Meryem Yildiz, Mindfulness Instructor and Coach

About me

I’m a mindfulness instructor and coach, teaching mindfulness to students, teachers and parents in school-and private settings.


I first encountered with mindfulness in 2011, in the most difficult and challenging time of my life. I had lost my younger sister of cancer. I was desperately looking for ways to deal with my painful emotions. After I did a fundamentals course on mindfulness and started practicing it regularly, I was soon able to find to my centre again. It was such a transforming and empowering experience, I knew that this was my new path to go. Thus, I decided for the Curriculum Training of Mindful Schools and as soon as I had completed it, I started teaching Mindfulness  to 3rd and 4th graders at the German School in Ankara, Turkey.  It was a great experience. I could witness the positive impact and the meaningful change in the kids, including my own twin daughters.

Mindfulness based Coaching:

In 2014 we moved to Berlin, Germany, I first completed the certified coaching education, specialised for kids and teens. In 2018 I started studying Social Work at the Alice Salomon Hochschule. Since August 2018 I'm teaching 8. graders mindfulness at a secondary school in Berlin. I’m integrating coaching into my mindfulness teachings to kids, teachers and parents.
