This printable set includes a Lion themed mindful breathing exercise poster, prompt card, full instructional script for the exercise and mindful colouring page. I hand drew and painted the image which acts as a bright and fun visual aid for the exercise.

Lion’s Breath is a fun, playful way help children to calm their bodies and relax their minds. Through the relaxation of the face muscles, the mindful focus in the moment and the deep belly breathing children can use this breath exercise to regulate emotions and relax the nervous system.

Lion Breaths affirmation: I am as brave as a lion

Why Teach and Practice Mindful Breathing:
When you practice mindful breathing you are using your breath and senses to develop your attention and focus skills, which can have lots of benefits at home and in the classroom. It is also a great coping skill for learning to manage our emotions and helps to elicit the relaxation response and a feeling of calm.
