Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Stillness

Lesson Plan:


  • Greeting – Seated greeting from the chair or mat.
  • Belly Breathing – with the Hoberman sphere – one child operates while another counts the breaths (between 5-10) where is the stillness?
  • Compliments – for both children helpers.


  • Downward Dog – on the matt or at a table or desk, noticing the stillness of your body what holds very still? Can you hold that still?
  • Seated Twist – What in your body is the most still what is most active?
  • Seated Crescent Moon – Side bending to each side.


  • Guided Relaxation – imagining that you are a tree in the forest. You are able to watch all the lively animals go about their daily lives. Sometimes being very still gives you a great view to the world.

Abridged (seated) lesson ends there.

Activate (continued)

  • Roots – shifting your weight in a circle all around your center of balance, finding your center again.
  • Eagle Pose – you are the keen eagle on it’s perch in a tall tree, surveying the land, then you take flight soaring high above it all then you land again back on that perch.
  • Tree Pose – Stillness of the tall tree supporting it’s branches.


  • Guided Relaxation from above.
