Welcome to our
Meditation + Mindfulness Certification Training

Do you have a passion for supporting the mental, emotional, and spiritual health of others? Do you envision yourself having deeper conversations, offering more a powerful service, guiding a group of individuals towards greater connection within themselves or within the relationships that they hold with each other? 

The practices of meditation and mindfulness are the #1 most necessary ingredient in making deep and sustainable changes for ourselves AND for those we serve. Otherwise...as the supporter, you simply become a crutch for those around you. 

The majority of people who've come into these trainings arrive as a result of feeling lost, confused, and even burnt-out. They WANT to be helpers, but don't know how to do it in a way that benefits both the student and the teacher, the client and the therapist, or even the child and the parent. But the good news is, this can change! 

Ready for your life to change?

I've NEVER been in the business of convincing. BUT, when WE lead the way, the teachings speak for themselves.

I've always believed that our heart knows the way- we just need to get the mind on board.

This training is for those who are ready to be the change:


Are you searching for the science, the research and the language to share the impact of meditation + mindfulness for those struggling with their mental health?


Are you looking for tools and resources that support the application and integration of mental health treatments such as: breathwork, plant medicine, or talk therapy?


Do you find yourself as a bit of a lone wolf, seeking a pack to learn, grow, and expand with?


Are you ready to go even deeper into your own learning, healing, and growth journey?

“My life has transformed substantially!”

I began my teacher training program while I was a nursing student in University. Shortly after I graduated, I was thrust into a chaotic environment as a trauma nurse. Between the shift-work and the high-stress nature of my job, I "should've" been struggling like many of my colleagues. However, I quickly applied what I learned from Mandy and am confident that I know how to better manage my own state as well as that of my patients.

— grace. m. toronto, on.

The unspoken truth..

We ALL struggle with mental illness...

Not unlike physical illness, mental illness can take us down for a day, a week, a month, or (if we aren't careful), a lifetime. The trick is not only in having the band-aids (yes..meditation CAN become a band-aid), but it is in knowing what's underneath the symptoms.

One of the things that makes this training different than many other meditation trainings is that we worry less about the HOW, and focus more on the WHY.

This training provides a depth of knowledge on what separates us from each other and from ourselves, and as a result, what creates the symptoms of anxiety and depression. 
When we understand the triggers that disconnect us, we can consciously employ the practices that reconnect us.

10 years and 3,000 students later, my heart explodes thinking of the ripple I have created.

Now it's your turn.

Gone are the days where we believed that the mind was in the brain and that the brain controlled the mind. During this module, you will learn more about the complexity of the mind: what it is, how it operates, and how to consciously transform your life and the lives of others, by changing the patterns of thought, belief, habits, and behaviors.

It would seem that it is no longer a lack of resources that people are struggling with these days, but the proper organization and application of those resources. In this module, we will dive into the ancient science of Ayurveda and it's undeniable relevance to our lives today. Through this lens, you will learn how to clearly identify and asses where others are at, as well as the appropriate strategies to support their health and wellbeing in both acute and chronic states.

"I just finished the Level 2 training as the pandemic hit. Within 2 weeks, I lost my job, my dad died of a heart attack, and I was isolated in my home. What I learned got me through it all. 18 months later, I am full-time with my previous company, but no longer working in accounting...now I am the Head of Mindfulness and Well-being!

“This was the best investment ever and I'm so glad I made it when I did!”



I have been a school teacher for 15 years and have been feeling soooo burnt out! The thing is, I didn't want to quit, but I didn't know what changes to make in order to create more ease and less stress in my classroom. After taking Level 1, I have implemented a few basic strategies that have made a world of difference for me and my students!

“I mean, there are basically no words! My work has totally changed!”



I'm Mandy, your teacher, sister, friend!

My knowledge comes from years of training (starting in Post Secondary with a specialization in Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology), followed by my Vedic Masters Education at Chopra University. But perhaps what helps me to be the best teacher I can be are the lessons learned while raising 3 kids, opening Canada's first mainstream meditation centre (not as peaceful as it would seem, lol! and navigating marriage for nearly 25 years!

Frequently Asked Questions

What prerequisites do I need in order to enrol?

It is required that you take our Foundations of Meditation + Mindfulness online training before starting the Certification Training. This usually takes students between 15-25 hours to complete.

What type of support will I receive from the Lifestyle Meditation Academy?

We're glad you asked! We are here to answer any questions that you have before, during, and after your training! Please don't hesitate to reach out!

What can I do with my training?

What can't you do might be a shorter answer!
Our teachers range from massage therapists, energy workers, social workers, school teachers, first responders, HR managers, parents, yoga teachers, mental health workers, and so much more! There is no shortage of where you can assert your knowledge and we dig into it during this training.

Are you accredited with the Yoga Alliance?

We get this question all the time and appreciate that many would love the CEC's. But for now, the Alliance doesn't recognize strictly meditation certifications (without a yoga school affiliation), but we have something else in the works!

Do you offer scholarships or discounts?

What if I can't make all of the sessions?

It is important to us that we look for roads to bring these trainings to sensitive communities that would not otherwise have access to such valuable information and healing modalities. Because of that, we reserve 2 spaces for each training (at a significantly discounted rate), that are offered to those who intend to work in these areas. If this feels like you, please send us an email and share your story support@mandytrapp.com

Please make sure that you check the dates BEFORE registering to ensure that you are available for as many of the LIVE online classes as possible. They will be recorded if you absolutely cannot attend but we ask that you arrange your schedule accordingly. 
For certification, it is required that you attend the retreat/practicum portion of the training. 

shoot me an email

I completely understand. Every dollar invested in yourself and your business is an important one! If there are any outstanding questions or you would like more support, we're here!
