Take time out for a little R&R and a calming break with your child. This book is not only for the children in your life, it is also for you! Deep Breathing for Kids is a collection of breathing activities that will support you and your child as you begin building the foundation for your relaxation practice together.
Inspired by her own experience with debilitating anxiety throughout her childhood and young adult life, Zemirah has made it her mission to make relaxation practice fun and engaging for children. She passionately believes that relaxation, if taught at an early age, can enhance all areas of life as a child grows, develops and enters adulthood. Tools learned and practiced early on, can become life-enhancing gems later in times of challenge or growth.
The tools and activities included here in the Deep Breathing for Kids book, are easy to use, quick to take effect, and can be used to develop a foundation for more advanced relaxation techniques later on. Help your child to reduce stress, learn essential calm-down techniques in a fun, engaging way.
While there are many basic deep breathing tools, additional deep breathing activities that combine and integrate several different tools to promote deeper practice are included. Ideas for visual aids that can be used with children who find the concepts difficult to grasp or who have other special needs are a HUGE reason to read this book.
In her light, entertaining style, Zemirah has included her own beautiful photography, and wrapped years of her personal experience teaching relaxation to kids into this beautiful package. Just reading the introduction, gives permission for you to relax, let go, and to nurture your “in the moment” presence before reading on.
