Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Grounding

Lesson Plan:


  • Mountain – Feel your feet connected to the earth. You may role your feet back and forth, side to side. Grounded on each side.
  • Belly Breathing – with the Hoberman Sphere: Begin by standing tall with your shoulders back, chin up. Imagine (use) the string. Pick a student leader. Give compliments to this person at the end.


  • Star Pose – Feel your feet connect to the ground, yet your body is open.
  • Tree Pose – both sides: Focus on one thing not moving. Begin to feel your connection to balance.
  • Eagle Pose – both sides: Find your focus (focus on you, your ideas and confidence self) here and give yourself permission to try again if you become off balance. Worries cause you to loose focus.
  • Wood Chopper – the worried you, release the worry through each Chop.
  • Child’s Pose – Connect your body to the earth, including your head or arms


  • Volcano Breaths – Connect your hands, imagine this volcano is grounded to the land far beneath where the eye can see.
