Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Strength

Lesson Plan:


  • Belly Breathing – with breathing buddies – watch your tummy rise and fall…watch your breathing buddy rise and fall with your tummy


  • Mountain to Mountain Flow – (mountain, fold, plank, superman/cobra, down dog, mountain) repeat 2-3 times
  • Chair – sit back like you’re in an imaginary chair…let’s see how strong we are, let’s try to hold it for 3 breaths
  • Mountain – stand tall in your mountain
  • Crescent Moon – let’s do crescent moon to one side and hold for 2, return to mountain, now the other side and hold for 2
  • Star – shine like the brightest strongest star
  • Side Angle – reach reach reach as strong and far as you can, and breathe…(repeat from star to do the other side of side angle)
  • Boat – make your strong and sturdy boat (or cruise ship)
  • Rock and Roll
  • Bridge – make the tallest strongest bridge you can make, and let the boats pass through underneath


  • Twist – from side to side and hold – Hug it all in and let go
  • Questions – What makes us strong? Is it just our muscles? Or is it our emotional and mental strength too? Who is strong that you know? Why?
  • Progressive Relaxation – from Yoga Calm for Children on page 133
