Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Stillness
- 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.
- 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.
