  1. Blowing Balloon:
  • Sit in a comfortable crossed-leg position.
  • Cover your mouth with your hand.
  • Take a deep breath through your nose and start blowing out slowly through your mouth, growing your hands outward with your exhale.
  • Once it grows big, with normal breathing, sway gently from side to side.
  • Let the children imagine that they have balloon in their hand, now ask them to release it to the sky.
