Yoga Poses for Tennis Players: Seated Spinal Twist

The work in this Yoga pose is to use the leverage of your arms and the movement of your breath to subtly wind and unwind the asana as you inhale and exhale. With each inhale; twist a little deeper by leveraging your right elbow against your left knee. With each exhale; allow the pose to release just an inch or two.

Kapalabhati: Skull Shining Breath for Creativity

Including pranayama exercises into your Yoga practice will clear your mind of unnecessary thoughts and revitalize your entire body with an immediate flow of fresh oxygen and nutrients. Skull Shining Breath, also known as Kapalabhati Pranayama, is one of the most effective pranayama techniques for igniting the creative spark and clearing out all of your “mental cobwebs.”

Increasing Agni in your Yoga Class: Bhastrika Pranayama

If a Yoga student has high blood pressure or a heart condition, Bhastrika Pranayama is not recommended. A daily practice of Bhastrika Pranayama, for five to ten minutes prior to asana practice or meditation, will help to calm and soothe the mind as it invigorates the body.

Warrior III for Innovation

Yoga Exercises for Mindfulness

Yoga training is a great practice for mindfulness because your yogic practice can teach you how to be more aware of your entire experience from start to finish. The great thing about adding mindfulness to your asana practice is that it can also help you to avoid injury.
