Dream BIG

(8-13 yr. olds)



What did Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr. all have in common? They each had big dreams of peace, freedom, equal rights, and led with love and kindness. Next Generation Yoga’s Lesson Plan, “Dream BIG” will inspire children to dream BIG, share their dreams with others and work towards having the life that is filled with grace and perseverance.  

“Dream BIG” is a history lesson about some of the world’s greatest leaders and their big dreams and actions, but it’s not a history lesson you might find in a textbook. This fun and educational NGY Lesson Plan features theme-specific Yoga poses and breathing exercises, as well as an opening meditation and guided visualization to inspire goal setting. To get children in the dream big mindset, it contains a special playlist, group craft and opportunities for social interaction throughout the class. Written by NGY Founder, Jodi Komitor & NGY Teacher, Nicole Koleshis, we’ll show you how to infuse the “Dream BIG” theme into a class, specifically designed for 8-13 yr. olds.

Whether you are a parent, caregiver, an experienced or new Yoga Teacher, this lesson plan is for you and the children in your life any time of the year. It is thoughtfully designed so that everyone can learn and implement something new!
