“[Movement breaks are] definitely a positive feature, the ones who do it, you can feel an increase in energy, even the times we did not have good participation, the mental shift to a Movement Break, allowed to pick up a little bit in the time following the break.” – Instructor

“I was relieved to hear that we would be having fit breaks —I often find my concentration drifting after longer periods of time simply due to sitting in the same position for so long feeling stiff and restless.” – Student

“It’s a great way to remind students that we do care about their wellbeing above and beyond how to perform in our classes. That’s something I sort of noticed with the feedback that I got from my students – was that they really appreciated that we took the time to sort take care of ourselves during a fairly long lecture.” – Instructor
