BRING FOCUS AND CALM INTO YOUR CLASSROOM WITH OUR ANIMATED BREATHING & MINDFULNESS EXERCISES
Your students will love these 30 mindfulness breathing exercises and movement sensory breaks animated videos! These self-regulation exercises encourage students to be present in their bodies and minds. In particular, the brain breaks include exercises that involve breathing, bilateral coordination, and crossing the midline. Additionally they help to build gross motor skills, fine motor skills, and/or provide proprioceptive input. Plus, there’s also the option to integrate auditory input, too. Just use the narrated videos with carefully selected accompanying music.
These brain and body break videos are designed to help students self-regulate, focus, and feel more centered & calm. Not only are they easy to follow, they are fun to learn! Moreover, the movement and breathing exercises also work wonders with transitions and establishing routines. And perhaps most importantly, these animated mindfulness exercises help to shift reactive and/or disassociated energy into receptive and engaged energy.
