How We Work With Schools and Communities

kids

We Create a Culture of Wellbeing

Take a Breath implements Social Emotional Learning with a strategic, systematic approach using academic and personal performance enhancement, or perhaps tools to manage an imbalance.  Special Groups or the Community can also use these same tools. Sports teams, the arts, or a social group can develop a shared commitment and connection while supporting the collective well-being of the group.

We Create Calm in the Classroom

 

It only takes a short 3-minute recording to shift out of a stress response.  With our library full of general and specialized recordings, there are limitless opportunities to support a classroom, group or an individual who may be struggling. Take a Breath is ideal for students who need extra support, in a breakout/calm room, for a class nervous about an academic subject, or pending performance in sports or the arts.

We Create Support at Home and in the Community

Take a Breath reaches into every home and lifestyle. It is for young and old, the achiever and the individual falling behind or struggling.  Take a Breath creates an experience of authentic connection to oneself which cultivates inclusion and acceptance which are key to a healthy community.

Recordings are always available on the website to support the whole community, with a variety of recordings to address life away from school.  Additional communication skills and conversation support tools provide opportunities to develop parents' relationships with older students and parents in supporting the precious young ones.

What Our Community Says

Grade 7 Student

"Take a Breath made me feel relaxed and calm. In the beginning I felt shy and confused, but somewhere in the middle, I felt like I could do anything."

College Student

"Take a Breath gave me a break.  A break from the constant studying and overwhelm.  I felt rested and ready to return to the books!"

Educator

"The Take a Breath techniques teach students and educators how to focus on the breath, feel sensation and be present. I am excited to bring this to my own school as well as use with my own children at home. This practice can relate to all."

Parent

"Your program left a huge impression with my daughter as it was the first thing she told my wife and I when she got home. She was super excited about it. She said how she was told to close her eyes, think of her family, and to think of someone flying over them (she thought of me!) and to take deep breaths and just relax. Thank you so much for giving my child this opportunity.”
