Breath by Breath is a comprehensive guide to bring mindfulness and yoga into the lives of children. Author Nancy Levine Siegel brings decades of experience and wisdom as both a classroom teacher and kids’ yoga instructor and shares her research along with practical exercises.

The book has two parts: part 1 offers the reader the educational research and experience that form the grounding for the work. Part 2 has practical advice on breathing, mindfulness, and yoga practices that can be used with children ages 3-12.

Chapter by chapter and page by page, Nancy’s well earned and well-researched wisdom emerges, built on years of direct experience and thorough study. You’ll hear not just her kind and authoritative voice, but the voices of many children and adults who’ve experienced the transformative power of yoga and mindfulness. – Christopher Willard, PsyD, Harvard Medical School

The skills these practices develop include self-control of the body, self-management of stress and emotions, and community building for both adults and children. A review of influential educators in the last century links their insights to the importance of these skills. Among them, Maria Montessori frequently wrote about the “spiritual preparation of the teacher” in order to serve children well, but her writing lacked detail of how to go about this. Breath by Breath helps to fill the gap through research, journal prompts, and experiences.

“Inspired by Nurturing the Spirit, Nancy Siegel has spent much of her career researching the benefits of mindfulness in education and practicing Yoga with children. The seeds of these practices, found in Nurturing the Spirit, have grown into the gift of this well-researched and very practical book for teachers of children ages 3-12.” – Catherine Maresca, Center for Children & Theology

Breath by Breath is a resource that will serve children directly through the practices in Part 2, and indirectly through the theory and preparation of the adult offered in Part 1.
