Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Stillness

Lesson Plan:


  • Belly Breathing – with the Hoberman Sphere – Teacher has previously modeled. One student leads with the Sphere and one student counts. Afterwards students offer compliments.
  • Discussion – Why do we need to find quiet? Group discussion. My favorite quote: “Sometimes there are so many ideas in my head. If I can find quiet then I give my brain a break and I can get more ideas and they are more organized.”
  • Finding our one minute of quiet.
  • Pulse Count – Count pulse for 15 seconds. Have student remember the number. Repeat and ask students to raise a thumb if their number is lower. Discuss how the breath can help us.


  • Yoga Flow – Simple Primary Flow: cat/cow, rock and roll, boat, mountain, up mountain, forward fold, bent knee lunge, mountain, up mountain, forward fold, bent knee lunge, mountain, warrior II on each side.


  • Twist
  • Relaxation – visualize what helps to calm you. Then discuss what calms us.
