Yoga is a great way to spend your study break to rejuvenate your body and mind, so that you can always be your best self!

Here are a few easy yoga poses and breathing exercises:

• Inversions are helpful for improving circulation, increasing energy & immunity and improving balance. Try simply putting your legs up against the wall for a few minutes to get the blood flow moving.

• Seated Forward Bends & Seated Twist Poses are great for improving posture, stretching the legs/hips/back/shoulders and strengthening the spine. Staff Pose (Dandasana), Easy Pose (Sukhasana), Sage’s Pose (Marichyasana III), Half Lord of the Fishes Pose (Ardha Matsyendrasana) or Child’s Pose (Balasana) are excellent and easy-to-do poses that will help relieve the body from hours of being hunched over a desk.

• Breathing Exercises are used to relieve stress, calm the mind and improve focus.

Ujjayi Pranayama is a basic breathing technique to calm the brain, when it’s done correctly it sounds similar to the ocean. During this exercise, your mouth stays closed as you slightly constrict your throat as you inhale and exhale through your nose. You should lengthen your breath to a count of 4 while inhaling and exhaling.

Anuloma Viloma also called Alternate Nostril Breathing is used to relieve stress, create balance and calm the mind.

How to properly execute Alternate Nostril Breathing:

1. Inhale once normally and exhale.

2. Close off your right nostril and inhale through your left nostril.

3. Close off both nostrils and hold for one breath, then exhale out of your right nostril.

4. Inhale through your right nostril, then close both nostrils to hold for one breath.

5. Exhale out of your left nostril.

This will complete one round of Alternate Breathing. It’s recommended to perform 3-5 rounds.
