Rosenwaldhof Centre near Berlin and Potsdam.
(Accessible by public transport from all Berlin airports and the Central Train Station)
November 2018 – June 2020
The international MBSR-Training in Berlin offers a compact format of four weeks in 1,5 years.
It is the IMA’s response to the many requests we have received from the international community to present our highly successful training program in a format that makes it accessible for people living in all parts of Europe and around the world. It is also our answer to requests from people living in countries where no program is offered.
Berlin is easy to reach, with many direct flights from major cities. As a cosmopolitan city at the center of Europe, it is a lively and culturally rich place to visit. The seminar house is a lovely yoga center in a country landscape a short distance outside the city, reachable by public transport from airport and central train station.
Who Might Be Interested in that program?
- Trainees who are interested in a certificate-level training that is compact, clearly structured, and transparent in terms of requirements, certification process, etc.
- Our program is in a cohort group structure (the same students attend each time). Unlike many programs with different participants each time, our program develops an MBSR teacher community that extends far beyond the end of the IMA program.
- Our groups are limited to 26 participants. This allows a more personal atmosphere as well as the opportunity for more intensive interaction between faculty and students. We have committed to quality, rather than quantity
- The IMA’s program is viable and accessible for people from countries where no MBSR teacher training is offered.
- For those persons living in Germany, Switzerland or Austria, who do not speak German well and cannot participate in our German-language programs.
- For people who like to study in an international context and wish to establish network contacts with participants outside their own country.
