Francis, The Breathing Bear, created by Mindful Kids Miami, is an adorable companion suitable for all ages. Francis can help children, teens and adults to become aware of their breath, relax and learn to breathe fully into their bellies. Francis can be adapted for the young and the young-at-heart, individually or in classroom/group settings.
In classrooms, teachers generally place Francis in a Peace Corner or Quiet Corner of the classroom as a refuge for suffering children who are upset or about to act out. Francis is a wonderful tool to teach anxious children who do not breathe properly, how to breathe fully.
Francis, The Breathing Bear, is a high-quality, cuddly Vermont bear, who comes with a printed card featuring The Breathing Bear Practice for children.
Francis is available by donation of $50, which provides a bear for the donor and one for an inner-city classroom. For shipping anywhere in the United States, add $10 for shipping and handling.
