Breath-Body-Mind practices can help children calm down, self-regulate their emotions, improve their ability to focus and learn in school, and relieve anxiety about taking tests or performing in recitals or competitions. Simple breathing techniques balance and strengthen the stress response system. For children who have experienced trauma, the movement and breathing practices enable the child to feel safer, less fearful, and freer to laugh and play, sleep more easily, reconnect with their own feelings, and relate better to others.
Children enjoy breath practices combined with music, movement, visualizations, and dancing. Each child is given a Breath Buddy, a small stuffed animal to help learn Coherent Breathing. Buddy helps children feel safe and connected.
