I’m on a mission. I’m determined to help my daughter learn self-regulation skills to feel successful in her life. After years of struggle trying to figure out how to help us both manage our big emotions, we’re turning mainly to the simplest practice: our breath. We’re practicing various breathing exercises for kids together to help her to calm and focus her mind and body.
Below you’ll find five breathing exercises that you can try with your children in your home, classroom, or studio. Use these breathing techniques as a springboard to encourage your child’s creativity. My daughter teaches me new breaths all the time, using her imagination. This includes the Eagle Breath, which you’ll find in our Breathing Cards for Kids PDF Download.
