The International Meditation Teachers & Therapists Association

Careers for IMTTA Accredited Meditation Teachers & Therapists


The IMTTA program has been designed to provide a fully supported career path for people who wish to follow their passion for healing and develop their own holistic wellbeing practice. 

The training courses provide intensive, very practical, knowledge and encourage the development of each student’s previous professional and life experience, along with their innate abilities as natural healers. 

Self-empowerment is the keystone at the IMTTA. We believe that real healing and personal growth can only occur when people are provided with the knowledge, tools and encouragement they need to heal themselves.

Therefore, all of the modalities we offer are self-empowering therapies where practitioners teach their students and clients how to make the changes required for better health and more happiness, for themselves. 

These modalities include Meditation, which now has strong scientific evidence to support the enormous healing potential of regular practice.

We also teach:
Chair Yoga
Self-Applied Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy
Holistic Counselling (and life coaching)
Brain Body Medicine
Holistic Integrated Creative Arts Therapy
Autonomic Nervous System Realignment Therapy.

All powerful therapies that once learned, can be applied by every person, on and for themselves regardless of age, sex, cultural or socioeconomic background, religious or spiritual path, lifestyle or present state of health; whenever needed, wherever they are and without cost or the need for another person to facilitate their healing.

Truly self-empowering modalities where we, as holistic practitioners, are in fact teachers, providing skills and tools that our clients can take forward in life to use for themselves to improve every aspect of their lives. 

Some IMTTA graduates choose to seek employment with a variety of organizations from holistic healthcare centres to recreation facilities and work as Chair Yoga Instructors, Meditation Teachers, Stress Management Consultants and Holistic Counsellors. Some have secured employment in mainstream doctors clinics and as regular facilitators in schools.

The vast majority choose to set up and run their own Holistic Wellbeing Practices and these practices are as diverse as the individuals who own them. 

Some choose to open Meditation Schools and run a variety of Meditation classes that appeal to a broad cross section of the community. They may incorporate Holistic Counselling sessions and Corporate Stress Management workshops. They may also run specialized classes for particular groups (like prenatal couples or children’s Meditation classes.) 

Some practitioners have a particular area of interest, like working with:
Young people
Women in transition
People suffering from panic and depression
People managing chronic pain or seeking to heal from illness and disease
People with weight issues
People seeking to overcome trauma or abuse

The possibilities are endless and every IMTTA Practitioner is encouraged to develop the holistic practice they feel drawn to and passionate about. 

The IMTTA Practitioner registration (which is included free for all IMTTA course graduates for the first year) is a valuable tool, which provides graduates with a great deal of support and guidance in setting up and managing their own holistic wellbeing practice. 

Our Practitioner Manager is available via email and telephone to provide information and encouragement whenever our practitioners need it.

This could be brainstorming ways to attract more students and clients to their practice and increase their income. It could be discussing strategies for supporting the practitioners own students or clients or it could be debriefing after a particularly difficult class or holistic counselling session. 

We know our practitioners. We listen to what they need and we love to share their enthusiasm and their success with them.

We connect with them daily through our exclusive IMTTA Practitioners social media group and send them monthly newsletters.

We organize group marketing activities like advertising campaigns to make promoting themselves on a bigger scale much more affordable. We even provide them with all the templates for the materials they need to run their businesses from marketing materials through to student handouts, disclaimer forms and booking forms, class plans and guide booklets.

So, while our Practitioners are working for themselves, with all the benefits of self-employment, free to choose the career paths and lifestyles they want, they are never alone. 

Once a year we hold the IMTTA Gathering over four days as a residential retreat on Queensland’s beautiful Sunshine Coast, in Australia and welcome practitioners from all over the world to participate in an inspiring and informative collection of professional and personal development workshops and postgraduate training courses. Attendance is not compulsory. In 2018 we are holding a special Practitioner Gathering over 10 days, in India!

The IMTTA study courses are designed to provide a very practical training experience and you can read what some of our past students have to say about their experiences HERE. 

The material you will study through the IMTTA training courses will assist you to create a useful portfolio of resources and tools you can use to set up and run your own Holistic Wellbeing Business, without having to reinvent the wheel and with globally recognized accreditation.

As you can see, the IMTTA offers much more than a selection of well recognized training courses.

We offer you a career path to assist you in making your vision a reality and we help you to create the career and lifestyle you want for yourself, every step of the way, regardless of which IMTTA registered training organization you choose to study with, on-line or on-campus, anywhere in the world.

Helping you realize your passion, truly is our passion.
