The yoga philosophy system of the chakras helps us understand our bodies and minds as a whole. This holistic theory helps us to understand the balance of our emotions, our health, and our thoughts.

This Next Generation Yoga Lesson Plan invites students to focus on the root chakra, known for feelings of grounding and stability. Strong, stable movements drive the physical portion of this lesson, while discussion points facilitate reflection on what makes students feel rooted and assured. Get grounded…in a good way!
