“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 217.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing! I've done a lot of things in my time and without a doubt, Resilience Advantage was one of the best training courses of all time. When I say "life-changing," I really mean it. The Heart Coherence practice is not only changing me, it has completely changed the focus, approach, and trajectory of my business and relationships, and as a result, is changing my life. It's so much better already that I can't imagine how good it's going to get! The trainers are excellent. The materials provided for implementation and success are remarkable (and unbelievable in the best way). The experience of being immersed in a heart-focused space with like-hearted people for five straight days is one I will carry with me. While I had been pretty stressed about the teach-back days, I am beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to learn, teach, and be supported in a group that way. It was just a great experience all around. Thank you, HeartMath!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tools to make a more coherent world The training is science-based and truly immersive. You learn with your cohort, from mentors, and from your own personal experiences with the tools and techniques how much emotions drive our psycho-physiological states. The training gives you improved self awareness and coherence, the ability to share that knowledge with others meaningfully, and links you to so many other likeminded professionals around the world. Amazing!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Dynamic Program! Participating in the HeartMath Certified Trainer’s Program deeply enhanced the depth of my understanding of the heart’s intelligence through witnessing the team modelling and explaining Resilience Advantage exercises and practices while all the while inviting and facilitating our teaching and learning, as participants in the program. Throughout the program, I was able to discover innovative ways to share the exercises and practices with those I encounter in my work in education as we creatively respond in a rapidly changing, complex world. At the end of the program, we were offered an invaluable library of resources and a supportive community with whom we will be able to continue to interact for which I am grateful. The program was a lively, transformative event for me personally and professionally – a great find!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full Circle I left the field of teaching because I did not have the skills to self regulate my nervous system. My journey to heal was circuitous but through the Resilient Advantage training program, I am being called back to the classroom to help my fellow teachers with HeartMath tools. Thank you HeartMath for your commitment to share these scientifically proven yet simple techniques for emotional, mental and physical health.
