I covered a class for their recess, and they were pretty rambunctious because it was raining and we couldn’t go out. I showed them how to do the [Starfish] breathing from Pure Edge, Inc., and they ALL calmed down. It was amazing. The teacher came in the middle of it and stated she is going to use that. I was so excited!
The multifaceted impacts of mindfulness. I really can use it in every area of my job and personal life.
[The most valuable part was] Learning how mindfulness and breathing/brain breaks are helpful to students who have experienced childhood trauma. The emotional effects of this type of practice on these students is so positive and will help them feel less isolated and out of control.
Thank you for the time changes to accommodate Pre-K schedules! Also, the 15 group time is perfect. Love the fun movement and breathing exercises. Thank you!
Everything you shared has made me realize that human connection is the key to establishing a positive relationship with students and a way to teach them self-awareness
I have learned so much from this training. From the scientific aspect of this all, the social emotional statistics of learning, to the exercise, sequences, and brain breaks. Love it all!!!
I was more stressed, and strategies worked more than I had imagined.
I felt relaxed each time I did the breathing exercises.
This training changed my life.
I am serving as Public Health Peace Corps Volunteer and have been using Pure Edge sequences and posture guides since I first arrived to Mongolia…I started all of my health classes with breathing exercises … this club has turned into one of the most meaningful parts of my Peace Corps service, and I just wanted to say thank you for giving me access to your materials because without them I never would have the confidence to start this group.
As we care for the social, emotional #SEL AND cultural #CRSE needs of our children we know that teaching #SocialJustice and #Liberation is healing. #freedom brings #joy @TMALowerSchool @NYCSchools @District5NYC @1ManhattanTeam https://twitter.com/TMALowerSchool/status/1406205995181907970
