differences between the various ways of meditation. With this teaching you will be able to recognize the benefits and limitations of the different approaches to meditation. This enables you to consciously choose the right meditation techniques to fit your specific interest, purpose and audience. We encourage you to share from your creativity and authenticity. Sharing the meditation you are most passionate about!

Why teach meditation?
People are looking for silence, clarity, and answers in a more complex world. More and more companies, yoga studios, and schools acknowledge the benefits of meditation and incorporate meditation into their daily operations. With teaching groups and individuals, you can inspire thousands of people by sharing your authentic guidance for opening up to life.

The best way of learning is teaching
Scientists found out that students enlisted to tutor others work harder to understand the material, recall it more accurately, and apply it more effectively. Feedback from students or peers further enhances the tutors’ learning. A teacher training is the best way to explore and understand the fundamentals of meditation.

What meditation teacher training graduates gain
Graduates have the skills and confidence to guide meditations, the knowledge of a vast variety of meditations, the creativity to fit the right meditation for the right audience and situation, the knowledge of ancient meditation philosophies, a deepened human understanding to guide and coach people, a progressive set of tools for teaching or other ways of guiding groups (yoga, primary & secundary school, corporate trainings etc) and an official Meditation Teacher Certification with the Institute for Meditation.

After successful completion of this training you will receive an official Meditation Teacher Certification with the Institute for Meditation. Participants receive a certificate of completion that can be counted as 50Hr of continuing education with the Yoga Alliance. If you are a registered yoga teacher (RYT) you must meet the Continuing Education (CE) Requirements on an ongoing basis. Every three years starting from your initial date of registration you must complete and log a minimum of 30 hours of yoga related training. Institute for Meditation is a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider® (YACEP) who has been verified by and is in good standing with Yoga Alliance.

Institute of Meditations teachings are based on philosophies derived from Tao, Advaita and Buddhism. They focus on becoming aware of basic assumptions about life and their implications in your daily life. With ancient teachings and models from Tao and Advaita philosophy, we recognize and unveil limiting ideas to explore a spontaneous, open-minded way of living. With the ancient knowledge of Buddhism we explore the vicious circle of searching and suffering in life (Samsara) and the opportunity for liberation from this cycle (Nirvana).
