Global Breath Brake® Week

Find Your Calm While Giving Purpose

Join us Nov. 15-19, 2021 in honor of Global Breath Brake Week. A week dedicated to teaching our trademarked martial arts inspired power breathing technique used by our Heroes Circle community to reduce pain and stress.

Stress is a familiar and common part of daily life, and you have probably heard all about how bad stress is for your mind and body. It can lead to physical symptoms such as headaches and chest pain. It can produce mood problems such as anxiety or sadness. It can even lead to behavioral changes such as outbursts of anger or overeating.

Good news is that we can learn simple techniques to recognize and stop the stress chemicals from making us sick and teach it to our family and friends.

What Is a Breath Brake?
The Breath Brake, trademarked by Kids Kicking Cancer, is an interventional breathing technique based upon tai chi principles. It combines movement with each breath to put the brakes on stress chemicals secreted by the adrenal gland. It is the most central technique taught to the children, one that they readily share with the world.

Our Mantra: Power Peace Purpose
Our Heroes Circle programming is life changing. ​When kids use self-regulation to take control (of a situation), they transform from victim to victor, and unlock their inner POWER. ​PEACE is the experience they feel when they blow out the darkness of their pain, fear or anger. And, when they teach these techniques to others, it reinforces great PURPOSE in their young lives. ​

POWER PEACE PURPOSE is the mantra used by all of our Heroes Circle programs and is truly indicative of the transformation in a student from feeling helpless to conquering their pain, stress or anxiety.
