ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Certified Koru Instructor, Robyn Kenney teaches this evidence-based curriculum that will enable you to master your emotions, better respond to difficult situations and perform under pressure.
Koru is proven to be a cost-effective, simple solution for people suffering from unmanageable levels of stress or performance anxiety. This course is tailored for parents, athletes and coaches.
WHAT DOES KORU MEAN?
Koru” is the New Zealand Māori word for the spiral shape of the unfurling baby fern leaf. The word literally means “looped” or “spiraled,” but the shape symbolizes harmony or balanced growth, representing layered growth around a stable center.
HOW KORU MINDFULNESS IMPACTS
Students reported feeling more calm
“I am worrying less and enjoying myself more since starting Koru. I’ve gotten better at staying focused in the present and I don’t feel so stressed all the time.”
Students improved their mindfulness
“I have found that mindfulness has pervaded my life. On and off I realize that my mind is spinning and it has become much easier for me to take some breaths and bring my mind back to the present.”
Students felt more rested
“It’s so much easier to fall asleep now that I have techniques for quieting my mind.”
Students had greater self-compassion
“Before I took Koru, I never noticed how much time I spent lost in negative thoughts about myself. I think the biggest taking Koru is I’m not so hard on myself any more. It makes everything a whole lot easier.”
As a stressed-out college student, I am so grateful that Koru has guided me towards a healthier mindset that will have lifelong effects.
Healthier mindset with lifelong effects.
