My name is Rachel Breault and I am a 3rd grade teacher here at A.S.W. I have been using belly breathing (aka mindfulness practice) with the students in my classroom for the past four years. I would like to extend the invitation to all students by offering a morning Belly Breathing Workshop. I have been trained by the Mindfulness in Education group in Oakland, California and have attended numerous workshops on meditation. Your child's teacher recommended that your student might benefit from this opportunity. Here are the details:
What: A daily belly breathing class where I will lead children through breathing exercises. The aim is to help kids with self-monitoring their behavior and provide them with tools they can use to calm themselves and find peace of mind.
Who: Any student who needs help with calming down, dealing with their emotions, are impulsive, suffer from anxiety, or would just benefit from this quiet time before their school day begins.
When: We will meet in my room (E-133) each day from 8-8:10am, Monday-Friday, starting October 3-October 21st.
Why: Because I am a firm believer that belly breathing will provide self-management tools that are indispensable for your child!
How do I sign up my student? Simply email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the following information:
