In this vlog, I demonstrate a breathing activity called “Nok ‘Em Down ‘N’ Roll ‘Em” that is directly from my book, The Parent-Child Dance. Breathing exercises and activities strengthen a child’s inner core and improve their quality of breathing by decreasing the tendency of shallow, rapid breathing from the belly. At the same time, these exercises often help regulate a child’s body systems by decreasing anxiety, improving hand-eye coordination, and increasing focus and concentration. They would be great for teachers to use in the classroom to promote focus, attention, and learning in their students.
