Lauren Alvarez is a MBSR teacher in training, with the Mindful Academy Solterreno. She is Psychology Graduate BSc and a qualified Early Years and Primary School Teacher.
Lauren first became interested in mindfulness during a professional development course aimed at introducing mindfulness in the classroom. Since then Lauren has completed a variety of courses teaching mindfulness to young children. After completing the MBSR herself she decided to deepen her understanding of teaching mindfulness to adults and enrolled in the teacher training course. This course not only helped her grow professionally but it deepened her own practice too. Now Lauren is teaching some of the core MBSR practices to adults and continues to develop mindfulness awareness among the very young children in her school. She hopes that one-day mindfulness teaching will be accessible to all from a young age.
In her spare time Lauren writes rhyming fiction based on mindfulness principles and enjoys sharing these with her own children and the children she teaches.
