Feedback from parents and kids. 

  • Awesome and calming meditations that can soothe the rowdiest kids

“Issi is soooooooo amazing at mindfulness. I used to be extremely restless at night and wake up hundreds of times a night and now I am able to have a calm night without worrying about things in the past or future or both! Issi has taught me so much of useful information such as the states of ‘ theta ‘ ‘ alta ‘ ‘beta’ and ‘ delta’. I used to be living in the ‘ beta ‘ state and now i’m more of a ‘ alta, theta ‘ person. Thank you Issi for making me a calmer person.” Student

  • Excellent
"Isabelle's meditation classes have been wonderful for my son who has been dealing with anxiety around bedtime. She has taught him how to breathe correctly as well as how to relax his mind and body through her beautiful meditations. I would thoroughly recommend her classes as they are beneficial to all children."- Parent
