Last Friday, Zen Mommy and Carol Daniels talked about the Yoga Parenting course. Suzanne shared tips with viewers on using some of the tools included in the 8-week online course: the signs, the time machine, and the bunny breath.
One of the things that I love about these tools as they aren’t just “gimicks.” They work — with kids of all ages, not just toddlers and preschoolers but also teens and grown children (even spouses)! *wink*
There’s a reason that they work and it’s all rooted in the brain and how we are wired as humans. The Signs work because as Suzanne explains to Carol, it disengages us from the power struggle. It also activates a different part of your child’s brain: the one that has to visually read the sign.
Bunny Breath works because it oxygenates the brain. When stressed, we operate from the brain stem, the most primitive part of the brain. When we breathe, we move up to the neocortex, where higher level thinking and learning occurs.
