Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Grounding

Words: “Be where your feet are”

Lesson Plan:


  • Have a student ring the bell of stillness – Close eyes and sit in stillness of the moment – “be where your feet are”.
  • Belly Breathing – Ask a student leader to lead the breathing with the Hoberman Sphere. Appoint another student to be the counter.
  • Pulse Check


  • Mountain PoseStand solid and tall in your mountain pose. (Feel your feet grounding into the earth)
  • Upward Mountain – Stretch your fingers to the sky – hold you arms up straight.
  • Forward Bend – Reach down to feel the ground under your feet
  • Bent Knee Lunge – Feel the solid support of your lower body as you lunge forward with your arms in the air.
  • Downward Dog – Push your body into a v shape – hands and feet away from each other


  • Pulse Check
  • Mindful Moment Card – Grounding/ being present
  • Discuss – What is the benefit of being present in your day? What is the effect of not – being present? How can staying grounded help you in your daily life?
