Deepak Chopra’s Law of Dharma states that everyone has a purpose in life, a unique gift or special talent to share with others. Next Generation Yoga’s Lesson Plan, “Powerful Purpose” gives children a chance to explore their Dharma, by connecting to themselves, sharing with others and recognizing the purpose of everything around them. “Powerful Purpose,” inspired by Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, provides a foundation for kids to learn more about who they are and what they want in life. Through empowering Yoga poses, meditations and guided visualizations, children will become aware of their unique gifts and special talents and the importance sharing their purpose with the world. As always, musical recommendations are offered and this Lesson Plan includes detailed instructions on how to incorporate Next Generation Yoga’s favorite prop, a Hoberman Sphere!
