FOUNDER & LEADER
Hi, I'm Krista Inochovsky the creator and empowerment coach of M:POWERED. As the mom of two teens, I see first hand the challenges and stresses teens are under. I see great kids who are up to big things who would benefit from the mindfulness practices I've been teaching entrepreneurs, parents, and professionals for years.
The more you can understand how your emotions and brain works, the more you can feel in control to be a powerful creator of your life.
I'm excited to meet you, help you see the best of yourself, and inspire you to be "powered by mindfulness!"
The most successful people in business today have a mindfulness practice. M:POWERED founder, Krista Inochvosky shares why.
WHAT STUDENTS SAY
WHAT PARENTS SAY
My daughter loves coming to class every week. She wants to join the next series too! She is more confident with her daily routuine and handles the stress of school with ease. Thank you, Krista guiding our girls on these tricky topics.
My daughter found a safe place to open up her heart & talk about any kind of problem and learn how to deal with them with less or no anxiety. She is more confident with her daily routine, is making
new friends and telling her dad & me how she feels.
I see my daughter opening up and having more confidence already. She is excited to come to the class each week. She is shy and introverted. Working with Krista & talking with the girls is really
good for her.
TEENS ARE STRESSED OUT!
According to the latest research from the American Psychological Association, teens report higher levels of stress than adults do (at least during the school year). And almost half of teens say they’re not doing enough to manage their stress. In fact, the two most common “strategies” teens use to cope with stress are playing video games and surfing the Internet.
All teens experience some amount of stress, and some stress can even be healthy. Many teens, however, struggle with significant stress levels that interfere with learning, relationships, and other areas of functioning. Stress can manifest in different ways, and some symptoms of stress mimic normal teen behavior. To that end, stress can sneak up on teens.
MINDFULNESS IS POWERFUL
Mindfulness (present-moment, nonjudgmental awareness) is a powerful tool that teens can use to manage their stress. Research indicates that when teens consistently practice mindfulness, it lowers rates of anxiety and depression, and leads to better sleep, stronger relationships, and increased self-awareness, all of which can go a long way toward ameliorating the impact of stress.
HOW MINDFULNESS HELPS
Teenagers want to know "what's in for me." Meditation is an important tool taught in M:POWERED classes. Here are some research findings to share with your teens:
Studies show that students who meditate before an exam perform better than students who do not
Meditation helps improve performance on standardized tests
Meditation can improve concentration
Meditation can help with anxiety, stress, overwhelm and depression
Meditation improves focus and concentration so teens can focus on homework and perform better on exams
Mediation helps with self-esteem and memory, reduces blood pressure and heart rate, and helps balance the immune system
