Why Mindfulness in the Classroom??
Mindfulness helps students stay calm, manage stress, and focus on learning. In our test group, 81% of teachers who used Calm Classroom’s mindfulness-based tools and approach reported their students were calmer and more peaceful, and 74% said their students were more engaged. In addition, 71% of teachers said they used Calm Classroom’s mindfulness techniques outside of school to manage their own stress and emotions.
At Calm Classroom, we know that investing in mental health pays off for teachers and students alike. We developed this course to help educators make sustainable, long-lasting changes to their learning environment and reduce mental and emotional health issues in their classrooms. By incorporating mindfulness into your classroom, you can reduce stress and give your students the mental strength to focus on learning.

“This year my classroom is a lot more calm and focused. The idea of peace is what I needed all these years. My students are encouraging each other to stay calm in difficult moments. This year my students have less conflicts. Thank you Calm Classroom!”
"In the short time that I have been using Calm Classroom, I have seen the benefits on a daily basis for both students and staff. I wanted to thank you for putting together such an effective program that can be easily implemented in the classroom. Honestly, I think that this program could (and in my opinion should) be implemented in every classroom in this country."
"Calm Classroom has benefited my students because it gives us daily non-academic time to come together as a community. My students who lead Calm Classroom feel a sense of ownership when they lead the class. For most students, Calm Classroom is an excellent resetting that helps us get focused and ready to learn."
"I teach students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. To watch my students execute Calm Classroom is absolutely AMAZING! It REALLY helps them calm their frustrations and anxieties."
"Calm Classroom makes us calm as the sea. Our emotions go from wild like waves to still and peaceful. We learn to focus and concentrate through breathing. We just calm down."
"If more people did Calm Classroom they would think, 'What’s the point of killing each other? Let’s calm down and think about it, let’s be brothers and sisters.'"
