This activity is a wonderful way for kids (and adults!) to rejuvenate themselves, get oxygen flowing, and to stimulate the muscles and the mind back into action. This is a perfect go-to-strategy when our students have been seated for any length of time and is amazingly simple. Very little space is needed to complete breath of joy cycles.Thanks to my wife, Neila, for sharing her video of doing the 'Breath of Joy' with her grade 4 students.
As you watch the video, keep in mind the pattern of breathing is 3 quick snorts of breath in, as you simultaneously move your arms in unison. The cycle is completed by a hard and complete exhale and folding of the body forward over bent and soft knees. Good luck with it!
