Through relaxation techniques and visualisation, pathways are traced into the 'Garden of Dreams' - an avenue into the imagination of children. Using the daily exercises and breathing brings a calmness and alertness into the classroom, which helps to facilitate development and learning across the curriculum. This is a particularly unusual and creative resource.
