Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Strength

Lesson Plan:


  • Pinwheel Breath – How strong does your breath have to be to move the pinwheel… breathe out long and slow and strong?  Notice the muscles you use to breathe…
  • Pulse Count – find your pulse, feel the beat of your heart drum… listen to your drum for 15 seconds… what is your strong heart voice saying to you?


  • Students choose a small stone to represent a hard event they have overcome.
  • Mountain – imagine anchoring into the earth… feeling how strong you are…
  • Warrior II – (Right) —  activate  your inside and outside strength holding stone behind you –something you have overcome that is behind you.
  • Mountain
  • Warrior II – (Left) — Activate!!  Holding stone in front of you—something you have the strength to overcome.
