With the increased stressors of our modern day lives, the need for mindfulness is paramount. Students are lacking in social emotional strategies and in our ever changing, fast paced world of technology these skills need to be practiced. Students, as well as adults need to be taught techniques that will slow down our rapid pace of life and will empower them with stress reduction and impulse control skills. With researched benefits like the following, we all could use some daily mindfulness practice!
This program combines elements of mindfulness and yoga in order to give students skills to be successful both inside and outside of the classroom. Using examples connected to nature and the world around them, weekly lessons are fun and educational, all while supplementing existing PBIS and RTI approaches.
Designed with the individual needs of the teachers and schools in mind, this training is offered in a variety of different ways. Whether directed toward a general mindfulness overview, personal teacher implementation, or used to focus on classroom behavior modification and RTI, we can design a training that fits any need.
Leaders who are mindful tend to be more effective in understanding and relating to others and motivating them toward shared goals. Our programs offer a mindful leadership and organizational assessment, trainings and an implementation plan that is designed specifically for your business or organization.
Mindfulness is the practice of living in the present moment. It is a way of looking at life without judgement and noticing our personal reactions to anything we encounter. Mindfulness can be practiced in many different ways; through controlled breathing exercises, thought shifting, emotional awareness, introspection, compassion and more. Mindfulness has been scientifically proven to lower stress levels and improve overall physical health.
With the need for and proactive intervention, along social emotional education for students, MindfullyU assists schools in turning theory into practice. Students and teachers are faced with daily stressors and these stressors impact neurological, emotional and physical wellbeing, as well as executive function. As educators rethink the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to thrive in our fast-changing society, it is opportune to consider other life skills that can contribute to wellbeing, resilience, academic, and life success. Numerous studies have pointed to the efficacy of mindfulness to help with multiple mental and physical problems such as anxiety, stress, pain, attention-deficit hyperactivity, and mood disorders. In addition, recent studies have also indicated the success of mindfulness in contributing to academic achievement and a higher emotional IQ.
Mindful students show less test anxiety, better impulse control and overall improved behavior.
Mindfulness teaches our brains to react to “distress” not “perceived stress”. Mindful individuals are more relaxed and enjoy a higher quality of life.

Better Emotional Regulation
Thank you Daisy! You came to talk with us about mindful leadership and I have walked away with a new personal practice that has shifted my thinking and stress.
Not only do our meetings run more smoothly and we actually spend less time debating but I look forward to them now!
MindfullyU Yoga not only taught me to quiet my mind, but I actually improved my swimming times!
I became so interested in yoga through the MindfullyU program that I have now completed my yoga instructor training. I am excited to share all of my skills with other high school students!
Yoga has taught me to control my thoughts and focus on the present. It has given me confidence to try things that I didn’t think I could ever do!
I love that I got to learn math in a different way and explore stuff.
I loved math camp, can I come back next year?
Mindfulness is more than just breathing. It is a way of being aware in your life. Things that I didn’t think about before, like how what I say to others makes an impact, I think about now. Now I think before I speak!
It has been 4 months since you taught me about breathing. I use it every day and I feel more calm and in control. It is something that I will use the rest of my life. Thank you!
Nobody ever talked to me about my emotions, I didn’t realize that stress is just what we perceive! I have learned some valuable techniques for reducing my stress.
