RESEARCH

   

Research shows the powerful effects of mindful breathing and awareness:

  • Calms the stress response
  • Strengthens attention
  • Promotes brain integration
  • Fosters better sleep
  • Strengthens self awareness

This directly and/or indirectly helps the child do the following:

  • Better stress management
  • Better quality, longer attention spans
  • Better, more fulfilling daily routines
  • And much more, thus helping the children become the best versions of themselves.
