Helping children regulate their energy and arousal level is 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 workshop will give you a greater knowledge of how the breath can be used to support self-regulation, and teach you to use six time-tested, safe and effective breath-based practices to share with your clients and students. We will also cover modification and considerations for children at different ages, and address common concerns such as asthma and allergies.
