“My second week (teaching) now and class numbers are up to 29!!!! Word of mouth is starting to work…”


“I was apprehensive about signing up for the Mind Body Education program because I didn’t know if it would be the right path for me, but I couldn’t have taken a better step! The course(s) is well laid out, informative and interesting. The support and preparation I received empowered me to create my own direction. Whether you intend to continue as a practitioner or just want to learn the material for yourself, Mind Body Education courses are a top educational gift to yourself”


“There is NO other course that you can do that has the ability to CHANGE YOUR CAREER, INSTANTLY!!! There is simply NOTHING else you could possibly need to start your own holistic wellbeing practice... with all that is given at the completion of Certificate in Meditation and Holistic Counselling!”




    You do not need previous experience or prior qualifications, just a desire to build a rewarding career that helps other people live happier, healthier lives.


    On Completion of the certificate level intensive training course you will be qualified to work as a professional Meditation Teacher, Chair Yoga instructor and Holistic Counsellor or Holistic Life Coach. On completion of the advanced certificate level course, you will also be qualified and confident to offer Meditation as a healing modality and teach Autonomic Nervous System Realignment and Brain-Body Medicine. Graduates in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom can use the titles Meditation Teacher, Meditation Therapist and also Holistic Counsellor. Graduates in the USA can use the titles Meditation Teacher, Meditation Therapist and Holistic Therapist and advertise that they offer Holistic Counselling Services (due to inconsistent laws in various states of America prohibiting the use of the title ‘Counsellor’). If you live in a different country, please get in touch with us to discover the laws about using titles in your country. You will be able to work for yourself teaching Meditation, chair yoga and positive life skills in the community to groups and individuals and in the corporate sector as a stress management consultant. You will also be able to provide holistic counselling and holistic life coaching services. You may also seek employment, if you wish, in holistic healthcare centres, wellbeing clinics, health clubs, natural therapies centres and retreats, gymnasiums, respite centres and community centres as well as several other areas that wish to employ qualified holistic therapists with a focus on Meditation therapy and positive self-development.


    Many Meditation Teacher and Yoga Teacher training colleges are accredited with “modality” exclusive associations. We, at the IMTTA, are very cautious about who we choose to get our courses accredited with. We have chosen the International Institute of Complementary Therapists (who have an excellent global reputation) as our primary industry accrediting body. It is important to emphasise the term ‘industry accredited’. Yoga and Meditation are two modalities that do not legally require any formal accreditation in any country in the world. The IICT has accredited our courses based on the quality of the educational content of our courses and not because it fits in with a format or methodology, determined by someone who proclaims to be an expert in a field which has so many aspects, it would be impossible to ever become an expert in it. The IICT accreditations allow our graduates to join the IICT and to get professional practitioner insurance, in 26 countries around the world. So, we are not interested in having the IMTTA courses “accredited’ with organizations that are focused on approving specific styles or methods for teaching Yoga or Meditation. Yoga is not our main focus. The Chair Yoga component of the course is to complement Meditation teaching. Our main focus is on Meditation as Therapy and the courses go very deeply into the mind/body connection in physical and psychological health and exploring Meditation as a holistic (and very powerful and effective) healing modality. IMTTA courses are all evidence (not philosophy) based and incorporate a wide variety of techniques and styles. While the IMTTA courses go way beyond the scope of most Yoga teacher or Meditation teacher training courses, they do not necessarily conform to the requirements of the associations that are interested in training teachers, because we train therapist. The IMTTA courses are ‘industry’ accredited (as opposed to ‘modality’ accredited) with the IICT so our graduates will have a high level of professionalism and be able to get insurance. If you have graduated from an IMTTA training course, you can use the following letters after your name, depending on which level of the IMTTA training course you have completed. Certificate level: Cert.Med.Hol.Couns (MBE) Advanced Certificate level: Adv.Cert.Med.Hol.Couns (MBE) Diploma Level: Dip.Med.Hol.Couns. (MBE) Advanced Diploma Level: Adv.Dip.Med.Hol.Couns. (MBE) Masters of Holistic Counselling: Mast.Hol.Couns. (MBE) The (MBE) stands for Mind Body Education. The IMTTA is a division of Mind Body Education. *If you have completed an IMTTA training course you are entitled to use these letters after your name, no matter which college you graduated from.
