Powerful Purpose

a Yoga + Mindfulness Lesson Plan for ages 2-13



Everything in life has a purpose. The purpose of books is to teach us new things, take us to distant lands and make us smile and laugh. The purpose of our lungs is to take in oxygen and help us breathe. The purpose of the Sun is to give us heat, light, vitamins and help our food to grow. Next Generation Yoga’s Lesson Plan, “Powerful Purpose” takes kids and families on a journey to explore these purposes and more, including our own powerful life purpose.

“Powerful Purpose,” inspired by Deepak Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, helps children recognize their unique gifts and special talents. Through theme-specific Yoga poses, creative movements, age-appropriate guided visualizations, and opportunities for sharing, this Next Generation Yoga Lesson Plan gives children the space to see how they can offer their special gifts and talents to the world. As always, music suggestions and Family Yoga recommendations are provided, and this Lesson Plan includes detailed instructions on how to incorporate Next Generation Yoga’s favorite prop, a Hoberman Sphere! Written by NGY Founder, Jodi B Komitor & NGY Teacher Nicole Koleshis, this Next Generation Yoga Lesson Plan will show you how to infuse the “Powerful Purpose” theme into a Yoga class, specifically designed for 2-7 and 8-13 year olds.
