7 Yoga Poses For Studying That’ll Help You Focus & Stay Calm Ahead Of Your Examsadmin
“Legs up the wall pose is an easy and restorative yoga pose, helping the mind and body relax while releasing stress,” Parker tells Elite Daily.
Lie down on the floor, and inch your butt up so it’s touching the wall, while your legs rest straight up the wall, the yoga teacher explains. Feel free to add a small pillow under your head, Parker suggests, a cozy blanket to cover your body, and maybe even listen to some soothing music to help you unwind.
“Inhale deeply through your nose, then exhale slowly. Repeat this slow breath pattern and continue to relax,” Parker says. Alternatively, she adds, you can open up your legs into a “V” formation, if that feels good.
Finally, let your hips open up and release all of the tension you’re holding there. Release, relax, and give yourself permission to receive whatever you need at this time.
