Wellness Champion Testimonials

"I just wanted to thank your program for teaching me so much about myself, breathing and yoga. I also wanted to say thanks for providing us with the Breathe For Change manual. I am using it with my high school PE class. The teaching cues are even helping students teach other students... Your program is amazing!"

- Josh (High School PE Teacher)

"Breathe For Change is a revolutionary program that really will change the world. After participating in the program, I felt empowered, reinvigorated, inspired and ready to create real change in schools!"

- Bridget (Middle School Social Worker)

Breathe For Change filled my bucket... Your new sense of presence, self-compassion, and gratitude, will spread a bright light towards all the people you love and come into contact with. Educators will leave refreshed, and feel like a first year teacher on their first day. This program is the best gift you can give yourself, your family, friends and your community."
