Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Stillness

Lesson Plan:


  • I CAN be still, especially when I am learning something new. Environment: Sounds of nature (wind, rain, running water, birds, thunder) from a weather app, dim lighting, lavender scent, bell to start session
  • First Session: Labeled Yoga mats with name, established Yoga Calm rules


  • Belly Breathing – (expand belly, relax muscles, slow the breath, keep your body relaxed and still)


  • Roots (rooted to the ground)
  • Mountain – stable, imagine a mountain in the distance and how still it looks against the sky.
  • Tree – Stretch your fingers, extend fingers, activate your muscles, breath in/out. Imagine you are a tree on a calm day. There is no wind and the leaves on the tree is perfectly still.


  • Relaxation Pose
  • One Minute Exploration – imagine a place of stillness, imagine yourself in that place and being very still. We can learn and relax in stillness.
