Schools - Dog and Tree for Focus - 7 mins Buy Download Now
Like it Dislike it
Not Available

The downward dog is very calming and as the head is down, it turns the attention away from external stimulus.  Follow with a balance pose to focus the mind and focus energy, especially after an activating break time!

Teachers Dialogue

If the hold of downward dog is too long for you, then sit back on your knees and put your forehead to the floor (child's pose).  Rest there until we move onto being Trees.  


In Tree, if it’s a bit difficult to get your foot onto your thigh, then simply put your foot to your inner calf, or even rest the toes down on the ground. Once you are in the pose, you ARE a tree!  Can you grow taller?  Can you straighten your legs and trunk anymore? What are some of the things that tree makes you think of? Could include tall, string, steady, leafy, bark, photosynthesis, sun, garden, forest etc. Get the children to take turns making up their own stories about wise old trees, or people they know that look like trees, their favorite parks etc.
