The Science Behind Our Program

Children with a toned vagal nerve are more resilient, more empathetic, calm, and focused. Breathwork, movements, vocal toning, and other techniques known to build resiliency are taught each week. 

Link to HeartMath – HeartMath practices are incorporated throughout the 8 weeks. Sonja Fritts became a certified HeartMath instructor in 2018.
