What's on

Better Breathing with Susie Sloth – crack the secret code!

Event details

An energetic , playful introduction to Breathwork for kids.

Join in with fun games as we learn Susie’s secret code for better breathing. Based upon this popular story, we will figure out her clues to crack her code.

There’s bound to be giggles as we play with clown shoes, a giant parachute and flying soft toys, a poo emoji cushion, loud party blowers, light feathers and more.

Once we’ve cracked the code, we will practise 5 important breathing exercises for key moments in a child’s day:

🫁- smiling breath; for gratitude
🫁- taking control breath; a brain reset button
🫁- box breath; for focus
🫁- holding your breath; for healthier blood biochemistry
🫁- relaxing breath; for snoozing like a sloth

With high levels of anxiety and school absenteeism, teaching kids that they have an influence over their breathing – which in turn alters how they can handle their emotions – is vital.

Before mindfulness can be effective, we have to work with the nervous system first and address breathing patterns.

Starts at 3:00PM

(This session follows a “Storytime with Susie Sloth“ session at 1pm)
