Students will benefit by increasing their physical power and mental power, as well as emotional regulation. Each class is designed to strengthen the body, balance brain function, and awaken latent brain potential. The classes are fun, engaging and help foster a sense of cooperation between the students.
One key to the success of Body & Brain for Kids training is that it utilizes a harmonious, collaborative learning environment co-created by healthy, happy, and engaged students along with the Body & Brain instructors. It helps develop children physically with yoga and tai chi training within an environment which places highest value on character development and social-emotional wellness.
Body & Brain for Kids training has helped children reach their highest potential in the NYC public schools; the state of New Mexico (with official recognition from the state legislature); El Salvador**, Liberia, as well as, transforming communities in many other US states and countries world-wide. Ramsey Body & Brain is proud to offer Body & Brain for Kids to the greater Ramsey/Mahwah community! Call us at 201-962-8383 for more information about this amazing program.

Since, then, because of the replicating efforts of the program’s participants, the number of beneficiaries and their health, social well-being and academic results keep growing.
Gloria, one of the principals who went through the program and sustained it well as a regular practice in her school, saw tremendous changes over the years. Her school was one of the most problematic schools in San Salvador. Her strength and courage are inspirational, bringing her all the way to Korea in 2013 to participate in a Convention on education and share her experience.
Here, she shares about her experience working with IBREA at her school, Joaquin Rodenzo, in the capital city of San Salvador:
