Our curriculum motivates children and adults alike to experience mindfulness and compassion principles, on and off the meditation seat.
Partnerships are inclusive and collaborative, resulting in excellent professional development for teachers and staff.
Ours is a residency-based program in schools. MNDFL teachers are available before, during, and after classes to build relationships, answer questions, and contribute to community.

Welcome to MNDFL Ed!
We started MNDFL Ed because, in today's world,
mindfulness and compassion practices are important, and in
my personal experience it's more than important - it's
invaluable to teens and youth in NYC schools.
This project is inspired by the community and
camaraderie that you've already seen at the MNDFL studios.
Thousands of people, mostly adults, have experienced the
feeling of peace, relaxation, and self reflection offered
by our amazing teaching staff at MNDFL. My inspiration is
to bring this experience to teens and youth - creating
safe spaces within schools for young people to explore
their minds and hearts, and form healthy connections with
peers and adults.
On a personal note, I was fortunate to be exposed to
mindfulness as a teenager and it has stuck with me my
whole life. My aspiration is for all young people to learn
these tools in order to counter stress, fear, anxiety and
everything they have to face in today’s world.
I hope you will join me in supporting our next
generation of leaders to feel strong, aware, and confident
in helping make the world a place of respect and dignity
