21 ways to promote your meditation teacher skills

Becoming a meditation teacher might be on your vision board for the future, but attracting clients to hire you to teach can feel overwhelming – especially if you struggle to connect the idea of business and mindfulness together!

When you are a a freelancer running your own business, you’ll feel like you wear many hats!  One of them is promoting your valuable services so potential clients can connect with you!

Or perhaps the idea of promoting yourself and your meditation work fills you with dread?  You simply want people to find you and choose your services.  But as we know, life is busy and there are so many distractions that it can feel difficult to be heard and seen by potential parents, carers and adults who need your services.

For the past 20 years, we’ve been dedicated to training meditation teachers, especially those focused on teaching children and teens through our Connected Kids program.

As part of the Connected Kids program’s core values, we believe in fostering a community where exchanging insights benefits everyone; it’s important that our meditation teachers have a successful teaching practice so we encourage sharing ideas and best practices in our exclusive online member community.
