This is a 60mins themed lesson Plan on Core strength.

Introduction (5mins)

  • Self introduction
  • Inquiries about student’s medical and health conditions
  • Brief explanation on core Strength
  • From a yogic perspective, the act of breathing is far closer to the core of who we are than the desired objective of a flat stomach. Our breath is our connection to life, and when this connection is unrestricted and strong, we are stronger physically and mentally. The broader focus is finding a deep inner strength that supports everything we do. With that in mind, we are working on core abdominal strength balancing with a strong focus on developing steady and strong breath.
