Brooke Campanelli is a Mindfulness facilitator for both kids and adults and has studied & practiced Mindfulness Mediation for over 10 years. She is the founder of Mindful Kids LA and is a trained Mindful Schools Educator. She currently teaches Mindfulness for kids/teens and adults at Soul Play Studio and Zooga Yoga in Los angeles. Her unique "Mindful Kids" Afterschool enrichment programs are taught at elementary schools in Los angeles and Pasadena. She also teaches Mindful Parenting and Secular Mindfulness Workshops for adults, private clients and Mindfulness for Sports teams throughout the LA area. Her weekly drop-in Meditation classes in Los Angeles are very well received.
Ten years ago Brooke came to this work thru her own personal suffering and discovered that through the skills she learned in practicing Mindfulness & Meditation, life became fuller, more present and joyful. Brooke is passionate about sharing this practice with other adults and children to reduce suffering in their own lives. In addition to her secular mindfulness training in the Mindful Schools K-12 Curriculum, for the past decade she has studied Buddhist Meditation, Self Compassion and Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPS). Her in-person studies at Insight LA, Against the Stream, UCLA, and with respected teachers such as Celeste Young, Trudy Goodman, George Mumford, Noah Levine and Judith Harrington provided her the foundations of her practice. Her on-going daily practice as well as studies of teachings from Tara Brach, Cheri Huber, Thich Nhat Hanh, Jon Kabat-Zinn & Sharon Salzberg deepen her teachings. She feels she is every bit a student as she is a teacher.
