Brain Power Wellness is an awesome tool that I brought to my school to shift the way we address providing a supportive environment for our students. In our second year of implementation we are excited to have empowered our student leaders to drive this valuable program school-wide.

Not one day has passed since that I have not engaged in some form of wellness thanks to the tools Brain Power Wellness provided me with to truly take care of myself – physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially – to be able to carry out the awesome responsibility of leading an entire school community.

For me personally, it strengthened me to go back into my classroom, and what I loved is the ability to empower my students to become Leaders in their own right, to own their own energy, their own direction, their actions, and that for me is one of the most powerful things I can do for my students to help them become future Leaders and also successful at the end of their educational journey.

As Teachers we need to refill our gas tank, and this workshop was the perfect opportunity for me to feel good and get energy so I can spread what I have learned to the staff and parents. It’s like shining some really bright light on the school. Teachers work so hard, I want to give them tools to take care of themselves and their students. The mindfulness and gratitude training and everyone working together was an amazing experience. I am feeling really awesome right now!

Deep breathing and other activities learned from Brain Power are part of all my parent workshops. It has been an inspiration for me to notice how the mindset of parents shifted from hesitation to appreciation of how empowering the activities are.
