What is Calm Classroom Direct Service?
Calm Classroom Direct Service is a training model that provides ongoing mindfulness-based professional development for educators via interactive virtual workshops.
Our direct service model empowers educators to nurture the Calm Classroom program throughout the school year while also developing mindfulness and resilience skills as a school community. Our workshops strengthen the connection among educators by creating a space for discussion, reflection and self-care.

Why Mindfulness in the Classroom?
Mindfulness is a foundational skill that can help students and teachers reduce stress and anxiety, increase mental and emotional well-being, and engage more fully in the learning environment. Mindfulness is our ability to pay attention to our present moment thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and surrounding environment with a kind and open attitude.
