Yoga for students

The open legged forward bend is a vital pose in calming your senses and enhancing the level of your concentration. The pose is also useful in improving your powers of recall as it helps to increase blood circulation to the brain. To do the open legged forward bend, stand tall with your feet apart, approximately three feet apart. Swivel on the balls of the feet to slightly turn the heels outward. Try to imagine that you are squashing a soft ball between the thighs all the way through this pose; it will help you to keep the balance. Raise the chest towards the ceiling and inhale. Keep a count of three or five and exhale. When you exhale slowly bend forward from the hips without bending your back till you are able to touch the floor with your palms. Take a deep breath again and straighten the spine.
