CLEVELAND, March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Inner Explorer, an education non-profit focused on developing healthier, happier, and more engaged students through practiced mindfulness, announced today the new Inner Explorer mobile app to help connect parents with mindfulness education in their child's classroom. Announced at the Wisdom 2.0 Conference in San Francisco - the premiere gathering for mindful living in the digital age - the Inner Explorer mobile app is now available for Android and iOS. The app is available for $4.99/month or $49.99/year, with a 30-day free trial available.
The app provides guided mindfulness exercises designed to help parents practice and reinforce mindfulness techniques. Inner Explorer's daily mindfulness practices increase math, science and reading performance by 10-18% while reducing student behavioral issues by nearly 60%. With the Inner Explorer app, parents can now connect with the powerful techniques their children are learning in the classroom, and share in the experience with a home version of the Inner Explorer classroom program.
"Daily mindfulness practice can help everyone combat stress, especially those students suffering from hunger, poverty, and poor living conditions," says Janice Houlihan, co-founder of Inner Explorer. "The new Inner Explorer app brings parents, students, and teachers together in an effort to help children develop habits and techniques that will help us break the cycle of these issues affecting our society."

Developing a Habit of Mindfulness
Inner Explorer's mobile app helps parents develop mindfulness practice at home and serves as a way to connect them to mindfulness programs that Inner Explorer is working to implement in schools across the country. Regular mindfulness practice has been proven to increase focus and reduce stress. But like improved hygiene through regular handwashing, or healthy diet through conscious food choices, mindfulness is a habit that requires regular practice and reinforcement to truly make a difference in a child's life. Developing a daily practice takes time, focus and commitment, and ideally happens both in the classroom and at home.
Inner Explorer's mindfulness programs makes daily practice easy for teachers to implement and students to grasp, and now with the new mobile app, Inner Explorer makes it easy for parents to join in on the mindfulness education too. The Inner Explorer App provides parents with access to the Home Edition of Inner Explorer program, offering guided mindfulness exercises divided into four levels including:
Pre-K/Kindergarten - Exploring Me™
Elementary - Exploring Originality™
Middle School/Junior High – Exploring Potential™
High School – Exploring Relevance™
The Inner Explorer app will also allow donors to easily and directly contribute to the continuing spread of mindfulness education. Inner Explorer works to bring mindfulness education to the classroom for as little as a dollar a day.
