In-Person Teacher Certification Trainings

“The Koru Mindfulness Training was an overwhelmingly positive experience. All of the trainers were kind, personable, inclusive, accepting and so down-to-earth. It was clear that they all have a deep meditation practice and teach from genuine experience and understanding.”

– Cara McNamara / Johns Hopkins University
