Practicing mindfulness in the classroom with your students can help improve their cognitive performance, attention and creativity.
Our Mindfulness course is rooted in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), which is an eight-week evidence-based form of mindfulness. Our Mindfulness course allows students to target and improve not only their emotional regulation and mindful awareness, but also their overall well-being.

Mindfulness helps with skills related to social emotional learning (SEL) such as: self-management, self-awareness and social awareness. SEL is part of the core school curriculum and is integral to success in daily life; thus, the relationship between mindfulness and SEL should be utilized in classrooms.
We encourage you to make mindfulness a part of the daily routine in your classroom and have made it easy for you to do so. Since it checks off some of the school curriculum and has proven positive results in your students, it’s a no brainer!
