Supporting the practical lessons is a theoretical framework consisting of teaching strategies, read-aloud instructions for children, stories, answers to commonly asked questions, tips for organizing programs, and current scientific research – everything needed to learn breath awareness and teach children. The ten one-hour lessons can be given over any number of days and can be used to teach one child or larger groups.
