BeWell in School – Mindfulness and Motion-Based Stress Reduction
Riki Rattner, Founder and Director
Riki Rattner, Founder and Director of BeWell, who highlights their efforts around mindfulness and motion-based stress reduction, where it started and the impact now being realized, tips for parents and educators, and how the community can get involved.
BeWell in School teaches mindfulness and movement as a proactive behavior management system. We provide an alternative approach to traditional discipline by teaching effective strategies for self-regulation. Our mission is to provide students with the tools they need to be successful in the classroom, and beyond, by making wellness strategies available to all.
We’ve partnered with Warner Arts Magnet Elementary School in East Nashville, Tennessee for our Program. We lead Professional Development sessions with teachers and school staff to help strengthen self-care strategies so they are better able to help students manage emotions and self-regulate.
