create a better world for yourself and others


Learn How To Teach Mindfulness

Teaching mindfulness is hugely rewarding. In this course you’ll learn powerful and practical techniques that will enhance your own mindfulness practice, and enable you to share what you’ve learnt to help others achieve greater wellness, resilience and performance through mindfulness.

Use Ovio's Course Material

Once you’ve completed the course you’ll become an accredited Ovio Mindfulness One Teacher. Using our Ovio Teachers Kit you’ll be ready to deliver our Mindfulness One course in a way that suits your personal or professional aspirations. As well as regular course and material updates, you’ll also be invited to join the Ovio Professionals Network* and receive ongoing training and support.

Grow Yourself And Your Business

Not only will you grow personally by becoming an Ovio mindfulness teacher, you’ll also grow professionally ­– by broadening your skills and delivering our step-by step Mindfulness One program in your own unique way, to expand what you offer to your clients or build a mindfulness business of your own.


Four attributes every Ovio mindfulness teacher
should have:

•   Acceptance    •   Compassion    •   Non-judgement    •   Kindness

These are at the foundation of Ovio’s mindfulness training. While some knowledge of mindfulness is useful, anyone from any background can teach mindfulness, you don’t need any particular prior training.

Ovio mindfulness courses are secular and evidence-based. Our goal is to see you draw on and integrate your own life experience, expertise and wisdom to teach and deliver our step-by-step Mindfulness One program in your own unique way.

We guarantee you’ll grow both personally and professionally through teaching Ovio’s mindfulness courses.
