Want to improve your memory? Try these yoga exercises.
Are you constantly trying to remember where you left your keys? Or maybe you have trouble retaining a person’s name after first introductions? These are common problems that most of us struggle with, but it’s a little known fact that memory can be improved through yoga.
The practice of yoga requires a great deal of concentration, which promotes a sharp mind and clearer thinking. Try the yoga poses below and you may find yourself remembering the little things a little easier.
Sit on the floor, legs spread straight and hands placed on the floor besides the body. Bend your body in the forward direction from your hips. Lengthen your tailbone, lean forwards and stretch your hands forward towards your toes.
Sit on the floor with your legs spread straight out in front of you. Bend your right knee, lift it up with your right hand and place it on the outer side of your left thigh. Bend your left knee, lift it up with your left hand and place it on the outer edge of your right thigh. Place your hands on your knees, palms down. Close your eyes and concentrate.
Stand on the floor in a straight position. Exhale and bend downwards from your hips until your hands reach your toes. Hold the toes with your hands and remain steady.
Lie down on the floor on your back. With several jerks, try lifting up your legs in the upward direction. Rest your hands on your back so that it supports your position. Lift up your legs upwards until they become perpendicular to the floor. Rest your head/shoulder on a cushion so that it becomes comfortable for you to perform this activity.
