Teacher: Beth Taylor

Grade Level: Kindergarten

Yoga Calm Principle/Goal: Strength

Lesson Plan:

Stillness – Belly Breathing w/ Hoberman Sphere with a student leader (repeated two times counting to five and one time having the leader choose the length of breathe). Volcano breathe with a student leader (repeated three times; students will imagine the strength of the lava pushing out of the volcano).

Listening – Compliments for the leaders will be given.

Grounding – Roots and Upward Mt./Crescent Moon (students will imagine that they are strong superheroes shooting lasers from their fingertips).

Strength – Sun Salutation (middle section of Chair 15 to be done three times; students will be asked to continue to focus on their strength).

Community – Tree Circle and Tree Challenge (students will envision themselves as a band of superheroes working together to keep their enemies from causing them to lose their balance).

Stillness Read “Hidden Heroes” from Ready…Set…R.E.L.A.X. (this story helps students focus on emotional strength by feeling good about who they are).
