Pre, Primary and Secondary School Level


Kia ora. I'm Jase Te Patu.  I have been in the wellbeing industry for 30 years.

I have experienced, first-hand the cost of poor mental and emotional health. 5 of my friends have passed from suicide over the years, which has left a lasting impression. My own personal practices of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness have saved my life. This inspired me to share these beautiful skills and tools with the young learners of Aotearoa.

Whilst my trainers facilitate M3 in schools, my focus is on training our teachers throughout the motu. We ALL need the skills to regulate ourselves when stressed or in fight-or flight-mode, so my PLD sessions are practical, interactive, and self-sustainable. Book a session for your teachers today!


- What is M3 and how can it help at my school?

- An introduction to Mindfulness

- Mindfulness practices in the classroom

- Adjusting my oxygen mask before I adjust others'

- HAUORA - Te Whare Tapa Whā - a 4-walled approach to wellbeing


A very motivating and insightful presentation pitched just right,  I thought, for the audience, he “ held” us all safely through some very emotive issues. Definitely agree that it would be really helpful for our children. - Kaiako, KidsFirst Christchurch

Best PD I’ve had at EBIS. I think it was the benefit of having something tangible to take away with me in my kete - It has already had its benefits in my classroom - Adam Hart, Evans Bay Intermediate

Great session with Jase. Very engaging speaker and created a very safe environment so that staff we're able to share thoughts comfortably. I would love to use videos in class as students would definitely benefit from having their own ‘toolkit’ - Tom Cathro, Kaiako, Evans Bay Intermediate

Mind-blowing Mindfulness!!  This is one of the best presentations I have EVER been to.  Jase is an authentic human who shares his story in a way that is so relatable to our own individual stories.  The take-home kete of resources is so valuable and I know will be supportive of weaving mindfulness into my everyday practice so I can take the best of care of myself, and give my best to the tamariki and whānau I work with. - Kaiako, South Canterbury Kindergartens

Kia ora Jase, Thanks for the inspiring speech at Timaru a couple of weeks ago. On a personal note, it was inspiring in terms of looking after ourselves as kaiako and guardians of our tamariki – it really resonated for me the importance of looking after ourselves in order to best serve our tamariki. After a year of looking into social and emotional competency as part of my teacher appraisal, I decided to follow up this year by focusing on breath and movement and to somehow weave Māori stories into this important work, then I see we are coming to your talk… THANK YOU! You brought it all together in such a simply magical way. I have 1 tamariki, who as a team, we have been working on her emotional responses, starting with a simple breath. She has a deep connection with Māori stories and so I can see how beautifully this will work to both embrace her love and connection with her place through Māori narratives but also by linking this to important breath work,  I can see we could make significant empowering changes in her life. Thank you again. - Kate Preston, Oamaru Kindergarten

Thanks, Jase so much - your session was fabulous - really tied our day together - and we had already decided that we needed to explore Te Whare Tapa Whā as we wanted our wellbeing model for our school to be based on this, so it was perfect!!- Julie Cowan, Principal, Reremoana School
