Belly Breaths for Relaxation

This breathing exercise helps children become mindfully connected to their breath, and understand how it can support feelings of relaxation and peace.

Hi, everyone.

For today's mindfulness practice,

we're going to be doing some

big belly breaths together.

To start, can you choose your favorite

toy or stuffed animal friend to lay on

top of your tummy when you're laying down?


Now, let's lay down on our backs

and get really comfy where we are.


Are you laying down?


Now, can you place your friend

on top of your tummy and let them

gently fall asleep on your tummy?

Let's do some big breaths together now.

And watch your friend

sleeping gently on your tummy.

Take a big breath in and can

you see your friend go up?

Now, let's slowly breathe out.

And can you see your friend go down?

Can you take your biggest breath now

and see how your tummy gets bigger and

bigger, and your friend go up and up?

Now, slowly let go of your breath and see

how your friend goes down with your tummy.

Let's do five more big breaths

together as we watch our friend move

up and down, I'll count with you.


Big breath in.

And slow breath out.


Big breath in.

And slow breath out.


Big breath in.

And slow breath out.


Big breath in.

And slow breath out.


Big breath in.

And slow breath out.

That was some wonderful breathing.

I hope that you felt relaxed and calm.

Thank you for joining me today

and I'll see you again next time.
