2. Boosting Memory

With stress, anxiety and negative thoughts sidelined through meditation, Yoga brings forth thoughts that you need to be focusing on. Studies have shown that Yoga has better results than brain training.

Historical wisdom has now combined with scientific studies to show that Yoga is a recommended therapy for students as well as adults.

3. Longer Attention Span

Active children might have a tough time sitting down to focus on studies. With regular yoga sessions of 20 minutes a day for a period of four weeks, children have been shown to be able to focus longer on subjects.

The yogic environment and principles encourage the mind to focus and concentrate on one thought while gently setting aside distractions. Children with ADHD have also shown to have prolonged attention spans with regular practice of yoga.

4. Improved Posture

Sitting hunched over a desk for long hours leads to chronic pain and reduces breathing capacity. Thats why Yoga will make you more aware of your body and train your muscles to align correctly.

Correctly aligning the body allows the body to function with a minimal amount of energy. Yoga poses aimed at balance, flexibility, and stamina, strengthen muscles and connective tissues enabling good posture.

The practice of Yoga will bring a positive change in mood and attitude, increased energy levels and the ability to focus on what is required by setting aside distracting thoughts in a student.
