Five Finger Breathing

May 19, 2020


In this video I walk you through a super simple breathing exercise that you can teach to the children or young people in your care (or that you can use yourself). It’s a summary of the ‘finger breathing’ or ‘take five’ breathing exercise you might have used elsewhere. You could use this video in class and try it out in realtime, or you can learn the technique and then teach it to your kids. Let me know how you get on and leave a comment with suggestions for other techniques you’d like me to share in a future video.

Here is a link to the original box breathing video: — I hope you find this video helpful.

Please take a moment to leave a comment about what you did and didn’t like or sharing your own ideas or experiences. Please also to let me know what other topics you’d like me to tackle in future videos and subscribe to be kept up to date with new videos as they’re published. You can also follow me on Twitter:
