An online group open to all, containing posts and videos teaching techniques to soothe, calm and energise.
Two simultaneous programmes: one for primary aged children guided by an adult, the other for young people and adults.
To guide, support and inspire with tools and techniques to soothe, calm and energise during the current outbreak of Covid-19.
To start an introductory 'Breath Awareness' session (no previous breath awareness required) for all new participants finding out the key elements of a full, flowing healthy breath.
'Playful Breath' programme for primary-aged children, guided by an adult. Incrementally learn to master the breath using a sequence of 9 body movements combined with breathing exercises. This fun programme uses nature, storytelling, sounds and animal movements.
For young people and adults the skill of breathing will be incrementally improved using a variety of guided breathing exercises.
Once breathing exercises are well established there will be guided relaxations, massage tips & breath-related activities for children.
