Yoga is portable, so you can take it to the classroom on test-days.

Before exam time, try these  postures to unwind your mind...

"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). "Shake your head yes and no, releasing all neck and shoulder tension. If seated, open your legs and hang your body forward between your knees."

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