Breathing Techniques From Our GEM Curriculum

Bumblebee Breathing 🐝

Get in an upright seated position with your back straight, feet flat on the floor and roll
your shoulders back, making sure you can breathe easily.

For the exercise, you may
close your eyes and gently cover your ears with your hands.

INHALE through your nose for a count of 4
HOLD for 1 second
EXHALE through your nose for a count of 4, quietly humming as you exhale
This type of breathing helps our brain get in-tune with our senses.
