Belly Breathe - Let's breathe!
"Consider this. One good breath will allow a child to relax mentally and physically. One good breath will teach a child to pause before committing to her words and actions. One good breath will help a child release his anger and approach difficult situations with a clear mind. One good breath will help a
child gather the courage to take a calculated risk, whether it's trying something different or making a new friend. One good breath will improve a child's focus, so she can perform better at school, on the ball field, at home. One good breath will remind a child to smile, to forgive, to play, to love, to live. If one good breath will help a child to achieve all of this, imagine what a lifetime of good breaths will do. " Lisa Flynn, 2010 Yoga 4 Classrooms
