Anapana Sati, meaning mindfulness of breathing ("sati" means mindfulness, "ānāpāna" refers to breathing) is a basic form of meditation taught by the Buddha.

 Introduction to Anapana courses for children in schools   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Anapana is very different from techniques that are based on artificial regulation of the breath.
Whether a children's Anapana course is held at a school or at a Vipassana meditation center, it is essential that the students be given an opportunity to continue to practise Anapana for a short period each day after the course to yield the true benefits of the practice.
To begin the process of having a children's Anapana course held in a school, the administrator or the head of the school should send a formal request to either the Regional coordinator of Children's Courses, a Children's Course Teacher or a local Vipassana meditation center.

Considerable reference is made to the subject of Anapana Sati meditation, both in the Maha Satipattana Sutta of the Digha Nikaya and the Anapana Sati Sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya.
Moreover, a little practice of Anapana Sati in the lying down posture even by those whose physical faculties are in good order would stand in good stead if in future years they are unable to adopt the recommended posture.
It is also advised that whenever one is restless and agitated or when depressed or elated or when anger is arising, the practice of Anapana Sati meditation for a short time in whatever posture with eyes open and in the company of others would also have a meaningful calming effect on the mind.

Anapana in simple meaning is a sort of contemplation on the concentration of breath-in and breath-out, with stable mind, not letting it go towards any other object.
Anapana, as it is a task of concentration in connection with the breath-in and breath-out, has a particular power, though it is included in the same group of Forty Samatha Kammatthanas.
Anapana is one of the forty Kammatthanas and some said it is Samattha Kammatthana only and some said it is Vipassana Kammatthana only.

This type of breathing meditation is called Anapana meditation and the meditation instruction is given over a period of 3 days.
