Breathe For Teens Program - Aspen Real Life

Breathe For Teens Program

Founder of Intrinsic, Emily Hightower, in partnership with  Health and Human Performance Foundation, Brian MacKenzie, and local Aspen High School teacher, Cerena Thompson have created the Breathe For Teens Program, a novel stress reduction curriculum to help teenagers here at home
Here in Aspen, we seem to have it all, yet our teens suffer from the highest rates of anxiety and suicide in the nation for a town of our size. We also tend to make huge positive waves when we take something on and that is exactly what Founder of Intrinsic, Emily Lubchenco Hightower, is doing, in partnership with  Health and Human Performance Foundation, Brian MacKenzie, and local Aspen High School teacher, Cerena Thompson. Together they have created the Breathe For Teens Program, a novel stress reduction curriculum to help teenagers here at home that will also curate much-needed research in the field of youth stress management to help kids in public schools across the country.

Fund Breathe for Teens

Implementing a program of breath protocols to study their effects on CO2 Tolerance, stress, and anxiety, their research component needs funding to be completed and published. The experience our kids have will allow them to create and disseminate an evidence-backed curriculum to disseminate here and in public schools nation-wide.
You have a chance to help our youth today in a way that involves them with real research, and gives them the tools to manage anxiety for life. Please do what you can to pitch in. You can learn more about their team and their efforts by clicking here. 
Emily Hightower is also available to grab for a phone call or local visit to share more about where your money will go, and how these slow breathing protocols make a difference. Emily has personally shared these protocols with combat-wounded veterans at Challenge Aspen Military Opportunities since it began in 2006, and with trauma, recovery, and neurology patients across the valley and from around the world.

  1. This is needed more than ever. Our kids are struggling in the midst of COVID. Their entire world has been rocked – social life shut down – no school, no sports, etc. Almost every rite of passage is disrupted. Thank you Emily!

#4 ASPEN BUSINESS CONNECT REAL PROFILES WITH LEX LUCIUS, Artist, Designer. www.instagram.com/tv/CKfp_c0lwjl/From our blog: "For the past decade, I have been the sole fabricator of the Herbert Bayer estate sculptures....The resulting works that I created have been placed in private collections and corporate locations throughout the country, including two monumental works recently installed across from The Mall of America in Minneapolis, MN. The work of bringing Bayer’s models to the public continues in my new location in Basalt, where I am working on midsize versions that may one day be realized on a monumental scale. I am also working on my own painting and sculpture and would enjoy fabricating for other valley artists. My studio is open to visitors by appointment.

Let me tell you what it’s like living with these mountains outside our window.I sit and meditate to their energy and receive messages to keep going on my path. To persevere.When I am on the phone with my beloved 83 year old mother I get reassured that she is okay and I soon will be able to be with her again.When I am exhausted and frustrated I look up from my work and they beckon me to drop it all and come play to reset.When I get a call from a friend in need the mountains urge me to stop what I am doing and go help.and when the sun hits the peaks in the morning they seem to call me to awake and attack the day with enthusiasm and positivity.Our mountains. Feel the energy. Listen to the messages. Get after it. #mountainlife#aspenreallife#themountainsarecalling ...
