Enjoy A Yoga Adventure with Coco The Butterfly to Welcome Spring!

Cosmic Kids Yoga is a great YouTube channel that introduces Yoga and Mindfulness to children through engaging stories!

Encourage your student to follow along with the story and copy the movements, poses, and breathing exercises demonstrated. This will strengthen your child’s motor planning skills, bilateral coordination skills (using both sides of our body at once), and self-regulation skills.

Here is the link to the Coco The Butterfly Yoga video:

Pizza Breathing

Pizza breathing is a way to encourage slow and controlled breathing when a child is anxious, hyper, or upset.

How to do Pizza Breathing:

  • Make a triangle with your fingers to make a slice of pizza or print and color a piece of pizza.
  • “Smell the pizza” – slowly breathe in through your nose
  • “Blow on the hot pizza” – slowly breathe out of your mouth
  • Repeat at least 4 times
