Meditation Instructor Certification – Meditation Teacher Training
Meditation can also be learned very well at home through self-directed learning. The same applies to learning how to lead meditations and how to build a course.
Distance learning is practical
The practical aspect of distance learning is the independence of time and space. No matter where you are, you can take a distance learning course to become a trainer with us. Many people feel the need to organise their time in such a way that daily business and/or project-related assignments can continue during their training and further education. This is often difficult, especially if you teach courses and seminars on the weekends.
Many, too, cannot spare one or several weeks for training because they have family who need them or would like to spend the holidays with them. There are numerous advantages to taking a distance learning course.
Theory units can be integrated into your own daily routine in such a way that they can be implemented within your professional context and fit in with your habits. Study can be adapted to individual needs and the planning of the practice units can be aligned with business consideration. You yourself can determine when you want to practice relaxation.
