Why Yoga is awesome for College Students!
1. Yoga's a barometer for your life.
For those non-science majors out there, a barometer measures atmospheric pressure.
College students are under lots of pressure: we're expected to pump out 10-page papers in just a few hours, get good grades, have a social life, and make new friends from scratch ... all while learning to take care of ourselves - minds, bodies, and spirits - while on our own for the first time.
Yoga is a perfect barometer for college students because how we show up on our mats is an indication of how we show up in life. To create your own yoga barometer, decide on how often you'd like to practice. Make sure that the amount of time you dedicate aids in your overall well being!
2. Yoga makes you a better student.
There are now loads ofs tudies showing that yoga greatly improves concentration. Concentration is a leading contributor to success in school because our ability to concentrate is akin to the ability to make the most of our education.
We have to concentrate in order to hold our balance in tree pose. We can take those skills of one-pointed focus off the mat as we learn to pay attention in the lecture hall.3. You'll learn how to sit.
The purpose of yoga is to learn how to sit better. What?! You mean I'm flying from crow pose to plank pose just so I can sit later?! Well...yes, you are. The physical practice of yoga was curated by Indian monks who were meditating all day long.
After years of meditating, these monks were having a hard time sitting still. It was uncomfortable. Their legs were falling asleep. Their backs hurt. They needed a practice that would stretch out their muscles so that when they were not using them, they wouldn't be in pain.
College students are a tad similar to these Indian monks in that we have to sit for long periods of time. Discomfort is a distraction. Practicing just a few yoga poses before holing up in the library for a long night of studying can make all the difference.
4. Yoga can be a constant in a time of constant transition.
We change housing every year. We move home, back to school, to other countries, back to school again. Preparatory for the "real world," it's a totally liminal time of life. Yoga can provide some order among the chaos.
In showing up to the mat, we can feel at home in our bodies as we do not have to rely on external circumstances. We learn to cultivate that feeling for ourselves...anytime, anywhere, making even the most angst-ridden freshman appear like a confident senior.
