Turn test tension on its head

Kids and teens have a natural curiosity for handstand, says Kate Graham, M.Ed, E-RTY and founder of Soulful Yoga Therapy of Boston, Massachusetts.

This inversion also allows them to experience increased focus, feelings of equanimity and a connection to the present moment; dissipating anxiety and worries about upcoming exams," she says.

“Chair pose is a power pose,” says Graham. “When held for a few minutes, you’ll burn off excess nervous energy and melt away tension, allowing you to find a sense of calm. The strong use of legs cultivates a feeling of groundedness to anchor your anxious energy. Extending your arms over head builds self-esteem and confidence to help you prepare for upcoming exams.”
