Learning to Breathe


Learning to BREATHE  (L2B) is a research-based mindfulness curriculum for youth audiences. The goal of the program is to improve emotion regulation, attention, and coping skills.  The mindfulness-based program teaches participants to experience the present moment with compassion and openness.
