Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Strength

Lesson Plan:


  • Belly Breathing – Deep breathing using breathing ball. Each boy was asked to do several breaths and pass the ball.
  • Questions – What is strength? Who helps you feel strong? When do you feel strong? There are different kinds of strength—mental and physical.


  • Volcano Breath – your heart thoughts to someone who may need it. Make your exhalation strong like lava coming from the volcano.
  • Downward Dog – feel the strength in your arms and your legs as you relax into the pose.
  • Cobra – use the strength of your arms to push yourself up and feel your back muscles as you arch your back.
  • Plank – make your body into an arrow and hold the pose. Feel the muscles working together to become stronger.
  • Warrior I – feel your legs as they hold your body upright.


  • Chair Twist – as you sit on the chair, hold your back straight and cross over your body to stretch your muscles.
  • Child’s Pose – seated at a table.
  • Relaxation – guided imagery.
