Breathe, Stretch, Write: Learning to Write with Everything You’ve Got

This resource is designed to spark children’s imagination and enhance their creativity. Guided exercises and fun-filled suggestions integrate the elements of writing with simple movements and yoga principles to create a safe and joyful learning experience. The power of movement is used to make the connection between breath (respiration) and creativity (inspiration). Each activity follows the same format: breathing exercises followed by stretching and then a writing activity.
