Cindy Teeto, founder of 1 Breath At A Time, spent her career in early childhood education. Her formal training and passion lie in working with kids from ages 18 months old to seven years. As a kindergarten teacher in the Broward County Public School, the sixth-largest district in the United States, and later a teacher at the prestigious, private Mailman Segal Center at Nova Southeastern University, Cindy began to incorporate the teaching of age-appropriate meditation, breathwork, yoga and mindfulness to her classes. She soon learned that not only did the kids truly need these types of activities, but they loved them.
Not only were the fun, but they brought noticeable benefits. The young children began to master age-appropriate coping skills like longer attention span, more positive social interactions and increased impulse control.
She knew she was on to something amazing.
