Free Yoga Class Handout With 43 Meditations – A Free Gift That Your Students Will Love
Why did I create a yoga class handout with 43 meditations?
Well, it’s simple really.
Today I received this question from one of our Yoga Genie Lesson Planner members…
“I was excited to see you’ve added meditation scripts & relaxation exercises to the Yoga Genie Lesson Planner. Is there an easy was to browse them in text format, or do I have to add them to a class plan first? “
To make her life a wee bit easier, I created the meditations handout for her (download it below).
You can use this PDF as a freebie handout for your yoga students (e.g. if you had a meditation or relaxation theme). It would essentially be a FREE yoga ebook to give them (12 pages). I guarantee they’ll be amazed that you went to so much trouble for them.
I recommend asking your students to pick one meditation a day for 30 days (for a home practice).

Below are 10 of the 43 meditation exercises…
Sit with legs crossed (or on a chair). Close eyes. Bring attention to the surface you’re sitting on. Become aware of how it supports your sitting bones. Expand your awareness to feel the touch of your clothes against your skin. How do the different fabrics feel?

Sit with legs crossed. Close eyes. Think about one of your fears. Observe how you feel without wallowing in it. Imagine the fear is a caged bird. What are the colours of the feathers? How big is it? What does its call sound like? How does it move? See yourself opening the cage and setting the bird free, releasing it from your mind. As you watch your fear flying away, experience a wave of acceptance bathing you.
~ Caged Bird Meditation
Sit with legs crossed. At your core lies the calm of our true nature. To access this inner calm, imagine yourself diving into a warm, calm lake. You glide through the water in profound silence. As you reach the sea-floor, you are awed to see it carpeted with stunning white pearls. You float quietly observing the pearls. See yourself returning to the surface of the lake. When breaking the surface, you realise that the white pearls of calm you have just discovered lies within you.
~ Calm Reservoir Meditation
Sit with legs crossed. Close eyes. In your mind’s eye imagine you have a Seer who is a beautiful women dressed in an owl’s cloak. Whenever you have a problem consult your Seer.

Sit with legs crossed. Close eyes. 99% of our emotional wounds come from childhood. Imagine yourself as a child standing in front of you. Gaze down at the child. Kneel down and introduce yourself. If the child comes towards you, hug him/her close to your heart in a long, warm, loving embrace. Say to the child (silent mantra): “You are safe. You are loved.”
