Happy Breathing® presents a wonderful opportunity to guide children into a breath practice, that connects them to their emotional self, giving tools to self-regulate and communicate with their family and community. The practice centers them through a visualization of beautiful animals and guides to use the tool when needed, recognizing the feeling body and naming the emotion with language. Through Happy Breathing®, the language of emotions comes alive, introducing them maybe for the first time to deeply feel their body and create awareness, and understanding of who they are.
As I created the Happy Breathing® program, I continued to heal my inner child by knowing where my breath could go and can do even in the memory of my own life. Any adult that works and gets introduced to Happy Breathing® is in essence connected to their own inner child as they learn the tools to heal.
During this retreat, we will give an introduction to Happy Breathing®. We will present three breath patterns, the basics for working with children individually and in groups, as well as introduce the tools we will use during the breathwork.
