Chris Hecimovich

I have attended many training sessions in both my professional and personal life – ranging from business training courses to self-development courses and I’ve also attained multiple certificates in the world of Restorative and Hatha Yoga. I can, without a doubt, and with complete integrity, say that the TT1 100 hour Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course at Mindful Academy has been my favourite – it is very intensive yet completely enjoyable.

The way that the MBSR foundation is taught with an accompanying handbook with all the lecture notes helps to really get deep and be present in what Bodhin and Kathy are teaching us. The way the hands on practice is integrated with the theory and supporting science is perfect. Bodhin and team are very genuine and knowledgeable in their approach to the practice.

The setting for the training and the way our entire group “connected as a whole” over the retreat really helped to solidify the power of this practice. I will be returning for TT2 to take the foundation to the next level as soon as I am able. I can’t imagine a more beautiful setting to do this. I felt very humbled by the entire experience, and I’m grateful for it.

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.
