Click the video above to watch me using the Yoga Genie Lesson Planner to create a yoga class handout with 43 meditations that will WOW your students when you give it to them.

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 included within the PDF…

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?
~ Attune To Touch Mediation

Sit with legs crossed. Close eyes. In your mind’s eye see yourself saying: “Well done” to each of your gifts. Recognise them as gifts given to you for the benefit and enjoyment of yourself and others.
~ Awareness Of Your Gifts Meditation

Sit with legs crossed. Close eyes. Silently digest this quote from the Bhagavad Gita: “Harmony is eating and resting, sleeping and walking, balance in all you do. This is the path to peace.”
~ Balance In All You Do Meditation

Sit with legs crossed. Close eyes. Silently ponder what the poet Kahil Gibran says about lovers: “Let there be spaces in their togetherness. Be like two trees: grow side by side, but not in each others shadow.”
~ Be Like Two Trees Meditation

Sit with legs crossed. Close eyes. In your mind’s eye imagine you are enveloped in blue light. It’s your force field that keeps out all negative energy. Feel your shoulders lowering and your breath slowing down as you feel secure in the knowledge that your force field is protecting you.
~ Blue Forcefield Meditation

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. Imagine yourself in a moonlit glade. Before you is the Seer. Tell her your problem and listen for an answer. Return at any time to ask for help.
~ Celtic Seer Meditation

Sit with legs crossed. Close eyes. Silently ponder this quote: “To change a relationship, we must change ourselves, not the other person.”
~ Change Of Focus Meditation

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.”
~ Child Within Meditation
