TEACHING MINDFUL BREATHING TO KIDS
I’ve been practicing mindful breathing with Ayaan since he was 2.
But over the past 8 years, I’ve taught nearly 250 kids between the ages of 2-10 through my yoga, meditation and mindfulness based curriculum.
Here is what I know to be true.
- Kids need mindful breathing to be tangible.
- Each child will like different tools at different times.
- And kids as young as 2 CAN start learning these skills. (and it’s really beneficial to start this young)
So the reason why moms of kids I’ve taught call me a “child mindfulness whisperer” is because I teach from these truths.
Here’s my approach…
- I only teach mindful breathing in a way that incorporates both visual and physical senses. I will never tell a child to just take deep breaths. It’s always with a playful song, tool or activity.
- I teach a variety of tools and when my son or students don’t “take” to a specific one, I don’t look at that as failure or they are too young to get it. It just means I have to get creative and find another tool that will grab their attention.
- And I always come from the energy and positivity that my child and students CAN sit still and do this no matter how strong willed, hyper or uninterested they seem.
2 weeks ago I wrote an entire guide that talked about creating calm down corners with your kids. (If you didn’t read it, CLICK HERE to check it out)
