Just Breathe: Holiday Stressbusters For The Whole Family

Just Breathe: Holiday Stressbusters For The Whole Family

Oh the holidays ... the time for family, friends ... And LOTS to do! While the holidays are such a wonderful time of celebration and togetherness, they are also really stressful and exhausting ... For us adults, and our kids! Kids stay up later than normal, may be traveling, are out of school and off their normal schedules. As a kids yoga instructor I notice the lull in energy over the holidays and thought I would share some energizing breathing techniques for little ones (and for us!)

Bee's Breath In a seated position gently place your index fingers in your ears, plugging your ears. As you inhale bring your teeth together. Exhale, making a Z, or Buzzzzzz, sound. Do this for a few breaths. Try closing your eyes too! This is a great breath to block out the noises around you and focus on the self. It can be invigorating, and also calming. Breath of Joy Start standing with feet wide apart and hands clasped together over your head. Inhaling in. On the exhale, release hands and swing the arms down by the side of the body, adding a slight bend to the knees. Start off slowly and gradually increase speed ... and giggles. This breath is warming, energizing and known to create joy!! Washing Machine Breath Place your hands on your shoulders. With your head facing center, inhale through the nose. Turn your torso and head to the right and exhale. Inhale back to center. Turn your torso and head to the left and exhale. Inhale back to center. Repeat 5 - 10 times.  This washing machine breathe is cleansing, stimulating and opens up our heart space Breathing techniques for kids are meant to be fun ... They are especially fun if you try them too.  Try to incorporate these techniques into your lives on a daily basis, instilling the tools to make the exercises second nature. By offering a playful approach to this practice, you can give your child the tools to energize, anywhere, at any time. Namaste, Jessica
