Through simple rhythmic poetry and relatable pictures, the author and her Nursery/Kindergarten students demonstrate the benefits and ease of mindful breathing.

Mindfulness helps children understand their feelings and emotions, reducing their risk of mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. Mindful breathing relaxes the mind and body so stressful experiences can be calmly observed, reflected upon and responded to in a positive way. Practising mindful breathing is a simple, practical, important life skill that calms the nervous system, helping children (and adults) develop self-regulation, focused attention, and positive well-being.

Karla Dueck Thiessen teaches Nursery/Kindergarten in Winnipeg, MB and has over 20 years of experience as a primary school educator. She is passionate about working with children as they naturally embrace the present moment. Karla and her students practice mindfulness strategies daily. She is also a Reiki Master.
