The RESET Initiative, (Respiratory Exercises for Social Emotional Teaching) is a dynamic, daily seven-minute program designed by Dr. Joseph Michael Levry that combines breathing, movement and vocal exercises to help young students maximize their capacity to learn, be creative and achieve a state of calm attentiveness. Taught together, these exercises produce sustained, positive emotional and physiological results in and outside the classroom.
The RESET Initiative was originally released in Mexico City, and is lauded by parents and teachers for its tangible effects on children’s mental and emotional health. This powerful and effective program is currently expanding in the United States and beyond, with plans to bring this technique to people worldwide in hospitals, recovery and domestic violence centers, as well as into the corporate world. The goal is to expand partnerships worldwide to empower people with dynamic breathing techniques, sound and movement to transition from a state of overstimulation and reactiveness to empowered and effective responsiveness. All of us have been deeply affected by upheaval in our world; the RESET Initiative provides the opportunity to strengthen the immune and nervous systems and build physical health while improving mental and emotional resilience. Those who regularly engage in this practice are refreshed, renewed and refocused. The RESET Initiative gives the opportunity to do just that – to reset and connect back to a core state of being that is healthy, peaceful and openhearted.
