Our Mission

Body

Through wellness exercises, we teach mindful movement.

Breath

Through the power of breath, we teach the ability to calm the nervous system, increase impulse control, identify stressful situations and develop coping strategies.

Mind

Through studying the brain, we teach the skill of focus and increase the ability to learn.

Attention

Through the sequence of breathe - move - rest, we teach the ability to focus in a coherent direction and specific state of mind.

Engagement

Through the achievement of mindful focus, we teach the ability to self-regulate and make good decisions.

Pure Edge, Inc. believes that all students deserve to be taught strategies to help combat stress and develop social, emotional, and academic learning competencies with an open heart and an open mind.

We Support Scholars

We offer a set of strategies that guide scholars to achieve success through focus based upon Five Principles of Health and Wellness:

Body
Breath
Mind
Attention
Engagement

We Support Schools

We provide a range of easily accessible open educational resources (OER) & professional development options that include self-care of staff, daily classroom integration of brain breaks, health and wellness curriculum, and other resources that promote social, emotional, and academic development.  We also provide grant funding to systems that thoughtfully integrate a culture of care and compassion for our most vulnerable youth.

We Support Research

We partner with research institutions across the country. Through these partnerships, we continue to learn about, support, and improve the quality of our programs. Since 2011, research teams have studied the implementation and outcomes of our health and wellness courses within school settings.  Early evidence supports that our programs are helping scholars achieve success through focus.
