SEL Strategy: Mindful Listening

One of Breathe For Change’s foundational self strategies is called Belly Breathing. This strategy aligns with the CASEL social-emotional learning competencies of self-awareness, and self-management. This simple, yet profound practice supports both students and teachers in building mind-body and breath connection.

Check out our video to see our Founder & CEO, Dr. Ilana Nankin, modeling how to teach Belly Breathing to both younger and older students!
