Why us

An important early learning experience

Understanding how emotions impact our physical experience means we notice our automatic reactions to frustration, fear, anxiety or stress faster.

Making it a part of our learning as children means an entire life of better in-the-moment decision making, health and resilience.

Holistic approach

A whole body approach uses education and skills that manipulate the body to increase mental and emotional resilience.

Health Advocacy

Our education and exercises focus on spreading the knowledge that leads to greater health equity and better long term health outcomes.


Early learning means parents build these skills into a child's natural language and understanding of how the body connects to the mind.



Our nervous system focused programs are made for 3rd-12th grades and feature basketball or yoga. They are played in public school physical education classes or in after school programming.



Our maternal services focus on early screenings, resources and services that decrease maternal mortality for our community's most at-risk mothers.


Online Education

Our roots are in educating parents and learning from the best therapists, parenting experts and psychologists.
