Lesson Plan:


  • Guidelines of Yoga Calm

  • Use cards to pick who feel most like now- Feelings Faces


  • Belly Breathing – while balancing a rock on belly, picture being connected to the Earth like the rock, 30-60 seconds
  • Mindful Moment Card – imagine sitting on a large warm rock…

(Check in to see if any one wants to share)


  • Tree – 30 second each side, use drum (focus on a spot on wall)
  • Tree Challenge II – press gently without losing balance
  • Roots – try eyes open, then closed- how different?
  • Chair Pose – feel being strong and rooted
