School of H.E.A.R.T. is a mobile training enterprise that delivers specialized health and wellness programs tailored to meet your needs. Half of our operation focuses on providing emergency response training in both private and corporate settings; the other half specializes in therapeutic care. In addition to our CPR and first-aid certification classes, we offer customized yoga therapy sessions, eco-friendly travel tours, and a variety of personal growth workshops. Our innovative courses and retreats include both online and hands-on components, with an emphasis on empowering students to effect change within their communities. Our approach draws from both our formal medical training and our knowledge of alternative healing practices—the result is a unique blended learning experience suited to people of all skill levels, body types, and genders.
Our Mission: To promote a balance between one’s physical, mental, and social wellbeing through experiential learning, while also offering an insight into global welfare and an individual’s ability to improve it.
Our Vision: We empower students to reach their personal goals so that they may in turn positively impact those around them. We inspire growth by providing a supportive and guided learning environment that is accessible to all. We celebrate the unique strengths of each individual, and aspire to build a community that is engaged, aware, and unified in its desire to help others.

Founders and Educators
Through their former careers as paramedic and nurse-of-all-trades, Brett and Sarah bring decades of medical training to school of H.E.A.R.T. Paired with this formal training is a lifetime of travel experience and hundreds of hours dedicated to the study of holistic healing practices. Both qualified instructors, they have travelled together to over 30 countries, often volunteering with recognized non-governmental organizations or acting independently to raise awareness and funds for causes dear to them. They successfully conceptualized and delivered a number of international wellness programs—disability intervention in Nicaragua, health promotion in the Peruvian jungle, C.P.R./First Aid in Haiti—and have also established a loyal client base at home. Their overarching belief is that education is key to personal and community development, and that through it we have the power to foster positive changes across the globe.
