Power Brain Education is a unique combination of Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness and Brain Games. It is designed to develop the full potential of the human brain in both adults and children.
PBE is taught in 1000s of schools worldwide including the UK, the USA and South Korea, where it originated.
These sessions draw from traditional health practices in both Western and Eastern cultures, including influence from contemporary neuroscience research and techniques to maximise individual body development (co-ordination, strength, awareness), emotional regulation (anxiety, stress, self image) and social awareness.
Delivered by facilitator Anna-Lisa Drew, who is developing a specialism in working with ASC children and young people, and also has a background in the art psychotherapy profession with experience in mainstream and SEN education, psychiatric units and hospices.

We offer a 10-15 week programme that focuses on a different theme every week. Typically it begins by developing physical health and body awareness including healthy eating, it then focuses on the brain structure and exercises to develop neuroplasticity and intergrating hemispheres. Next it involves identifying and managing emotions, developing creative thinking and summarises with confidence development, team building and leadership. The programme can be adapted to a specific school or class’s needs. For example developing the ability to focus, emphasising numeracy skills or developing intrapersonal relationships. Some theme titles include: ‘I Can Do It!’, ‘Working Together’, ‘My Amazing Brain’ and ‘I Have a Dream!’

During the classes children will learn and gain:
Physical strength and vitality, balance and flexibility
More confidence
A harmonious left/right brain hemisphere development
How to work in a team, care and help one another and the world around them
Breathing and relaxation techniques
Emotional self-control
Increased focus and dedication to whatever they are engaged with
The ability to relax
Being more patient with themselves and others.

We believe every young person has intrinsic value in society and aim to cultivate the best in them so that they can take ownership of their experience of life and contribute to the world. We aim to provide young people with the tools to be able to make the best decisions and to be strong enough to live their lives to their fullest; managing stress and challenges arising every day. We believe it is vital that our kids grow up to be caring, mindful and creative individuals.  Our training helps young people realise their own importance, gain more confidence, reduce their limitations, set goals for the future, achieve their dreams and simply have fun doing so!
