Lesson Plan Description

Caterpillar To Butterfly: Be The Change That You Wish To See In The World

Peak Pose

The class will start with you in “caterpillar pose” and end with you transformed in “butterfly pose”.

Butterflies are symbolic of change because of their remarkable transition from caterpillar to butterfly.

On a personal level, the butterfly is a testament to taking change with grace.

The butterfly is a superior reminder that revolutionary change can leave us free, beautiful and vibrant. Butterflies move from one state of being into another. They turn into a whole new organism! If this isn’t a metaphor for a soulful ‘make-over’, I don’t know what is.

Let the butterfly remind you that even though transition can be a painful growth process, it can potentially render you utterly stunning.
