I Breathe

I Breathe is a brilliant way for children aged 3+ to learn about mindfulness, which is thought to improve children's emotional well-being and academic achievement.

Becky and Ben buzz and hum like busy bees, Alice snuffles like a bouncy bunny and Lulu roars like a brave lion. They learn to be calm, peaceful, free and strong. With yoga, every breath takes them on an adventure - and YOU can join in. A fun, interactive and imaginative way for children aged 3+ years to learn mindfulness through yoga. Susie Brooks is an award winning author and has been writing children's non-fiction and picture books for over 10 years. Inspired by worldwide travels, she is fascinated by the unusual and the extraordinary. Cally Johnson-Isaacs graduated in Illustration from Newcastle Art College. Her simple, joyful illustrations are full of warmth and gentle humour. Her 'Yoga girls' illustrations have a growing number of followers on Instagram.
