How Yoga and Mindfulness Can Support Life Goals
Teens Share How Yoga Helps Them In Life
Note: This lesson plan was originally designed for teaching youth, but it could also be appropriate if you teach life skills to adults who are preparing to go back to school or reenter the work force.
Before explaining about this goal-setting lesson plan, I want to be very clear that it is NOT about setting goals FOR yoga practice. Instagram has done a fine job of instigating ‘pose goals!’
Yoga and mindful practices are non-competitive and process-oriented by nature. And that is exactly why yoga class can be a supportive environment to help students cultivate a positive vision for their future.
The purpose of this lesson is to:
1) help students set positive, conscious goals for their lives; and
2) help them discover how their yoga and mindfulness practice can support them through the inevitable obstacles life will present.
