Lesson Plan:

Intro Activities

  • Introducing compliments as ground rule for classes. We will build in class time for compliments.
  • Star – Started in star pose and gave directions for the first Activate activity)
  • Activate/Relax Walk – move to the drum beat like your favorite animal then stay very still and quiet in your pose when the drum stops.


  • Belly Breaths – with the Hoberman ball – See who wants to lead after I lead a few times. Everyone can teach this activity. Student stands on the teacher mat and leads activity.
  • Stillness – all, then close your eyes and listen to the stillness for up to 30 seconds.


  • Mountain – Can you be a beautiful strong mountain? Close your eyes and imagine the wind blowing at the top of the mountain.
  • Tree Pose – Now imagine that you are a tree on the top of the mountain. Trees sway. Can you? Let the wind blow through your branches then be still.


  • Child’s Pose – Bear breathing in child’s pose or resting pose lying down with head resting on hands….
  • Relaxation – seated guided meditation on the star Mexican blanket that the students prepare for sitting…. about the mountain and a clear lake that you are sitting next to at the mountain. A momma deer and her baby appear by the side of the lake and drink water. Then they slowly walk back into the forest.
  • Compliments and Thank you!
