Home Connection

Our lives are so hectic that sometimes we even forget to breathe! Breathing for relaxation is easy, it just takes a little practice.

When you (or your children) are stressed out, angry, or feeling anxious - you may notice your belly is sucking in when you take a breath. This is putting even more stress on your body. Balloon breathing teaches us to blow up the balloon in our belly when we take a breath in. Try to bring your awareness to how you are breathing and blow up that belly balloon more often!
