Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Listening

Lesson Plan:


  • Intro – Cover your ears. Breathe with me while I do 5 breaths with the ball. Hoberman x 5 What did you hear? You can stop and listen to your body any time. Is your heart pounding? Is your breath slow or fast? You can listen to what’s going on around you too, any time. Sometimes it’s good to stop, take a breath, and just listen. Today we will practice listening.
