Q. Hi I am very interested in attending this course . Is it a recognised in line with other courses TTR1?

The Mindful Academy Solterreno Teacher Training Retreat TTR1 is similar to the TTR1 offered by many of the UK universities with some major differences. 

Our TTR1 is 100hrs compared to 50hrs with other organisations. This enables us to give you the practical skills and confidence to actually teach the Mindfulness MBSR core practices including Enquiry and Mindful Movement without the need to take additional courses.

Our course is accredited and registered with the Yoga Alliance in the UK, so on graduation from both TTR1 and TTR2 you will have a recognized qualification as a MBSR Meditation Teacher where as some other courses are Continued Professional Development (CPD) courses.

Importantly, in the Mindful Academy TTR1, using the provided scripts you will practice teaching in a safe and nurturing environment with feedback both from your peers as well as more formal feedback following the UK Mindfulness-based Teaching Intervention criteria (otherwise known as the MBI TAC´s!) from Bodhin and myself. Our intention is to support your development, so that once home you can immediately integrate the practices into your professional life.  We also offer Supervision and Mentoring to ensure that we are on hand should you need additional support.

The love and care and nurture that has gone into the development of this Centre are very evident in everything right from the teaching to the most practical aspects of living and food arrangements. there is an embodiment of the Mindfulness-Based practices throughout the course.

Thank you…


I took Level 1 in Solterreno last May and I am so glad I did. The description on the website is in line with the actual course and it gives you a concrete overall idea of the MBSR program.

We went through both the content of each of the 8 MBSR sessions and to the competences to work on…


I would definitely recommend the MBSR teacher training at Solterreno. The course was very professionally delivered by both of the trainers. The program of the input sessions was sensibly structured giving the participants just the right amount of knowledge and providing them with lots of…


The mindfulness teacher training at Solterreno exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere is very supportive, created by the caring nature of Bodhin and the retreat team, which in turn leads to a strong connection within the group. The course has a good level of focus on hands-on practice with…
