"Fold over in to Rag Doll. This gets the blood flowing to the brain," says Mary Kaye Chryssicas, a Wellesley, Massachusetts-based yoga teacher, motivational speaker and the author of, "Breathe: Yoga for Teens," ($19.60, Amazon.com).

"Butterfly is a great hip-opener, so you don't get fidgety in your school chair," she says.
