What is this training about?

Ideal for those supporting a child to calm their fight, flight, freeze, collapse responses, this fun and practical online workshop can be done with the young person alongside so you can both learn how to breathe mindfully. Mel will take you through a variety of games that can be used inside and out, making it a valuable addition to those looking to teach children how to self regulate in different environments.

Mindful breathing can have a calming influence over the nervous system. By focussing and regulating the breath using the breathing exercises shown, increases the supply of oxygen to your brain and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system. This helps to promote a state of calmness over the body and mind, as you focus on your breath your thoughts settle down and your mind becomes calm and clear.

Those who attend this training will:

  • Learn games and activities that focus and regulate the breath
  • Be shown breathing activities that calm the nervous system
  • Be equipped with breathing exercises which can be done together with children at home or at school
