"The Mindry Meditation Teacher Training Course was one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. It exceeded my expectations in so many ways. Alexandra, who was the lead teacher in the course has an incredible gift of sharing her knowledge and creating an inspiring, supportive, collaborative learning environment in a group. She and and all the other teachers throughout the course are so gifted, and they generously shared their talents, knowledge, insights and advice. Beyond learning how to be a meditation guide, and gaining practice and feedback for those skills, this course has deepened my personal practice, and has given me so much inspiration for how I want to bring mindfulness into the world. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is thinking of becoming a meditation teacher, wants to learn more about mindfulness, or just wants to explore bringing a deeper personal practice into their life."

"Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think" - Buddha. This training was one of the best decisions and investments I've made in my life. This course exposed me to recognize the unconscious, aimlessly wandering thoughts that roamed through my mind. Through practice I've learned to stop those doors before they open, and how to appreciate the moment (in easy & challenging times). Friends & family have noticed my overall aura is brighter and lighter - and I feel it inside my heart. This training has improved every aspect of my life and I cannot emphasize how much I recommend this training for all!

Honestly my mind was blown with the wealth of knowledge that Alex has under her belt I’m biased because I’m a big fan since day 1. But I’ve been meditating for 4 years and this is exactly what I needed. It tied up all of the loose ends for me, created a community where we all became super good friends and deepened our practice immensely. I’ve been telling everyone how amazing it was in terms of friends and family. I started doing meditation sessions with my family via zoom and friends in person. I’ve been apart of a lot of high end training and I was thoroughly impressed. I would literally do it again :) very thankful and grateful for this opportunity.
