Teach Koru. Change lives.

Mindfulness is one of the most critical skills a college age adult can master. Yet too often, the way mindfulness is taught is neither relevant nor accessible to the people who need it most.

Koru’s evidence-based training is specifically designed to address this problem, and it’s backed up by a comprehensive certification and teacher-support program. Our mindfulness teacher certification program will get you the tools to start changing lives.
