Mindful Kids Miami  

MKM's vision is to improve the lives of all children in the community by giving them access to mindfulness skills which reduce stress and anxiety, develop attention and focus, promote emotional regulation and impulse control, teach empathy and compassion, and create a sense of well-being.

The M-Body & Mind training is an introduction to mindfulness based on the foundations of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, the golden standard of mindfulness research-based programs in the world. 

The many benefits of mindfulness practice range from reducing stress, burnout and anxiety, to increasing sleep quality, pain management and the quality of relationships. For educators, practicing mindfulness has been shown to improve classroom culture, connection with students, student behavior and academic achievement.

In this course participants will be introduced to mindfulness through topic discussion and brief mindfulness practices, and participants will receive guided audio recordings and home practice support.
