Deep Breath In (Breathing Activity)
Sing Along: Songs & Activities for Circle Time • 1m 21s
Take some deep breaths with Rachel to warm up, energize and relax!
At the beginning of every Yo Re Mi class, we warm up our bodies and voices. Crossing the meridian of our body builds the corpus callosum, the bridge between the two halves of our brain, and helps with tracking and reading skills down the line. Taking deep breaths can help us self-regulate when big emotions hijack our day. And tapping our bodies and sweeping our arms builds a sense of where our bodies are in space or proprioception!

Chomp Chomp (Sing Along)
Be an alligator! Kids can practice identifying right from left as well as lengthening their spine and side body in our song, Chomp Chomp! We end our song with a gentle Seated Forward Bend, relaxing the nervous system and winding down.
Up and Down (Kids Music and Rhythm)
Young children can follow Lauren to integrate their visual, aural, and physical listening skills as well as developing their sense of proprioception. Upward Hands lengthens our intercostal muscles and the action of springing up tones our legs and abdominals!
Making A Pizza (Sing Along)
What's better than pizza? A SONG about pizza!
Practice rhythm, pattern and sequencing while giving our bodies a great stretch. Make a delicious pizza with Dan!
