Keep Breathin'

Keep Breathin’ has been a creative and fun video for our whole family — and neighborhood kids too. We've played it so often over the past few years and our children always get a kick out of the exercises. Pure healthy fun!” 
—R. Jordan, Teacher/Father

“I like doing the shoulder squeeze and I like the silent breathing part at the end.”
 —Nick, age 8

“I feel all stretched out!” 
—Shayna, age 10

“I like to 'shake it out!” 
Renee, age 7

“Our family has watched Keep Breathin' so often that we wore out a copy of the video tape! It never fails to make us feel good, mentally and physically. What a great thing for our kids to get hooked on!”  
—S. Fleischman, Father/Statistician

“Watching Keep Breathin' has been especially great for my daughter. It has really been a significant, positive thing in her life! I keep thinking that other kids would like it and benefit from it, too.” 
—D. Burwen, Mother/Biologist

“For ten years I have been using Keep Breathin' in my special education classroom. My students love the video! The music and lyrics make the stress reducing exercises lots of fun. The students learn personal management skills and enjoy a fun peer activity. I also see improvement in self-esteem and overall health. My copy is wearing thin, please send me another one.”
