“The Inner-Ease™ technique is working really well. People feel like they are in a hurricane, so they relate to being the ‘eye of the storm.’ They are being pulled in too many different directions. Inner-Ease is the tool they can relate to the most.”

What Trainers are Saying

HeartMath Certified Trainer Program is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 202.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE POWER TO CHOOSE MY WELL-BEING Understand the fundamentals of the Heartmath Techniques by becoming aware of my emotions and my free choice to choose those that expand me together with my attention focused on my breathing through my heart. I appreciate how simple and powerful they are to achieve my internal transformation towards an experience of greater peace that can influence creating a more harmonious environment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality experience I was curious about how the training would unfold being online, and I was so impressed by the organization and the perfect pace of it all. Such knowledgable trainers and interesting people. The training was really a high quality experience. It is really thought out to help you integrate the learning to a deeper level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing in so many ways. I undertook the Resilience Advantage Training so I could be certified by The HeartMath Institute to deliver the Resilience Advantage Course to large organisations in Australia. It was delivered by teachers who care, are knowledgeable, committed to the HeartMath ethos and really modelled what they they were teaching. I loved meeting people from all around the world, and enjoyed the group work during the course. The pre-course preparation was meticulous, as it was all logically organised on the website to access when convenient. You were also allocated a mentor who called you 4 times prior to the course, to help you in areas where you needed assistance and further consolidate the HeartMath tools and techniques. The format of the course was well organised, interesting and I felt supported in every aspect prior to and during the course. At the conclusion of the course you have a huge amount of support in terms of marketing the course and how to deliver the course. The Institute of HeartMath have invested a huge amount of effort into producing what I think is a world class program, ie the Reslience Advantage. I feel privileged that I now certified to deliver it and know that it will help many people to improve their relationships, energy, resilience, and performance. I highly recommend the course, what it stands for, how it's delivered. Chenelle Hitchcock BA Education
