CNN reports on a new method for helping students to focus. Some elementary schools are employing yoga as a way to help students relax before a test or to help those restless students to move a little bit between lessons. In the article students and teachers report an improvement in focus. I also wonder if this idea and others similar too it, could help students learn some valuable lessons on health and exercise.

This is Downward Facing Dog. It's a very relaxing pose and is a starting pose for most extreme positions. Read the instructions carefully and make sure you concentrate on your breathing. As my yoga instructor might say, "If you're not breathing, it's not yoga." Enjoy!
