David Nichtern’s meditation teacher training programs are created in collaboration with various yoga and fitness studios as well as companies providing meditation programs in a variety of contexts including corporate wellness programs. The trainings help trainees gain a more complete understanding of meditation practice and the stages of the path, deepen their own practice, and develop their ability to present the teachings in a clear and genuinely helpful way to others.

These trainings are aimed at yoga teachers, health care professionals, social workers, life coaches, psychologists, fitness trainers and anyone who wishes to become more skillful in presenting meditation. They are also appropriate for those who simply want to deepen their own practice and understanding.

The Meditation Teacher Training is structured in 3-4 levels. Participants may take any/all of the levels but they must be taken in sequence.

Upon successful completion of the training, participants will be certified by the yoga studio or affiliate company to teach meditation classes, lead group practice sessions and work with individual students within appropriate contexts.
