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.

For Educators

The Take a Breath program allows educators to quickly and easily cultivate calm in the classroom. This is a passive program which means the educator or counselor experiences the deep relaxation right along with the students, rather than having another thing to do.

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.

For Parents

Recordings are available on the website for parents and their children to practice relaxation and self-regulation at home. Parents will recognize the benefits of B.R.A.V.E. to support their whole family in times of challenge. They will sense the shifts and encourage even more participation by their children, in the classroom and at home. In addition to the specific recordings for parents on the website, Take a Breath workshops are also available for parent meetings.
