As coaches, we are always looking for that extra edge for our players. Having Erica come in and work with our teams has helped give us that extra edge. Erica has not only helped us recover faster physically by working us out, she has also helped train our players minds by strengthening their focus and discipline.
I'm a firm believer that the Eagles making it to the Sectional Finals during her first year working with us was no coincidence. If you want to take your team to another level, I would highly recommend having Erica Ebert work with your team and program. You will not be disappointed!

Through my personal practice, under Erica’s guidance, I've developed an understanding of my physical and emotional responses to external events. The awareness of, and attention to, these responses has helped me to develop skills to begin to better manage these feelings in a way that maximizes my emotional health and productivity.
As an educator, I am passionate about the emotional growth of my students. Erica provides mindfulness instruction to my students so that they, at a very early age, can begin to practice strategies to promote self-awareness. I have seen five-year-olds become able to identify things that distract their learning and utilize strategies that refocus their attention on the learning task at hand.
By teaching these skills to very young learners, I hope these strategies will become second nature, as well as empowering tools, as these students encounter challenges throughout their journey.

Erica is a skilled teacher who brings humor into the powerful teaching of mindfulness. Her trainings are inspiring, empowering and transformational. They're aligned with what we want want to develop in our administrators, teachers and, most importantly, our students.

We brought her to Honeoye to talk with our student athletes, parents and coaches about the impact that Mindfulness can have on athletic performance. I was recently on a planning committee for the Section V Student Athlete Leadership Training conference and the topic centered around Mental Health Awareness. I knew that Erica would be the perfect fit for one of our keynote addresses.
Her delivery is anecdotal and humorous and the message is one that every athlete and coach should hear!

Whether she is facilitating a keynote for larger groups or small breakout sessions, Erica combines her mindfulness expertise with genuine, relatable storytelling and perfectly timed humor to engage and inspire both students and staff of all ages.
