Mindful Breathing & Calm Centering for Children

ABOUT

Hello, my name is Ann Biese. In this journey of life, I’ve worn many hats - wife, mother, teacher and now, author. My book Worry Bee was born out of watching children struggle with anxiety. For some, the overwhelming stress impacts their everyday lives and can be debilitating. My first encounter with anxiety was with a friend’s child who suddenly became withdrawn and consumed with worry. I then noticed children in my classroom settings who had difficulty concentrating or became frustrated for no apparent reason. To help them cope, I drew from my years of experience as a 500 RYT, 200 E-RYT, RCYT yoga teacher and encouraged them to simply breathe. Yes, breathe.

 

Proper breathing calms your heart and mind, yet so many children and adults do not breathe correctly. Oftentimes, we miss the opportunity to be relaxed and focused by using our own breath. We teach children to read correctly, but not how to breathe appropriately; yet both are critical skills.

Breathing techniques help children with self-regulation and gives them power over their feelings and impulses. I wrote Worry Bee with the hope that it will teach children guided breathing that will help move them to a more tranquil, peaceful state.

 

My passion is supporting children, particularly those with anxiety. Worry Bee is a wonderful addition to programs I offer in schools and organizations that work with children.  My presentations are geared towards all children, and even adults, because at some point we all worry about something. Through mindful breathing, deep stretching, music and movement, we can all learn to de-stress naturally.

 

I look forward to helping you and your child to just breathe and become more focused and engaged.

“We teach young children to read; why aren’t we teaching them to breathe properly?  Just as reading is a life skill, so is breathing.”
