Helping children regulate their energy and arousal level can be key to their capacity to improve self-regulation and engage fully with their lives at school and at home. Our breath offers us a powerful tool that works directly with our nervous system in support of self-regulation. This recording will give you a greater knowledge of how the breath can be used to support self-regulation, and teach you to use six safe and effective breath-based practices to share with your clients and/or students. We will also cover modification and considerations for children at different ages, and address common concerns such as asthma and allergies. Taught by Jennifer Cohen Harper who is the founder of Little Flower Yoga and author of Little Flower Yoga for Kids: A Yoga and Mindfulness Program to Help Your Child Improve Attention and Emotional Balance.
