RELAXING WITH BIRDIE
Relaxing with Birde guides children through a sequence of moves designed to calm down their nervous system by connecting body, breath and emotions. Movements include lying flat and focussing on breathing, standing tall like a tree and stretching like a warrior. These activities encourage emotions such as feeling strong, hopeful and calm.
This project is a part of Birdie’s Tree program, which was created by Children’s Health Queensland’s Queensland Centre for Perinatal and Infant Mental Health, to help children work through scary experiences and big feelings.
