Why Be Mindful?
We embrace diversity in various researched-backed curricula to create courses that are designed to custom fit a client’s individual need.
Researchers, practitioners, and teachers agree that the quality of the instructor is paramount to the success of the intervention. Our instructors are highly qualified individuals with decades of personal practice and trained in multiple modalities.
Overall employee health and wellness can create a healthier environment in the workplace, decrease employee health care expenses, and positively affect the community as a whole.
We have a unique way of tracking ongoing practice and outcome that is easy and accessible to all trainees to insure the success of the program. Trainees are rewarded for practice and tracking participation is easy.
Our programs have a 30% to 50% higher success rate than other mindfulness programs.
Evaluation and Results
We systematically evaluate the progress of our programs via teacher observation, questionnaires, interviews, self-reports and quantitative outcomes, such as changes in students' performance, both academically and socially.
