“There is no one right way to teach mindfulness. It functions best when the teacher is experimenting with using his or her own life as a laboratory for exploring and deepening the practice of mindfulness.” John Kabat-Zinn
This experiential-based workshop is an introductory inquiry into the practice of mindfulness; what it means, and how to apply techniques to develop a more mindful presence. Participants will be equipped with an understanding of how they can develop their own skill-set through the application of mindfulness methods to their personal practice. The ultimate goal is for participants to share a heightened capacity for presence with students in classrooms, and the wider school community at large. Practicing mindfulness, teaching mindfully, and teaching it to our students is a segue to a more compassionate world.


Studying with renowned teachers of Yoga, Mindfulness, and Transpersonal Psychology for more than a decade, Elissa speaks from a place of personal depth and practice. She teaches Mindfulness trainings and workshops for educators, and is a grade 5 Inclusion Coach and Wellness Coordinator at Gems American Academy, Abu Dhabi. She is passionate about connecting her two worlds; education and practices for awakening, as she believes it is what teachers, students, and school communities need to fulfill our untapped human potential.
