"We believe a single breath can transform a moment."
UB.U creates social transformation in our youth giving each child tools for understanding their bodies and their minds. UB.U teaches children and young adults to recognize the power of "the pause" and discover the courage to question the impact of their choices and actions, resulting in inspired responses versus automatic reactions. At UB.U, we believe a single breath can transform a moment.
Over the last decade or more, we have seen a tremendous need to address social emotional wellness, resilience and character development in schools. UB.U has experienced first hand, the pressures kids face from peers, parents, teachers and even of themselves. In school, this translates to anxiety, aggressive behavior, bullying and even mental health concerns. Academics often tend to suffer due to this emotional stress. To inspire resilience and relaxation, UB.U programming centers on the powerful connection between the brain, the body and the breath. In this mindful space, UB.U shows students how to stay present, recognize emotion, trust themselves and strengthen character.
UB.U believes this lifelong practice illuminates new pathways for responding to emotion and challenge, expanding personal perspective, and elevating communities.
