Yoga Calm Principle/Lesson Goal: Stillness

Props/Music Resources Required: Music & CD player, Chime, Small Stuffed Animal (ie: Beanie Baby), Yoga Mat, Relaxing Lavender Room Spray

Lesson Plan:


  • Chime – Ring chime and ask students to raise their hands when they no longer hear the chime
  • Belly Breathing – with small stuffed animal: 10 breaths – Lying flat on your mat, feel your head, bottoms, and legs connected to the mat. Lengthen all the way from your toes, up your back through the top of your head. Feel supported by the mat on the floor. Take a breath in and watch your stuffed animal rise; hold for 1 second; watch it lower as you let your breath go. Close your eyes and listen to the stillness for 30 seconds


  • Mountain – Imagine what it feels like at the top of the tall mountain. Feel the sunshine warm your face
  • Active/Relax Walk – Slowly walk around the room. When I say “activate” you freeze and let yourself be firm and focused on your pose. When I say “relax” you continue to walk slowly around the room.
  • Tree Pose – Feel the wind blow through your branches and then become still – notice the difference between windy and still


  • Be Still – Now let’s sit back on our mats and be still for 15 seconds
  • Progressive Relaxation (Pg. 133 of Yoga Calm) – adapted for this age level
