  1. I'm 40 and was just shown this by by psychologist & it's something I'll be watching whenever I need a lift. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’œ

  2. Omg kids are in the video If I was on there I would just be standing there😯😯😯😯😯😯😯😯😯😯😯😯😯😯😯

  3. You're on to the best way to relax, have strength, and manage pain. Use your very own breath–but particularly your outbreath. Check out my book, Just Breathe Out–Using Your Breath to Create a New, Healthier You. You can find it in print, e-book, iTunes Audible formats as well as in braille and audio from the Library of Congress National Library Service.

  4. oh yeah when you get rabies always breathe and look like your pregnant I watched this in my class and this was my teachers fault because she asked for it

  5. I am offering a teacher trainingΒ workshop on Wednesday for teachers with Anxious Students…Check out one of my sharing activities.. Let's hear it for Belly Breathing!!!

  6. It help me andd my baby sister and i am 12 and she is 6 .πŸ–‘πŸ–‘πŸ–‘πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  7. Is it ironic that i'm getting kiiiinda annoyed? Oh, I guess it's intended for practice! Well that's convenient.

  8. Such a catchy way for young children to learn this strategy. I'd love to share this video with our school community here in China but many parents don't have direct access to youtube. May I have your permission to download this video to our school video sharing site….?

  9. I'm a yoga teacher, and I instruct belly breathing all the time. I love this video and show it to everyone because I find it uplifting. However, I find it unbelievable that all the kids who they use to model are taking extreme upper chest breaths, total opposite of belly breaths. They are using the intercostal muscles and not the diaphragm at all. This creates a stress response in the body. I wish there had been one person on the staff who made this video that actually knew what a belly breath is, and how and why it can help people.

  10. Elmo's inner monster looks a bit like Animal. He sounds a bit like Frazzle.
    Common's inner monster looks interesting….
