WHAT EDUCATORS SAY

During my thirty-five year career as a public school teacher and administrator no other course, workshop, or seminar has been more beneficial. The tools provided in the course greatly enhanced my ability to manage the stress I encountered while working as a teacher and administrator. I highly recommend this course for educators.

I appreciate the educator’s course very much and I think it was a great opportunity to learn about and develop coping skills for stressful situations. I have incorporated the breathing exercises into my daily routine.

Its been a rich experience. The breathing was amazing. I need the Power Breath in my class, I need that energy, I need it for myself and the students. I find its a great way to start the day. Coming here every day has given me the security, knowing that I set the tone for the children and for myself… As an educator, I think it has given the children an opportunity to reflect on what changes that can take place in their lives. For example, some of the children in my class have a self-control problem, now they stop and they think. One of the students had an incident the other day with another student and right away he recognized that his anger button had been pushed. He said to me, “Ms, Peres, I know my anger button was pushed and I am working on it”. Even identifying that a button has been pushed is a huge thing, and then being able to make amends and to make changes according, it makes a huge difference. So for these students it has had a positive impact. For other students who are at a different level, they can continue. As some of them have told me, “I want to be a better person, I want to have more friends, I want to share, I want to care more”.
