WELCOME TO THE TEACHER'S PATH
Whether you are a Wellness Professional wishing to expand your offerings or a Meditation enthusiast seeking to deepen your personal practice, you've come to the right place!
The 200 hr Online Meditation Teacher Training Program by InspirED Me is designed for anyone interested in deepening their practice of meditation and learning how to offer the gift of meditation to others. Whether you choose to teach a class, a retreat, your friends and family, or focus on personal development, Meditation Teacher Training is an opportunity to dive deeper into your understanding of awareness and to promote the cultivation of mindfulness in both your life and others.
In this self-paced program, you have the flexibility to learn in the way that best suits you and your unique schedule. Each Program Module combines a variety of learning components including video, audio, worksheets, quizzes, and practical work. As you progress through the Curriculum, you will be supported every step of the way by your caring Facilitators.
Our 200 hr Meditation Teacher Training program is based on the teachings of Mindfulness and personal authenticity. Though incorporating understandings from a variety of traditions and spiritual practices, the training does not teach a specific style or tradition.
We offer an inclusionary approach to teaching that allows for a wide variety of techniques, teachings and understanding. Our focus is on the expansion of individual awareness and providing the teacher the tools needed to help facilitate this learning.
Upon completion of the program you will receive a Certificate of Completion and be registered as a 200 hr Certified Meditation Instructor through InspirED Me Learning & Coaching.

YOUR PRIMARY INSTRUCTOR
Caroline Stewart ERYT200, CYA-MT, YACEP, BSCN
Caroline's journey with Yoga, Meditation and Personal Development began some 17 or so years ago with a crash course introduction to both the physical and spiritual practices of Yoga. She was immediately hooked, but not by the asana. It was the philosophy - the deeper teachings, that got her.
Yoga and Meditation have been constants for Caroline. At some times playing a greater role in terms of physical practice, while always remaining a part of her ideology and approach to life.
Caroline loves to facilitate self-discovery. With so much depth and wisdom to explore, Meditation offers the perfect vehicle for this journey of inquiry, growth and personal evolution.
My extensive background in Business, Health & Wellness and teaching is brought together in my offering to you in each of these InspirED courses.
