Q. Can you tell me if the course would be suitable/compatible to practice in my home Country?

The development and interest in Mindfulness MBSR are rapidly growing and training processes are therefore becoming more structured. Within the UK and Spain, there are currently no formal or official qualifications/certification processes which regulate competency in teaching mindfulness-based approaches, this may or not be the case in your country.

This requires those of us working in this developing field to inquire deeply into our own practice, our integrity, our intentions and the boundaries of our skill, competencies and understandings. To meet these recommendations and as a professional and accredited Teacher Training School, we exceed the Educational Standards required by the Yoga Alliance for teaching professional MBSR Meditation Teachers and follow the UK Network for Mindfulness-based Teacher Trainers Best Practice Guidelines. We are also involved in setting up the Best Practice Guidelines for Spain.

Our course is accredited and registered with the Yoga Alliance Professionals in the UK, so on graduation from both TT1 and TT2, you will have a recognised qualification as an MBSR Teacher. If you are a resident of the UK or Ireland this registration also includes insurance to teach. We recommend that all graduates take out teaching insurance, if you already have professional insurance as Therapist or Yoga Teacher you may just need to send a copy of your certificate to your insurance Company for them to add MBSR Teaching to your cover.

TT1 Online, March 2020

I attended the TT1 in March 2020, which was the first TT1 course online - due to the Coronavirus circumstances. I had my doubts about how we could lead the meditations online and be open within the group that I had not met in person before. 

The course started and all my doubts…

Elise testimonial

Hear from Elise who has just finished the ONLINE version of the MBSR Teacher Training course, first level, TT1.

The excellent initial teacher training that I received at Solterreno in 2014 allowed me to take my first steps on my teaching pathway. The certificate, proof on paper that I could deliver the MBSR curriculum and be a "good enough" teacher. 

for me, this TT3 step came at just the right time.

Since training at Solterreno I have begun teaching the MBSR course in my local area and I have been accepted onto the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations. This shows that my training at Solterreno and ongoing supervision meets the UK Good Practice Guidelines for…
