Children in Y1 to Y6 will be familiar with Belly Breathing from their yoga in school. We have discussed how it can be used at anytime and anywhere to calm and regulate. Children can belly breathe standing, sitting or lying down. (A wonderful tool to help when struggling to sleep. Younger children may benefit from using a breathing buddy- soft toy gently resting on their belly) It is also a wonderful, mindful way to still the mind by focusing solely on the breath.
Resting the hands gently on the belly, slowly breathe in through the nose, noting the hands raising up with the belly. As you slowly breathe out, the belly lowers with the hands. (Encouraging deeper breathing from the stomach rather than shallow from the chest.)
