How to Sharpen Your Mind with Yoga

Here are a few tips for students to improve their concentration and memory.

Vajrasana

  • Kneel down on a flat surface
  • Ensure that your shins are in contact with the floor
  • Overlap the big toes to press the pressure points
  • Rest both palms on the knees and then sit in an upright position
  • Close your eyes and hold for as long as it’s comfortable

Nadishodhan

  • Sit in comfortable posture.
  • Raise your right hand and place the ring and middle fingers over the left nostril, the first finger in between the eyebrows and the thumb over the right nostril.
  • Inhale through your left nostril for six seconds using both the stomach and chest.
  • Then close the nostril with the two fingers and exhale through the right nostril for six seconds.
  • Then inhale from the right side and exhale through the left. Repeat five times.

Padahastasana

  • Stand upright on a flat surface and put the hands up straight
  • Bend your torso all the way down so that the palms reach the toes gradually
  • Hold this position for 20 to 30 seconds and come up

Halasana

  • Lie on a flat surface on the back and raise both legs to a 90 degree angle
  • Move your legs slowly over your head and touch the floor behind the head with your toes
  • Support the back with the palms
  • Remain in the posture for 30 to 40 seconds

Tratak

  • Sit in vajrasana or any comfortable posture.
  • Focus your gaze on an object without blinking until the eyes start to tear
  • Relax and then repeat five times.
  • Before you close the eyes, rub the palms together and place over the face (this will protect your eyes from disease and weakness)
