The Breathing Circle
Learning through the movement of the natural breath
by Nell Smyth
Movement is fundamental to healthy child development in the early years. Nell Smyth has created a series of playful, informal exercises, verses, songs and stories inspired by movement and the natural flow of breath.
These simple, enjoyable techniques promote physical well-being and social confidence and are invaluable for supporting early language and literacy skills. The Breathing Circle can be used at home or in the classroom with young children aged from 18 months up to around seven years.
“Nell Smyth’s work in this field is invaluable and needs to be spread as widely as possible. Not just because it will help younger generations to a healthier life, but also because learning to free your natural breathing pattern and to know how to maintain this openness throughout life are the most precious gift we can give our children.”
Gunnel Minett, International Breathwork Foundation
