Sonja Roth

I founded MBSRjunior in 2017. I developed the course to make “mindfulness-based stress reduction” available for teens. As a mother of two teens I experienced in my own family how helpful and supportive it can be to apply mindfulness in everyday life to manage severe challenges but also to be simply healthier and happier.

I am a certified MBSR teacher (MBSR Ottawa) with special training to teach teenagers. I teach MBSR and mindfulness to adults in a community and health care setting. Apart from this I am engaged in leadership development (expedition raw) and a passionate coach ( I hold a Master’s degree in Education, I am a certified coach and registered with the Human Resources Professional Association as a CHRL (Certified Human Resources Leader).

Most important however is my love and dedication to work with people. As a long-time meditator and inspired by several retreats with Jon Kabat-Zinn and other profound teachers, I am motivated to make mindfulness available for everyone, to foster health, happiness and well-being.
