BASH is a program that helps educate children in how they can adopt simple strategies to improve their brain fitness.
Children are exposed to their own unique stressors - bullying, peer pressure, grades and distractions are some of the most common.
There is very little information that children or adults are exposed to that help them understand what it is to be brain fit and why it is important.
This program educates children and teens on the concepts of brain fitness with simple, easy to understand tools that can be used immediately. These concepts can be practiced repeatedly throughout the day.
Brain fitness can help build resilience and gives children IMMEDIATE coping skills for NOW and for their future.
This program, with it's coaching style, engages kids to participate, share their experiences and practice the principles of BASH during the session. When the breath part of BASH is performed during an event, you will feel the energy of the whole room shift!
With regular practice, kids can become more tolerant, happier and feel more in control of their problems.
This program is adaptable to elementary level school kids, middle schools and teens.
